The day we knew was coming but never thought would arrive is here. It’s Michael Scott’s last day at Dunder/Mifflin Sabre. Personally I though the show would die when Steve Carrel had had enough, but I’m happy its not. If last weeks impromptu Rent number was any indication tonight as Michael put it; “is gonna hurt like a MotherFu*ker” It’s a jam packed sweeps night and though the night BELONGS to the Office, there’s a lot more on. Here are our recommendations for tonight, April 28 2011.
The Office “Goodbye, Michael” 9:00 to 9:52 on NBC
To call Steve Carrell a TV star is a disservice. Patrick Dempsey is a TV star, Carrell is a TV legend. It takes the most skilled actor and comedian to take a character so void of sense and make him likable. Over the years Michael has given us many brilliant moments etched in the histories of TV. His swan song wont dissappoint, in the past when The Office has been called upon to make great TV, even recently it has, Jim and Pam’s wedding lived up to its anticipation. and the Michael’s proposal to Holly was classic. Tonight should be no different. Check back tomorrow for a recap and farewell!
Community “Applied Anthropoly and Culinary Arts” 8:00 on NBC
Shirley goes into labour during the Anthropology final exam. Don’t have a promo, so you’ll have to settle for a great clip from season one. Last Week’s flashback episode was so well done it’ll be hard to top it this week. And next week comes PAINTBALL!!!
The Vampire Diaries “The Last Day” 8:00 on CW
So Elijah and Klaus are brothers? and there is no Sun and the Moon Curse? Last week was chock full of revelations and really not much else – well American Idol Alum Lisa Tucker guest starring as a witch counts right? Tonight leads into the penultimate episode next week which is said to have a monumental and tragic loss of life. I am wroght with anxiety. Also Tyler Lockwood returns just in time for the full moon! PS – Can’t believe Aunt Jenna and Matt know!
The Big Bang Theory “The Agreement Dissection” 8:00 on CBS
Leonard has Priya take a look at the fabled roommate agreement while the girls take Sheldon dancing. Since the series began my favorite ongoing joke is The Roommate Agreement, so I’m happy to see it getting a little more screen time. Also Sheldon and Amy kiss!
Bones “The Pinocchio in the Planter” 9:00 on FOX
Bones and Booth find the body of a man who was a member of a “Radical Honesty” group, so the gang decides to try it out. Will probably be a lighter episode considering the assassin plot is coming back in the next few weeks.
Grey’s Anatomy “It’s a Long Way Back” 9:00 on ABC
The Seattle Grace gang works together to help Callie and her baby Sofia get through the painful healing process. Meanwhile a clinical trial patient dies making Derek worry more about Meredith. And Alex makes a stunnning move for Chief Resident.
Parks and Recreation “Jerry’s Painting” 9:52 – 10:30 on NBC
A painting of Jerry’s makes a splash at the art show Leslie organizes and Ben moves in with Andy and April and attempts to teach them to be adults. No promo, instead a clip of my favorite moment from last week’s episode Soulmates!
30 Rock “Everything Sunny All the Time Always” 10:30 on NBC
Moving to 10:30 to make room for extra juicy Office and Parks. Last week’s 100th episode was genius “Sharks don’t have claws. You don’t even know what a shark is anymore” Here’s a clip in lieu of a promo cause I don’t got one.
American Idol 8:00 on FOX – 1 of 6 goes home. Jacob I hope.
Rules of Engagement 8:30 on CBS – Meh to the max.
Call Me Fitz 9:00 on The 101 Network – Brandon Walsh’s new Canadian show.
Nikita 9:00 on CW – Has gotten pretty lame since Nikita teamed up with Shane West. And is STILL don’t buy Shane West as a bad-ass at all. Still lovin’ Maggie Q though.
CSI 9:00 on CBS – Former regular Louise Lombard returns as Detective Sophia Curtis as the hunt for Serial Killer Nate Haskell intensifies.
The Mentalist 10:00 on CBS – The man hired by Jane to investigate LaRoche turns up as a suspect in CBI’s investigation.
Private Practice 10:01 on ABC – Benjamin Bratt arrives soon!
Running Wilde 10:00 on FX – FX burns off the last 4 episodes of the failed Will Arnett/Keri Russell Sitcom.
The Secret Diary of a Call Girl 10:30 on SHO – Billie Piper is a long way from Rose Tyler.
