Thursday Night TV Open Thread

Due to some prior engagements last night, I was, unfortunately, only able to watch 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation. I’m so sorry! I’m so sorry I won’t be able to tell you that The Office was better than it has been but still not great and that Up All Night was totally watchable and that The League was ok and that It’s Always Sunny was the best. One thing I can tell you, though, is that both Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock were great! (Though that might be because I was VERY tired when I watched them.) Parks and Recreation, especially. I laughed out loud at “Hey, we’re still going to assassinate him, right?” “Don’t say that.” and I was ALONE IN MY ROOM. (I also laughed out loud at “It’s not my favorite shirt, but it IS my least favorite shirt.” And LOVED out loud when Tom talked about the racist emoji. It’s about time someone on TV talked about the racist emoji.) But it was nice to see April and Adam Scott have a nice moment at the end, and it was nice to see Adam Scott and Leslie have a nice moment at the end, and I wish they would just bring all of those characters back together already. (Though I don’t think this episode suffered from them being apart.) At the beginning of 30 Rock I thought for a second that they already did a plot line wherein Tracy thought women weren’t funny, but then I remembered that it was actually the plot like that dealt with what he said about gay people. THEY RIP THESE STORIES RIGHT FROM THE NEWS PAGES! It’s like Law and Order but with comedy. (But when will they finally tackle the Dan Harmon scandal?!) It was a good episode, though. “I liked it.” Fave of the season so far. WHAT DID YOU GUYS THINK? Did you watch all the shows, or did you have other things to do, too? What did you think? Tell me.
