Season 8 has begun, and despite the departure of a favorite boss, the first episode was impressive. It’s true; Michael Scott’s awkward moments will be missed. However, it’s great to see Andy get a win considering his troubles with Erin last year.
Pam’s pregnancy leads to some great character opportunities for her. Her emotional reactions throughout the episode were hilarious.

In case you couldn’t make it to the “Glee” viewing party in the Fern lounge or missed watching it with other “Glee” fanatics, here’s a quick rundown.
The music, the drama, as well as the humor was still there, although many fans missed their favorite characters from previous seasons. Despite a season premiere that didn’t live up to many fans’ expectations, you can be sure “Gleeks” will continue to tune in to see what’s happening at McKinley High. —By Amber McNeill
In “New Girl,” FOX’s latest comedy, Zooey Deschanel plays yet another quirky and confident girl, this time named Jess Day. Jess finds herself rooming with three guys after a horrible breakup.
After exchanging some superficial dating advice and the guys spend some time checking out Jess’s best friend, the model, their relationships mature, and they end up becoming a central part of one another’s lives, as with any sitcom’s characters. —By Brittany Leikvoll
UP ALL NIGHT
“Up All Night” has some good things going—it stars Christina Applegate (“Anchorman”) as Reagan, a new mother returning to work, Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”) as Chris, her stay-at-home husband and Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live”) as Ava, her boss.
The problem is, although fans have grown to love these stars in other shows, they’re not likeable in their roles on this sitcom. Reagan and Chris regret having to make sacrifices to things they used to love, such as drinking and swearing, and Ava acts like a cheap and sleazy Oprah wanna-be. —By Kati Heng
2 BROKE GIRLS
While hard-hearted Brooklyn waitress, Max, trains new co-worker, a former millionaire’s daughter, Caroline, the two form an unlikely friendship in CBS’s “2 Broke Girls.”
While the sitcom sets itself up as a shallow, light hearted and, at times, crude piece of entertainment, the dynamic relationship between an inner-city skeptic and a mansion dwelling elite may have the potential to keep audiences coming back for another order. —By Kameron Toews
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER
The upcoming season of “How I Met Your Mother” is going to be a Legend, and like the show’s star, Barney Stinson, might say, with a side of dary.
The seventh season of “How I Met Your Mother” kicked off Monday, Sept. 19. The premiere followed suit with the past six hilarious and brilliantly written seasons as a great source for laughs and puns like the one above.
