There’s a whole lot of TV on tonight – can’t wait!  SUPERNATURAL and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES are both back tonight after forever!

The 8:00 Hour –

The series premiere of ABC’s latest sure-to-be hit THE DEEP END starts tonight.  The story of a bunch of pretty lawyers as they navigate the waters of being first years at a large firm.  Matt Long and Billy Zane head up a great cast that includes Tina Majorino and Clancy Brown.  The show has it’s “oh come on really” moments, but the premiere, featuring Meredith Monroe (Andy McPhee!) is charming enough to keep me interested!  Over on CBS, there are two reruns of THE BIG BANG THEORY – up first is the episode with the killer robots and the second episode is the trip to Vegas!  NBC has all new episodes of COMMUNITY and PARKS AND RECREATION.  On COMMUNITY, Jeff has a secret new relationship and the gang is trying to figure out who it is; on PARKS AND REC, Leslie plans a dinner party at her house to impress her new boyfriend Justin.

BONES is all new on FOX – Brennan and Booth investigate a highly classified case that screams “JFK conspiracy.”  Over on The CW, catch an all new episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Damon heads to Georgia to meet up with an old friend, and Stefan encourages Bonnie to embrace her powers!

The 9:00 Hour –

ABC has an all new episode of GREY’S ANATOMY – Izzie is back to reconnect with Alex and Derek confronts the Chief about his problems.  An all new episode of CSI airs on CBS – a golf pro is killed.

An all new episode of FRINGE airs on FOX.  Peter is infected by a dangerous virus that leads to a quarantine.  NBC has an all new episode of THE OFFICE and 30 ROCK.  Up first, on THE OFFICE, the gang meets a potential new buyer of Dunder Mifflin.  On 30 ROCK, Liz tries to get some excitement in the show, and so everyone heads out on a road trip, with Jack tagging along and making a stop along the way.  SUPERNATURAL is FINALLY back!!!  Sam and Dean get themselves committed and they are almost pushed to their breaking points.  Check out an all new episode of FIRST 48 on A&E – body parts are found in Biscayne Bay in FL.

You’ll find an all new episode of REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY on Bravo.  Check out the  third episode of one of my new favorite shows, ARCHER, on FX.  Mallory decides that they are not diverse enough, so she brings on secret agent Conway who is both black and Jewish.  Archer pretty much hates him, and the sight gag of Archer with a mustache is genius enough to tune in!

Over on Lifetime, PROJECT RUNWAY has an all new episode – the designers face their second challenge!  MANHUNTERS: FUGITIVE TASK FORCE is all new on A&E and JERSEY SHORE is all new on MTV.  Most importantly, the winter premiere of BURN NOTICE is on USA and it features an incredible reunion!  Cagney and Lacey are back together as Tyne Daly guest stars as a widow that Mike and Fi agree to help!  SO excited that this show is back!
