What to Watch Tonight: The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, and Project Runway All Stars

What to watch on Thursday, January 5...

Okay, here we go. There's a lot of good stuff on tonight! Plus Jersey Shore! Check it out:

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
And we're back! After SEVEN dang weeks of reruns, we finally get to see what happened after Stefan ruined Damon and Elena's plan to kill Klaus, but then stole Klaus's family. Hint: Klaus sets his sights on Elena's family. Also, a pretty doctor lady joins the show's roster of expendable characters and Tyler behaves like a monster jerk.

9pm, CW
The Secret Circle
Tonight Cassie deals with some emotional fallout from Jake's betrayal (and romantic last-minute heroics) by confiding in Adam and exploring her dark magic. Elsewhere, Faye visits a hunky witch doctor to acquire magic of her own and Diana's badass grandmother arrives to make some trouble. (I've seen this episode and I can confirm that it DOES contain magic. And it's the show's best use of magic yet.)

9pm, ABC
Grey's Anatomy
The staff races to deal with the casualties of a multi-car pileup, including Teddy who still doesn't know her husband has died. Plus Lexie must work alongside Mark's new girlfriend Julia during an important surgery. Good times? Great times.

SEASON 5 PREMIERE, 10pm, MTV
Jersey Shore
They're in New Jersey again.

SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, Lifetime
Project Runway All Stars
Tonight Project Runway finally gives in to the returning veterans trend when it brings us its first ever all-star season! Thirteen also-rans, fan-favorites, and especially camera-friendly designers return tonight, including Austin Scarlett, Mondo Guerra, and noted cat-thrower Kenley Collins. Unfortunately Heidi, Tim, and the regular judges are sitting this one out, so instead someone named Angela Lindvall will be hosting and Joanna Cole will be mentoring. (Isaac Mizrahi and Harvey Weinstein's wife will be judging.)

Now, is it just me after reading these comments that notices more people seem exicted abot TSC than...ANYTHING else? Or am I just missing some comments? Because the majority of these have TSC. I'm happy about that. It seemse like it might become better as the episodes go on.

forgot to mention that I will be glued to my tv from 8 to 10pm to watch TVD and TSC

I've noticed that a lot more people are admitting that they watch TVD because it's finally being recognized as a show suitable for adults, and comparable (but way better) to True Blood. Personally I think this is fangtastic.

Craig Ferguson! Plus Tom Selleck! That's a one gorgeous man. Tom is okay too.

Best part about having The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle back? You know, other than getting to see awesome new episodes...Price Peterson's recaps! :)
Reply

I know a few people who don't really like TVD and TSC (unbelievable as that may seem), but watch them purely for Price's hilarious recaps. They should pay him royalty fees, or at the very least send him a nice gift basket (you know, the ones with the gourmet mustard and apple-cinnamon chardonnay jelly . . . the jelly is a must).

Weirdly enough, I hate TSC but like TVD. I do mostly watch for Price's recaps though. I think he single-handedly keeps the CW in biz.

I'll probably watch The Secret Circle but I have a massive backlog of other shows so I might knock this one on the head. Oh sod it, I'll watch this one, but if it's not great then I'll give up on the show.

Also, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and maybe a new show called Eternal Law? I've only just heard of it and don't really know what it's about.

Vampire Diaries!!! I've been waiting forever (by the way, who in Elena's family is LEFT to set your sights on? Oh, I guess you could kill Jeremy without me caring an ounce about it)

Can we include Bonnie as part of Elena's family? She can be killed off.

The Vampire Diaries (really felt a lot longer than seven weeks), The Secret Circle, and Conan.

The only thing separating this day from televisual perfection is the lack of Bones' mid-season finale. Been waiting so long for TSC to come back. Cannot-frickin' wait.
