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 Dixie! New 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

Maybe 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
It’s the thought that counts when you give a gift, but it really counts when you’re giving it on a scripted TV show and millions of fans are watching. On last night’s Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope claimed the title of Best Gifter Ever multiple times over. SPOILER ALERT, skip to the next graph if you haven’t seen the episode: READ FULL STORY
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.

Call it a fairytale romance. EW.com readers are officially enamored with ABC’s fairytale drama, Once Upon a Time. After stealing readers’ hearts last week, Once Upon a Time finishes on top of the leaderboard for the second week in a row. Close behind it, however, is this week’s much-talked-about, Hurricane Irene-centric How I Met Your Mother, which ended with a boom louder than any thunderclap we’ve heard.

We at EW scoured the TV line-up last night to find the best one-liners from your favorite shows. This week certainly wasn’t going out with a whimper. From Andy Bernard’s tambourine-bashing machismo on The Office to heart-ripping aggression courtesy of The Vampire Diaries Damon Salvatore, not to mention some seriously graphic threats from Denmark (a.k.a. Model UN representative Leslie Knope) on Parks and Recreation, Thursday’s big boys and girls came to play. Read on…

ABC’s Once Upon a Time series premiere debuted to the best numbers for a new network drama this season, and this week, with an episode that revealed the backstory for why the Evil Queen cast her curse, the show was also No. 1 with EW.com readers. The alphabet network is having a great week all around, with three of its shows in readers’ top five. Check out the complete rankings below: READ FULL STORY
Since the start of the fall TV season, only two shows have been tops with EW.com readers: The Vampire Diaries and Breaking Bad. To that storied list we can now add NBC’s wily and weird Thursday night cult comedy Community, which tickled and (perhaps) terrified viewers with a Halloween anthology episode. Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time‘s series premiere landed just out of the top five. Check out the complete rankings below: READ FULL STORY
