Darren Criss and his finely coiffed friends from Dalton Academy made the talk show rounds this week to promote the release of the Warblers very own album, Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers. The group stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to perform “Teenage Dream,” the song that first had us snapping along to their sweet voices. Afterwards Criss managed to charm the
pants jacket off host Ellen DeGeneres, as the two talked about his recent road trip to Coachella with costars Chord Overstreet and Harry Shum Jr., his brother (Chuck Criss of Freelance Whales), and his accidental snub of Gwyneth Paltrow. A true gentleman, he capped things off by presenting his fellow blazer enthusiast with the ultimate sign of achievement: her very own Warbler jacket. Check out the performance, as well as Criss’ (shirtless) anti-Blaine look from the music festival, below: READ FULL STORY

30 Rock celebrated 100 episodes with gas-induced hallucinations, flashbacks, and bouts of nostalgia last night. Considering there are five seasons of material to take from and millions upon millions of quoteables, I loved hearing the classic Donaghy logic (“It’s after six. What are we, farmers?”), revisiting vintage Crazy Tracy (“I am a Jedi!”), and even got excited at the sight of dumb Dennis Duffy. But its earlier Thursday night sibling may have delivered a smarter approach to the hackneyed TV trope.
Community defied convention yet again, by creating a clip show out of entirely new scenes posed as memories each character had from earlier episodes this season. READ FULL STORY
In her new book Bossypants, Tina Fey gets candid about the decision to leave the comfort of Saturday Night Live and embark on her own with 30 Rock. She explains that while the show amassed critical success, the goal was always to become a hit with viewers (“We were trying to make Home Improvement and we did it wrong”), and 30 Rock‘s ratings left the cast and crew afraid to make long-term plans during the early years.
Yet, somehow (by the hammer of Thor, perhaps?), Fey and her gang have made it through almost five seasons, and celebrate 100 episodes with tonight’s hour-long special. With TGS on the verge of cancellation, Lemon will be pulling out all the stops to ensure she won’t have to stoop so low as to get a job at a magazine, or become the world’s worst hooker. In honor of this milestone for our beloved little show, here’s a look at some favorite episodes from the last five seasons:
“The Source Awards” (Season 1)
Jack’s burgeoning sparkling wine company becomes the sponsor for The Source Awards, causing Tracy and old foe Ridikolus (LL Cool J) to confront their beef with one another. READ FULL STORY
While he’s melted our hearts for nearly seven seasons on The Office, Big Tuna has failed to make a huge splash on the big screen. Strange, huh, especially given the immense likability of Jim Halpert. (“Niagara” will forever live in infamy. How many men booked surprise trips on the Maid of the Mist after seeing their girlfriends tear up while watching the episode?) With Steve Carell’s impending departure, it seems there’s no better time for John Krasinski to seal his fate as a legitimate leading man. But why isn’t he one already? READ FULL STORY
Revel in the glory of motherhood, nerds. Tina Fey has a bun in the oven. But how will the Bossypants author’s recently announced pregnancy affect our pal Liz Lemon? The folks at 30 Rock have yet to reveal if or how Fey’s news will affect the show, but when you really think about it, it doesn’t really matter: Lemon has vaguely resembled a pregnant woman for the last five years (except for the minor detail of getting her period for 61 straight days). While you might be wondering how Fey can work her bundle of joy into next season’s plot, here’s a quick list of ways her pregnancy won’t change a thing, as it already fits in with Lemon’s trademarked quirks:
• Whether she’s wearing it as a joke or not, the slanket aficionado likes her bi-curious fashion choices and DIY finds (Duane Reade bags as underwear) on the larger side, which gives Fey infinite room to hide a growing belly and prevent any dirty looks from that office gossip Brian Williams.

TV prom season is upon us, and depending on your experience in high school, these fictitious events can either bring back horrible memories you’ve been trying to suppress (by watching so much television, natch) or make you jealous that your alma mater didn’t have enough money for a fancy ice sculpture.
Last night’s Parenthood offered up one of the first takes on ye old high school tradition of the season (not to worry, there’ll be plenty more), and as always, the episode aimed to get the entire family involved, even though only cousins Haddie (Sarah Ramos) and Amber (Mae Whitman) were attending.

One way to increase your chances at a second season pick up: Embark on an expletive-laden rampage on live television. For all the blandness of the six-episode season of The Real Housewives of Miami, last night’s liiiiiive reunion special was pretty spicy. Given the history of these reunions, it was bold of Andy Cohen and his team to brave live television with these hungry reality stars in tow, all of whom saved their most scandalous revelations for last night’s hour-long special. Adrianna seemed to being carrying the Miami cast’s hopes for a renewal on her finely sculpted shoulders, slinging accusations of cheating Cristy’s way, as well as dropping a bomb about her supposed relationship with a 19-year-old (where was all this dish six weeks ago?). At least the tape delay engineer had a busy night.
