Last night on Mom Season 2 Episode 4, Christy took a long, hard look Violet's erratic behavior and heavily critiqued it. But what was the end result?

As always, Mom is one of the more unpredictable comedies, even shows, on network TV these days, and Allison Janney's Emmy win is well earned.

Sometimes it doesn't even choose to be comedic. Other times it feels as though French Stewart and Nate Corddry see their talents wasted completely.

Yet with Janney and Anna Faris, you have a couple of comic actresses capable of bringing so much more to the table than your generic CBS program.

This is a complicated, occasionally uncomfortable comedy the likes of which are rarely seen on any network, more dramedy than laugh track sitcom.

Wednesday's Top Chef Season 12 Episode 6 saw a Thanksgiving Challenge that took on special meaning because of the host city. Or in this case, region.

On Top Chef Season 12 Episode 6, former contestant Tiffani Faison surprised the aspiring culinary stars with a trip to the country and a test of endurance.

In Massachusetts, the cast had to make their way through a cranberry bog to gather the vintage New England ingredient for use in the Quickfire Challenge.

The standouts were tasked with working together to cook a traditional family-style Thanksgiving meal, which would be tough enough for most people now.

On The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8, viewers were invited to Friendsgiving. But Caroline's perfectly-organized dinner was quickly hijacked by a tale about Liv and Luke's family... which also includes Jo and Kai.

Get comfortable, THGers. This episode spewed forth a great deal of mythology and exposition...

Jo vaguely recognized Liv as soon as she arrived for Friendsgiving and we later learned why via a series of flashbacks. Let's hammer them out bullet-point style, shall we?

Modern Family Season 6 Episode 8 certainly succeeded at bringing the whole family together - quite literally - unlike some other installments this fall.

Alex caught her and agreed to keep her secret, but while Claire was playing with one of Phil's contraptions in the garage, she blew a ruse inside.

Last night on Survivor Season 29 Episode 9, two reward winners decided to trade what they had won in return for loyalty. Who are we talking about?

More importantly, did that gambit pay off for the players involved?

Outwitting, outplaying and outlasting are the name of the game, and all were paramount on Survivor Season 29 Episode 9 as the home stretch awaits.

Fortunately for Jeremy Collins, he failed to outwit or outlast.

After which he was voted out of the game. It's been real!

Yes, South Park Season 18 Episode 8 was titled "Cock Magic." But let's get this out of the way because we're a family site and all:

The cock in question referred to chickens, not... you know.

Then again, there was plenty of talk about penises as well on the Comedy Central smash, so read on at your own risk basically.

This South Park episode was less a commentary on some pressing social issue and more an example of creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone pretty much just going crazy. In the most amazing of ways.

The three main topics covered were cockfighting, Magic: The Gathering, and, well, penis magic shows.

The Robertsons are back and better than ever on A&E, and Wednesday's Duck Dynasty Season 7 Episode 1 saw them embark on a truly epic journey.

To Scotland! Duck Commander CEO, Duck Dynasty Executive Producer, Father of Five and Certified Boss Hog Willie Robertson had to go there on business.

What's the point of having a TV show if you can't bring the family along, as they've shown fans before and you know if you watch Duck Dynasty online?

Exactly. And Scotland offered the added intrigue of helping the Louisiana family reconnect with its ancestral roots in Duck Dynasty Season 7 Episode 1.

The one-hour installment was titled “Glory Is the Reward of Mallard," an ode to the both the clan's Scottish lineage and its current Louisiana lifestyle.

There is some culture shock, predictably. Scotland features much colder weather than the Duck Commander crew is used to back in West Monroe.

As expected, the family dons kilts, which leads to some memorable exchanges, and partakes in fishing and golfing as well as their area of expertise.
