What’s new tonight:
Community (NBC) Paintball 2: Not sure if trying to outdo or even match last season’s epic paintball apocalypse episode is a good idea, but at least Community brought in a big gun: Lost’s Josh Holloway (or Sawyer, if you prefer). He plays a mysterious figure who comes from nowhere and goes home to no one, hence the title “A Fistful of Paintballs.” Hey, Community had to get around to doing a western sometime, right?
The Vampire Diaries (The CW) I don’t even pretend to follow The Vampire Diaries (except what I catch in the final 60 seconds before Nikita—yes, I’m one of her 158 viewers), but I do know that The Shit is Going Down before next week’s season finale: Werewolf complications, new vampires and even a ritual sacrifice are on tap tonight. And yet their hair always looks so perfect …
Grey’s Anatomy (ABC) Grey’s fans have accused me of never, ever mentioning their favorite moronic nighttime doctor soap. So, there ya go. More? Tonight, Callie and Arizona begin having second thoughts about their wedding and … wait a minute. There’s a lesbian wedding? On a high-profile network series? What the fuck? OK, now I’m almost interested—is Izzy still around? No? You lost me again …
30 Rock (NBC) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 1).
Also new tonight:
Wipeout, Private Practice (ABC); The Big Bang Theory, Rules of Engagement, CSI, The Mentalist (ABC); The Office, Parks & Recreation, Outsourced (NBC); American Idol, Bones (Fox); Nikita (The CW); Swamp People, Mounted in Alaska (History); The Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo); Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Gigolos (Showtime)
