What to Watch Tonight: The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, and The Mentalist


What to watch on Thursday, February 16...

Dry your workaday-related tears: It's Thursday all of the sudden! Time to start celebrating by using your "remote controllin' hand" to tune in for these gems:

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
In "All My Children" Elena will find out in record time exactly what (or who) Damon did after the ball. Plus Bonnie and Abby will return to deal with some unfinished business with the spirits of nature. Meanwhile Elijah has had it UP TO HERE with Elena, and ends up presenting an ultimatum to Damon and Stefan that threatens Elena's life. Fair enough, honestly.

9pm, CW
The Secret Circle
Tonight sees the long-awaited arrival of Cassie's supposedly evil father John Blackwell, who comes in search of a now-pulverized medallion. Whoops! Meanwhile Cassie gets kidnapped by witch hunters and Melissa starts spending more time with Callum, to Faye and Diana's disapproval. But will Diana be too preoccupied with pizza to help out? Tune in! #Pizzana

9pm, CBS
Person of Interest
Tonight's person of interest dwells in the midst of a smuggling ring, so Reese must infiltrate said ring in order to do his dang job. That sounds annoying. Do you get good medical benefits, Reese?

9:30pm, NBC
Up All Night
Reagan and Chris decide to take Amy on her first flight, but find that air travel is especially awful with a baby. Meanwhile Ava officiates the wedding of a former bandmate (Alanis Morissette!) and Kevin ends up getting an earful about Ava's views on marriage.

10pm, CBS
The Mentalist
Tonight Jane has mixed feelings when a murderer she once helped nab gets furloughed in order to help the team solve a related homicide. Meanwhile Rigsby does his best to prepare for impending fatherhood. Firearms go on a high shelf, that's all I got.

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 9pm, OWN
Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview
As pop blogger extraordinaire Rich Juzwiak recently pointed out, Whitney Houston's 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey is the closest we'll ever get to an autobiography; it's the most candid she ever was about her past mistakes and her then-present struggles. So in memory of our modern day Judy Garland, why not tune in for this full rebroadcast of the interview which originally aired over the course of two episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show back in the fall of 2009.

Person of Interest, The Big Bang Theory and LOOOOOOOOL @ The Mentalist. Jane is the protagonists's last name, and his first name is Patrick - so obviously it's supposed to be "he", but whatever... *rolleyes*

Errrrm, on 'The Mentalist' Jane is a HE not a SHE. Confusing for those that watch it, but it's actually his surname.



Anyway: The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, The Mentlist, 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, ARCHER, Unsupervised, Seyfried on Leno, John Stewart, Smart on Ferguson, Conan and maybe, just maybe, Lincoln on Letterman.

yeah, I watch way too much.. when I start shows then I don't like to stop, unless it just gets really bad lol



the late night stuff makes it seem like more than it is lol some nights you can watch all without it overlapping, but only if there's only one person you want to see on each

I checked out Parks & Recreation just a few days ago and I thought it was OK, so I didn't continue watching. I really only watched the pilot though.. Does it get better after that?



+1 for The Vampire Diaries!

I'm actually in the same boat. Because so many people seem to like it, I watched a couple episodes from season 1... and I didn't like em enough to keep watching. Based on some of these comments, maybe I'll skip ahead a bit and give it another try.

yeah gets a lot better one of my fave shows, and adam scott rocks! only good thing about party down getting canceled is that he is now on parks and rec.
Reply

My understanding is that quite many people (critics too) agree that Parks & Rec, unlike many other shows, has gotten better over the years. It had a shaky start, but it has matured and found its style.
Reply

personally, I think Parks & Recreation got amazing when Adam Scott joined the cast.. Rob Lowe isn't bad either.. just have to stick it out until end of season 2, season 3 is when they really hit their stride.

Thank you for explaining! Well now I know what series to watch next when I run out of episodes with my current ones (which will be soon). I'll give it another shot then!
