Aziz Ansari wants 'Scandal' to crossover with 'Parks and Recreation': Here are 5 other crossovers we want to see

Odds are, if you’re a television lover, you have more than one favorite show. And sometimes, you might get to thinking about what it would be like if those worlds collided. And while most of the time, it doesn’t work — Mad Men and The Carrie Diaries?! — there are a few instances where things just might click. For Aziz Ansari, that moment involved an intense binge-watching session of Scandal and dreaming about being in the presence of the woman-in-white, Ms. Olivia Pope.

“I’m such a big fan of the show,” Ansari told the LA Times. “I watched it in a few days. I was obsessed with Oliva and Fitz. I was obsessed with the voting card thing. I was obsessed with the weird naked fight. I was obsessed with everything.”

So how does he think a crossover between Scandal and Parks and Recreation would work? “I secretly believe they are in the same universe. I think Harrison and Tom are college roommates and they used to have an R & B group together called … Too Much is Not E-Nuff. We have to shoot that, the crossover episode. It’s really simple: There’s some sort of issue that Leslie needs to deal with, and then Tom’s like, ‘Duh, lemme call my guy’ and then it’s like boom, boom, boom, glitter, glitter, glitter, Pope & Associates magically appear. Ann who? It’s Knope and Olivia Pope now.”

We don’t hate this idea. Leslie does have a few things that could be “handled.” And seeing the perfectly dressed Harrison in any sort of R & B outfit would just be heavenly. And this got us thinking: What other shows would we love to see collide?

Here are a few crossovers we dreamed up:

I'll be there for you: Mini-'Friends' reunions we can't get enough of

After hearing the latest news that the Bings are back, we couldn’t help but imagine what Ms. Chanandler Bong and his wife are up to now. Although we like to think that they are busy raising two very competitive and witty children, and that Joey is in fact living in an apartment above their garage (and teaching their children the art of “How you doin'”), we don’t actually know.

So while our Friends-loving hearts still wait for a real reunion (fingers crossed), we currently get through the day by reliving the handful of mini-reunions we’ve enjoyed over the years. Here’s a look back at the many times that we’ve sat at home and remembered the days of Joey’s sandwiches, Ross’ divorces and, of course, smelly cat: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: Plenty of fireworks with 'Spider-Man' and 'The Walking Dead'

Happy Fourth of July Weekend, Part I. It remains to be seen whether July 4 falling on a Wednesday is the best or worst possible scenario for festivities celebrating our nation’s 236th birthday. But at least we have a returning hero who wears the red, white, and (black and) blue on his sleeve. Spider-Man swings back into action after disappearing for… well, only five years. Andrew Garfield might be a Brit, but he was born in Los Angeles, so his Spidey is more All-American that the current Batman and upcoming Superman. U – S – A! U – S – A!!

Sunday, July 1
Euro 2012 final, Spain vs. Italy, ESPN, 2:45 ET p.m.

The most-watched sporting event this weekend won’t be at Yankee Stadium or the grass courts at Wimbledon. It will be a soccer match played in Ukraine, where two powerhouses square off for the European championship. READ FULL STORY
