What to watch on Thursday, April 12...
Today might be a good day to empty your DVR of the many hundreds of hours of telenovelas you've got stored in there. The thing's at capacity, and it's not like you're learning Spanish anytime soon. Plus you might need to record some or all of the good TV that's on tonight! See here:
SEASON 1 FINALE, 9:30pm, NBC
Up All Night
One of 2011's best new shows bids us adieu tonight (silver lining: Parks & Recreation's returning soon!) with an episode that'll bring us back to the beginning sort of. When Reagan loses her engagement ring, Chris decides he'll take the opportunity to surprise her with a proper re-proposal. Meanwhile Kevin wants back with Ava and he'll turn to Julian, the world's suavest Armenian-American, for help.
SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 12am, Cartoon Network
It may not bring in blockbuster ratings, but for my money Eagleheart's one of the most consistently hilarious shows on television. If you haven't seen it, think Walker Texas Ranger after too many whip-its. And tonight it returns for Season 2! In "Gabey, Calvin and Stu," U.S. Marshall Chris Monsanto (Chris Elliott) must face his past in order to protect the future. (Just like always.)
ABC's trashiest serial-procedural (at least until Revenge returns) airs its second episode tonight, "Dirty Little Secrets." It concerns the little black book of a notorious D.C. madam, and how the team must prevent its contents from being made public.
Following up last week's masterful Ken Burns parody, this week's episode, "Origins of Vampire Mythology," details Britta's avoidance of an old flame—Half the gang want to help her stay away from him while the other half just want to see what he looks like. Be careful guys, the episode title certainly doesn't bode well for his personality.
Returning from a brief hiatus, tonight we'll find out just how awkwardly Andy will dump his current girlfriend so that he can be with Erin. Meanwhile Robert California urges the staff to properly welcome their new boss (?) Nellie, but the party planning committee has other ideas.
