New Year’s Eve-Themed Episodes: A Countdown From 10

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…rerun! In anticipation for New Year's Eve festivities you can either watch yet another Ryan Seacrest-hosted event with uncomfortable D-list celebrity banter, freezing strangers wishing a "Happy New Year" to other strangers, and pre-recorded performances from pop stars, or you can watch something good. (That said, if this year the clock strikes midnight and the zombie apocalypse unfolds on live television and you're watching one of these old TV episodes instead, we sincerely apologize for making you miss it.)

Great -- another awards show for Modern Family to undeservedly sweep.

Apparently, audiences don't like watching women crying hysterically behind closed bathroom doors -- but they love Ryan Seacrest. Who knew?

11 Things to Do Tonight Instead of Going to a Party

Sure, it's great to go out and be festive or whatnot, but how nice would it be to snuggle up in front of the boob tube and just hang out in PJs? It's not a bad way to ring in the New Year. You don't have to worry about catching a cold from kissing a stranger. If you get really drunk, you don't have to find a taxi or a driver. And there's the extra bonus of not getting gussied up.

Modern Family: The Best Lines of the Week

<i>Modern Family</i>: The Best Lines of the Week

Ah yes, the holiday episode that airs over a week after the holiday itself -- one of the reasons why "New Year's Eve" fell flat for me (and why we're kind of dreading Community this season). Much as I liked the pairings and some of the dialogue, this is just another contrived episode of Modern Family we can cite when we talk later about how a different show should have won the 2013 Emmy for Best Comedy.

<I>Louie</i>: Five Best Moments from the Season 3 Finale

Much as I really like this show and was happy to see Louis CK take home two Emmys this past week, Louie kind of lost me for a few episodes this season. I mentioned this a couple of months ago, but sometimes the episodes got weird past the point of being actually enjoyable -- not always in a bad way per se, but I need to wait to watch Louie for when my head is clear and I don't have to immediately tune in to something else afterward. I also have mixed feelings about the Late Show arc, but in the interest of time, let's get to "New Year's Eve," an episode that was equal parts great and strange.
