McHale admitted to Gold Derby senior editors Rob Licuria and Chris Beachum that earning Emmy recognition for “Community” remains an uphill battle. “With the competition we’re up against on Thursday nights (“The Big Bang Theory” on CBS and “American Idol” on Fox), it’s tough. I hope there’s awareness for it.”

Were he to be nominated, McHale says he is lucky to have a load of episodes from which to choose one for screening by the Emmy judging panels. In addition to “Intro to Political Science” (where he performs “Faith” while running for student government), he is also considering “Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking” (his character both hopes and fears his long-lost father might visit) and “Critical Film Studies” (parodies of “My Dinner with Andre” and “Pulp Fiction” have him opening up about his past).

Joel McHale Hacks Ryan Seacrest’s Website & Twitter

By , April 2, 2010

In one of the better April Fools Day stunts, the star of NBC’s Community and host of The Soup, Joel McHale, has taken over Ryan Seacrest’s Twitter and official website and crashed it! McHale is known for making fun of Seacrest on his weekly E! show, but in the spirit of April 1, the American Idol host is obviously in on the gag and up for a bit of fun.

A couple of the funnier Twitter posts from McHale read:

I’m Joel McHale. I’ve taken over Ryan’s Twitter and his treehouse. Anyone know how to bake cookies?

Ryan bought a yacht and will be sailing away on it as soon as he gets it out of the bottle.
