Quick note before making fun of “The Office”: sorry about all the server issues we’ve been having lately. That’s why you may have seen prematurely published (been there) posts and clicked on inactive Twitter links and what not. It’s frustrating for everyone, and the Powers That Be are looking into it (my guess: the proverbial gerbils spinning their wheels to keep our servers on, they’re REAL – and quite possibly dead.) We appreciate you all sticking with us and everything should be fixed soon. To make up for it, here’s a picture of a corgi party.
Community (NBC, 8 p.m.) – Tonight’s episode is called “Origins of Vampire Mythology.” It’s about Britta’s ex-boyfriend, BLADE (played by Sewage Joe from “Parks and Recreation”), returning to town, and Dean Laybourne needing Dean Pelton’s assistance in getting Troy to join his air conditioning repair annex. It’s gonna be a good one. Plus, this photo. (I literally spent five minutes deciding the banner image – I regret nothing.)
The Office/Up All Night (NBC, 9-10 p.m.) – I was excited for “The Office” being back, until I read, “Robert forces [everyone] to throw a welcome party for Nellie.” Oh well. On the plus side, tonight’s the “Up All Night” finale (one-word season recap: “pleasant”), meaning “PARKS” IS BACK NEXT WEEK. Obligatory GIF after the jump.
Gruden’s QB Camp (ESPN2, 9-10 p.m.) – Gruden bugs the bejesus out of me, too, but his “QB Camp” specials are informative. Expect everyone in Indianapolis and Washington, D.C. to be watching the Deuce tonight.
Punk’d (MTV, 10 p.m.) – Hayden Panettiere punks Dianna Agron, which isn’t nearly as attractive sounding as it should be.
Eagleheart (Cartoon, 12 a.m.) – Both “Justified” and “Delocated” finished their excellent third seasons recently, so what’s a fan of U.S Marshalls and/or Adult Swim shows on at midnight to do? Watch “Eagleheart,” Chris Elliott’s excellent series about a U.S. Marshall, which airs on Adult Swim at midnight. Thanks, TV!
LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Billy Crystal and the Alabama Shakes on Letterman; Tim Allen on Leno; Danny McBride, Dianna Agron, and the Shins on Kimmel; Judd Apatow on Ferguson; Tina Fey, John Slattery, and David Chang on Fallon; Jim Gaffigan on Conan; Esperanza Spalding on Stewart; and Ben Rattray on Colbert.
