On TV this Thursday: Burn Notice spies a deadly mission, CBS has 3 ladies it would like you to meet and Kathy Griffin is back where she belongs. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features, linked within, here are nine programs to look out for tonight.
8 pm Code: 9 (Disney Channel) | Premiere: In this unscripted series, kids and their parents plan an elaborate prank on another family member – with the help of a Hollywood special effects and design team. Why “Code: 9?” It’s the signal that indicates the start of the practical joke.
8 pm The Big Bang Theory (CBS) | This Repeat to Revisit highlights Emmy nominee Mayim Bialik, as Amy Farrah Fowler resorts to a sad, sad harp solo after being left out of Bernadette’s wedding dress shopping trip.
9 pm Burn Notice (USA Network) | Michael gets a lead on Anson, while an MI-6 agent tries to put a snag in Fiona’s plans to be a free woman. But most importantly, someone will not survive this episode, which USA touts as a “can’t-miss game-changer.” Theories on who buys the farm? Hit comments! (Oh, and Lost’s William Mapother guest-stars.)
9 pm Saving Hope (NBC) | Who will decide Charlie’s fate? Alex, the current love of his hanging-in-the-balance life, or Dawn, his ex? (Such is the “ultimate challenge” series star Erica Durance warned us was coming.)
10 pm Rock Center With Brian Williams (NBC) | The news journal leads up to the Summer Olympics with several on-topic pieces, including a sneak preview of the opening ceremonies with ringmaster Danny Boyle and a sit-down with “Olympic Fanfare” composer John Williams.
10 pm Kathy Griffin: Seaman First Class (Bravo) | The ribald redhead skewers Cher, Anderson Cooper and the Westboro Baptist Church in her newest stand-up special.
10 pm Suits (USA Network) | Personal history forces Harvey and Mike to take an unorthodox case they normally wouldn’t, while Jessica runs into an unexpected roadblock while defending the firm against a lawsuit.
