What to Watch Tonight: The Office, The Big Bang Theory, and The League

What to watch on Thursday, November 17...

I don't know. Feels kinda weird to be experiencing a Thursday night without vampires or witches. But at least we've got science nerds and workplace drama to tide us over, right? Right?? (Somebody hold me.)

9pm, NBC
The Office
Andy decides to try and inspire the group by whisking them away on a field trip to Gettysburg. Those who stay behind are enlisted by Robert California to devise the company's next big idea. Team Robert California! (Quick question: Was anybody else weirdly jealous of Robert California's son? That kid's dad is the best!)

8pm, CBS
The Big Bang Theory
Tonight Sheldon finds himself strangely jealous when Amy gets asked out by Stuart from the comic-book store. Might Sheldon's feelings for Amy be more complicated than he thought? Question is rhetorical, because yes. Yes they are.

9pm, ABC
Private Practice
Get ready for a double-dose of pathos when Private Practice brings us TWO hours of confrontation, romantic drama, and brand-new Mary J. Blige tracks. Tonight the gang attempts an intervention on Amelia following her latest drug binge. Plus Addison deals with the side effects of her fertility treatments and Pete and Violet's marriage reaches a crossroads. "[ ] more drama." —Mary J. Blige.

10pm, USA
Burn Notice
It's business as usual around Burn Notice headquarters when Michael must rescue a scientist who was kidnapped by an African warlord and Sam and Jesse get into trouble during an undercover operation. Also Madeline deals with a lying jerk, but, you know, join the club, Madeline.

10:30pm, FX
The League
Unanimously beloved human being Jeff Goldblum appears as Ruxin's father, an unexpected guest at Thanksgiving dinner. Equally excellent guest star Sarah Silverman appears as Andre's sister, just a lady on the prowl for some Thanksgiving tail. Good luck with that, lady who resembles Sarah Silverman!

8pm, ABC
20/20 Special Edition: Regis Philbin
As Regis Philbin winds down his legendary career (before his November 18 retirement from Live! with Regis and Kelly), he'll sit down for a poignant, career-spanning interview with plucky teen reporter Katie Couric. Tune in for the reminiscences, stay for the caramel syrup Slip 'N Slide contest.

I saw a lot of people mention Community, but I don't think I saw anyone say Whitney. NBC might want to rethink which show they are thinking about cancelling.

Why does Greys Anatomy have to make room for Private Practice to air a double episode? That's just lame.

If tomorrow is Regis' last day I'll have to remember to catch Live tomorrow morning.



I'm getting so far behind in Person of Interest I'm thinking of dropping it. For some reason it just doesn't interest me.
