What to Watch: Breaking Pointe Bows Out, Rookie Blue Loses It, Jenna's Awkward Mission and More

On TV this Thursday: The curtain comes down on Breaking Pointe, mom’s the word on Rookie Blue, Saving Hope‘s Alex plays the hands she is dealt, and holiday leftovers — e.g. marathon showings of Suits and The Kennedys — are even better the day after. Here are nine programs to check out tonight.

6 am — 7 pm Suits (USA Network) | White Collar’s Neal Caffrey isn’t the only dashingly dressed fella on this cable net. See for yourself in this marathon of all of Season 1 and the latest Season 2 episodes. (Speaking of which, have you voted for your favorite dapper TV Bad Boy?)

9 am — 4:30 pm The Kennedys (Reelz) | If you missed the embattled eight-part miniseries when it first aired, here’s your chance to catch up on this chronicle of American political dynasty. The cast includes Greg Kinnear as Jack, Katie Holmes (wow, remember her?) as Jackie, Tom Wilkinson as Joe Sr. and Barry Pepper in the Emmy-winning role of Bobby. (The entire miniseries runs again at 6 pm; that’s a lot of Camelot.)

8 pm Breaking Pointe (CW) | Season finale: Even though opening night (including Rex’s terrible tumble) just happened, the end of the ballet season is now nearly upon the dancers of Ballet West. Tensions run high when Chris wants to know what Christiana has planned for her life after ballet, and Rex and Allison have a showdown. As cast member Allison DeBona teases to TVLine in an exclusive Tweet, “After this episode, all the girls in love with Rex might be happy (smiley emoticon).”

9:30 pm Anger Management (FX) | In Episode 3 of the record-breaking ratings-grabber, Charlie challenges the group to go without sleep for 36 hours in order to lower their inhibitions — but doesn’t quite get the results he’d hoped for.

10 pm Rookie Blue (ABC) | When Andy answers a domestic disturbance call, the social worker on the scene is her estranged mother. Elsewhere, a stash of guns recovered by Detective Barber somehow turns up on the streets.

10 pm Kathy (Bravo) | Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel joins Kathy Griffin as she wraps Season 1 of her chatfest.

10:30 pm Louie (FX) | Louie has dinner at a friend’s house, where things both funny and awkward presumably will occur.

10:30 pm Awkward (MTV) | Jenna’s relationship status with Jake is cause for joy — until she finds out there’s a hidden camera in the sanctuary that recorded her reveling in her new love. Eep! Naturally, she’s got to destroy that tape….

    what about Burn notice????????

  11. Can I just say that I find it horribly hypocritical that you put Breaking Pointe on here but Dance Moms is considered awful tacky reality tv? It’s the same show the only difference is the age of the people in it and before anybody snarks about that being enough of a difference how do you think those Ballerinas got to be where they are? Do you think they skipped happily to a nurturing twice a week rehearsal where a warm loving coach told them it was ok to not be the best just as long as you have fun? No way in hell. They probably practiced every day of their young lives with someone standing over them pointing out that there are millions of ballerinas in the world and not that many jobs. That is ground into them from an early age so that they are always striving for excellence and that is what everyone says is “abusive” on Dance Moms. So basically you’re saying that it’s ok to watch them once their grown up but watching the grueling work they have to do to get that good is offensive. It’s ridiculous. I laughed so hard I almost fell on the floor when watching the first episode of Breaking Pointe because in the first 15 minutes the director of the company said everything that Abby tells the girls in Dance Moms and everyone whines and complains about how horrible she is for saying those things. Now there is concrete evidence that she is right because a professional dance company is saying the EXACT SAME THING and everyone is totally ok with it.
