“I promised myself I was not going to cry tonight, and I have already broken that promise five times,” says Chris to Ben in this wedding episode. I have to say, five times sounds about right. Also, if “Ben and Leslie” doesn’t prove that Amy Poehler deserves her Emmy, I don’t know what the Emmy voters need. Leslie was hilarious (that Tim Gunn impression), lovable (a 70-page first draft on her vows), and amazingly caring (refusing to have her wedding without Ron, who is like a father to her).

Happy Valentine’s Day, PopWatchers!
In honor of the day of love (or a manufactured holiday of corporate greed) I got to thinking about fictional characters I’m in love with. Ask any of my friends, and they’ll tell you the list is pretty long. I can’t help it! Whether I’m swooning over The OC reruns and wondering where Seth Cohen was for me in high school, or contemplating whether I’d be willing to live in the 1920s if it meant Matthew Crawley could be my boyfriend (yes), if there’s a charming guy on television, I’ve probably wanted to to marry him at some point. Danny from The Mindy Project? Been there. Jim Halpert? Welcome to my 2005. This Valentine’s Day, I’m choosing not to narrow it down any further when it comes to fictional boyfriends. It’s a four-way tie! This (fake) holiday is the best.
Check out some staffers’ picks for their fictional valentines below, and then be sure to tell us what character you’re secretly hoping to have some chocolates delivered from today. READ FULL STORY »
“There’s been a mistake. You’ve accidentally given me the food that my food eats.”

Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation tackled the Pawnee City Council’s prehistoric gender relations head on. In an effort to one-up the all-male sanitation department, Leslie and April tried their hand at a garbage route, with mixed results. Meanwhile, Chris struggled to understand his new relationship with Shauna; Ron and Anne babysat Diane’s kids; and Tom, Ben, and Andy attempted to play basketball. Colossal failures and hilarious lines abounded. Here are the best:
I can’t keep referring to basketball players as Khloe Kardashian’s husband and his friends.

Just because most people don’t do a Golden Globes pool doesn’t mean you can’t predict if Homeland will build on its Emmy domination. Let’s take the 11 TV categories to a vote. Remember, this is who you think will win, not necessarily who you want to win. READ FULL STORY »
Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.
Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012′s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.
So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY »
Now here’s some NBC synergy we can get behind. Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones recently stepped into a cramped closet with Saturday Night Live writer Mike O’Brien for a new episode of O’Brien’s web series, 7 Minutes in Heaven. Their wine-fueled conversation covered everything from what makes Jones either “horny” or “super horny,” why she’s got some confusing feelings about Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, and what it would be like if the actress were a “homely girl” who became a smoking hottie by putting her hair up and donning a pair of glasses. Eat your heart out, Kitty Sanchez.
