What to Watch Thursday: Rookie Blue Wraps, the Video Music Awards, Glee Re-Graduates and More

On TV this Thursday: Rookie Blue sends another season to the slammer, Project Runway takes it to the streets, a Glee-peat primes you for the Season 4 premiere and MTV passes out many Moonmen. Here are seven programs to keep on your radar tonight.

8 pm 2012 MTV Video Music Awards (MTV) | Comedian Kevin Hart – Modern Family fans will recognize him as the friend who convinced Phil to buy a two-seater – hosts the live, annual festival of fabulousness. Nicki Minaj, Frank Ocean, Pink, Rihanna and Taylor Swift are slated to perform.

9 pm Rookie Blue (ABC) | Season 3 finale: During a hospital visit, a violent pedophile escapes and abducts a girl. Andy must make a big-time decision and Chris ponders a transfer. The rookies definitely will be back – ABC renewed the series earlier this year.

9 pm Glee (Fox) Finchel’s farewell! Burt’s “Single Ladies” dance! There’s plenty to enjoy in this graduation-themed Repeat to Revisit – the Season 3 finale – which shows just how far the New Directions kids have come since the pilot and where they’re headed in Season 4 (which debuts a week from tonight in its new time slot).

9 pm Project Runway (Lifetime) | The designers sell handmade goods on the street – and the money they earn is the amount they’ll have to spend on fabric for a fall-look challenge. No pressure! The sartorially savvy Anna Sui guest-judges.

9 pm The Next (The CW) | While in Chicago, the mentors work with their local contestants. Just because it sounds kinda awkward, I’m looking forward to the scene in which Joe Jonas learns about women’s shoes from his contestant, Julian.

10 pm The Real L Word (Showtime) | Season 3 comes to a close with Whitney and Sara prepping for their wedding, Romi and Dusty getting closer and Lauren testing her relationship with Kiyomi.
