After a long, dark Winter, it's time to laugh again. For the first time in months, NBC's whole Thursday comedy lineup is new. That's right: The Office, Scrubs, and 30 Rock all return tonight, and I'm looking forward to nothing more than popping some popcorn and settling in for a long night with my favorite funny folks.
Between these clips and my interview with Rainn Wilson and Greg Daniels, I have a pretty good sense of how tonight's Office is going to go: Michael and Jan throw a dinner party; inappropriateness and hilarity ensue. As for the other three shows:
- On Earl, a still-comatose earl continues living out his dream life with Billie and their new baby boy. Meanwhile, Randy realizes that every item he completes from Earl's list helps Earl get better, so he turns his attention to a stolen motorcycle.
- On 30 Rock, we finally get a peek at Jack Donaghy's immensely successful reality show, the steamy MILF Island. Meanwhile, someone gives Page Six some nasty quotes about Jack and pressures the writers to give up the traitor.
- On Scrubs, Turk decides to learn Spanish for Carla as an anniversary present, and there's some kind of caper involving Dr. Kelso's breakfast.
