2014 TV preview: New Year’s resolutions for ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘Parks and Recreation,’ more

Get ready -New Year’s Day is just about here, and that is a time to really reflect on everything that has transpired in the past year, and also move forward into what will hopefully be an awesome 2014. We’re definitely excited with some great things in the works here at CarterMatt, which we are hoping to share with you over the weeks ahead. For now, though, let’s do some of what we do best: Talk TV!

So following our article yesterday detailing what New Year’s Resolutions we have for some of your favorite drama series, we now felt like we would do the same exact thing for comedies.

“The Big Bang Theory” – To actually give Raj a variety of different love interests to choose from over the next few months, mostly because romances for all of the other characters have all somehow managed to come so easy. Someone has to have more of a challenge.

“Community” – To actually make it to that sixth season … then we can have the movie. No ratings keep us up late at night quite like the ones for this comedy do. If the show makes it to season 6, we can have a hundredth episode. You know that will be all sorts of amazing.

“Girls” – To continue pushing the envelope, and continue to focus on the story that they want to tell rather than the story that most of America may want to see.

“Glee” – To actually be more of a comedy again, and one that focuses more on where the New York characters are in their lives. Oh, and to actually move to New York permanently.

“How I Met Your Mother” – To let Ted have a few weeks in between finally closing the door on Robin, and then actually meeting the Mother for the first time. Don’t make it too much of a revolving door, please? Also, continue being legendary.

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” – To never end. Seriously, we wouldn’t mind it if ten years from now, mid-life crisis Mac and Dennis were trying to still deal with problems at Paddy’s Pub.

“The Michael J. Fox Show” – To not be afraid to make Mike a little more of a complicated guy. We’ll all still love Michael J. Fox, so don’t worry too much about that.

“Modern Family” – To have a great wedding for Cam and Mitchell that has been five years in the making, and for some ridiculously famous people to be there as guest-stars.

“Parks and Recreation” – To force Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe to not leave? Since that’s impossible, how about just trying to continue being one of those rare comedies that really keeps serial elements going week after week. Even if the show gets canceled soon, it will still make it stand out.

“Two and a Half Men” – To change it up with your female lead. Since Amber Tamblyn is so great, remember that it is okay to allow Jenny to be about more than sex and drinking. She can still love those things and have another hobby or two.
