Thursday: also known as T.V. night!

Seriously though, am I the only one who has noticed how many great shows are on on Thursdays? I would think that tivo's everywhere should be going crazy! (I however, do not have one). So for those of you who are not familiar with the many great shows on tonight, I have decided to write all about them here.

1. The Vampire Diaries The CW 8:00

The show features a high school who is torn between two vampire brothers. Between dead parents, drugs, "mysterious killings", and a psychic best friend, the show is anything but boring.



While it may be forever doomed to be compared to twilight (note the resemblance of one of the main characters, Stefan, to Twilight's Edward) the show is actually based on a series of books which were written before Twilight ever was. Sure the two have some similarities, but I know all my girls out there don't mind another hot vampire falls in love with human girl story. Right ladies?

2.Community NBC 9:30/8:30 central
This show fallows a guy named Jeff and his fellow classmates. Shady, lazy, and seemingly uncaring of what is "right" or "wrong", Jeff finds himself back in school. The show includes every stereotype (as much as I hate the word) that you find at community college, which are each portrayed both truthfully, and comically.


3. Project Runway Lifetime, 10:00
What girl doesn't love this show? It manages to retain everything that we love about reality shows (competition, skill, real people, excitement) without feeling like another cheesy, scripted attempt to make money. Of course, lets not forget it's fabulous hosts Heidi Clum and Tim Gund, who really are the backbone of the show.


4. SkinsBBC America, check your local listings

This is a show that I just discovered (mostly because until recently, I didn't know that my house got the channel BBC America). The show revolves around several teens and things that they go through. I think one of the reasons that I enjoy this show is because the characters in it are nothing like myself. The drink, do drugs, have sex. At first, I was a little shocked, but there really is a lot more to the show. It is filled with drama, but in a good way.



5. The Office NBC 9:00

Chronicaling the day to day happenings at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, there is no doubt that The Office has been popular with many people. While it's specific style of comedy is definetly not enjoyed by everyone, Office is assuradly unlike most other shows on t.v. From it's characters, to "breaking the fourth wall", to the "I cant believe that just happened" moments, the office is very entertaining.



6. Everything Else
There are many, many other good shows on on Thursday evenings, the above are simply the ones I watch. From Survivor, NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, to Fringe there is definetly something on for everyone. So, check your local listings people!

Love your list!

I watched the first two seasons of Skins this past spring and LOVED it. It was so risque and scandalous... none of the shows we have here compare to it. I haven't watched the new season though, since the got rid of the entire cast from the first two seasons and redid the show. I'm glad to hear it's still good.

I also love the Vampire Diaries! I didn't want to get sucked into any more teen dramas, but it's a really good show... and I'd take Stefan (or even Damien) over Edward ANY day.
