What to Watch…Thursday, September 18, 2008

September 18, 2008 by  

Well, well, well – there’s certainly quite a lot to watch on the old TV tonight.  We are one week out from next Thursday’s BIG premiere date (yes, I’m talking about The Office, Grey’s, etc) but some Thursday shows are getting are kicking off tonight making fans of their shows quite happy (I can feel the Supernatural fan fever in the air today).

With that…here are a few shows worthy of you watching tonight.

Smallville | 8pm on The CW | Season Premiere
SmallvilleIn the eighth-season opener, the Justice League searches for Clark, but is stymied by the new CEO of Luthorcorp, Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman); and Chloe is held prisoner by a group who have discovered her powers, while Clark has been stripped of his by Jor-El.

Supernatural | 9pm on The CW | Season Premiere
SupernaturalIn the fourth-season opener, Dean has been freed from Hell and reunites with Sam and Bobby, but the three don’t know how he returned. Bobby: Jim Beaver.

Kitchen Nightmares | 9pm on Fox
Kitchen Nightmares Chef Ramsay visits Giuseppi’s Italian restaurant in Macomb Township, Mich., and discovers an abundance of bickering from the father-son team that runs the kitchen and a shortage of patrons.

Flashpoint | 10pm on CBS
FlashpointThe team attempts to rescue a kidnapped girl who is being held at a booby-trapped house, and they learn that one of the abductors is a teen who went missing several years earlier.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia | 10pm & 10:30pm on FX | Season Premiere
It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaIn the Season 4 premiere, Dee and Charlie eat some of Frank’s stash of extraordinarily tasty meat and won’t rest until they can get more. Meanwhile, Mac and Dennis take sport hunting to the next level. Cricket: Bruce Hornsby.

In the second episode of the season (and the night)  Mac, Dennis, and Charlie take advantage of high gas prices by investing in barrels of gasoline and selling them door-to-door; Dee and Frank plot to brand Bruce Mathis (Stephen Collins) as a terrorist leader when they find out that he plans to give their money to a Muslim community center.

[GMMR: I’m happy to announce that a member of the all new Team GMMR will be covering “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” for the site this year.  If you’re a fan check in tomorrow for a review & discussion of the first two episodes of the season.]

Burn Notice | 10pm on USA | Season Finale
Burn NoticeIn the season finale of Burn Notice… when a client is being forced into a kidnapping scheme, Michael must pose as a security consultant – a guy who will stop at nothing to foil the gang’s plan.

    I can’t wait for The Office to return. It is ridiculous how excited I am. However, having Supernatural to watch tonight will help keep me from going crazy until all the premieres next week. Definitely an underrated show that should get more promotion from its network. I will also watch Flashpoint. I really am not sure why, but I like that show and the characters in it.

    So, it’s already the season finale of Burn Notice? Only 9 episodes? I feel cheated. I love that show. Does anyone know the long term plans for it? Or more specifically if there is going to be a third season?

    You know I will be watching Supernatural! I can’t believe the day is finally here! I also set the DVR for Smallville because that Lana is gone (yeah!) and isn’t the Justice League back on this one?

    Oh, and Burn Notice too. Aren’t they just taking a rest until January? Seems like all the cable shows are.

    I love Burn Notice. Best show around 🙂 (that and Mad Men) Sad that both shows only have a few more episodes left for the year.

    I think USA splits its series’ seasons into two. They do that with “Psych,” “Monk.” I’m not entirely sure about “In Plain Sight,” “Burn Notice,” etc. but I’ll check.

    Ok, that makes me feel better. I can make 3.5mo without Burn Notice, since The Office starts back in 6days!
