Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, October 29, 2009

October 29, 2009 by  

Welcome to Thursday. It’s short and sweet today. I’m heading of early this morning to have the procedure on my back. I’ll take any extra good thoughts you can throw my way today. I’m so ready to be done with all of this. Here’s to hoping it works!

But it’s Thursday and I didn’t want to leave you with nothing, so take a look at just some of the TV on tonight! Much of it is Halloween related so be sure not to get too scared.  I’ve included sneak peeks for tonight’s THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, THE OFFICE and SUPERNATURAL to get you pumped for tonight.  Enjoy!

Heads up – there’s a new show called THE DRAFT premiering at 10:30pm on FX tonight. I really don’t know anything about it, but you might want to check it out.  FX shows are usually a good bet.

And speaking of sports, I might in the minority of people who care, but Bill Simmons aka “The Sports Guy” is guesting on THE COLBERT REPORT tonight. I’ll definitely be tuning in.
