What To Watch On TV: Thursday Edition

Survivor: Micronesia- Fans vs. Favorites @ 8pm

No one is playing the game better right now than former coach potato Cirie. Previously, she single-handedly gave Yau-Man the boot, and last week she orchestrated Joel's exit. Clearly, being smart and savvy are more beneficial than possessing pure brute strength. Tonight, however, the focus is on Jonathan, who is dealing with a serious infection. Will he stay or will he have to leave the game to get medical help? Meanwhile, Jason unwittingly becomes the victim in Ozzy's fake-idol ploy when he finds Ozzy's hand-carved creation on Exile Island.

Smallville @ 8pm

Kara and Jimmy go to a totally rockin' OneRepublic concert, and one of the roadies turns out to be none other than former Smallville townie Pete Ross. Unfortunately for Pete, he chews some kryptonite-laced gum and develops a bad case of superpowers. When Clark and Chloe meet up with their old friend, they warn Pete against using his newly acquired powers in public, but Lex gets wind of it. He then blackmails Pete into helping him break into Lionel's safe (man, those Luthors have serious trust issues) by threatening to reveal Chloe as a meteor freak.

Lost @ 9pm

One of the beauties of Lost is that when there's a major revelation — last week's was that the vaguely nefarious Charles Widmore owns the freighter — we're not surprised, just intrigued. Messrs. Cuse and Lindelof don't waste characters, so Widmore is merely back in action. We don't know why Penny's dad wants in on the island, but we certainly know why Jin and Sun (tonight's stars) want off: Jin's pregnant; not a good thing to be there. The episode's title, Ji Yeon, is a Korean girl's name, so can we assume they make it? Last week's tease promised that the last of the Oceanic 6 would be identified, so you do the math.

Make Me A Supermodel @ 10pm

It's a mod, mod, mod modeling world, particularly when the dirty half dozen got hip last week to brand management and vintage looks. They also celebrated hostess Niki Taylor's birthday with a homemade song, featuring the four male models crooning in tandem like a busted boy band. Our pretty "runway projects" try to stay in tune tonight with a jaunt to New Orleans for charity work. It won't be easy in the Big Easy when they participate in a cemetery shoot and a gothic catwalk show.
