Tonight, on the second half of Community‘s season finale (we won’t even refer to it as “and possible series finale”), the hunt for buried treasure continues in hopes that Greendale Community College doesn’t get schooled by Subway. Will the Study Group figure out a way to save their slightly profitable institution? Will Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) — those crazy six-inch souls — go through with their plan to create a foot-long union of love? Did someone from Subway just hack our site and insert some ill-conceived product placement into that last sentence? We’ll run a security check and get back to you in no time Flatizza. (Hey! Stop it!) In the meantime, check out this clip from the episode, in which XX might mark the spot. READ FULL STORY

Alison Brie may be taking the whole “stay in school” thing a little too seriously.
The Community star is attached to executive produce Teachers, a comedy pilot based on the popular Web series of the same name, for TV Land, EW has confirmed.
“From the second this project came across my desk, I’ve been in love with it,” said TV Land president Larry W. Jones. “The tone of the show is unlike anything we’ve had on TV Land. I’m really excited about the idea of building this unexplored world, where teachers are the eccentric characters you always hoped they weren’t.”
According to the network, Teachers follows six elementary school teachers who try to get their own lives in order while shaping (or destroying) the minds of the American youth. Stalking your ex online is bad enough — don’t get the children involved! Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien, and Katie Thomas (a.k.a the Katydids — yes all of their names are some form of Kate) will reprise their roles from the Web series for TV. Brie will executive produce alongside Matt Miller (Chuck) and the producers of the Web series Cap Gun TV.
'American Dad': Olivia Wilde and Gillian Jacobs will be your sexy flight attendants on Sunday -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
American Dad takes to the sky this week in hopes of turning you into a frequent crier. (You know, from laughing really hard.) In the episode, which airs Sunday at 9:30 p.m. on Fox, Stan and Francine learn all about the world of aviation, while trying to prevent Mark Cuban (played by Mark Cuban) from blowing the sun to smithereens.
They are recruited by a Charlie’s Angels-esque quartet of sexy flight attendants, who are voiced by some recognizable names: Olivia Wilde as Denise (the brunette!); Becki Newton as Margie (the blonde!), Gillian Jacobs as Christy (the dirty blonde!), and Megalyn Echikunwoke as Angie (the redhead!). This alluring cabin crew calls themselves “four high-flying gals who like to have fun” — so read into that what you may. And check out some of their dirty talk in the clip below.
The episode also includes vocal contributions from Kyle Chandler and returning guest Ellie Kemper. READ FULL STORY

Winter Break is over, and it’s time to file back into the halls of Greendale for a new episode of Community. What will you find in there? A ghostly and ghastly one-man show by Chang (Ken Jeong). A harsh punishment for Abed (Danny Pudi) at the hands of Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks). And a big battle over Britta. Yes, Professor Duncan (John Oliver) makes his play for the former foot model (Gillian Jacobs) with the help of his buddy Jeff (Joel McHale). But maybe Jeff’s heart isn’t into it. Because maybe it wants Britta for itself. Press pause on Good Luck Chuck, pop a few Reese’s Pieces, and check out this clip from “Introduction to Bondage and Beta Male Sexuality,” which airs Thursday at 8 p.m. on NBC. READ FULL STORY
Little is known about Community‘s season finale, but here’s some intel to chew on: One, it’s in two parts. Two, here’s one celebrity guest you can expect to see: B.J. Novak.
EW has learned that the Office alum — whose first book was released this week and who will hit the big screen this spring in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — will make a cameo appearance in the first half of the finale. How exactly Novak factors into the story is being kept under wraps, but he plays what’s being described as “a TV star in a sexy new series. READ FULL STORY
Your cult TV-loving brain is about to explode with joy — as Nathan Fillion guests on Community tonight — and there’s only one man who can clean it up: Greendale head custodian Bob Waite, played by… yes, Nathan Fillion.
The Firefly alum-turned-Castle star assumes the role of the politically savvy janitor-in-chief who clashes with Annie (Alison Brie) and Prof. Hickey (Jonathan Banks) over a simple bulletin board, while the rest of the study group is trying to get the Greendale cafeteria good and ready for the midterm dance. Click on the video to preview a scene from “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking” (8 p.m., NBC), in which Waite’s deputy, Lapari (Kumail Nanjiani), introduces Annie and Hickey to the top of the mop. The episode also includes appearances by Paget Brewster as Greendale’s I.T. boss and Robert Patrick as the head of parking. It’s 30 minutes of staffs and laughs!

Rejoice, human beings! Community is back, inching ever closer to actually fulfilling its “six seasons and a movie” destiny. Yet even as rabid as some fans may be, and even as exciting as the news is that show creator Dan Harmon has returned, there are still many who have yet to give the off-the-wall NBC comedy a chance. Rather than conduct an Inspector Spacetime investigation into this ongoing mystery, we enlisted Community cast member Gillian Jacobs to explain exactly why people should be tuning into season 5. And she did just that when she stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studios.
Now you can hear the entire conversation right here on the InsideTV Podcast. Jacobs talks all about the return of fired showrunner Harmon, discusses how her character of Britta has evolved (devolved?) since the show began, and reveals how much she actually understands when she first picks up a Community script. There is also a tangent about “stolen touchdowns” that is most certainly worth your time. It’s a must-listen for any fan of either Community or Torg the troll.
But that’s not all, because we then step into whooooooooose house? Run’s house!!!! (Sorry, 1980s rap reference there.) Rev Run himself stopped by the EW Radio studios with his lovely wife Justine to talk all about their new DIY show, Rev Run’s Renovation. Does the master M.C. know anything about home renovation? And can his marriage survive a house being turned upside down in order to install such things as a princess bed with a slide in his daughter’s room? I chat with hip-hop royalty about all that and more. READ FULL STORY
Community is back tonight with back-to-back episodes starting at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Below, Jim Rash (aka Dean Pelton) gives a tour of the teacher’s lounge, which features prominently in the second half-hour when Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) becomes — gulp! — a member of the Greendale faculty. There’s a history lesson involved as well. Enjoy. READ FULL STORY
