Best TV Shows For Your Study Break

You’ve been studying in the library for more than four hours now, expired your stash of peanut M&M’s and Baked Lays, and are desperate for a break.  Mobilizing out of the stacks and to your bed for a nap requires too many moves and takes up too much time.  Not to worry—here’s the perfect solution for you: the 20-minute TV show!  Throw your ear buds in your bag (with the rest of your study essentials) and you’ll be set for a long day at the library.

Here are some of the best 20-minute television shows:

  1. 2 Broke Girls: CBS’ new show, starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, will keep you cracking up for the entire twenty-one minutes.  Two women in their 20’s work at a diner in Brooklyn, saving money to launch their goal of a cupcake business.  Dennings & Behrs engage in witty banter, pushing the limits of cable television.  Check it out…but don’t laugh too loud on the quiet floors.
  2. Modern Family: Reflecting on the lives of three absurd families, ABC’s TV show is one that cannot be missed.  You will laugh harder than ever before while watching the unique personalities of each family member.  The absurdities that come up seem nonstop!
  3. Parks & Recreation: Parks & Rec on NBC is a hidden gem.  Right before The Office (another must-see but not as good without Steve Carrell), this humorous comedy follows the Parks and Recreation Department of a small town in Indiana.  The unexpected location provides a hilarious twist to the show, giving viewers a taste of the American town.  Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, and Rashida Jones all star in the TV show, bringing you unlimited amounts of fun.
