9 pm Grey’s Anatomy (ABC) | Meredith frets about her baby’s well-being (i.e. number of fingers, toes, heads…) and Callie and Arizona try to get their groove back. (Watch preview videos and get an April/Jackson update.)

9 pm Beauty and the Beast (The CW) | The afterglow fades when Cat has to deal with someone framing her beastly beau. Meanwhile, Tess follows a tip that will forever change her relationship with Cat.

  • With March Madness taking away my Thurs night CBS shows – big fat nothing.
    Probably rent a movie or some DVR/On Demand catch up.

  • Beauty and the Beast!!!!! I hope that means that Tess finds out about Vincent and that her + Cat can get back to being best friends again. I don’t want Tess siding with Joe.

    • If Vincent was smart he’d lay low until this task force is shut down.

      • lol agreed. But if we know anything about Vincent its that he’s not always super smart in regards to his own safety. I think part of him wants to get caught, to have all this out in the open

  • What the heck with no Office and Parks this week? I’m really disappointed in every network but especially NBC and ABC because this fall every show pretty much aired without breaks and I was like “TV’s getting a little better guys” and KNOPE.

  • Also I don’t care what you people watch live and watch on your DVR
    “Scandal, Grey’s and I’m going to DVR an episode of What Not to Wear from February 6th”
    Cool guys.

  • Community and Archer. It really surprises me that there any new shows tonight. I know not everyone watches March Madness. But shows like Community need all the viewers they can get.

  • Vampire Diaries, Community… And I guess that’s it. I hate that Parks and Rec finally came back with a new episode last week, and now it’s not on tonight. I get that it’s March Madness… but I don’t watch sports and I want more Parks and Rec! Ha ha.
