  • 41comments

What to watch on Thursday, May 5.

If you were thinking about encasing your remote control in lucite and displaying it in an art gallery as a conceptual art piece about modern life, DON'T. You'll need to use that thing tonight!

9pm, NBC
The Office
In our first post-Michael Scott episode, Deangelo will reveal his true managerial colors when he plays favorites among the staff.

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
In the penultimate episode of the season, we'll follow-up on last week's bombshell developments: Jenna's possible conversion to vampire, Damon's possibly fatal werewolf bite, and Elena's possible sacrifice during Klaus' ritual. Just another night in Mystic Falls: Where "possibility" is always a bad thing.

9pm, ABC
Grey's Anatomy
Tonight, Meredith and Derek MAY or MAY NOT make a baby-related decision, plus Callie and Arizona's run into problems as their wedding draws near. Oh come on, ladies, it's probably nothing that can't be solved by a montage.

8pm, NBC
Community
Paintball alert! In tonight's first episode of a two-part season finale, guest-star Josh Holloway (Sawyer!!!) becomes a game changer in the campus paintball battle.

SEASON 5 FINALE, 10:30pm, NBC
30 Rock
When the TGS cast and crew break for summer, Liz relocates to the Hamptons—only to frown a ton when Tracy moves in next door. Plus Jack chills with Kenneth, and Jenna runs into relationship troubles with guest-star Will Forte.

10pm, CBS
The Mentalist
When a prison guard gets totally murdered outside of a jewelry store, the gang suspects that a former inmate is the culprit. Whoever it is, that person's about to get Mentalized! (Does anyone on the show ever say this?)
