New TV: Thursday

My Name Is Earl (7:00pm CST, NBC)

Season 2 was a little bit of a disappointment compared to the genius of the first, but, as long as they keep going the same direction they are at the moment, season 3 is looking up! There’s no Alyssa Milano in sight and Earl is back to the list which was always the best part of the show.

My rating: It’s Thursday – if I don’t watch TV from 7-9, I don’t know what to do with myself!

The Office (8:00pm CST, NBC)

I love Holly. Let me just make that clear right now. I think she makes an excellent foil to Michael because she’s just as awkward as Michael, but, where I feel sorry for Michael, I identify with Holly. Maybe that’s just me? Anyway, we’ve got some conflict in the Jim/Pam relationship (BUT YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!) because they’re at a distance now with her in New York for three months (though if that doesn’t work out in the end, there will definitely be a TV-shaped hole in my window).

My rating: Even if I didn’t love it, I’d need a way to pass the time before 30 Rock. 😉

ETA: OMG, NBC! TEST THE EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM AGAIN DURING THE LAST FIVE MINUTES OF THE OFFICE AND THERE WILL ALSO BE A TV-SHAPED HOLE IN MY WINDOW! D:

ETA2: Wow, ER has been on television for half my life.
