InsideTV Podcast: Who's the funniest character on 'Community'? Plus: Casey blows it on 'American Idol' and Kristina from 'Survivor' blasts Phillip

Posted on


NBC’s underappreciated comedic gem Community was just renewed for a third season — “Pop! Pop!” To help celebrate, Dan Snierson joins Annie Barrett and yours truly on the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast as we discuss and debate the five funniest characters on the show. You’ll notice that Annie’s list is a lot different from the others. I wonder why? Also on tap: Kristen Baldwin enters the podcast thunderdome to break down the latest week of American Idol. Why was J. Lo so intent on keeping Karen with the save? What was Casey thinking on that horrifically butchered Nirvana number? And why has Kristen changed her tune a bit on James “The Durbs” Durbin? Listen in and find out. Finally, the recently ousted Kristina Kell from Survivor: Redemption Island calls in to chat about her good pal Phillip, whom she describes as “insane.” She also discusses her feud with Boston Rob, and what it was like hanging out at Ponderosa with the one and only Russell Hantz.

But first let us know what you think: Who’s your favorite Community character? Now that Casey has stumbled, who is the American Idol contestant to beat? And should Survivor‘s Kristina have been allowed to keep her buff instead of being forced to burn it? Hit the message boards and let us know!
