(a look at what PTR is watching tonight)
BEST NEWS OF THE NIGHT:
Scrubs (9 p.m. NBC) - "My Mirror Image." TV's best comedy finally returns along with NBC's Thursday night comedy block. In the sixth season opener, JD (Zach Braff) is still reeling from the news that he is going to be a father. Meanwhile, Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) -- while readying himself for baby number two -- realizes that his constant anger may have future repercussions. Elsewhere, Turk (Donald Faison) and Carla (Judy Reyes) prepare for the arrival of their little one, while Elliot (Sarah Chalke) laments that she is the only one in the hospital not having a baby! The Blue Man Group guest stars.
My Name is Earl (NBC 8 p.m.) - "Born a Gamblin' Man." Number 146 on his list has Earl (Jason Lee) making 247 bologna sandwiches to make up for all the ones he stole from Kenny (guest star Gregg Binkley) in fifth and sixth grade. While delivering the sandwiches, Earl is struck by Kenny's obvious lack of machismo which then inspires Earl to take on a new mission -- to make Kenny a real man. While showing Kenny how to gamble like "real men," Earl discovers that his newfound karma is useful but soon finds it difficult to stop once hes on a roll.
Men in Trees (10 p.m. ABC) - "New York Fiction Part I." This show moves to its new night and time with a 2-parter. Emotions between Marin and Jack escalate when Marin goes home to New York during Thanksgiving week, where Jane has arranged for her to meet with various editors about publishing her new book. She is thrilled to be back in familiar surroundings but misses her life back in Elmo, particularly Jack. Meanwhile, Patrick must choose between spending Thanksgiving with Annie in New York or with his new family, and Ben hopes Theresa will help in the preparation of their annual Orphan Thanksgiving for Elmoians.
And a piece of good news today for fans of Veronica Mars. The show's conclusion to its first mystery of the season brought in big ratings for the little show that could. The episode, "Spit & Eggs," was watched by the second largest audience in the show's history according to a network press release. Even more impressive, the episode had the best 18-34 and 18-49 numbers ever! Let's hope the trend continues when the show returns next year.
