Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, November 19, 2009

November 19, 2009 by  

It’s comedy night one right.  But the dramas seem to know a thing or two about how to make good Thursday TV too.

Before we get into tonight’s TV spotlight, just a heads up that GMMR will be somewhat quiet today. I’m heading off to meet with a surgeon about my back woes. Hopefully he has some thoughts on how to get me back up and running (which would really be something since I’ve never really been much of a runner).

Here’s a look at highlights from tonight’s TV lineup. What shows are you most looking forward to tonight?

Flash Forward | 8pm on ABC
Bryce searches for the woman in his flashforward; Tracy’s odd behavior concerns Aaron; Demetri’s colleagues try to locate the caller who warned him about his fate. [GMMR: I did what I said I would. I gave Flash Forward one last shot last week. I’ve officially dropped it. I gave it a fair shake but it never pulled me in.]

The Vampire Diaries | 8pm on The CW
“The Turning Point”
Damon and Stefan find they have some competition to deal with; Elena makes a shocking discovery. [GMMR: In case you didn’t know how much I love this show, check out the latest TV Talk Podcast. Ducky and I talk VAMPIRE DIARIES for a whopping 10 minutes.]

A clever castaway jeopardizes the success of a scheme to ensure safety in the game; the ninth contestant is eliminated.
