According to the programming guide for NBC’s “Green Week” (Nov 14th-21st), we can once again expect favorite comedies “30 Rock” and “The Office” to carry some green themes.

Sources tell me there’s no Gore cameo on “30″ this year — but I’m sure Liz Lemon won’t let us down on the green jokes. For “The Office”, Michael Scott will apparently try to help the planet with recycling, while Dwight pens “a love poem to Mother Earth”. Will Recyclops make another appearance?

What other series will be gaining some green themes or token nods to sustainable practices? Hit the jump below for “Chase”, “Law and Order”, “Undercovers” and others.

Chase (Monday/10:00pm EST)
Congressman Nevins tells Luke he is there to implement a green initiative to retrofit all U.S. Marshall offices.
Parenthood (Tuesday/10:00pm EST)
Max’s class is creating little houses out of recycled egg cartons.
Outsourced (Wednesday/9:30pm EST)
In “Outsourced,” Gupta charges his flashlight instead of using chemical batteries.
Law & Order: Los Angeles (Saturday/9:00pm EST)
It’s a new coast, but the same crime mystery formula, with a whole lot of green drama where environmental neglect looks like a crime to Detectives Winters (Skeet Ulrich) and Jarusalski (Corey Stoll). The victim is a scientist dedicated to water clean up in Los Angeles County’s polluted creeks and rivers. After word gets out that the scientist knew about his employer’s improper waste disposal practices, clues suggest the corporation’s likely involvement in the murder.
