The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Thursday

On TV this Thursday: Valentine’s Day at 30 Rock and Seattle Grace could not be more different, girls get wild at a Secret Circle slumber party, the Swamp People return and more. As but a supplement to TVLine’s original features, we’ve picked nine programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm 30 Rock (NBC) | Double episode! Jack entertains his mother-in-law (guest star Mary Steenburgen, Bored to Death); Tracy and Frank try to help Lutz find someone to spend Valentine’s with; Criss and Liz can’t celebrate until they buy a table.

8:30 pm Rob (CBS) | Rob asks Hector to teach him Spanish – in secret – so he can understand what Maggie’s family is saying about him. Let’s hope this turns out better than it did for Elaine Benes and her Korean manicurists.
