Will Ferrell on The Office, Bones, and The Paul Reiser Show

What to watch on Thursday, April 14.

Get out your day planner, rip out tonight's entries, and throw 'em in a mud puddle because babygirl, you've already got plans:

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
In a sort of sequel to last year’s ridiculous 1950s-themed dance, tonight our favorite group of teens (and the monsters they sleep with) attend a 1960s-themed dance! Unfortunately, body-swapping Arch-Vampire Klaus promises to ruin proceedings, and Caroline continues to face an endless onslaught of heartache.

9pm, NBC
The Office
The inexorable march toward Steve Carrell’s departure continues as tonight Michael Scott trains his replacement, guest star Will Ferrell. [Common Sense Spoiler Alert: Will Ferrell will probably not become a permanent cast member.]

9pm, FOX
Aw, look: John Francis Daley co-wrote tonight’s episode! It concerns a myth-debunking TV host who gets real murdered. But was he killed by the legendary chupacabra, or merely by his professional rival, guest-star Jo Anne Worley? Only the most adorable Geek knows for sure.

The Paul Reiser Show
America must have demanded it, because Paul Reiser is BACK! In tonight’s series premiere, Paul Reiser (as himself) faces off against Larry David (yay!) for a game show gig. Oh, also: Andrew Daly is a cast member. FINE, The Paul Reiser Show. Fine.

9pm, CW
Work gets very annoying for Nikita tonight, when she and Owen discover one of Percy’s black boxes but disagree over what to do with it, and THEN Percy sends Michael to London to KILL her. Poor Nikita! She should just brush off her resume and walk into the nearest Walgreen’s, because enough is enough!
