Tonight on the Tube: Smallville, Grey’s Repeats, Ugly Betty and Game 4 of the World Series

Smallville, Vol. 2: Metropolis MixSome interesting news from NBC regarding their Thursday night lineup as they have decided to put Scrubs and 30 Rock on after My Name Is Earl and The Office. This looks like an attempt to bring Must-See TV back. This new lineup will begin November 16th. I like the idea of the two-hour comedy block on Thursday night. I thought they should have put Scrubs on Thursday night last season but we had to endure the likes of Four Kings. I wonder how they will do up against Grey’s Anatomy and CSI. Hopefully this means there will be one less Deal or No Deal on each week. What do you think of the change NBC is making to Thursday night?
