Good day, TV friends.

Up for a quick look at what’s on tap this evening?

CBS has again preempted their regular Thursday night programming for NCAA basketball and The CW isn’t airing fresh eps, so the lineup isn’t as crowded as usual.

Still, there are several options, including IDOL, a milestone OFFICE ep, the season finale of JERSEY SHORE and so much more…

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