What to Look/Listen for in 2012: Television

The best television programming of 2012 will no doubt be March Madness, perhaps only to be outdone by the MLB season.  I’ll save commentary on either for a more appropriate time, should the gracious editor-in-chief of this esteemed website allow for it.  For now I’ll address what I believe to be the only non-sports programming and TV art form worth my regular viewership.  I talk, of course, of the sitcom.

Workaholics– Season 3

For those of you unaware of this supremely funny show, Comedy Central’s Workaholics follows the domestic and occupational lives of three men who not only share a home, but also a cubicle.  The show has been renewed for a third season which I hope will begin this spring (Season 1: 10 episodes in spring 2011, Season 2: 10 episodes in fall 2011) and shows no signs of slowing.  The main characters, much like those of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, are far too self-involved and disillusioned to leave room for the sappiness, romance and sentimentality that has plagued The Office and will too soon kill (dare I say it?) Parks and Recreation.  I’ll borrow a phrase from the show’s character Adam to simply describe the essence of the show as, “tight butt-hole.”

30 Rock– Season 6

30 Rock has returned after a brief hiatus.  Huzah!  The show is hilarious and its return to NBC’s Thursday night lineup is definitely welcome.  Need I say more?  But don’t take it from me, check out this ultra enticing promo for season 6!

  1. I haven’t liked the new season of 30 Rock that much, and I wouldn’t miss it if it went on a long hiatus. I just want to see the rest of Community’s third season, and hopefully they’ll get to a fourth.

    I couldn’t agree more. Community has become one of my favorite shows. Hopefully the ratings get better once it comes back and NBC will agree to season four. #sixseasonsandamovie
