"Community" on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

"Parks and Recreation" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Special double episode tonight! So exciting!

"Archer" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"Suits" on USA at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.

"Scandal" on ABC at 10:02 pm ET. So I've been catching up on this, and there's definitely some things I like about it and some that I'm less enthusiastic about. Like the same kind of magical Republicans who happens to hold exclusively liberal values that also afflicted "The Newsroom". The thing I really HATE though, is the constant shots through beveled glass even in places where there are no beveled glass doors to look through. I guess it looks all arty, with the doubling and whatnot, but they do it about ten times an episode, particularly when they're in the conference room, so it's just silly. But one time they did one of those shots when the characters were sitting at a diner and I was like "THERE ARE NO GLASS DOORS THERE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?" So, I guess the moral of the story is not to shotgun series that have a tendency towards showy shots because you develop an irrational hatred for it.

Genevieve Burgess would very much like it if you bought her book. Please?

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
