The best comedy TV episodes of 2012: 'New Girl,' 'Chuck' and 'Community'

2012 was a good year for comedy. The explosion of sitcoms over the past couple of years made it virtually impossible to narrow down the very best of the best, even if it I ignored the hilarity of shows like "Parks and Recreation," "Raising Hope" and "The Neighbors." (Yes, "The Neighbors."

While I do find many comedies hilarious, it's tough to identify with slackers in their 20s or married couples joking their way into middle age. This isn't the case with "New Girl."

The holidays can be a little schizophrenic when it comes to fashion. Though holiday parties tend to help keep things glamorous and elegant, every other minute of the season tends to pull us toward wacky and unfortunate. It's difficult to say who's to blame. All we know is that there's a time-honored tradition of wearing sweaters that should require a permit and shirts that look like they're made of actual fruitcake. Frankly, you don't even need to have the sound on your television to know it's the season. For weeks we've been paraded a heaping handful of sartorial nuts.Aside from Halloween, there is probably not a more drastic transformation in our wardrobe than in the 24 hours spanning Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. On the Eve, we're probably trying to look our best at any last minute parties or church functions. But somewhere in the night, sugarplum fairies swoop in and put us in some...
