10 Things You May Have Missed On TV This Week

Illustration for article titled 10 Things You May Have Missed On TV This Week

In this week's television roundup, Nene makes her first appearance on Glee, 30 Rock references Tracy Morgan's homophobia and Daniel Radcliffe revisits his role as Harry Potter.

1.) Nene Leakes makes her network television debut.
This week's Glee had a special appearance by Real Housewives of Atlanta's very own Nene "Close Your Legs to Married Men" Leakes and she did a great job! Is this the first time a Real Housewife has had a role this high profile outside of the Bravo franchise?


2.) Parks and Recreation gives us a lesson in voice-overs.
Damn it, Jerry.

3.) Art mimics life on 30 Rock.
Remember when Tracy Morgan made all of those hilarious homophobic jokes last summer? Of course you do— you're probably still laughing. Well, last night's 30 Rock got all meta on us, with Tracy Jordan doing something very similar. Trying to clean up his mess, Liz issues a public apology in which she calls Tracy an idiot. It's all downhill from there.

4.) Niecy versus Wild.
This week's Celebrity Wife Swap had Reno 911's Niecy Nash trading places with Family Ties' Tina Yothers. Watch as Niecy, a city girl through and through, is forced into the great outdoors.


5.) We gotta get back to Hogwarts.
With everyone occupied by Lana Del Rey's lackluster SNL performance, we've managed to miss what a lovely and capable host Daniel Radcliffe was. Here's one of the night's finer sketches. Watch what happens when The Boy Who Lived becomes a man.


6.) Joel McHale gives Lucy Lawless a lesson in merkins.
See, in New Zealand they call them fanny cozies or muff-muffs.


7.) Uggie, the dog from The Artist, stops by Ellen.
Give this dog an Oscar already.


8.) Rick Perry has a gimmick.
Play him off, Keyboard Cat.

9.) Lily drops the fuck-bomb on Modern Family
This is what those conservatives worked themselves up over?


10.) Stephen Colbert and James Taylor take a melodic trip to South Carolina.
Vote Herman Cain, y'all.

Was I the only one who just could not get past the inaccuracies in the HP sketch? Daniel was indeed a great host, and funny as hell, but DAMN could they have made any more errors in the sketch as to canon? Harry and Co. left Hogwarts in 1998. Ten years after would have been 2008, NOT 2020.

And you can't apparate inside Hogwarts! Just because you're doing funny doesn't mean you can't do it right-just see Potter Puppet Pals or A Very Potter Musical.
