Take the remote in your hand and let yourself be at peace. Indulge in a lineup that’s guaranteed to let you live the life you’ve dreamed of. [Note from Jenny: Megan wanted to recommend Scandal for tonight, but she’s having problems with her internet & cable, so…]

Last week on Community, the pillow and blanket war continued to wage with Abed and his followers versus Troy and his followers. The campus was consumed by the battle, and even Jeff’s attempts at mediation proved to be futile. Annie took care of the injured, while Britta photographed the casualties and the event for posterity. In the end, peace reigned over Greendale, and Troy and Abed were once again friends.

Tonight, on “Origins of Vampire Mythology,” Britta asks her friends for some help in order to keep her away from visiting an ex. Dean Laybourne (guest star John Goodman) enlists Dean Pelton in his quest to have Troy join the Air Conditioning Repair Annex.

Freshman comedy Up All Night has its season finale tonight. The show has been pretty consistently funny since the start. Christina Applegate and Will Arnett are great together, and while I’m still not a fan of Maya Rudolph or her character of Ava, she doesn’t annoy me quite as much as she did at the beginning. lol Michael Ausiello at TV Line has the show marked as a safe bet for renewal, which I’m pleased about. I hope he’s right! I’m thrilled about tonight’s episode, because Kevin (played by the adorable Jason Lee) returns!

On tonight’s episode, “The Proposals,” when Reagan loses her engagement ring, a Brinkley family heirloom, Chris uses the opportunity to give Reagan the proposal he was never able to give. In order to cover up losing the ring, Regan must seek out her worst enemy – Chris’ grandmother (guest star Marion Ross, Happy Days). Meanwhile, Kevin returns and tries to win Ava back with the help of Julian (guest star Chris Diamantopoulos).

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Missing, Rules of Engagement, & Touch.

I really look forward to each new episode of Missing! Last week, Martin told Becca that her husband had been making a delivery for him when he was killed. Becca wouldn’t believe her husband would use Michael as cover like that. However, after a chase through the streets, Becca discovered that Paul (her husband) didn’t die in the explosion after all, so all her beliefs about her husband are in question. Meanwhile, Michael realized that despite the threats, no one would hurt him. So he stole some keys are tried to investigate the castle. But when he returned to his room, he discovered that Roxanna was being punished for his insubordination.

What I love about this show is that Michael isn’t your typical kidnap victim – he’s using his skills to help determine where he is, figure out the truth about his circumstances, and plot an escape. I didn’t find it surprising that Paul is alive… After all, the fact that he sent Michael away from the car to get his ball, just before it exploded, seemed a bit too convenient. It will be interesting to see what Becca does now that she has discovered her husband is still alive and possibly involved in the kidnapping of their son. A side note: I loved how they put a quote by “Richard Castle” on the jacket of Martin Newman’s book!

In tonight’s episode, “The Three Bears,” Becca takes matters into her own hands to uncover clues to where Michael is being kept. Meanwhile, Michael plots to escape from his kidnappers.

Check it out tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Missing @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Community, 30 Rock, The Office, Up All Night, Awake, Touch, and Sweet Genius.
