Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, December 2, 2010

December 2, 2010 by  

I’m especially stoked for TV tonight. Maybe because I get to return to Mystic Falls. Perhaps it’s my newfound obsession with the folks at Greendale Community College. Or is it the possibility of this long, drawn out tale de Christina Yang coming to an end? Okay, it’s probably just that I get to see John Krasinski in my living room this evening.

Regardless, I’m going to be logging some serious TV hours. Bring it, Thursday television. Tonight, I’m your bitch.

Which shows are you going to watch live, DVR for later, or skip altogether?

Here are a few highlights from the lineup…
