Yet again, the networks, in their bizarre desire to dominate the lucrative Thursday night ad slots, have stacked all of their highest rated shows there.
In the 8:00 hour, I will have to choose to between Community, Flash Forward, and the Vampire Diaries. Yes, I have a DVR, but not in my living room, where I actually watch most of my TV. Vampire Diaries premieres first, so I’ll give that one a shot. Then, I’ll make my decisions about Flash Forward and Community. I really like Joel McHale, so I will definitely be recording Community for later viewing. Flash Forward looks intriguing, but I’ll have to see if before I know if it’s must-see TV. Survivor is not a factor.
The 9:00 hour is much easier for me. Supernatural live. The Office when SPN is a repeat. No worries.
And 10:00 is not an issue. I’ll be getting the dogs and then myself ready for bed.
How about you? Read the full story in Variety, then let me know what your Thursday nights look like.
