What to Watch on TV: Thursday Edition
America's Got Talent @ 8:30pm
Ringmaster Jerry Springer's three-ring talent contest has progressed mightily through the weeks, starting with the seven-week, country-spanning audition process that began in June and featured stopovers in Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta and New York. Then came the "Vegas Callbacks" and the Top 40 showdowns. Tonight should be a real circus when the Top 10 variety acts are unveiled.

Burn Notice @ 10pm
Michael knows he isn't the only ex-spy out there trying to makes ends meet, but he very well could be the only one doing, well, honest work. This is all too clear when a fellow former operative reappears and contacts Michael with a job offer he has no problem refusing. Michael is asked to perform a contract killing, but like the modern-day knight in shining armor he is, he opts to protect the woman who has been targeted instead. Tim Matheson guest stars.

Top Pop Group @ 10pm
Nine pop groups of all different stripes and styles square off in this battle of the bands, with a $100,000 prize awaiting the winner. Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child, Taboo of Black Eyed Peas and choreographer Brian Friedman (who has worked with Britney Spears, Prince, Beyoncé, Pink and Usher, to name just a few) are the judges. Mario Lopez hosts.

Tabatha's Salon Takeover @ 10pm
Tabatha wants to show the owners and staff of a faltering strip-mall salon on Long Island how to improve their styling skills and customer service. And she comes up with the perfect plan when she takes them on a field trip to the Big Apple to see what goes on at a high-class, successful Manhattan salon.
