Some shows are ending, but some are just beginning. Either way, you definitely won’t want to miss some of the must-see TV this week. Whether you’re in it for romance or you’d rather laugh – or feel a little awkward – you’ll get your fill.
American Idol – Wednesday, FOX: Don’t miss the top 10 performing songs of past Idol winners. This is the first themed night of the 2013 season, and it’s narrowed down to 10 competitors. Who is your favorite; Paul Jolley from Palmesrville, TN, Janelle Arthur from Oliver Springs, TN, Kree Harrison from Nashville, TN, Lazaro Arbos from Naples FL, Devin Valez from Chicago, IL, Burnell Taylor from New Orleans, LA, Angie Miller from Beverly, MA, Curtis Finch Jr. from St. Louis, MO, Amber Holcomb from Houston, TX, or Candice Glover from St. Helena Island, SC?
Vampire Diaries – Thursday, CW: Teams Damon and Stefan can’t complain with both vamps getting equal air time nowadays on TVD. But with Elena deciding to take matters into her own hands and acting out like well, a preacher’s daughter, both are concerned about her state of mind. They send her back to high school, where Elena has the best idea ever – joining the cheerleading squad. Expect to see more of Elena playing the bad girl while the others race for a cure.
Parks and Recreation – Thursday, NBC: If you’re not exactly the “glass of wine and reality TV” type, you’ll probably be overjoyed to hear that Parks and Rec makes its triumphant return after all of the wedding hubbub is finally over for Leslie and Ben. After Leslie biffed it at her media event, Ben heads off to his new job with the Sweetums Charity Foundation and offers Andy a job with him, the gang is up to their old tricks after the short interlude for quirky romance, so diehard fans will definitely appreciate Leslie’s antics in trying to save a video store and an appearance by indie darling Jason Schwartzman this week.
Girls – Sunday, HBO: If you’re still a Girls virgin, now would be a great time to get hooked. After all, it’s the season two finale and you’ll probably be checking out past episodes after seeing the drama unfold. The last episode sends the season out with a bang, with Judd Apatow joining Lena Dunham as director. You can expect drama between Marnie and Charlie as they work to define their relationship, while Ray and Shoshanna are tentatively back together.
