30 Rock (NBC, 8:30 p.m.) – “The Queen of Jordan” takes over “TGS” again. More D’Fwan! More Gay Jack! More Angie saying, “Haaaaammmmmmm.”

The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8 p.m.) – Casey Sander, a.k.a. Charlie Weaver from “Justified,” guest stars in tonight’s episode! I’m not saying you should choose “The Big Bang Theory” over “Community,” or ever chose “The Big Bang Theory” over anything actually, but if some intrepid Internet person wants to make a video replacing Jim Parsons with Timothy Olyphant and put it on YouTube, you’d have my click.

Community (NBC, 8 p.m.) – After the news of Starburns’s death is revealed, Britta acts as a grief counselor, “employing what she’s learned in her psychology class,” to the group. Britta has been the MVP of “Community” this season, so this should be another good one. (Brief note: according to Vulture, producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan are leaving “Community” after the season. Their decision to bolt has nothing to do with the long-term future of the show, but it still sucks because they’re two very talented, funny guys.)

The Office (NBC, 9 p.m.) – One of the few bright spots this season has been the bonding moments between Jim and Dwight, like when they watched TV in bed together in Tallahassee. Tonight’s episode has the duo joining forces to outsmart a salesman. In a related note: where the f*ck is Cathy?

Parks and Recreation (NBC, 9:30 p.m.) – “An important person in Pawnee dies”! Oh no! Who could it be? Pistol Pete? Crazy Ira? THE DOUCHE??? At least we can rule out Kyle. He’s not important.

Eagleheart (Adult Swim, 12 a.m.) – Think “Eagleheart” will recreate the tortoise scene from “Breaking Bad” because Dean Norris is on the show? Probably, and then the turtle will explode, killing dozens of children.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Stephen Colbert and Chloe Grace Moretz (uh oh) on Letterman; Robert Downey Jr. and Katharine McPhee on Leno; Scar-Jo and Roger Daltrey on Kimmel; Julie Andrews and Michael Emerson on Ferguson; Martha Stewart and Carson Daly on Fallon; Peter Bergen on Stewart; and Lena Dunham on Colbert.
