  • 71comments


What to watch on Thursday, October 4...

Hey look it's, me again! It's too bad I can't do that nose wiggle like Samantha on Bewitched and freeze time, because tonight's TV lineup is seriously stacked:

SEASON 7 PREMIERE, 8pm, NBC
30 Rock
This is the final season for Tina Fey's satirical look at working on an NBC sketch show. Aw man, aren't we all going to miss her once it's over? But hey, Bryan Cranston is going to guest-star this year! Until then, in tonight's episode, "The Beginning of the End," Liz is stunned by the poor quality of programming Jack has planned for the fall and Jenna asks Liz to be a bridesmaid.


8:30pm, NBC
Up All Night
SNL alum Rachel Dratch makes an appearance tonight as Linda, an avid fan of Ava's. Meanwhile, Chris and Reagan try to prove that they're adventurous. What do you think constitutes a true adventure? Kite surfing? Ice Climbing? Standing underneath an elephant without being trampled?


9pm, Fox
Glee
Let me let you in on a big secret: I unironically like Glee. The singing, the adorably cheesy moments, and the melodrama... The soundtrack to tonight's episode, "The Break-up," will include an acoustic version of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," Coldplay's "The Scientist," and Demi Lovato's "Give Your Heart A Break." Which of the show's couples do you think are headed for splitsville?


9pm, CBS
Person Of Interest
In "Bad Code," Reese investigates a cold case that leads him closer to Finch and his kidnapper, Root. Plus Margo Martindale (Justified) makes a guest appearance as a woman from Root's past.


SEASON 6 PREMIERE, 10pm, MTV
Jersey Shore
Tonight the gang kicks off their final season of GTL'ing as The Situtation talks about his recovery, Deena deals with her long-distance relationship, and Snooki adjusts to being in pregnant in a party house.
