What To Watch on TV: Thursday Edition

30 Rock @ 8:30pm

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so the slippery TV exec delicately focuses on balancing life, love and work. ("I honestly don't know how Kelly Ripa does it," he says.) Jack makes moves to nurture his long-distance romance with politico C.C. (a mighty fine Edie Falco in her recurring role), but that doesn't stop him from spieling, wheeling and dealing on a huge business arrangement with German TV honchos. Meanwhile, Liz sets her sights on buying a new abode. And Kenneth gets addicted to coffee. That's quite a jolt, considering the saintly page believes hot beverages are "the devil's temperature."

CSI: Crime Scene investigation @ 9pm

Fans of Jewel and Shooter Jennings won't want to miss tonight's episode. Jennings is a guest star, while Jewel appears as herself to sing the national anthem at a rodeo. Of course, the bull-riding event quickly turns into a crime scene with two murders occurring. The probe reveals the crimes may be connected to an illegal bull-breeding ring. World-champion cowboy Ty Murray also appears, as does Brendan Wayne, who is John "The Duke" Wayne's grandson.

Grey's Anatomy @ 9pm

Tonight's episode is brand new. That's the good news. The bad news? You guessed it: It's the last one the producers finished before the strike began. So savor it. But whether Derek and nurse Rose (Lauren Stamile) will be savoring The Kiss they shared in the last episode (When was it? 1978?) is another matter. Expect the fallout to begin tonight. Meanwhile, look for Bailey to have another bad night. And the George-Izzie romance might have run its course, but the storyline hasn't, and tonight his mother (Debra Monk) is added to the mix.

Make Me a Supermodel @ 10pm

Fourteen model wannabes with naked ambition go head-to-head in the inaugural episode of this 12-part competition series hosted by supermodels Tyson Beckford and Niki Taylor. Tonight, the comely posers sway into the Big Apple, moving into their New York digs and sizing up their competition. Later, they strut their stuff in Times Square, then mingle with fashion luminaries at a cocktail reception. But will they display model behavior?
