I can’t believe it’s only 2 weeks until Black Friday! No, I know what day of the week it is, but apparently Thanksgiving doesn’t exist anymore, because most stores will be starting their Black Friday sales on Turkey Day this year! While many folks seem to be upset by this, I think it’s great—I’d much rather go shopping at a normal hour of the day, rather than wake up for a 4 or 5am sale! I’m still not sure if I’m even going to bother with the crowds just to save a few dollars, but I’ve still got plenty of time to decide. Speaking of deciding, we’ve got some suggestions to help you decide what to check out on TV tonight.
Tonight, Parks and Rec returns for a guest arc on the NBC schedule. This week and next, we get double episodes, and then it hibernates until January. In the last episode, Leslie was under fire after Donna accidentally made an explicit tweet, Andy and April helped Tom get a date, and Ben helped an cooperative Ron make a will to protect his secret fortune from going to the government.
I hate how NBC has chosen to bounce this show around the schedule in order to try to boost ratings of some of its new shows like Sean Saves the World. This also has the side effect of having fun holiday-themed episodes, like tonight’s Halloween episode, no longer air at the appropriate time of year.
On tonight’s first episode, “Filibuster,” Leslie is forced to leave the birthday party she’s throwing for Ben and attend an emergency late-night filibuster. Meanwhile, Tom is determined to make some lasting memories with his new girlfriend; Ron and Donna go hunting; and April and Andy reconnect. Then, in “Recall Vote,” Leslie faces the recall election on Halloween as she also prepares a haunted house with Ben, Ann, and Chris. At the same time, Tom worries Rent-a-Swag’s days are numbered, and so he recruits Ron to help save his business.
Enjoy the extended Halloween tonight on NBC at 8/7c & 8:31/7:31c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Grey’s Anatomy, Sean Saves the World, The Michael J. Fox Show, Parenthood, Glee, Ground Floor, White Collar, Covert Affairs, and The Returned.
