Community Cast, Creator Preview the 'Most Ambitious Season We've Ever Done!'
As of now, there are no paintball wars or zombiepocalypses to speak of in Community‘s third season (premiering this Thursday at 8/7c). But showrunner Dan Harmon and the cast of the innovative NBC comedy tell TVLine, and thus viewers, that there’s no cause for concern.
“It’s not ‘Chicken Fingers’ [a la the Season 1 episode ‘Contemporary American Poultry’], but this season is the most ambitious that we’ve ever done,” Joel McHale says candidly. …READ MORE
Community Scoop: [Spoiler] Moves In With New Roomies Troy and Abed!
TVLine has learned that Community‘s Troy (Donald Glover) and Abed (Danny Pudi) aren’t the only study buddies shacking up in Season 3. Another member of the Greendale gang is moving in with the bromancers early in the school year, and it’s not who you might expect. (No, it’s not the perpetually homeless Chang.) READ MORE

Question: Can you give me some really good stuff about what is going to happen on Gossip Girl? —Saloni
Ausiello: Good stuff coming your way in 3, 2, 1… The show is pulling out “all the stops” for its milestone 100th episode in January, according to executive producer Josh Safran. “We want to honor the [fact] that it’s the 100th episode,” he says. “We know that we are very lucky to be coming by it, and we’re going to respect that. So we definitely want to make it feel like it is a special event. Let’s put it this way — it’s not going to be a clip show.” Hmm… Safran already confirmed that Blair will spend the first chunk of the season planning her royal nups to Louis, so it stands to reason that the wedding itself would take place around midseason. See where I’m going with this, people?
Question: I’m still confused about Taylor Momsen’s status on Gossip Girl. Is she gone for good? Gossip Girl isn’t the same without Lil J. —Jen
Ausiello: Sources confirm to TVLine that Jenny will return to the UES when …READ MORE

Eye on Emmy: Alison Brie Embraces Her Spot Within TV's Elite Community of Funny People
Alison Brie was once a drama queen. Though today she is best known for playing both sweet and saucy Annie on NBC’s quirky comedy Community and Mad Men‘s over-the-top scene stealer Trudy, Brie was once a theater student studying the works of Shakespeare on the road to achieving her “naïve” goal of becoming an actress who does only serious stage and film work. Five years later, she’s enlisting her inner funnygirl (and eliciting Emmy buzz) for not one but two acclaimed TV gigs, plus a supporting role in Judd Apatow’s latest film comedy, The Five-Year Engagement.

Exclusive Video Preview: Community's Paintball War, With 'Sawyer' and Annie's (Actual) Boobs
“Raised stakes.” “Explosive.” “Colorful.” “Graphic.” “Sawyer.”
Those are just a few of the words the cast of Community use to describe the NBC comedy’s “epic” two-part finale (kicking off this Thursday at 8/7c), which is filled with Western regalia and another brutal paintball battle. I was on set for Night 1 of the season-ending shoot — with Lost‘s Josh Holloway in my direct eyeline — to chat with the Greendale gang about what to expect from the “Modern Warfare” follow-up, and guess what? It’s everything they teased above, and more. WATCH VIDEO & READ MORE
Community's Brand-New 'Clip Show': We Preview 12 of the 78 (!) Can't-Miss Moments
The Community crew has really been holding out on us! Sure, we’ve seen an adventure or two (zombiepocalypses, paintball wars) over the years, but this Thursday’s installment (NBC, 8/7c) presents Greendale in a whole new light — one alternately featuring ghosts, glee clubs, and a great love (or loathing) of something called The Cape. As “clip” shows go, this episode is rather epic, boasting some 78 separate (and brand-new) scenes. I’m here to dish on 12 of the standouts. Plus, find out what the cast and creators have to say about the laborious undertaking. READ MORE
Community Plays Politics: Jeff and Annie (and Star-Burns!) Run for President
Why, yes, that is Dean Pelton (played by the incomparable Jim Rash) rocking his finest Uncle Sam duds — but what’s the occasion? This Thursday’s Community (NBC, 8/7c) of course, which brings political satire — and a faux Joe Biden — straight to Greendale. READ MORE
New Players Complicate Community Triangle!
This much we know about the romantic messiness on NBC’s Community (Thursdays at 8/7c): Joel McHale‘s Jeff famously slept with Britta (during last season’s spectacular bit of paintball warfare), but also made out with Annie.
The latter incident, we realized before the comedy’s holiday break, had quite the impact on Ms. Edison, who during the “Conspiracy Theory” “shoot-out” professed her love for her study group leader. And despite her protestations otherwise, that was not necessarily a heat-of-the-moment piece of acting. READ MORE
