On TV this Thursday: Kiefer Sutherland Touches you one last time this season, the National Spelling Bee crowns a gnu champ, TBS’ Men have the wrong kind of threesome and more. Here are seven programs to consider.
8 pm Touch (Fox) | Two-hour Season 1 finale: As the Aster Corporation increases their interest in Jake, Martin joins forces with Abigail (The Shield‘s Catherine Dent) when the stakes of Jake’s custody escalate. When Martin learns that Jake is connected to Amelia, a presumed-dead girl with similar characteristics as his son, he sets out on a mission to uncover the truth. Maria Bello (ER) joins the cast as Amelia’s mother, while Cougar Town‘s Ian Gomez guest-stars. (And yes, it’s renewed — albeit in a new time slot.)
8 pm Breaking Pointe (The CW) | This new unscripted series offers a look inside the elite Salt Lake City Ballet Company, Ballet West.
8 pm Duets (ABC) | “Classic duets” is the theme for Week 2, so I had better get my “Islands in the Stream.”
8 pm The 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee (ESPN) | Don’t be contumacious — tune in! Plus, watch for a “celebri-bee” within the bee, bee-tween Modern Family Mensa member Nolan Gould and The Middle moppet Atticus Shaffer.
9 pm Game of Thrones (HBO) | Get ready for Sunday’s season finale by enjoying an encore of the most recent hour, featuring the Blackwater battle spectacular. (By the way, I’d love to see those spelling bee kids take a crack at this show’s character list. Suddenly, cymotrichous is looking like a cake walk.)
10 pm Rookie Blue (ABC) | While tracking down a police car stolen by students as a prank, Andy and Swarek pick up the trail of a teen who robbed and assaulted a local criminal.
10 pm Men at Work (TBS) | Things become awkward between Milo (Danny Masterson) and Gibbs (James Lesure) after they engage in a “Devil’s Threesome” (aka two guys, one girl) with a woman they meet in a bar (guest star Stacy Keibler). As that wise sage Barney Stinson once noted, “Thou shall not make eye contact during a Devil’s Threesome.”
