<i>South Park</i> Already Making Fun Of The New President Oh South Park! You and your searing political insights! As I've been informed they do every election year, those jokers Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be airing a brand new episode of their raunchy toon tomorrow featuring whoever ends up being the winner of this here election. Guess that means the animators have been busy drawing up two possible scenarios for two different President Elects. Or they're just relying on the popularity polls, which've been telling us for a while now that Obama's a shoo-in. What? Don't shoot the messenger, dudes! I'm just reporting what the news reporters are saying.

Go vote (please?) and then tune in to Comedy Central tomorrow night at 10 PM EST to watch South Park's super dooper presidential episode, "About Last Night ..." featuring Obama somebody and gloat or cry, whichevs.

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.)

Smash: Other Shows It Resembles More Than Glee

<i>Smash</i>: Other Shows It Resembles More Than <i>Glee</i>

We're sick of everyone saying that Smash reminds them of Glee. The shows have very little in common, so it's just a lazy comparison that's made because both programs happen to feature musical elements. Smash is a layered show about adults in realistic situations, not adults playing teenagers in the most ridiculous high school ever. NBC's series also has serious actors (like Anjelica Huston) and (judging by the upcoming episodes we've been privy to) actually remembers its storylines from week to week and doesn't wildly change itself in order to fit the music of the week. Oh, and its original songs are truly catchy, and the less said about that time Glee went for originality, the better. Here are the other shows Smash actually resembles:

High School Musical Hating, Everyone’s Doing It

<I>High School Musical</I> Hating, Everyone’s Doing It

Now that the elections are over, everyone's desperate to find something else to make fun of. It only makes sense that the juggernaut franchise High School Musical is the target that's currently the top pick. There's just so much to parody: the cheesy songs, the earnest performances, Corbin Bleu's odd hair, why there's a character named Sharpay, etc. Not to mention that every teen in the country is gaga for it.

Spaced: The Complete Series

Spaced: The Complete Series

Finally! Unless you're one of the initiated, you don't know how long we've been waiting for this. Available on DVD in its native U.K. for years, this 14-episode TV series was directed by Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz helmer Edgar Wright, starred both films' comedy team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and was co-penned by Pegg as well. Also, it makes a lot of references to Star Wars, hence the Drew Struzan-esque painting of the cast on the cover of the box. Is it any wonder that American fans have been dying to get their hands on it? I mean, literally, through the black market? What a senseless waste of human life. The first Region 1 set ever would be worth it for the show alone, but the set is so packed with extras, you're really getting a bargain.
