So this is what the end of Pawnee looks like. Hugs upon hugs, each longer than the last. Announcement after announcement that another actor—Henry Winkler as Dr. Saperstein! Helen Slayton-Hughes as Ethel Beavers! Jon Glaser as Jeremy Jamm!—has just finished his or her last day of shooting, resulting in more hugs. Amy Poehler sweetly coaching her young sons to say into the camera, “That’s a wrap on Parks and Recreation!” Nick Offerman’s parents sitting stoically in director’s chairs. (“One last chance to see our clumsy magic,” explains the good son.) Aubrey Plaza in zombie makeup. Jim O’Heir sobbing through his final lines as the cast reads the finale script aloud. (Dammit, Jerry! We’re trying to hold it together here!) READ FULL STORY

Tuesday night, NBC aired the self-explanatory One Direction: The TV Special. Naturally, it featured the band’s members performing their songs and engaging in some behind the scenes antics. (Niall in tighty whities, anyone?)
Some highlights: Niall playing shirtless ping pong and air guitar at the same time(just go with it). Liam quizzing the other members while riding a roller coaster. Zayn, who doesn’t like roller coasters, opting out. (In this segment, it was revealed that Louis’s favorite movie is Grease.) They all also travel to Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro smuggled in the back of a bread van. READ FULL STORY

What is it with Mark Hamill and daddy issues?
Tonight, NBC airs the new animated holiday special Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas (8 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. CT) which gives the Star Wars actor a turn at playing the surly father redeemed by his kind-hearted son.
But instead of Luke saving Darth Vader from the dark side, this is Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons as an overgrown elf saving his cranky dad (Hamill) from Santa’s naughty list.
“I’m sort of the Scrooge of the story, who has a big change of heart,” Hamill tells EW. “I thought Jim Parsons did such a great job, he’s so lovable in that part. You had to get somebody who could portray that kind of clueless innocence and without the right Buddy the whole thing falls apart. Luckily for us we had a great Buddy.”
The hour-long special is a stop-motion mash-up of the 2003 film Elf, which starred Will Ferrell and James Caan, and the 2010 Broadway musical, which featured songs by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin.
Hamill talked with EW about voicing the cranky dad, his own yuletide TV favorites, and that one Star Wars Holiday Special that everyone involved pretends doesn’t exist. READ FULL STORY
While we all know Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings films are just movies, it seems Martin Freeman has brought a bit of Middle-earth’s magic to Studio 8H.
We were promised hate-watching. We were told that NBC was “counting on” us to tune into Peter Pan Live! just to complain that Allison Williams wasn’t talented enough, or British enough, or Mary Martin enough. We prepped our Twitter jokes about how the dog (a real dog!) was the most natural actor in the whole cast. We waited for the sets to fall apart, for the wires suspending the actors above the stage to break, for Captain Hook’s hook to fly off stage and break some NBC intern’s glasses. We readied our thinkpieces about the uncomfortable implications of Peter flirting with Wendy and also wanting her to be his mother. And then something incredible happened. Peter Pan Live! wasn’t an epic failure. It was something much more shocking to the American public. It was… fine.
