NBC Thursday Comedies - Who Did Christmas Best? - Featured

If you tuned into the full NBC comedy lineup last night of Community, Parks & Recreation, The Office and 30 Rock - you probably noticed that there was a whole lot of Christmas.

So - which show do you think tackled the holidays the best?

Was it Community 's "Comparative Religion" with a guest starring Anthony Michael hall?

Was it Parks & Recreation 's "Christmas Scandal''' - a hilarious sendup of governmental sex scandals?

Was it The Office 's "Secret Santa" - with Phyllis and Michael's battle for who got to be Santa Claus (but also the re-hashing of the slightly less festive "business is in trouble" recession plot)?

Or was it 30 Rock 's similarly-titled (and by similarly I mean identical) "Secret Santa" - guest starring Julianne Moore?

Which did you watch? Who did the holidays best? Personally, I think P&R has been on a roll!

I agree, Parks and Recreation has been seriously bringing it this season. I loved basically everything that Leslie did. Also, appreciated that the Christmas/gift giving was the b-plot and the continuing relationship between April and Andy.
30 Rock was all sorts of awesome, so maybe we're working with a tie here.
The Office - It wasn't special, but it was great to find a feasible way to continue the show even though the company has been in hot water.
I still don't understand any hype surrounding Community.

The Office gave me exactly what I wanted out of Christmas: Michael ruining yet another party, some tension for the company that'll spell big things for the back half of the season, and some Andy-Erin love!
Community was actually pretty solid with its family message. Parks and Rec... it was pretty funny, I love the show, but I don't think it was as good as The Office this week.

Not kidding at all. I don't find Community engaging or all that funny. It's not bad, but not great.

Community is awesome, Chevy Chase is absolutely perfect in his role. Every character, even the small recuring roles like Eric Christopher Olsen, John Oliver, and Ken Jong are just perfectly cast. This thursdays chirstmas episode did not disappoinnt, laugh out loud funny as usual

I'm very much in love with Community. It's quick witted, relatable, and every character is entertaining right down to their subtle nuances. The best show since Arrested Development.

Parks and Recreation. The show can do no wrong at the moment.

Community and 30 Rock were both pretty good. If I had to choose it would be Community, but only because of the hilarious fight.
