8 Reasons we’re excited for Thursday Night Television

In a very particular, well thought out and concise order, the following is what this TV Addict is excited for tonight and why. By all means, add your list in the comments below.

Because Kate and Juliet are forced to work together to save Jack’s life… can you say awkward?

Not only is Addison returning to set McDreamy and Meredith straight, Dr. Hahn and Callie are quickly becoming Seattle Grace’s most intriguing new couple. Exactly how awesome is Dr. Hahn, so awesome that she warrants her own ‘Mc’ and is from here on in, simply going to be referred to as McHahn [Remember you heard it here first!]

President Lex, this we have to see.

Because we’re dying to know where Toby ran off to after last week’s embarrassing office faux paux! WWHRD? — What Would Human Resources Do? — definitely not that.

It’s nice to know that at least in the world of Winchester, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is still alive. Or in the case of tonight’s episode, on the phone.

6. 30 ROCK, 9PM NBC
Not only does Liz Lemon make me smile, I’m just going to say it, she makes me feel better about myself!

If UGLY BETTY doesn’t want to soon find itself off this illustrious and important list, we’re hoping this week’s episode brings us one step closer to Wilihemina’s triumphant [and more importantly funny] return to Mode.

It’s not new, it’s not exciting, but at least it’s not cancelled.

    Gah! Its Thursday again?

    I swear the programmers are trying to kill us by having so many great shows on one night.

    And LOST blew my freaking mind all over the wall so that I was unable to even enjoy the rest of the shows because of the greatness of their first episode back. I think it just might be the best episode in all of LOST’s history.

  • Josh Emerson

    Last night had nothing, and now tonight there are six shows I’m going to watch!

    1. 30 Rock – Still my favorite show. Can’t wait to see what happens tonight now that Jack has been demoted to a lower office.
    2. The Office – These post-strike episodes have been great!
    3. Ugly Betty – I’m starting to come around to a Gio/Betty relationship.
    4. Grey’s Anatomy – Addy is back! She should stay there.
    5. Lost – Meh. I am not a Jack fan at all.
    6. Scrubs – Maybe the move to ABC will put some life back into this show. Also, I hope they spring for some HD cameras even though it’ll be the final season.

    I recently discovered that the only shows I watch are on Thursday and Monday and there are SO many good ones those days!

    I agree with you for the most part, except for
    1) Callie and Hahn are not the most intriguing new couple because I HATE Hahn. I think the writers were going for business-like and practical with her character but ended up with complete bitch. Until she has a good reason for being so mean (and unprofessional!) to Christina I will continue to hate her. Plus, she’s turning Callie into a mean girl (making Christina feel excluded in her own apartment is not nice at all).

    2) You made me think that Scrubs was a repeat tonight (by saying it’s not new), so I had to rush over to tvguide.com to make sure it wasn’t. I do agree that it’s not as great as it was in earlier seasons, but I still am a loyal Scrubs fan.

    Grey’s are making Hahn and Callie a couple? What? Can’t two women just be friends? I think Hahn is hard on Christina because she believes that Christina got everything the easy way through her relationship with Burk. I guess it’s time for her to work a little harder for things. But making Christina feel excluded was low.

  • Stef

    Oh Thursdays, how I love and hate you at the same time. My poor Tivo might collapse under that weight!
