Community (NBC, 8 p.m.) – If you recall, last month we interviewed “Community” writer Megan Ganz, who based tonight’s “Law & Order” parody episode on “the Jack McCoy years, seasons four through eight.” So those hoping for an Anthony Anderson reference will be disappointed. Everyone else will love it.

NFL Draft (ESPN, 8 p.m.) – If the Carolina Panthers don’t draft Justin Blackmon (assuming he drops to #9, which he won’t) or Fletcher Cox, expect tomorrow’s GIF slideshow to feature nothing but people screaming/killing everyone. Until then, check out KSK’s NFL Draft live blog.

30 Rock (NBC, 8:30 p.m.) – Live from New York, it’s “30 Rock.” Doctors Baird and Spaceman will likely show up (OHPLEASEOHPLEASEOHPLEASE), and Donald Glover definitely will, but if you could choose one other recurring character to appear, who would it be? I really miss Cooter Burger.

Parks and Recreation (NBC, 9 p.m.) – Paul Rudd returns as Leslie’s opponent, Bobby Newport, in an episode written and directed by Amy Poehler. I want to be friends with both of them.

The Office (NBC, 9:30 p.m.) – “Nellie learns how to eat a taco.” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is the greatest C-plot in the history of TV. Expect a shot-by-shot analysis tomorrow. I bet she likes hard-shell tacos. Because she’s terrible.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Robin Williams and Andrew Luck on Letterman; Diane Keaton on Leno; Emily Blunt on Kimmel; Toni Collette on Ferguson; Jason Segel and Leelee Sobieski on Fallon; Jack Black on Conan; Robert Draper on Stewart; and Jack White on Colbert.
