Parks and Recreation, The Vampire Diaries, and Community

  • 42comments

What to watch on Thursday, May 12.

I may just be speaking for myself (I am definitely just speaking for myself), but tonight's TV schedule consists of only the Vampire Diaries finale and just a bunch of other junk. Just kidding, a lot of the other shows are good, but who cares, Damon's been bitten by a werewolf!


SEASON 2 FINALE, 8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
It's been a long season (the LONGEST season?), but it all comes down to tonight and whether or not the charismatic, best-paid star of The CW's best show will or won't die of a werewolf bite. What is going to happen to Damon, you guys?? I am VERY nervous.

9:30 & 10pm, NBC
Parks & Recreation
When Leslie and Ben take a close-quarters road trip to Indianapolis, it's all she can do to not try and make out with him (which, fair enough!). Meanwhile, Ron imparts his governmental views upon a child.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, CW
Nikita
In tonight's season finale of America's favorite show about rogue spies who just need to RELAX more, Percy tries ONCE AGAIN to take over the CIA, and Nikita's life is ONCE AGAIN in danger. One day these people will realize that the real killer is the stress they bring on themselves, you know?

SEASON 2 FINALE, 8pm, NBC
Community
It's the second part of last week's awesome paintball rematch, which is also the Season 2 finale, so tune in to watch as the study group unites to destroy their invaders once and for all.

SEASON 11 FINALE, 9pm, CBS
CSI
It's amazing that after eleven seasons, Las Vegas still has people left to be murdered! In tonight's season finale, Ray tracks serial killer Nate Haskell to the original house where his killing spree began.

SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 10pm, Discovery
Swords: Life on the Line
Probably the biggest TV trend of our current downward-trending economy is the absolute glut of reality shows concerning terrible blue collar jobs. Tonight, Swords returns for a third season in which we'll watch a clumsy greenhorn crew get used to the deep sea fisherman lifestyle, plus Linda and Scotty renew their friendly rivalry. But seriously, is Damon really gonna DIE?? #savedamon
