Burn NoticeOn TV this Thursday: Burn Notice receives its burn notice, Graceland and Rookie Blue cop out for the season, CBS previews its fall line-up and Ricky Gervais’ Derek hits Netflix. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm The Million Second Quiz (NBC) | On Night 4 of this Ryan Seacreast-hosted interactive marathon game show, the contestants discover they really have to use the restroom.

8:25 pm Thursday Night Football (NFLN) | Can Mr. Gisele Bündchen and the New England Patriots reroute the New York Jets? Tune in to find out.

9 pm Wipeout (ABC) | Special time: If you’ve seen the first two editions of the series’ “Hotties vs. Nerds,” you know what to expect in this third battle: a subtle meditation on the expectations society places on its most beautiful and intelligent members. Just kidding, it’s hotties and nerds being bounced around on contraptions like the “Octopushy.”

9 pm Burn Notice (USA Network) | Series finale: After seven seasons of chasing bad guys and facing his CIA demons, Michael Westen must repair some burned bridges before he can (hopefully!) ride off into the sunset. (Whether he does so in his 1973 Dodge Charger or in a hearse remains to be seen.) Get scoop and find out why star Bruce Campbell says “nothing can prepare” fans for the show’s final hour.

9:30 pm Anger Management (FX) | Charlie and his dad each try to stop a woman from having sex with someone.

10 pm Graceland (USA Network) | Season finale: The housemates must unite to save one of their own from a sadistic killer. Wow, Big Brother is getting real. (Yep, renewed!)

10 pm Impractical Jokers (truTV) | The comedic series plays around with Q’s resemblance to former View host Rosie O’Donnell when she surprises him during a bogus presentation about cloning.

  • The Million Second Quiz and the season finale of Rookie Blue.

  • Kinda perplexed about the results of the current “who won’t survive Burn Notice” poll, especially given the amount of spoilers floating about the character currently leading it. I don’t think she dies.

    • I don’t think she dies either. It’ll be either Michael or Maddie. The previews were too obvious in leading on and making people believe Fi will bite the bullet.

      • Some dumb website leaked a picture showing the result of that cliffhanger scene from last week as their “preview” of LAST WEEK’S episode (ROFL), so I’m pretty sure I know whats going to happen at the beginning of the finale.

    • God, I hope it will be Fiona! She has always been the worst character. Yes, even worse than Jesse.

      • Why? Because she’s a woman who can take care of herself?

        Comment by John – September 12, 2013 07:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • No because she completely abandoned Michael and immediately “fell in love” with and shacked up with someone new. In fact every time Michael does something she doesn’t like she immediately finds someone new. I have a hard time much of her after that.

          • Plus, Fi is a danger junky. She won’t ever be happy living a normal life. She wants danger, and she has a tendency to do or want to do bad things. Without Michael to save her bacon and reign in her demons, she would already be on death row or would have been tortured by the CIA and then shot for doing something really bad for really bad people.

    • Hoping its Maddie—Sharon Gless is so freaking annoying on this show, I’ve been praying for her character’s death for years. Its a shame, because she was awesome in her Nip/Tuck arc.

      They cant kill Sam or Jesse because that would end any chance of an (AWESOME) spinoff.

  • Everyone on burn notice should die except Sam and Jessie. And on Graceland, Charlie better die. She’s too stupid to live

  • I’ll be watching Burn Notice. I’m sad that it’s all ending tonight and worried about who might not survive.
