’30 Rock’s’ 30 best guest stars

’30 Rock’s’ 30 best guest stars

My favorites out of this list have to be Dean Winters, Will Arnett of course, because he's one of the funniest guys out there, but also two guys you'd never peg as having great comedic chops but totally rocked it (no pun intended) on 30 Rock - Jon Hamm and Matt Damon. I didn't always love this show or think it was the funniest show on television, but it had terrific guest stars and really utilized them well!

From 'Psych' Season 7 premiere: Satchel Gizmo, Soupcan Flynn and 5 more things to look forward to

Oh, I had forgotten where the story left off!!! That's how long it has been! I cannot, don't ever abandon me again! I'll even put up with the Shawn-Juliet romance - bleh - as long as I can have my Shawn-Gus bromance back!!!

Read the whole story here.

Psych returns Feb. 27 at 10 p.m. EST on USA.

Mad Men sixth season premieres April 7 with 2-hour episode

Matthew Weiner, show creator, is notoriously tight-lipped about Mad Men and is scarily good at controlling spoiler leakage, so that's pretty much all we know about the season premiere - but knowing a return date is better than not knowing anything at all! And Weiner must be a mindreader, because I had just been wondering about this last night, whether or not we would have to wait as long as we did for the fifth season to premiere (there was almost a year and a half gap between the fourth season finale in October 2010 and the fifth season premiere in March 2012) - April will be 10 months since the fifth season finale...woo hoo to a less than one year wait, but no wonder I'm going through Mad Men withdrawal. I mean, surisly! (Though I'll admit, it's probably the show's not conforming to the 22 episode, every fall through spring standard US network scheduling that allows it to maintain its creative storytelling superiority...something I'll have to keep reminding myself for the next few months).

Of course, with Baby Girl due to arrive April 3, she is now under strict orders to arrive before, or after, but not ON April 7! A happy mama is a Mad Men-premiere watching mama! :)

From 'New Girl': Schmidt and Robby, a match made in CeCe-loving, d-bag heaven

New Girl has become hit or miss for me this season, and Schmidt became such a popular character in the first season that this season it's sometimes felt like the writers have been cramming him down our throats, turning his adorable douchery into just, well, douchery.

But this? Yes. The rest of last night's episode was blah for me, but the Schmidt and Robby bromance? That I can totally get behind. That one storyline reminded me why I fell in love with Schmidt in the first place (besides my ever-loyal love for Max Greenfield as Leo on Veronica Mars). More of this please!

Speaking of television, did you catch the Golden Globes? Are you like me, an active hater of the self-aggrandizing of these awards, or are you a fan? What did you think of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as hosts? My girl crush love for those two knows no bounds - I could watch them read the telephone book, I think, if telephone books still existed.
