EW's Morning Bite: And the best sound bite from last night is...

Submitted by Cleopatricide:

“’Webster’s Dictionary defines?’ That’s the Jim Belushi of speech openings. It accomplishes nothing, but everyone keeps using it and nobody knows why.”

– Annie (Alison Brie), after Jeff (Joel McHale) began a speech with the clichéd introduction on Community

NBC’s epic Super Bowl promo features literally everyone on NBC -- VIDEO

Whether or not you were happy with the outcome of the Super Bowl, you’ll find it hard not to smile while watching NBC’s ridiculously fun promo (which aired during the pre-show) featuring the casts of… well, just about everything on NBC.

The Peacock gathered its various stars together for a super-sized Super Bowl commercial featuring a rousing rendition of “Brotherhood of Man” from the Broadway musical “How to Succeed in Business (Without Really Trying).” READ FULL STORY

Who's to blame when a rabid Internet fanbase doesn't help a show?

There’s been good news and bad news coming out of NBC’s day at the TV critics’ semi-annual press tour. NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt assured reporters that Community will return this season — he’s just not sure when. Asked about its odds of renewal for a fourth season, however, he became cagey: “I don’t know. Those are hard questions to answer at this point … we’ll make that decision closer to the upfront.” His views on Chuck, which airs its series finale Jan. 27, were more clear. “Did you see the ratings?,” he asked when questioned about the decision to burn episodes over the holidays. “That rabid fanbase going crazy on the net didn’t come to the show. Chuck’s time had come. Chuck is over, let’s alert the masses.”

If you’re a fan of Chuck, those words are tough to take. You will have invested roughly 91 hours in the show, and while you can understand why the network bean-counters looking at the big picture would see it as “over,” that doesn’t diminish your disappointment and loss. Why’s it so hard to accept? READ FULL STORY

Fall TV post-mort: What are you still watching? DVR'ing?

Let’s think back for a moment to the start of the fall TV season when we were giddy with hope and optimism about all the new (Hart of DixieNew Girl! The X Factor!) and old (Modern Family! Glee! Fringe!) shows we’d watch in the months ahead. Back then I posted a series of blog posts outlining what I planned to view live versus DVR every night of the week. At the time, I really did have every intention of sticking to my schedule, but naturally as the weeks wore on and plotlines developed my interests began to waver, for better and for worse. I’m sure you know what I mean, unless you’re one of those people who actually follows through with your goals, in which case we can’t be friends. Nevertheless, now that we’re in the midst of the dreaded hiatus period, I figured it would be a good time to reflect on where we started off this season and where we ended up. Check out my day-by-day post-mort below, beginning with all the shows I so naively intended to watch: READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011: What were the year's most awesome TV props?

park-recs-pyramidMaybe it’s because it’s the holiday season and we’re thinking what a great gift Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness (see the full-size image) would make, but as 2011 comes to a close, we find ourselves reminiscing about the best props seen on TV. We’ll start the list. Please, add your picks. Remember: The objects don’t have to have been introduced in 2011, but they must have been used in episodes that aired this year.  READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011 (Behind the Scenes): 'Community' creator Dan Harmon on a clip show like no other

Some of the most important people in entertainment aren’t the ones you see on your TV or movie screen every week. Casual audiences probably don’t even know them by name. But rest assured, without these people, your favorite TV shows or movies wouldn’t be what they are. As 2011 comes to a close, EW.com wanted to honor some of the hardworking names and faces from behind the scenes for their outstanding achievements. Here, Dan Harmon opens up about a clip show episode of Community that was streets ahead of all the others. For more behind the scenes access to the year’s best TV and movie scenes, click here for EW.com‘s Best of 2011: Behind the Scenes coverage.

“Paradigms of Human Memory” was an experiment I’ve wanted to do for a very long time: using the structure of the “clip show” to tell a story, same as you might use the structure of a sonnet, phone book, or haiku. READ FULL STORY

'Community': Could this really be the end?

Ever since news broke that Community was being temporarily benched from the NBC schedule to make way for newer, hopefully-more-audience-attracting programming, I’ve been living in denial. I can’t imagine a world without Star Burns, Ring-a-Ding-Dean and Magnitude — Pop Pop! The Greendale gang have been good sports about the whole affair, tweeting their support (#SixSeasonsAndAMovie) and invading Joel McHale’s other show The Soup en masse to show us a happy, quirky family.

Bud sadly, today I am forced to face the music. Tonight’s Christmas-themed episode “Regional Holiday Music,” which finds the gang filling in for the GCC Glee Club, is the final episode before the Hiatus of Possible Doom. READ FULL STORY

'Community' breaks first rule of 'Beetlejuice': Don't say Beetlejuice three times! (Right, Beetlejuice?)

Three years might seem like an awfully long time to set up the punchline to a joke — especially when you know what the result of said punchline is — but leave it to Community to still manage to make it a satisfying payoff. Each season, a character on the show has uttered the phrase “Beetlejuice.” Since we’re in the third season (and, please, oh please, not last), that means the word has been said on the series three times. You know what that means, Beetlejuice fans! Watch the Community “Beetlejuice” sequences here in which they summon everyone’s favorite bio-exorcist: READ FULL STORY

TV Leaderboard: 'New Girl' gobble gobbles its way into EW.com reader's hearts

It may have started as one of the fall seasons most divisive new shows, but New Girl firmly grabbed the hearts of EW.com readers this week with its Thanksgiving episode, in which Jess invited prospective mate Paul Gunslinger (Justin Long) over for a turkey dinner partially cooked in a clothing dryer. Elsewhere, How I Met Your Mother‘s ongoing Barney/Robin will-they-or-won’t-they-oh-they-did-but-then-they-ultimately-didn’t plot line kept the show in second place for another week.
