Thursday TV: Community, Missing, Behind the Music, Jersey Shore, March Madness
Mar 15 2012 07:57 am ET
Today March Madness gets into full swing, Community and Behind the Music return, ABC debuts the drama Missing and we check out of the Jersey Shore. Here's what's on TV Thursday
First up, the Internet can stop complaining because Community is back from its hiatus. Shirley and Andre are planning to tie the knot again, so the gang starts preparing for the wedding...perhaps overdoing it. The show reclaims its 8pm timeslot, shifting 30 Rock to 8:30pm. Parks and Recreation will be on hiatus until April, so now the Internet can start complaining again.
Taking over the 8pm timeslot on ABC is the new drama Missing. Ashley Judd stars as a former CIA operative whose son goes missing while he's in Italy. Mom heads to Rome to start her investigation. Will this be the drama that finally gives ABC some traction in the timeslot?
On cable, VH1's Behind the Music is back for an all-new season. Tonight's subject is Pitbull. Hmm, this show was more fun when there were rising from the ashes stories rather than profiling subject who are currently popular. Anyway, you can catch the premiere at 9pm.
Over on MTV at 10pm you can catch the fifth-season finale of Jersey Shore. Hurricane Irene is approaching Seaside Heights, but Mike tries to brew some storms of his own involving Deena's sister. The show will repeat at 11:30pm.
