Weekend Champloo, January 12-16

by on January 12th, 2012

30 Rock Returns!
Thursday, January 12th at 7:00 p.m. on NBC
Winter may have officially started on December 22nd, but the snow didn’t arrive until today. School happened regardless of the snow and wind so why not treat yourself tonight; skip the homework and watch some of the best comedy on tv. 30 Rock is back (they promise Community will return later) and Parks and Rec follows. Heck, I’d even say you should stick around for The Office even though that show’s best years are long gone.

City vs. West Varsity Basketball Games

Friday, January 13th at 6:00 (girls) and 7:30 (boys) at West High School
Can the West High varsity teams maintain their perfect record?
