From LA Examiner: Photos from 'The Middle', 'Suburgatory', & 'Modern Family's' Thanksgivings; Justin Long on 'New Girl'; Joel McHale Shops 'Community'


"PHOTO PREVIEW: The Hecks celebrate Thanksgiving (again) on The Middle"

Year after year, the Heck family on The Middle shows they know how to do Thanksgiving-- maybe not entirely happily, but traditionally nonetheless. Just last year it was Mike (Neil Flynn)'s turn in the hotseat as his family stopped by for the holiday meal, and now, with "Thanksgiving III," it is Frankie (Patricia Heaton)'s wacky relatives who come a'calling. But at least this time the meal is made in someone else's kitchen! ... [MORE]


"PHOTO PREVIEW: Suburgatory serves up quite the festive Thanksgiving"

We have to admit it: the Suburgatory street seems like the place that would go all-out for holidays. But after seeing how opposed they were to traditional Halloween decorations, we got a little worried that come Christmas there would not be as much festive cheer as the season might warrant. There's still a few weeks until we'll know for sure, but seeing the preview for their Thanksgiving episode, we are definitely feeling better about the odds! ... [MORE]


"PHOTO PREVIEW: Josh Gad steps out of animation and into Modern Family"

TV fans these days would probably recognize Josh Gad by his voice best. He is, after all, starring as Mondo, the new kid in school, in MTV's Good Vibes. But soon he will be popping up in all his live-action glory on a very special episode of Modern Family... [MORE]




"PHOTO PREVIEW: Justin Long guest stars on New Girl"

Starting next week fans of FOX' New Girl are in for a special treat: special guest star Justin Long! Long will make his debut as "Paul," a music teacher at Jess (Zooey Deschanel)'s school on whom she has had her eye for quite some time, and who pops up for a very special holiday celebration. And now LA TV Insider Examiner has a sneak peek of him in action on set! ... [MORE]


"Joel McHale talks “man date” with Dean Pelton on Community"


When Community first hit the airwaves three short years ago, the self-absorbed, materialism-obsessed ex-lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) was very much at the center of the show. He was the one responsible-- inadvertently, but it still counts-- for bringing the Greendale study group together. He was the man able to talk them all down whenever they’d get worked up-- and that was so often if he thought to con them all into paying him, he’d be able to keep himself in fancy faucets for years to come! He was also the ringleader of some pretty great adventures, even if he’d often try to get out of them in the first place. But as time went on, Jeff found himself more immersed in the group than he ever wanted to be. He’d still fight them, but it often seemed to be more for show; his heart was always with the group and their weird yet wonderful way of going about life... [MORE]


"Going through Weeds withdrawal? Showtime has another fix for you!"

After Weeds' seventh season finale ended with a bang-- literally-- the fate of Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) seemed grim. Actually, the fate of the show itself seemed grim. The finale came and went with no word from Showtime on whether or not the Botwin clan would find a way to worm their way out of trouble once again. Until now. Showtime announced today that they are, in fact, picking up an eighth season of Weeds... [MORE]


"The CW keeps Misha Collins around, casts him on Ringer"

Just when we thought we were out, they pull us back in! Okay, Ringer, you may have spent the majority of your first half of the season lying to the audience, throwing red herring after red herring in at the last possible moment (literally) in each episode, making us wonder why we had bothered with the previous forty-some-odd minutes if they were all lies (and kind of dull ones at that), but then you go and cast yet another beloved CW star from one of our other beloved CW shows, and we fall for it, hook, line, and sinker...
