You showed up with bells on, dear readers, to determine the best of last year.
While this episode managed to avoid the worst of the Christmas cliches with its hypothetical elf slaughter and Santa's cannon-wielding cameo in Sheldon’s nightmares, it instead fell into a pile of its own series staples, for better or worse.
But they did give surprising nods to Smash and The Newsroom. Homeland and Game Change earned the most nominations overall.
Price, Tim, and Jen discuss the week in television! This week we get into: Homeland, The Big Bang Theory, The Vampire Diaries, American Horror Story, upcoming midseason shows, and more.
Plus: Margo Martindale returns to FX and we're excited, Storage Wars is totally fake, and SAG nominations!
Straightforward stories and a noticeable lack of Penny/Leonard relationship drama made for a second straight week of awesomeness on The Big Bang Theory.
Sheldon and Howard's fight over a parking space was never about the space itself, it was about Sheldon being the “better” of the two guys.
Plus: A Home Improvement reunion on Last Man Standing, MacGyver is headed to Apt. 23, and Fox adapts a telenova.
For once, Penny wasn't the party I wanted to give a swirlie to all episode long. That dubious honor certainly goes to Leonard.
While Penny and Leonard are perpetually stuck in the awkward early-dating phase of their relationship, Sheldon/Amy and Howard/Bernadette are ready for the advanced classes.
Plus: Nikita changes time slots, The Carrie Diaries has a premiere date, and more Whitney for NBC?
While Penny's inferiority complex when it comes to her highly educated friends tends to come and go depending on TBBT's need for conflict, it was in full swing this week when she decided to take classes at the local community college.
This week, Leonard and Penny claimed the spotlight leading up to Stu's annual Halloween party at the comic shop, and they appeared to make some actual relationship progress. Now we just hope it'll stick.
Plus: NBC orders more scripts for Guys With Kids, The Vampire Diaries casts Bonnie's dad, and another viking show.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, Howard Wolowitz has finally returned from space and his storyline has already improved.
The never-ending saga of Penny and Leonard continued this week, when Sheldon hired an assistant who got along swimmingly with Leonard, and Penny’s green-eyed monster showed up to drag him into the bedroom.
Oh, okay, so we’re going to start the Penny/Leonard angst early this season? Fine.
New Girl is treating their almost-romance with maturity and a level of realism that makes their continued separation welcome rather than infuriating.
