Tonight on the Tube: The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, Men in Trees and the Miniature Killer

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation The Board GameJoss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame directs tonight’s The Office episode while Grey’s Anatomy continues its three-show story arc and the Miniature Killer is still on the loose in Vegas. The O.C. plays its last episode before the final episode, which airs next week. This has been a really good season for that show, too bad so many people lost interest in it over the last couple of seasons and, of course, that it was scheduled up against a couple of 800 lb. ratings gorillas.
