"Parks & Recreation" co-stars Aziz Ansari and Chris Pratt want you to "give a s**t about cancer" by getting your friends to join the national bone marrow registry by swabbing their mouths, and they have the funniest way of communicating it. This is definitely the hardest I've ever laughed at a cancer PSA (the better to get the word out, of course.) Chris Pratt is really the star of this one—Aziz plays the straight man:

"See you at the Emmys!" [CBS]Amy Sedaris was the best thing on TV last night when she went on the "Late Show" (and actually had something actor-y to promote: her guest-starring arc as a lobbyist on "The Good Wife.") As usual, she wore a special dress just for the show (this one has U.S. presidents on it), which she claimed to be "bursting out of," and did her unique, indescribable chatterbox thing for the entire interview, as always. (Note that the band played "Crazy" when she walked out!)
As usual, it's impossible to describe Amy's interview, but it concerns, among many other things, her avoidance of Dave's phone calls ("I don't ever want to talk to Dave without an audience!"), whether or not the laundry product she does commercials for gets rabbit urine out of fabric (she doesn't know, she doesn't use it), and whether or not she's good on "The Good Wife" ("I am fantastic. I'll see ya at the Emmys!") What a nice pre-Thanksgiving present:Read More »from Amy Sedaris was a Wonderful Lunatic on ‘Letterman’ Last Night

The three ages of guesting. (Jeffrey Mayer; Jeffrey Mayer; John Parra/all WireImage.com)Actors have day jobs, but with an eye on a paycheck, a fun day's work, or an Outstanding Guest Actor Emmy, they moonlight in TV guest roles, too. Here are a few performers (and one non-performer) who will soon provide their Guest Services.
Actor: Frances SternhagenRead More »from Frances Sternhagen, Eric Roberts, and Joanna Garcia Are About to Provide Guest Services
Day Job: Playing everyone's mother, from Cliff Clavin ("Cheers") to Trey MacDougal ("Sex & the City")
Guest-Starring On: "Parenthood"
Role: Mother (what else?) to Zeek (Craig T. Nelson)
Pros: She can probably do this role in her sleep.
Cons: By playing yet another stuntcast mom, she risks a beatdown from current record-holder Marion Ross.

You know how in the movie "Beetlejuice," Beetlejuice is conjured by saying "Beetlejuice" three times? Well, a very obsessed fan of "Community" discovered that the word "Beetlejuice" has been uttered on "Community" three times (one time each season.) The third time was a couple of weeks ago during the Halloween episode, and something special happened in the background to commemorate it. This video shows all three instances—be sure to look behind Annie in the last one. The future of TV is this fan-rewarding and interactive, hopefully:

Next week, Maura Tierney will return to TV with a guest role on "The Office": She'll play Susan California, wife to Dunder Mifflin CEO Robert California (James Spader), who's anxious to return to the workforce, not knowing that her husband is sabotaging her efforts at the Scranton office. It's great to see Tierney looking so spectacular (after being treated for breast cancer in 2009), and to hear her mention "NewsRadio," a.k.a. one of the best workplace sitcoms in TV history.
