NBC Thursday Night Comedy Review of The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Community, and More 2011-02-18 11:24:07

Which NBC Comedy Owned Thursday Night This Week?

NBC delivered another all-new block of episodes with its Thursday night comedy line-up, so now it's time for the battle of the funniest. Community seemed to switch places with The Office in its documentary-themed episode, while The Office adopted Community's film-reference style. Parks and Recreation saw the meltdown of Ben, and Liz tries to get over her breakup with Carol on 30 Rock. Todd welcomes his boss to India on Outsourced, and the Perfect Couples deal with gender roles in their relationships (and have a Mad Men party!).

I chuckled a lot during the three-hour block, but if I had to pick a favorite? I'd go with Community for Troy's reaction to meeting LeVar Burton alone. Now it's your turn to choose: which Thursday night NBC comedy did you think was the funniest this week?

Adam Scott owned Thursday night! The acting he did with his body language alone is Emmy worthy!

Last night didn’t thrill. I skipped Community – I think the show has lost its identity and just veers between mean and sappy. The Office was amusing, but not enough to make me forget how happy I am that Michael is leaving. Parks & Planning was good special and 30 Rock was funny but I’m tired of “Liz is old & tired, Jack is vital.” Perfect Couples & Outsourced are embarrassingly dull.

It is a toss up between P and R and Community. I love them both for different reasons. I HATE Perfect Couples and Outsourced. I have a love/hate relationship with Thursday nights.

If I could I'd also throw votes in for Parks and Recreation and The Office, especially the latter, simply superb.

Community. Maybe it's because I am bias but there has to be a reason that the show has me so faithful. I will state again and again why Community is my favorite show on television, case in point:when other shows' characters have become bipolar,it's a characteristic of bad writing, but when it happens on Community, it's a characteristic of character. Okay, I know that doesn't make much sense, but I mean that when Jeff and Troy, and ocasionally the whole lot act bipolar, it's because it is truthfully in their nature and not because the writers are trying to switch up the storyline. Dan Harmon, you have me on a string, and I'm okay with that, just keep making me laugh.

I wasn't expecting much from The Office, but this season continues to delight. It wins my vote for Goldenface alone! Is anyone else out there still watching Outsourced?
