A gleeful, musical 'Community' holiday

"Community," we like liking you.

Thursday night's episode was a bittersweet occasion, with the knowledge that we have no idea when the next episode will air. Even so, it was the second best episode of the season, just behind the alternate timelines.

When Cory Radison (who goes by "Rad," of course, described as "equal parts Hanson and Manson"), who heads up the glee club, approached the study group to fill in during the Christmas pageant – what with the glee club having a "collective nervous breakdown" – of course their response was "Pass!"

Kris Humphries: I'm moving on

In an interview with "Good Morning America" Friday, pro basketball player Kris Humphries was adamant about being ready to move on from his two months of marriage to reality star Kim Kardashian.

"Certain things happen in life and you've got to move forward," 26-year-old Humphries said. "Through everything I'm just focused on my family and preparing for basketball."

As he does that, though, the "reality" of his relationship with 31-year-old Kim is being played out for viewers on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" - not that he's tuning in.

'Avatar' subject of lawsuit claiming idea was stolen

James Cameron's blockbuster "Avatar" is involved in a lawsuit in which a man claims that he helped develop the idea for the highest-grossing domestic picture to date, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In a complaint filed Thursday, Eric Ryder alleges that a story he worked on for two years with the production company went on to become "Avatar" and that he's been shut out of the success.

Ryder claims he worked on a treatment called "K.R.Z. 2068," a science fiction story that, after being presented to Lightstorm Entertainment, was to be turned into an "environmentally themed 3-D epic about a corporation's colonization and plundering of a distant moon's lush and wondrous natural setting."

If you thought Drew Ryniewicz's tears during last week's elimination were tough to watch, this week was no easier.

It was a difficult bottom two, with Rachel Crow and Marcus Canty both having to sing "survival" songs. But only one could stay, which meant someone else had to go...
