We love celebrating real holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah, but you know what's even more fun? Making up your own holidays to celebrate! Luckily, a ton of TV shows have already done the legwork by coming up with their own jolly traditions and festivities. And if there's anyone we trust to turn a made-up day into an event, it's sitcom and cartoon writers.
Get that Festivus pole out of the crawl space, deck yourself in blue and yellow and start ringing bells: It’s time to celebrate nine of our favorite TV holidays.
1. Festivus (Seinfeld)
It’s the Festivus for the rest of us! The parody holiday has become so popular that it’s now celebrated off-screen too. The secular celebration was created by George Costanza’s father as an alternative to the commercialization of Christmas, because that is 100 percent something Frank Costanza would do. It’s celebrated on Dec. 23 with an aluminum »
The holidays are here, and while some would argue that this time should be spent with your family and friends, we think you should grab some coco and use this much-needed break to catch up all of the best TV shows that you keep putting off.

We’ve seen a lot of long-running shows come to an end during 2014. Californication, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and Sons of Anarchy all concluded earlier this year, and just this week, we’ve had the series finales of The Newsroom, White Collar, and The Colbert Report. Now, as we head into 2015, many other shows will saying goodbye as well, and the first four will be Justified, Parenthood, Parks and Recreation and Glee, which will all end sometime between January and May. All four of these series will have aired for at least six seasons (Parks and Rec‘s final season will be its seventh) and be leaving behind very passionate fanbases. As someone who has been a dedicated watcher of of three of these four shows (Parenthood is on my Netflix queue—I just need to find the time to watch it), it’s difficult for me to say which »

Happy holidays, everybody! We’re less than a week away from Christmas, and even though most of your favorite shows have headed off for their winter hiatuses, returning sometime in January (or, in the cases of shows like Once Upon a Time and Agents of Shield, more like March), there is still plenty of TV news to talk about. If you were too busy shopping or decorating this week to keep up with everything, don’t worry. Like always, we’ve got a list of the week’s most important headlines gathered for you right there in our feature “The Week in Television.” – The Walking Dead spin-off’s setting has finally been revealed. Unlike the original Walking Dead series, which takes place in and around Atlanta, Georgia, the new show will be set in Los Angeles and center upon a group of survivors led by a teacher, Sean, and a guidance counselor, »

Universal’s Sisters has all the makings of a comic classic and it’s still a year away from release. Directed by Pitch Perfect‘s Jason Moore from a script by SNL scribe Paula Pell, those two factors alone suggest it could be next year’s biggest chucklefest. On top of that winning foundation, throw two small-screen comics who have completely invigorated the TV slate with 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation and you can consider us very, very excited indeed.
Previously titled The Nest, Sisters follows Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s estranged sisters who return to their family abode as their parents announce they’re about to move. Intending to clear out the clutter, the pair rekindle their sibling relationship and decide to throw one final party to say goodbye to their childhood home. As expected, the bash gets out of hand but the duo learn a lot about life, »

Ron Swanson’s swan song came with some tears and other bodily excretions for actor Nick Offerman. On Thursday’s “Tonight Show,” he told Jimmy Fallon about the sad moment shared between the cast of “Parks and Recreation” as their sitcom wrapped.

“Everyone was crying,” Offerman said, “except for I was vomiting and crying and filling my pants with oatmeal, the saddest oatmeal.”
Offerman wasn’t aware he was saying his last line when he delivered it, however, admitting: “You would think I would have noticed, but on the last day, »

To kick off the one-week countdown to Christmas, Nick Offerman stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday to share his own version of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas." As one might expect from Offerman, his take on the classic holiday story is a bit more straightforward. He describes the sleeping children, who were "dreaming of sugarplums and other random sh*t," later mentioning the fat old man who broke into their house. Watch his funny spin on the story above, then check out more must-see viral videos, plus the Parks and Recreation final season trailer! »
There are some shows — Game of Thrones, Mad Men, even Parks and Recreation — that are just better when you watch them on an actual TV. But as the lines continue to blur between what's TV and what's not, there were more and more shows that came out this year that are simply more enjoyable when you watch them on platforms that aren't dictated by weekly schedules and ratings. »

Right around the 33-second mark: Look at his eyes. Woof. We're not sure we're ready for this. We haven't even gotten close to accepting the end of The Colbert Report, and now we have to start coming to terms with the fact Parks and Recreation's days are numbered. It's not fair. Hell, we still haven't totally gotten over 30 Rock ending yet. »

Is there anyone who doesn't wish that Billy Eichner would yell at them on the street? The comedian won the award for Breakout Star of the Year at the People Magazine Awards on Thursday. Eichner is the host of Fuse's Billy On the Street and guest-starred on NBC's Parks and Recreation. "Thank you for this beautiful silver tube," said Eichner in his acceptance speech, prompting laughs from the audience at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. "I feel like just like Chloë Grace Moretz as the luckiest 17-year-old alive, but that is funny because I'm not 17." Given that Eichner »

Three-time Golden Globe Awards hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are finally reuniting once again on the big screen with the upcoming comedy Sisters, with the first two photos debuting through Entertainment Weekly's 2015 preview issue. The actresses are best known for their work on the small screen, with their respective hits 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, which is heading into its final season starting next month. However, they have also paired up on the big screen as well in 2004's Mean Girls and 2008's Baby Mama, and they both had cameos in last year's Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
In Sisters, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler play two siblings who learn that their childhood house is about to be sold. Before the new owners can take over, they throw one last massive party in their old home. The stellar supporting cast is rounded out by James Brolin, Ike Barinholtz, Maya Rudolph, »

In politics, a Presidential endorsement can be the magic touch, imbuing a candidate with exposure and voter confidence. Does the same hold true in the Oscar race? The team behind "Boyhood" hopes so. Speaking to People Magazine (via The Huffington Post), President Obama revealed that he fell hard for the Richard Linklater’s 12-years-in-the-making, coming-of-age film. And he was kind of a quote-whore about it. "'Boyhood was a great movie," Obama told the magazine. “That, I think, was my favorite movie this year.” Is it too late to send out guild screeners emblazoned with that quote? Obama is, traditionally, a softy when it comes to movies and television. When People put him on the spot with the same question in 2012, the President named "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Life of Pi" and "Argo" as his favorites. He has told the press that "Modern Family" and "Parks and Recreation" are family favorites. »

I was a bit young to remember the glory days of Must See Comedy Thursdays on NBC, when Cheers, Seinfeld, Friends, Will and Grace and more ruled the airwaves. But my generation’s most impressive Thursday comedy stretch came with the four-count knockout punch of The Office, 30 Rock, Community and Parks and Recreation. The first three each left the air or were cancelled, and now the last remaining remnant of my college binge watching days is starting its final season.
Parks and Rec’s last season made our list of the Best TV Shows of 2014, so we’re excited for this final season jumping forward two years into the future to 2017. The 7th season of Parks and Rec premieres on January 13 and concludes on February 24 after premiering two new episodes a week. Watch the trailer below:

Yesterday we heard some plot details for Paul Feig’s upcoming all-female Ghostbusters remake, and now the latest round of Sony leaks has given us some insight into Ivan Reitman’s original plans for Ghostbusters III, which stem from an email last year from the director, which was sent to Sony co-chariman Amy Pascal and concerned the second draft of the script.
Titled Ghostbusters: Alive Again, the film would have focussed on Ray (Dan Aykroyd), Egon (Harold Ramis) and Winston (Ernie Hudson) passing the torch to a younger team of Ghostbusters which included ‘Chris’, the son of Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman (who is assumed to be Oscar, Venkman’s son with Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett).
For the role of Chris, Reitman said that he had met with Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) but stated that he was “unsure” about the casting. »

For much of its first 17 seasons (give or take an “Imaginationland” or “Black Friday” trilogy), South Park has been pretty standalone with its episodes. Typically, the boys get into some sort of crazy situation, the most outrageous resolution ever occurs, and Kenny dies; that’s how things happened for a while—rinse, wash, repeat. However, that concept changed in the most recent season of South Park, the show’s eighteenth, as the animated comedy series embraced serialized storytelling and continuity and became a better show because of it, producing one of its best seasons of all-time. It’s not unheard of for comedy series to try out more serialized storytelling, especially in recent years. While most sitcoms of the past have been fine with essentially re-booting every episode, more recent comedies, such as Community and Parks and Recreation, have found themselves telling season-long arcs over multiple episodes, where characters’ actions »

Tastes change. Not just those of the moviegoing public, who’ve gotten so wise to the sales pitches and story formulas that the town has had no choice but to adapt, propelling a self-aware superhero movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” above the likes of Cap and Spidey at the box office, and making sly, meta-minded directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller — responsible for ultra-blockbuster “The Lego Movie” and wink-wink sequel “22 Jump Street” — the hottest helming duo in town. But over time, critics’ tastes change, too.
In February, I relocated from Los Angeles to Paris, to take up my new post as Variety’s chief international film critic. As you can imagine, my diet underwent a radical upheaval — and I’m not talking about crepes and chocolate mousse, either. What I wasn’t prepared for was how swiftly my moviegoing palate might adapt to this new post.
I’d been raised on junk-food American fare, »

Before this year, we couldn't pick most of these stars out of a lineup. Now, they're topping charts, starring in blockbuster films and marrying A-listers.
News: Why Blue Ivy Was the Breakout Star of 2014
1. Meghan Trainor: The 20-year-old singer/songwriter had everyone declaring "no treble" this summer with her catchy hit song "All About That Bass." Not only that, the pop star also landed two Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
2. Ariana Grande: Though she got a little buzz in 2013 thanks to her Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun connection, it wasn't until 2014 that Ariana Grande really blew up the music scene with her song "Problem." Since then, the petite »
Prepare to say goodbye to the unforgettable residents of Pawnee, as the seventh and final season of Parks And Recreation is set to debut in less than a month. Following the risque cliffhanger at the end of last season, NBC (via EW) has now dropped the first teaser to remind us why we’ll be tuning in to say farewell.
The first six seasons followed Amy Poehler as head of Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation department, Leslie Knope. Along with her motley crew of colleagues, the team fought tooth and nail against the hypocrisy and hilarity of small-town life. However, the parting coda of season six catapulted three years forward into 2017 – to a ‘distant future’ – and this is where the teaser picks up.
Running at a brief thirty seconds, it’s the perfect glimpse into a Pawnean future. Leslie and Ben dally with a hovering delivery drone bot on their doorstep, »
