"Grimm" has surprised me a bit by still being on NBC's schedule this late in the season. It's not that I hated the show (as you can see in my initial review), but simply that it didn't seem remarkable enough to survive on Friday nights, on NBC, opposite a couple of pre-established sci-fi/fantasy shows in "Fringe" and "Supernatural." But it actually opened to pretty good numbers (especially by NBC standards), and while the ratings have dipped since the premiere, it still handily beats the other two genre shows each week.

Even without scripts, this is one of the quickest, funniest casts on television
Another week has gone by without any news of when or where "Community" will return to NBC's schedule, which means it's time once again for an example of why I miss this show so much and would like it back on the air, ASAP.
For the first time in this series, I'm not going with a clip from the show itself. Instead, I'm embedding the full interview I did with Joel McHale, Yvette Nicole Brown and Jim Rash at Comic-Con last summer. It's nearly 20 minutes long — in other words, practically as long as a "Community" episode itself — and among the more satisfying, entertaining experiences of my professional life.
Also, it mentions furries.

I don't write about "NCIS" all that often because, as entertaining as it is, it doesn't particularly lend itself to episode-by-episode analysis.
