Thursday TV: Glee, Real Housewives of Miami, Extreme Chef, America's Got Talent, TCM Silent Shorts
Sep 13 2012 09:33 am ET
Tonight's television offers an eclectic mix to choose from. Glee and the Real Housewives of Miami return, America's Got Talent and Extreme Chef announces its respective winners, and Turner Classic Movies jumps back 100 years. Here's what's on TV Thursday.
The big item on the schedule tonight is the season seven finale of America's Got Talent. Justin Bieber will stop by to do a guest performance. Then we will find out if sand artist Joe Castillo, harpist William Close, comedian Tom Cotter, dance crew The Untouchables, painters David Garibalidi and His CMYK's, or the dog act Olate Dogs wins the $1 million prize. The two-hour live show airs at 8pm on NBC.
Over on Fox, after night two of The X Factor auditions, Glee returns for its fourth season. Rachel is in New York doing her thing while the club back at McKinley tries to rebuild. Tonight's featured performance is the show's interpretation of "Call Me Maybe" – a song you may have heard once or twice this summer. The show begins at 9pm.
Bravo has decided to revive the Real Housewives of Miami despite its lackluster first season last year. The show features a new cast and will likely follow the formula of the other RHO series (Miami was originally shoehorned into the franchise). Will the rejiggering work? Find out during the 75-minute premiere at 9pm.
Later, Food Network will close out the second season of Extreme Chef. The final three contestants have traveled to Thailand to serve the perfect bite for a native tribe outside of a Buddhist temple. As you do. The $50,000 winner will be named at 10pm.
Finally, film nerds may want to tune in to TCM starting at 8pm. The network will release its archive of short silent films from the 1910s. Over a dozen shorts will air through the evening and offers a glimpse at some of the earliest motion pictures created (and preserved).
