Fall television premieres are HERE!

Rejoice small-screen fans, the fall television schedule is here!  The days of biding your time with reruns of House Hunters International are over and it's time to get back to the real business at hand.  It's been so long since I was able to watch my "stories", I've damn near forgotten where we left off.  Lucky for you, I've taken some time to comb through the various hype articles and recaps from last season in preparation for another round of TV at the Alamo.

First off, TONIGHT is the season premiere of everyone's favorite guilty pleasure, Glee.  When we last saw the Glee gang, they had lost at regionals, Quinn gave birth to her baby, and the club was given another chance to avoid being disbanded.  This season does not look to disappoint, with rumors of a Brittney Spears episode, the gang paying homage to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and best of all, JOHN STAMOS (Staaaamoooos!) coming on to play Will's (Matthew Morrison) nemesis.  So, round up your gleek friends (I kid), and head over to The Village tonight at 9:45pm to get your glee on.

Tickets to these screenings will be free, but you can reserve your seat by purchasing a $5 food and drink voucher redeemable towards your check at the show that night. For premieres and finales especially, we generally recommend reserving your space ahead of time that way.  Click HERE to reserve your seat!

On Thursday night, NBC is rolling out their comedy sitcom lineup.  We will be screening fan favorites Community, 30 Rock, The Office, as well as giving the new show Outsourced a shot (if it sucks, we'll stop showing it).

At the end of last season on The Office, Andy (Ed Helms) was outed as a key whistle-blower on the case of the exploding Sabre printers, which earned him the ire of colleagues but the admiration of girlfriend Erin (Ellie Kemper).  Dwight (Rainn Wilson) opted to use newfound cash to buy the company's business park, while Michael (Steve Carell) may have persuaded boss Jo (Kathy Bates) to bring back old flame Holly (Amy Ryan).  With this being Steve Carell's last season on the show, I'm sure there will be big things in store for Michael and the gang.

On Community (which is the second best show starring Joel McHale), the study group has just gone through a bit of drama when both Britta (Gillian Jacobs) and Professor Slater (Lauren Stamile) are after Jeff but he ends up kissing Annie (Alison Brie) instead.  Yeah, the same Annie who has promised to leave with Vaughn to Delaware Community College.  Why can't they all solve their problems with a giant cookie like Troy, Abed and Pierce?

There's so much happening on 30 Rock, that I almost don't want to get into it.  Liz (Tina Fey) can’t seem to escape uptight Brit Wesley (Michael Sheen), even as she is falling for airline pilot Carol (Matt Damon). Jack (Alec Baldwin)—torn between girlfriends Avery Jessup (Elizabeth Banks) and Nancy Donovan (Julianne Moore)—discovers that Avery is pregnant with his child. Kenneth (Jack McBrayer), faced with a transfer to Los Angeles, tries to get out of the new gig, but is fired after screwing up in front of the Kabletown executives.  Look for Jack to meddle in Liz's budding relationship with Carol, even while struggling with his new found duties as expectant father.  Jenna (Jane Krakowski) becomes a producer on TGS while Tracy (Tracy Morgan) deals with the loss of Kenneth from his entourage.
