What to Watch/DVR This Week

This week is insanely full of things for you to watch on TV. Most notably, the premiere of NBC’s extra-long Thursday night comedy rock block, including the premiere of Perfect Couples and, finally, the return of Parks and Recreation. We’re also looking forward to the Friday premieres of IFC’s Onion News Network and Portlandia, if you haven’t caught that one on Hulu already. And actors from a few of these shows will be promoting them on Late Night TV all throughout the week. With all of this new stuff combined with reruns of Freaks and Geeks and Arrested Development airing frequently on IFC, you’ll be so busy with TV that you’ll forget the very cold outside even exists.
