Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, December 10, 2009

December 10, 2009 by  

With a mix of repeats and original episodes, I might actually get to watch all my Thursday night shows on Thursday night. It’s been a while since that happened.

And it seems as there’s a battle for ‘Secret Santa’ tonight as it’s the title of both tonight’s episode of 30 ROCK and THE OFFICE. But for me, tonight is all about THE OFFICE. Tonight is the show’s Christmas episode and I can’t wait! While I’m not expecting tonight’s episode to live up to S2’s “Christmas Party” and S3’s “Benihanna Christmas”, I do expect that the show will be a lot funnier than the  disastrous S5’s “Moroccan Christmas”.

One quick announcement for BONES fans. Tonight we are having a LIVE BONES chat at 8pm EST. Watch tonight’s episode with GMMR’s BONES maven, Seeleybaby, and other BONES fans.  Isn’t it always more fun to watch with others?

The post for tonight’s chat will be going live soon so check back in a bit, but for now use the box below to set a reminder for yourself. Let us know if you’ll be joining us.

If there are any other shows that you think we should do a LIVE chat for, drop me a line in the comments and let me know.
