Before we take a little break for the holidays, we want to thank everyone who came out to our NBC Christmas party on Friday! It was tons of drunk fun and I only cried about sitcoms like, twice (five times). And a general thank you to everyone who inexplicably follows us and reads our silly ramblings. You’re all wonderful and make watching shitty television worth it. 

Above are the drinking game rules that we made up for the party (you can also download a pdf here) although we ended up watching NewsRadio instead of Friends because of a Christmas miracle. If you’re avoiding annoying relatives all week, I highly recommend locking yourself in your childhood bedroom with Netflix, Hulu, and a six pack. 

The rules are for these specific Christmas episodes: “Ludachristmas,” “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas,” “Christmas Party,” “Citizen Knope,” and “The One With The Holiday Armadillo.”

Attention New York: Our NBC themed Christmas party is happening THIS FRIDAY! We’re really stoked about this and treating it as our TV Hangover office holiday party which means dressing up and getting so drunk that we can’t look each other in the eyes the next day. Thanks to everyone who voted (except for those 54 votes that went to Whitney). Our top five, as you probably have guessed, are:

  1. Community - “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas”
  2. 30 Rock - “Ludachristmas”
  3. The Office - “Christmas Party”
  4. Parks and Recreation - “Citizen Knope”
  5. Friends - “The One With The Holiday Armadillo”

We’re going to play those five episodes—each will have their own drinking game, naturally—and do a couple rounds of trivia so you can win drinks and silly prizes. Plus we’ll probably hang out all night and watch some episodes that didn’t get picked because I am not leaving that bar until I watch NewsRadio

There are still some tickets left and it’s only $5 so make sure you get yours today before we sell out.

P.S. Due to popular demand (me), this is now also an ugly Christmas sweater party. Dress accordingly.

Happy December, TV nerds! Just a reminder: On December 20th, we’re throwing an NBC-themed Christmas party at Videology in Brooklyn. Booze, sitcoms, trivia, candy, etc. It’ll be a great time! RSVP on Facebook and we’ll keep you updated. 

It’s only $5 and tickets are currently on sale—I recommend buying one in advance because our events tend to sell out. 

If you haven’t already, be sure to vote in our poll deciding which episodes we’re going to show! It’s been really cool to see what shows you guys are into so vote even if you can’t go and we’ll write about some of our favorites this month. 

Holiday parties can often be a drag so this year we’re trading in stuffy coworkers and fighting relatives for drinking games and great sitcoms. On December 20th, come celebrate the holidays with us as we watch a few episodes of our favorite NBC comedies, play drinking games for each one, and host a few rounds of trivia where you can show off your Must See TV knowledge and win some prizes!

This time we’re doing something a little different. Since there are so many great Christmas episodes and there’s no way we could decide on our own, you get to choose which episodes we watch! You can make us all sob hysterically over “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas” or force me to finally watch an episode of Frasier (please don’t do this). We’ve compiled a handful of the best holiday episodes from the last couple of years and you can vote for them here. You can vote for up to five episodes and write in any that we may have missed. Even if you don’t live in New York City or can’t go, feel free to vote! It’d be awesome to know what your favorites are. 

Tickets are only $5 and are on sale now. Our last few events have sold out so I highly recommend getting a ticket in advance. And don’t forget to vote here!

I know everyone is sad about King of the Hill leaving Netflix, but here are some of October’s new TV arrivals to hold you over.

  • The 7th season of 30 Rock was the final season but it’s practically flawless and will make you miss the show that much more
  • The 9th season of The Office is also its last and can get a little rough but thankfully there are glimmers of the show’s glory days
  • The 8th season of How I Met Your Mother where we finally met the mother! ..And then realized there’s another season left of this crap
  • The 5th season of Parks and Recreation was shaky at times but ultimately it was good, sweet, and extremely laugh-out-loud funny
  • The 4th season of Parenthood, which is very underrated show but oh so perfect to watch on lazy days when you want to cry a lot

How many times did you cry during last night’s episode of 30 Rock? 

And are you emotionally prepared for the series finale next week?

Hey sitcoms, we know that there are limited ideas in the world and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a particularly easy target to hit but you might want to calm down on the references.  Above: 30 Rock, 2 Broke Girls, and Partners — all from this week.

Maybe 30 Rock is sponsored by hot dogs?
