  • 57comments

What to watch on Thursday, March 15...

If you were planning on doing anything productive tonight, just step away from that dream and get real:

MIDSEASON PREMIERE, 8pm, NBC
Community
Today's the day many thought might never happen! Community returns to primetime tonight with "Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts" in which Shirley and Andre's remarriage throws the gang into a wedding-planning frenzy. Meanwhile Pierce and Shirley pitch their sandwich shop idea to Dean Pelton. And we can go from missing this show dearly to nit-picking its every joke, just as the good lord intended!

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
Also returning tonight (from a much briefer hiatus): Everybody's favorite vampire-themed costume party! In "1912" we'll learn a bit more about what the Salvatore Bros' hair looked like during the early 20th Century, plus an impromptu mission by a two members of Mystic Falls' #1 Teen Detective Agency will unveil A LOT more about the town slasher.

SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, ABC
Missing
Guys, could everyone please stop threatening Ashley Judd's various family members? It's akin to rattling a beehive. It's just not worth the trouble, honestly. For example, tonight Judd's retired CIA operative mom character must deal with the abduction of her son when he is nabbed while studying abroad in Rome. Needless to say, she will shake an Italian.

9pm, CW
The Secret Circle
Couple things about "Lucky": Blackwell conspires to drain a witch's powers; Faye has an awkward run-in with Lee's formerly comatose girlfriend; a new guy shows up in town with a smart coat, a British accent, and a thing for Diana. But will his evident charms be enough to come between Diana and pizza? I doubt it! #pizzana

9:30pm, NBC
Up All Night
This show moves fast! Before we've even gotten a full season of Chris and Reagan's baby shenanigans, tonight Chris will start pressing for baby #2. Meanwhile Ava's attempt to mentor others does not go according to plan and Missy pulls a real Benedict Arnold when she helps Luke.
