New IDOL, BANG, HALF, CRAZY, ELEMENTARY, BOO BOO, JOKERS, TASTE, VAMPIRE, RAKE, REIGN And SEAGAL!! Herc’s Thursday TV Talkback!!

Did anybody notice that “Community” and “Parks” had almost the same favor-chain plotline last week?

“Analysis of Cork-Based Networking,” with its Fat Dog For Midterms signage, plus fabulous cameos from Nathon Fillion, Paget Brewster and Brie Larson, made me want to marry it. Jonathan Banks is still playing a world-weary ex-cop and somebody ponied up for Roxy Music.

 

An SNL clip show did much better than new episodes of the NBC shows that usually fill the Thursday grid.

Fox’s “Rake,” which started weak, grew weaker still.

“The Millers” drained away half of the viewership for “Big Bang Theory” before it could reach “Crazy Ones,” “Two and a Half Men” and “Elementary.”
