Merry Happy End 2010, everyone. There's something about the end of the year, probably having much to do with the annual trek back to the suburb where I grew up, that brings everything into a sharp, marzipan-tinged relief. Choices I made throughout the year were good or bad, people I love and people I'm thankful for are the most important, and my year in media condenses drastically as I have free time to take in the many end-of-the-year lists. I'm not one for end-of-the-year lists. I like lists, and as someone who has worked on the internet for almost a full decade, I know the value of content that can be skimmed first and read second. However, the end of the year is such an arbitrary time to make these lists. It's commercialism that's the motivator, like it always is. Everyone gets time off at the end of the year, time »
As we inch ever closer to the year's end, we've ranked our favorite comics of the year, our favorite movies and television series, and even our favorite news stories of 2010. And while that's all well and good, it's worth noting that the projects we included on those lists weren't always our readers' favorite subjects this year.
That's why we put together a list each year that ranks the most popular stories published on the site over the last 12 months. After all, these were the stories that you were most interested in this year, and the subjects that brought readers to the site most often — according to our traffic data, at least.
In years past, we simply offered a list of the Top 10 Stories Of The Year, but this time around we decided to be a bit more comprehensive and post three Top 10 lists, beginning with the year's most popular interviews, »

Although it is Thursday, there will be no new episode of Community on tonight. If you missed last week’s Christmas special, which featured America’s favorite student slackers in claymation, check out our review here. And now, thanks to cartoonist Chris Schweizer, you can also see them as the Avengers. What?! Donald Glover isn’t Spider-Man? Don’t get your Spidey-tights in a bunch. The artist chose not to draw him as your favorite web crawler because he already did that once, so save your “Spider-Man is/isn’t an Avenger” argument. Hit the jump for the artist’s blog and wallpaper-ready images. Here’s the original post [via Vulture] with a set of scaled wallpaper images. For those of you not up on your Community or Avengers lore, let me break it down for you: Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) is Iron Man, Britta (Gillian Jacobs) is Thor, Abed (Danny Pudi) is Vision, »

Community has wasted no time rolling with the momentum it built in Season 1. Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Chevy Chase and Ken Jeong came together last year to form a motley crew that may be the most entertaining on television.
One part well-written Edgar-Wright style comedy, one-part John Hughes heart, brought together by a fantastic ensemble cast, Season 1 of Dan Harmon’s Community may have been the funniest thing on television since Arrested Development, and one of the biggest Emmy snubs in years (really, The Office still gets recognized but not Community?). So how does a show with that kind of momentum start a Season 2? By getting a lot crazier, of course.

As I was watching Community‘s glorious entry into the claymation Christmas canon last night, I couldn’t help from thinking about my essay about the series that discusses Abed’s popular culture-tinted worldview. Last night’s episode is kind of an obvious example for the points I make in that long essay, but I’m not really sure that makes them any less valid. Some weeks, Abed needs to film Jeff and Britta so he can make a movie about the guilt he feels in relation to his parents’ divorce. Other weeks, he needs to dress up as Jesus and make a film about Jesus as a way to understand Christianity a little better. And this week, his whole world crumbles so much when he finds out that his mother won’t be continuing their annual trend of watching claymation Christmas specials, everything actually turns into a claymation Christmas special. »

We've got 8 stills from the upcoming Adult Swim special hour-long event: Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III. The episode will debut on Sunday, December 19, 2010, on Cartoon Network. The hour-long special features the vocal talents of Zac Efron (Anakin Skywalker), Rachael Leigh Cook (Padmé), Donald Glover (Mace Windu) and Mike Henry (Wedge Antilles), with Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams and Ahmed Best reprising their famous roles as C-3Po, Lando Calrissian and the infamous Jar Jar Binks. Yes, Jar Jar Binks is back. Let's hope he gets killed once and for all. Or, even better, kill Jar Jar Binks about twenty times and bring him back each time for another unmerciful death as if it were a Wu Tang Clan torture intermission (check out the "Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers" and you'll know what I'm taking about). Anything less and the viewers will have to incite a whole new separatist rebellion. About »

Chicago – NBC’s “Community” continues to climb the charts of what must be considered the most creative programs on television with a brilliant Christmas episode tonight inspired by the Rankin-Bass stop-motion animated classics like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman.” The incredible comedy has been more and more uniquely-inspired as its amazing second season has progressed and you don’t want to miss “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas.”
Television Rating: 5.0/5.0
The comedic conceit of tonight’s episode is that Abed (Danny Pudi) is the only one who sees his friends and classmates in stop-motion style. The young man who sees the world almost entirely in pop culture references may have finally snapped. Of course, we, the audience, also see Abed and the crew in stop-motion animation, allowing for some fantastic visual flourishes and incredible sight gags. Most remarkably, “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas” actually becomes somewhat touching with a moral »

With the increasing number of casting reports for Disney’s new Muppets movie, it’s been hard to keep track of what is true and what is simply a rumour. A few weeks ago we published a bit of news stating that Jane Lynch and Paul Rudd were set to star in the upcoming film along side an allstar line up. Just two days later it was announced that Jane Lynch was actually not set to appear in the film and now after a few weeks have gone by, we have also learned that neither will Paul Rudd.
Speaking with MTV News, Rudd said, “I wish that I was [in it]. It’s all rumor… I wanted to be in it, and I talked to Jason, but I think there was some things that happened and I don’t know if I’m gonna get to do it.”
With the litany of casting reports for Disney’s new Muppets movie that have been published, it’s been hard to keep track of who is officially in the movie. Well, apparently a few of them had jumped the gun. A few weeks ago we told you that the previously reported Jane Lynch was not attached to the movie, and now word comes that Paul Rudd will not be in it either. Speaking with MTV News, Rudd said,
“I wish that I was [in it]. It’s all rumor… I wanted to be in it, and I talked to Jason, but I think there was some things that happened and I don’t know if I’m gonna get to do it.”

The list of "The Muppets" movie's cameo appearances might soon outnumber the list of actual Muppets in the film. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Emily Blunt and Ricky Gervais are the latest celebrities to sign on to the film, though their roles are being kept under wraps. Sounds like the Muppets might be going on a trip across the pond.
Gervais and Blunt join the already extensive list of confirmed cameos including Zach Galifianakis, Jack Black, Alan Arkin, Billy Crystal and Jean-Claude Van Damme, as well the rumored Lady Gaga, Danny Trejo, John Krasinski, Ed Helms and Sean Penn.
The film stars Jason Segel as a human named Gary who is best friends with an iPhone-loving Muppet who might be voiced by Paul Rudd. Gary must rally the Muppets and their friends to put on a benefit show to save their movie studio from the evil Tex Richman »

Looks like the new Muppet movie is becoming something of an “Office” reunion party, with past and present cast members including Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, Ed Helms, and John Krasinski coming in for starring/cameo roles.
Now we can add Krasinski’s wife, actress Emily Blunt, and the creator of the original British “Office” Ricky Gervais to the ever-expanding bonanza of cameos lining up to be part of Disney’s “The Muppets.”
Heat Vision has scored the news that the two Brits will join previously announced Jack Black, Zach Galifiniakis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Billy Crystal and Alan Arkin, as well as rumored Danny Trejo, Donald Glover, Mickey Rooney, and Lady Gaga. It was even suggested last week that George Clooney (!) is trying to carve out time in his schedule for a splashy drop-in appearance.
Blunt is no stranger to acting opposite funny looking furry characters, as she co-starred in “The Wolfman” earlier this year, »

By now the new Muppets movie has added so many celebrity cameos, that I.ve lost track of who.s confirmed to be in it and who isn.t. So forgive me if we.ve reported this before, but Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt are sneaking onto The Muppets set for a bit parts, according to THR. Also rumored to be joining the cast (at least according to a post from a relative of his on Facebook is Mickey Rooney. Yeah, that Mickey Rooney. Celebrity cameos have always been a pretty fun part of the Muppet universe, but Jason Segel.s new take on Jim Henson.s classic characters has kind of gone overboard with them. I.m starting to get a little worried. Right now the movie has Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Zach Galifianakis, Rashida Jones, Chris Cooper, Charles Grodin, Alan Arkin, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Donald Glover, Danny »
Previously we told you of a long-list of rumored cameos and according to /Film, the current line-up guarantees appearances by Jack Black, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Crystal, Alan Arkin, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Kristen Schaal. Other actors/performers currently rumored to appear include: Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski, Ed Helms, Lady Gaga, Babara Eden, Donald Glover, Danny Trejo, and Sean Penn.
And just when I thought this lineup couldn’t get any better, THR reveals the beautiful and wickedly funny Emily Blunt and my all-time favorite “chubby funster” Ricky Gervais have joined the cast! No details on the It Brits’ roles in the film, as they are being carefully kept under wraps … possibly like an appearance by Jane Lynch?
