Let the TiVo battles begin! Thursday is going to be the most difficult night to decide what to watch this Fall, and tonight introduces the first round of contenders.
Over on NBC, Parks and Recreation kicks off the comedy lineup at 8:30 p.m. This is the second season of the show, and it's already looking funnier than the first; tonight, Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope accidentally marries two boy penguins to promote attendance at the zoo, ringing alarm bells in the conservative community.
After Parks is the sixth season premiere of The Office, where we'll get to see how well Jim and Pam can keep their baby a secret from everyone. Trying to remember all that went down in season five? Quiz yourself. It's not only returning shows on NBC tonight, though; check out the premiere of Joel McHale's college comedy Community at 9:30 p.m. I thought the pilot had its ups and downs, but you'll get to decide for yourself if it's worthy of a Season Pass on your TiVo.
Oh, and that's so not all that's happening on TV tonight. To see what else is on, just read more.
Over on Fox, it's the second season premiere of Fringe; I showed you a sneak peek of the season, which centers around the repercussions of last season's alternate universe bombshell. Rounding out the night's premieres is the devilishly funny It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia at 10 p.m.
So besides the premieres, there's also a new episode of The Vampire Diaries, which scored record ratings for the CW last week. You guys seemed to agree what you did and didn't like, but will you be coming back for the second installment?
It's going to be a tough night to work out what to watch (not to mention actually having time to see it all in preparation for tomorrow's water cooler conversations). Both of my TiVo's tuners are full and ready to go — which shows are you going to be checking out tonight?
