Community (NBC, 8 p.m.) — From the AV Club’s Ryan McGee: “Tonight’s #Community is really, really, really, really, really, really good.” This is the episode all the lucky critics who got screeners blabbed about last month, and now, finally us normal chumps will get in on the fun. Also, Boyd Crowder guest stars as Mr. Stone.

American Idol (Fox, 8 p.m.) — Well, at least last night’s season premiere ratings were at an all-time low.

The 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (The CW, 8 p.m.) — LAAAANNNNNNAAAAAAAAAA hosts.

Parks and Recreation (NBC, 8:30 p.m.) — Leslie and Ben start new jobs, and Twitter ruins a surprise.

Spoils of Babylon (IFC, 10 p.m.) — This show’s good, but let’s go back to talking about Boyd Crowder. Friend-of-the-site Joanna Robinson is throwing a Justified-themed dinner party next week, and she needs help coming up with meals and drinks. I suggested Art Mulled-Wine and EVERYONE recommended Raylan Giblets. What say you?

Eagleheart (Adult Swim, 12 a.m.) — Vulture has a nice summary of this show’s greatness. Read, the watch.
