community south park TV Crossovers: 'CSI: Des Moines' spurs Midwest hybridsOkay, fine. There is no “CSI: Des Moines.” That doesn’t mean there can’t be Midwestern crossovers.

On Monday, we covered Southern/Tropical crossovers in honor of the “CSI: Miami” leg of the series’ triple crossover event. Today is an off day for the “CSI” crossover, so until they create “CSI: Minneapolis,” we’ll have to make due with hypothetical Crossovers of the Midwest.

“Community” & “South Park”
How much would you love to see an animated version of Joel McHale on “South Park?” He could play himself; he could be a teacher. It doesn’t really matter. The tricky part is getting “South Park” on “Community.” Perhaps the four boys could be a figment of Abed’s imagination.

“Smallville” & “The United States of Tara”
The superhero from Smallville meets the woman with dissociative identity disorder from Overland Park and hijinks ensue. On “Smallville,” Clark saves Alice from a Monster of the Week in Metropolis. They bond over the whole double-life/secret identity thing they have going. When he sees Tara safely home on “United States of Tara,” Clark encounters the admiration of both Kate and Marshall.

“Glee” & “Greek”
What a delightful coincidence that both these shows are set in Ohio! We think Quinn and Rachel should go to a ZBZ party with Quinn’s older sister (played by Amanda Seyfried) and attract trouble when Rachel is chatted up by Evan and Finn and Puck crash the party. A Jets vs. Sharks-style musical number ensues.

As manager of the quarry in Orson, Indiana, Mike Heck (Neil Flynn) could be put in charge of filling in the pit in Pawnee, Indiana for Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler). It’s a flimsy plot, but getting Flynn and Poehler together hardly needs a plot, right?
