What to Watch Tonight: A 30 Rock Wedding, Glee's Late Thanksgiving, and Scandal

By Tim Surette

Nov 29, 2012

What to watch on Thursday, November 29...

8pm, NBC
30 Rock
It's the wedding that no one was waiting for! After years of ruining relationships because she's attractive yet undateable, Liz Lemon is tying the knot with Criss in order to start a family. Also, look forward to a return of the Beeper King, a bad medical diagnosis for Tracy, and Jack and Jenna taking a long, hard look at themselves.

10pm, ABC
Team Pope manages a billionaire client who appears to be going cuckoo in tonight's "Defiance." Meanwhile, the President of the United States, fresh off scandals of his own, prepares for his fiftieth birthday party while his pouty wife says she doesn't want to go. Well excuuuuuuse me, first lady!

8pm, CBS
The Big Bang Theory
Look, everyone else in the country watches this show so you may as well give in and watch it too. In "The Parking Spot Escalation," Sheldon and Wolowitz get in a spat over a parking spot on campus that results in one of them killing the other. Did I say "one of them killing each other?" I meant "laughs."

9pm, Fox
You may have just finished the last of your Thanksgiving leftovers (I will be pooping out mashed potatoes through mid-December), but Glee hasn't. In tonight's episode "Thanksgiving," Nude Erections, sorry, New Directions, gets mentored as they prepare for sectionals. Meanwhile, Kurt and Rachel have an "unconventional Thanksgiving dinner," probably because everyone celebrated Thanksgiving last week. Also, the gang performs ear-raping viral sensation "Gangnam Style" by Korean sensation Psy, the song that is on Satan's playlist for Hell. And finally, Quinn stops by for a visit, which is most likely why Fox is airing a Thanksgiving episode of Glee a week after airing a different new episode of Glee on actual Thanksgiving.

10pm, FX
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
In "Frank's Back in Business," Frank and Charlie jump into the business world with absolutely zero good ideas unless you think selling crow eggs is a good idea. And Dennis sees how far he can go with a case of mistaken identity. I also probably don't need to tell you this, but everyone makes fools of themselves.

9pm, The CW
Beauty and the Beast
In "Out of Control," J.T. thinks that handsome Vincent (the so-called "Beast") is involved in the brutal and savage murder of a (probably handsome/pretty) local college student. Meanwhile, handsome medical examiner Evan gets kidnapped, so beautiful Cat asks handsome (i.e. not very beast-like) Vincent to help her track him down.
