With stars like Tina Fey, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon apologizing and shows like "Community," "The Golden Girls" and "Scrubs" deleting episodes featuring blackface, Hollywood is finally beginning to reckon with one of its most insidious comedic tropes.

The show's creator Greg Daniels issued the following statement regarding the scene from the 2012 episode "Dwight Christmas." "'The Office' is about a group of people trying to work together with mutual respect despite the inappropriate actions of […]
Fans hoping for a "Community" movie announcement are going to have to wait a little longer.

We love a good backstory episode of television. It’s one of the reasons we love Better Call Saul (which is all backstory, of course) … there’s nothing like a deeper dive on a certain character you love, a plot detail you’ve always wondered about, and storyline questions that linger. In honor of Saul’s return — and our hope that by letting the TV powers that be know how much we love a great backstory — here’s a rundown of 20 of our favorite flashback and total recall episodes. Let us know your favorite tube throwbacks in the comments.
“It’s only fitting that my show should be eaten by one of its children,” says Dan Harmon with a wry smile. As the creator of Community, Harmon cast Ken Jeong and gave him the opportunity to grow as an actor — so much so that Jeong was able to create and star in his own show, Dr. Ken. During shooting, we spoke to them about Community‘s influence on Dr. Ken and whether the fictional Dr. Ken will follow in the real Dr. Ken’s footsteps.

Meta much, TV land? No worries, there's absolutely nothing wrong with TV characters paying homage to other TV characters, even if it does still blow our minds a little that mystery novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) dressed up like a "space cowboy" — i.e. Mal Reynolds, a character also played by Fillion, on the beloved cult classic Firefly — on that Season 2 episode of Castle.Related: How TV Is Celebrating Halloween 2016That, in fact, might be among the most meta moments in TV history, but the Firefly/Castle pseudo-crossover is far from the only self-referential TV moment up in here. Click through this slideshow to see a few of our favorite instances of TV characters dressing up like other TV characters to celebrate All Hallow's Eve.
Nash-heads, your prayers have been answered! CMT has officially picked up Season 5 of ABC’s Nashville. What should have been a series finale caused controversy when it left the fate of Juliette, played by Hayden Panettiere, hanging in the balance. In the last moments of the show, her plane went missing 90 miles outside of Nashville.
Community alums Jim Rash and Joel McHale battled it out on Lip Sync Battle, Thursday. The two actors have always claimed to be good friends but judging by the way McHale tormented Rash, one might not quite believe that. Throughout the evening McHale playfully attacked Rash, who repeatedly plead for help from onlookers but to no avail.
Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) are lonely and single in Los Angeles. Co-created by Rust, Judd Apatow, and Lesley Arfin, this new 10-part series premiering on Friday plays it for laughs, and plays for keeps: It wraps some serious and moving moments into half-hour segments. Jacobs gives the show’s most overtly amazing performance—it’s far beyond what she was asked to do on Community, and she’s more than up to the challenge.
If turkey has its own holiday, then pizza definitely deserves one. Round, square, deep-dish, thin crust, plain cheese, the works — however you like it, pizza is a thing of beauty (and deliciousness).Our national obsession with pizza is reflected on television, where characters order in or dine out, flirt with delivery boys (or girls), and even make their own pies (remember Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place?).So, in honor of Pizza Day — which really should be Pizza Decade — here are 10 TV moments when the pie reigned supreme.
Because Teachers has been tucked away at 11 p.m. on TV Land on Wednesday night, I wanted to be sure to call your attention to it. A funny sitcom with the good-posture backbone of truth, Teachers is about an over-worked, under-paid, unappreciated group of young, female educators at Fillmore Elementary School. Miss Snap (Katy Colloton) is so vain, she rejects a little child’s crayoned picture of the teacher as too unflattering, sending the kid away with a dismissive, “Let’s consider this a first draft.” Another teacher (Kate Lambert) is asked by a student what a mimosa is.
Listen up, everyone! We’ve got an incoming transmission from the Satellite of Love. The wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to bring Mystery Science Theater 3000 back to the airwaves is entering its final hours, with nearly $4.3 million (and climbing) already in the bank.

Every week, Community creator Dan Harmon will sit down with Yahoo TV to break down the best inside jokes, Easter eggs, and sight gags. For this week’s installment, “Basic E-mail Security,” listen in on our discussion of why he doesn’t like to do topical humor, the anatomy of a running joke, and the juicy e-mails the North Korean hackers missed.
After Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, perhaps no premiere is more hotly anticipated (among a very specific demographic) than the return of Community. So it should come as no surprise (to that very specific demographic) that the TV show would drop a Community: Age of Yahoo trailer two weeks before the debut.
