'Parks and Recreation' and 'Community' may not be the strongest performers on Thursday nights, but remain among NBC's brightest jewels.

The 2014 Golden Globes were a night to remember, not because of the actual awards -- although, it was nice to see films like '12 Years a Slave,' 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'American Hustle' walk away with some of the biggie titles -- but because of host Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and, of course, all the drunken shenanigans one expects from this particular awards show.
The night was packed with big-name celebrities who mostly followed the advice P. Diddy gave when he presented an award, "Keep drinking! It's almost over." So, in case you were watching the premiere of HBO miniseries 'True Detective' or the season 3 premiere of 'Girls,' here's all the best moments from the 2014 Golden Globes that worth watching.

Though the exit won't yet take place for a few months, 'Parks and Recreation' fans are already lamenting the series loss of stars Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones, whose characters Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins have already begun to eye their Pawnee exits.
