This season, it turns out Community will add the disaster movie to its list of homages, according to TVLine.

The promos for Enlisted don’t really have me excited, it’s looking broadly goofy. However in an interview with Hitfix, series co-creator Kevin Biegel says he’s aiming for a variety of moods, “…the show that’s being sold right now, that people have seen, isn’t the show we intend (to make); the pilot isn’t the show we want to do eventually.

How many characters can you recognize in a poster featuring every Futurama character?

This year, the Puppy Bowl will feature an appearance by Keyboard Cat, according to EW — or, at least, a cat who has taken over playing Keyboard Cat since the cat from the original viral video has died. Is that a thing now, do we have animals making appearances as popular viral video characters?

The Atlantic estimates that there are 76,897 of those oddly-specific subgenres on Netflix. (You know, like feel-good biographical movies, German-language dramas from the 1960s or gay & lesbian experimental movies.)

Matt Smith and Jenna Louise Coleman in "Doctor Who" "Time of the Doctor"

Meanwhile, the return of Sherlock hit a new ratings high with 9.2 million British viewers.

Friday’s Listings

The Carrie Diaries (CW) 8:00 PM ET
Can you do a proper teen drama without the story where a teen gets the house to herself, invites a few friends, only to have to deal with an out-of-control party? Since this week’s Carrie Diaries checks off that box (with Dorrit taking the role of the home alone teen) we won’t have test that quite yet.

Oprah: Where Are They Now? (OWN) 9:00 PM ET
It’s a new Friday time slot for Oprah: Where Are They Now?, which is kicking off with a chat with Kristin Chenoweth and a second Queer Eye reunion. That’s a good way to grab our attention.
