What to Watch Tonight: The Vampire Diaries, Person of Interest, and The Secret Circle


What to watch on Thursday, February 2...

Is it THURSDAY yet? See what happened is, I replaced "Friday" with "Thursday" because Thursday's TV is SO GOOD. But to answer that question, yes, it's Thursday. Yippee:

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
After taking a week off due to recover from awesomeness exhaustion, TVD returns tonight to finally reveal Elijah's new haircut! Meanwhile Sheriff Forbes continues looking into the murder of the Medical Examiner (aw, isn't she cute?) and Bill Forbes has an unfortunate encounter with the business end of a steak knife (thanks for that spoiler, CW promo department!).

8pm, NBC
30 Rock
Tonight Liz and Jack get down to the nitty gritty of her new employment contract, plus Kenneth continues looking for page work outside of NBC. Meanwhile Tracy and Jenna agree to provide entertainment for their accountant's son's Bar Mitzvah. Sounds like times are tough for everyone, you know? #politics

9pm, CBS
Person of Interest
Zoe's back! Hey where you been, girl? Anyway, tonight Reese teams up with Zoe to help prevent bad times for a particularly unlucky person of interest. Whoa that's the title, how'd that happen?

9pm, CW
The Secret Circle
Tonight we'll see the aftermath of TSC's last (stellar) episode: Cassie enlists the circle to help deal with the witch hunter threat, plus Faye and Melissa dabble in a terribly dangerous witch drug. Which drug? Witch drug. Also Cassie accidentally reveals her true preference in the Adam vs. Jake situation. Haha, please.

SERIES PREMIERE, 11pm, MTV
I Just Want My Pants Back
After last year's sneak preview following the VMAs, MTV finally unveils its newest dramedy series I Just Want My Pants Back, the NYC-set slacker coming-of-age saga based on a novel by David J. Rosen. And it looks pretty good? In tonight's official premiere, a guy named Jason has a one-night stand with a pretty lady who steals his jeans. Youth, am I right? Go forth.

SERIES 3 PREMIERE, 12am, Cartoon Network
Delocated!
For the past few years Delocated! has been one of Adult Swim's weirdest and hardest-to-watch comedies, and that's saying something. But it's also one of the network's funniest, which is no surprise given it's from the makers of Wonder Showzen. In tonight's Season 3 premiere, witness-protected reality TV subject Jon adjusts to his new life in semi-anonymity on the run from the Russian mafia. P.S. Here's the slightly incredible new title sequence:

For some reason, my DVR wasn't going to record 30 Rock even though it's on my series list. Actually, now that I think about it, all my DVR problems have been with NBC shows lately, I think my DVR is trying to tell me something.



Anyway, tonight it'll be 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, The Office, and Archer.

Only "The Big Bang Theory" for me! I wish CBS would cancel "Rob" and bring back "Rules of Engagement" already!

First I have to say how NOTHING was on last night, but then come Thursday and EVERYTHING is new...thanks TV Gods for making life sooo hard (first for finding something to do other than watch TV, and then for having to pick what to watch, in case that wasn't clear...)



Tonight my line up will consist of my guilty pleasure The Vampire Dairies (while flipping to The Big Bang Theory during commercials), followed by my pity watch of The Finder (still crossing my fingers it gets better), and rounding out my TV-packed evening with The Mentalist for some blood-drawn smiley face fun.

The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle LIVE! CW's week off only makes me want to watch them both that much more. Although, when am I never looking forward to watching these two shows and then reading Price's recaps the next day. :)



On DVR will be POI.
