What's On? Thursday, 12/10/09

Lots of fun new episodes tonight to celebrate the holidays!  Check it out!

The 8:00 Hour –

Catch a rerun of FLASH FORWARD on ABC – the one where Olivia confronts Mark about the text message she got.  Over on CBS, there’s an all new episode of SURVIVOR.  Is it possible that we’re going to see Russell take this game?  I started as a Russell hater, but now I’m convinced he has to win!

Don’t miss an all new episode of BONES on FOX featuring a guest starring turn from Emily Deschanel’s sister Zooey (you might recognize her from ELF among other things).  She plays Bones’ long lost relative who Max brings around for some holiday togetherness!  NBC comedies are all new, starting with a festive COMMUNITY.  Guest star Anthony Michael Hall taunts Jeff, while Shirley plans a Christmas party for the gang!  On PARKS AND RECREATION, Leslie ends up in the middle of a sex scandal, putting her relationship with Louis CK’s Dave at risk!  Over on The CW, check out a rerun of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – it’s the episode where Elena finds out about Stefan!

The 9:00 Hour –

On ABC, a rerun of the GREY’S ANATOMY Season premiere is on tonight – you know, the one dealing with the aftermath of George’s death.  CSI is all new on CBS – Nick, Greg, and Hodges head to a bar where a murderer might be hanging out!

A brand new episode of FRINGE airs tonight.  In the episode, “Grey Matters,” Leonard Nimoy guest stars as Olivia investigates a series of weird circumstances surrounding brain surgeries.  THE OFFICE “Secret Santa” is all new – I love their Christmas episodes, and this one seems like it will be no different!   The episode pits Phyllis and Michael against each other over who gets to play Santa.  On 30 ROCK, also called “Secret Santa”, Julianne Moore guests stars and the staff deals with a wide variety of holiday issues!  SUPERNATURAL is a rerun of the episode where Dean goes to the future and Cas is awesome.

The 10:00 Hour –

ABC runs an old episode of PRIVATE PRACTICE – a rerun of this season’s premiere where we find out what happened to Violet.  An all new episode of THE MENTALIST airs on CBS – the team has to solve a murder from a fancy black-tie party!   As always, NBC has Leno.

Tonight is the season finale of IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA‘s best season to date!  “The Gang Reignites the Rivalry” with the help of Noah Bean from DAMAGES.  The episode is hilarious!   That’s followed up by the season finale of THE LEAGUE on FX.  You’ll find an all new episode of REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY on Bravo. Plus, the strange reality obsessed person in me wants to check out the next episode of JERSEY SHORE on MTV.  Thoughts?
