Save Me - Season 1On TV this Thursday: Michael and Fiona Burn through 100 episodes, Wendell & Vinnie tangle with Phoebe Buffay, Betty White guides Save Me to its final resting place and the first Intervention of the last gets underway. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features, here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Hell’s Kitchen (Fox) | The contestants’ communication skills are put to the test during a three-entrée relay race. (Instead of batons, do they pass sticks of butter?)

8 pm The Big Bang Theory (CBS) | Repeat to Revisit: Highlights of this Valentine’s Day episode include Leonard’s promise not to propose to Penny anymore (no really, it’s sweet) and Raj’s victorious “Later, losers!” upon meeting Lucy.

8:30 pm Save Me (NBC) | Season finale: Beth gets so annoying that God — played by Betty White — has to step in and tell her to tone it down a scootch. (Not yet renewed… and not likely to be.)

8:30 pm Wendell & Vinnie (Nickelodeon) | Friends‘ Lisa Kudrow guest-stars as Vinnie’s rival in a battle for a strange celebrity’s stuff. Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!) also guest-stars.

9 pm Intervention (A&E) | Final season premiere: The last five episodes of the recently cancelled, disturbing unscripted series kick off with Jessica, a heroin addict in danger of losing her children.Burn Notice

9 pm Burn Notice (USA Network) | Star Jeffrey Donovan directed the winding-down drama’s 100th episode, in which Michael returns to Miami to track the sociopath trying to blow his cover — all while having to steer clear of Fiona, Sam and Jesse. In the meantime, flashbacks take us back to when Michael and Fi first met; cue brogues. (Note: A marathon of fan-favorite episodes airs 6-9 pm.)

9 pm Renovation Raiders (HGTV) | Amy and her crew scramble to help a wife give her restaurateur husband a chef’s kitchen in their home.

10 pm Hannibal (NBC) | After Georgia Madchen (guest star Ellen Muth, Dead Like Me) dies in an explosion, Will thinks the copycat killer is still alive. But Hannibal works overtime to convince Jack that Will is a murderer himself.

10 pm Graceland (USA Network) | Briggs and Mike seize an opportunity to mess with rival gangs; Mike learns that undercover life equals moral complications. Serinda Swan (Breakout Kings) joins the cast.

10 pm Sullivan & Son (TBS) | Season 2 premiere: Susan’s overachieving husband (played by Community‘s Ken Jeong) visits the bar and has an epiphany similar to Steve’s. (Watch a sneak preview.)

  • “flashbacks take us back to when Michael and Fi first met; cue brogues. (Note: A marathon of fan-favorite episodes airs 6-9 pm.)” didn’t they do a graphic novel that covered that period? is the show going to use the same material from the novel or retcon it?

  • Tonight’s finale of ‘Save Me’ is Episode 7. Doesn’t it have a 13-episode order. Does anyone know why NBC’s not airing the other six?

    • I’m wondering if its order was cut back like “The Goodwin Games”.

      • I am trying to confirm (what seems rather obvious). Please hold…. — Mgmt.

    • Probably because NBC doesn’t know how to treat any of its show’s decently!!!

    • I know, right? My family and I allowed ourselves , once AGAIN, to become hooked into a pretty darn funny sitcom and now they’ve yanked it, and will probably not renew it. I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but…….okay…annoyed then.

    • Are they doubling up on the episodes? That’s probably what’s going on.

  • Does anybody think that Wendell & Vinnie is a little too PG for Nickelodeon?

  • It’s too bad that NBC didn’t give Save Me an actual shot at succeeding. I’ve really enjoyed it. Between that and the cancellation of Go On…..well, I think (other than Grimm) I’m officially done with NBC now. I keep giving them second chances. Time to stop.

    • Yes….with the exception of Grimm, I am right there with you!

    • Save Me paired with Go On would have been fantastic!!!
      I don’t like NBC not giving new shows a legitimate chance ever since Freaks & Geeks.

  • Graceland! I watched the first episode last night and loved it.

  • Burn Notice – but I sure hope they don’t ruin this final season with too many episodes of the team split up. I hated when Fi was in jail and this looks similar. Why can’t we have great plots and fights and humor to take the show out at its glorious best?

  • Person of Interest is on tonight, too; why is POI so rarely mentioned in the watch list? It has been in the top 5 for months, and that is without much publicity. It is an incredible show, nothing else really like it on TV right now.

    Comment by Jo Vance – June 13, 2013 07:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s mentioned all the time……when it’s not a re-run.

  • I absolutely love Hannibal! The show plays like a movie what with the top-notch cinematography, excellent actors, and unique storylines. I sure hope this show stays on the air for a long time!
