I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Thursday TV Tournament: Match-up 14 Results

Today's match-up is between fourteenth seed, 30 Rock Season Five, Episode Three, "Let's Stay Together," which aired October 7, 2010, and nineteenth seed, Community Season Two, Episode One, "Anthropology 101," which aired September 23, 2010. The results are in:

I took a trip to Brooklyn last summer, and every hip kid in town was talking about how the people got together and petitioned to get Betty White on Saturday Night Live. This was the hip, hipster, indie thing to talk about. I wasn't all that excited about Betty White on Saturday Night Live, and I sure didn't care to see her on Community either. (Oh, and by the way, it's no success to get Betty White on Saturday Night Live when you can't even get enough support to get Donald Glover an audition for the Spider-man reboot.) The 30 Rock episode in question was your ordinary, average 30 Rock episode, but that's plenty enough to beat the second season premiere of Community. Don't worry, Community. The show takes up almost the entire left half of the tournament. You'll see Community a bunch in upcoming match-ups.

Tune in next time for eleventh seed, 30 Rock Season Five, Episode Two, "When It Rains, It Pours," which aired September 30, 2010, and twenty-second seed, 30 Rock Season Five, Episode Seventeen, "Queen of Jordan," which aired March 17, 2011. I will see you then.
