Tonight’s show truly is an all-star edition. It features Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Chris O’Dowd from HBO’s Family Tree, and singer Josh Groban. Carell, Wiig and O’Dowd, all trading banter with the quick-witted, freewheeling Norton? Should be a riot.

Among the vignettes in tonight’s Wilfred is a sequence in which Wilfred is taken to a dog obedience school – where the lady in charge is played by Gina Gershon. And Wilfred, instead of seeing this as a punishment, sees only opportunity.

This 2004 movie by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone is, without doubt, the best marionette movie musical ever made. It’s truly hilarious, and audacious – and, in both respects, hints at the elements the pair would bring when collaborating with Robert Lopez on Broadway’s brilliant The Book of Mormon.

Why watch Franklin & Bash? Excellent question, usually – but tonight, I have an answer. If you’re big on female TV icons, tonight’s episode presents two from decades ago: Heather Locklear, now a series regular as the boys’ new boss, and Jane Seymour, returning in a recurring role as Peter’s mother. Oh, and Seymour’s character needs legal representation from her son and his partner, because she’s been accused of prostitution. Oh, and double oh: In one

If the contents of tonight’s episode are as funny as its episode title, we’re in for another very entertaining episode. It’s called “T.: The Terrestrial.” Think about it.

Last week, Hot in Cleveland grabbed a lot of well-deserved attention by broadcasting live. This week, it earns more attention with its guest casting. Carol Burnett guest stars, playing the housebound, hoarding mother of Wendie Malick’s Victoria. Tim Conway also guest stars – making this a mini-reunion, along with series star Betty White, of three of the wonderful players from the recurring, riotously raw "The Family" sketches on The Carol Burnett Show. And in what other comedy compan

Here’s a test of the interviewing abilities of Stewart’s summer substitute host, John Oliver. Tonight his guest is Josh Fox, the filmmaker whose documentary, Gasland Part II, provides for a lot of opportunities to make serious as well as comic points. And Fox is just off an appearance on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, where he held his own, and more, against an angry assault from one of the show’s conservative guests.

Tonight’s show is scheduled to combine, on the same program, two of television’s all-time best political commentators: the usually playful Stephen Colbert and his guest, the usually serious Bill Moyers.
