The 5 People (and Things) on Network TV I Miss the Most Right Now

It’s the end of August, and to be honest, filling a website in late August is like stretching an “SNL” skit into a full-length movie. The television offerings are meager; the films aren’t compelling, and the industry itself has taken the month off. We’ve got little material to work with, folks. Desperate times. I don’t know how many times I can reach in to the site of last resort: Tumblr.

How bad is it? I miss network television. It’s that bad. I even miss bitching about “Fringe” and “Chuck” week after week. I even miss the idea of Olivia Munn as someone I can blame the world’s problems on.

But most of all, I miss:

Penny Caaaaan

Jack Donaghey

Adam Pally

Abed and Troy

Ron Swanson

What about you folks? Any characters or storylines you’re excited to get back to this fall, or are you content with your Instant Netflix and 12 hours of daylight?
