What to Watch Tonight: Bones, Burn Notice, and Parks and Recreation

What to watch on Thursday, November 3...

As far as days of the week go, Thursday is maybe only the fourth best. Or is it third best? I don't know, Sundays can be total bummers sometimes. Still though, tonight's one of the best nights for TV! Check out all these options:

SEASON 7 PREMIERE, 9pm, FOX
Bones
It's been an especially long hiatus for Bones fans. What have America's handsomest forensic anthropologists been up to? In tonight's Season 7 premiere, Angel and New Girl's Sister will investigate the death of an amnesiac while also attempting to figure out what their living arrangements will be once the baby is born. Typical forensic anthropologist stuff.

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
If you love flashback episodes, this one promises to be a doozie! Tonight TVD whisks us back to 1000 A.D. when the Original Vampires first came to be (jerks?). Meanwhile Damon takes some initiative in reverting Stefan back into his older, "nicer" self. (Must you, Damon?)

8:30pm, NBC
Parks and Recreation
When a local religious group declares that the end of the world is nigh, everyone in the office handles the news differently. For example, Tom goes the "huge party" route while April and Andy focus on Andy's bucket list. Poignant!

9pm, CW
The Secret Circle
When Cassie's grandmother doesn't return home from her "day trip," the kids take a road trip that involves awkward emotional confrontations, a game of Truth or Dare and, somehow, a seaweed-filled bathtub nightmare. Plus Jake!

10pm, MTV
Beavis and Butt-head
Tonight the titular terrors attempt to re-enact romantic moments from movies they've seen in order to score with chicks, and after that they'll somehow land jobs at a tech support company. I am so glad this thing is back, it is the best!

MIDSEASON PREMIERE, 10pm, USA
Burn Notice
Michael and Fiona attempt to capture a Puerto Rican hacker, but first they must deal with the dude's other, angrier enemies. Meanwhile, Sam and Jesse tutor Madeline in the fine art of police intel retrieval, which is definitely a fine art, I'm surprised you didn't know that.

Community, Bones, Parks & Rec, The Office, and I might give Beavis & Butthead another shot even though I was thoroughly disappointed with last weeks episode. Maybe I've just gotten too old, oh well. *shrug*

it's funny that Whitney's episode is titled "Two Broke-Up Guys", I wonder if that's where she got the title idea for 2 Broke Girls, or if the episode title came after 2BG. also thought about The X Factor results, but just like American Idol, they're going to drag out something that should last 5 minutes at most and waste an hour timeslot.. i'll just find out online
