First Look: Malcolm-Jamal Warner Comes Home to NBC

Community fans have long understood that Shirley's ex-husband, Andre, is a womanizing jerk. So what to make of the fact that he's actually a friendly guy — and played by the actor who portrayed lovable Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show? Malcolm-Jamal Warner joins the NBC comedy January 20 for a three-episode arc in which Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) and Andre are dating again — and Shirley informs the gang she's pregnant, though Troy (Donald Glover) realizes the baby may not be Andre's. "You've heard all these awful things Andre's done, and then you meet him and it's Bill Cosby's son!" says Glover. Brown agrees that Warner "comes with such inherent goodwill. Just his face rehabilitates Andre immediately." To Read More Click Here.

Joel McHale Teases Regis About His Age on 'Regis and Kelly': 'On the Periodic Table of Television You Are Carbon' (VIDEO)

Showing absolutely no respect for his elders whatsoever, Joel McHale of 'Community' takes several potshots at Regis Philbin's age on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated). First, McHale jokes that 79-year-old Philbin "knew the Wright brothers." Then, he segues into a story involving an old couple he traveled with on a flight, but starts to say they were nowhere near as old as Philbin himself. But the final insult comes as McHale delivers a backhanded compliment on Philbin's long-running career. "You are the king of all television," he said. "Like, when radio started, you probably went on radio and ... you just started bursting into people's homes." "That's the third one!" complained Philbin. "When does he stop?!" Source & Video

'Community' misfits get in the holiday spirit with a 'Rudolph'-esque stop-motion episode

This season of Community has been, among other things, a confident ode to pop culture, taking on everything from the zombie genre and RoboCop to a Secret Garden/Mean Girls overlap. And now, the students of Greendale are taking on another gem: the stop-motion holiday special. We first heard about it this fall, and now, there’s a glorious photo to further whet the collective appetite. Community is the first show I watch on Thursday nights, and that’s saying something. I love 30 Rock, I love Big Bang Theory, I have to watch The Office, Grey’s has had this ridiculous resurgence this season and I’m obsessed again, and sometimes Bones can’t wait for the weekend. But my first choice is always Community. To Read More Click Here.

TV ratings: CBS drops but still wins Thursday

Fast National ratings for Thursday, Nov. 11, 2010 Thursday's ratings offered a mixed bag of ups and downs: CBS fell compared to last week but still led across the board for the night. ABC was down some too as "Private Practice" came back to earth, but NBC was up slightly -- at least for now. The network's Baltimore affiliate aired an NFL game between the Ravens and Atlanta Falcons that is skewing the numbers somewhat. In the network race, CBS led by a wide margin, averaging 12.7 million viewers and a 7.8 rating/13 share in households. ABC (7.8 million, 5.2/9) came in second, beating out FOX (7 million, 4.2/7). NBC's 5.6 million viewers and 3.4/6 were good enough to capture fourth place. The CW dipped a little compared to last week with 2.9 million viewers and a 1.8/3. CBS also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.0 rating, beating out ABC's 2.7. NBC finished third at 2.4, followed by FOX at 2.1 and The CW at 1.2. To Read More Click Here.
