Take it easy today. Rest up. Drink lots of fluids. Tonight’s TV lineup is not for the weak of heart. You have to be a true TV fan to tackle the onslaught of Thursday night TV the networks throw at us. We can do it!! Are you with me? We.Can.Do.It!!!

There’s two big cameos that I’m looking forward to tonight. First up is the return of Jason Sudekis to 30 ROCK. Yup, Floyd is back and sadly it’s only for the night. Also stopping in for a quickie (hmm) is Addison Montgomery who is back at Seattle Grace while PRIVATE PRACTICE is on hiatus to perform a special surgery (and hopefully talk some sense into Meredith).

    I’m so excited for tonight! I’ve stayed mostly spoiler-free for “The Office” and really look forward to seeing sassy Stanley and the gang. 🙂 I’ve come to LOVE “Lost” – making it my 2nd favorite show. I can hardly wait to see how our questions get answered by the end of the season!

    I regret that I need to wait until Fridays to watch “Grey’s” – as I think it’s definitely been on an upswing (for the most part) this season. After initialing disliking the “Addison” character, she quickly became one of my favorites and it should be fun to see her back at Seattle Grace. By the way, Kath, is Joshua Jackson still going to be featured at some point? My coworker was wondering, and I KNEW you’d know the answer. 😉

    So many choices. What to watch? The Office of course; after that, it can go any which way.
