What To Watch on TV: Thursday Edition
The calendar says it's almost winter, but that doesn't stop Tina Fey's recommended laugher from taking on our summery national pastime. Tonight Tracy steps up to the plate when he coaches a rough-and-tumble New York Little League team, but the meddling Jack throws a curve with a Steinbrennerian pitch: He tries to turn the squad into a formidable winner with gifts (including tuxedo uniforms), and looks to fire Tracy. Back at the Rock, a studly young coffee guy perks up Liz's love life, despite their 17-year age difference.
Survivor: China @ 8pm
Tonight fans will finally get the payoff to the cliff-hanger from two weeks ago. Jeff Probst announced at tribal council that the group was staying at council to attend to some business. That sounds like bad news for the castaways, but great news for viewers. The key word tonight is blindside. One player threatens to switch things up by blindsiding their best friend in the game, and one alliance considers blindsiding one of their own members.
Scrubs @ 9:30pm
It's the day most Scrubs fans have dreaded for years now: J.D. decides it's time to grow up! And no one is more devastated by this news than Turk, the playful other half to J.D.'s inner child, so he makes it his mission to thwart J.D.'s plan. In keeping with the growing-up theme, news from Dr. Cox forces a patient to mature too quickly, and Elliot unwittingly reveals Kelso's real age.
