The Thursday Playlist: Valerie's Story, Jake G on Actors Studio

Valerie Harper

This is the calm before the new-season storm. A week from now, only the most advanced devices will be able to handle the crush of new (and mostly returning-hit) programming airing on Thursdays, with expanded season openers of long-running faves The Big Bang Theory, Parks and Recreation and Grey's Anatomy among the draws.

By comparison, this is a much quieter Thursday, although NBC once had high hopes that the two-hour climax of the seemingly endless and haplessly muddled Million Second Quiz (8/7c) would be something to shout, instead of yawn, about. Instead, the peacock's more anticipated headliner is Valerie's Story — A Meredith Vieira Special (10/9c), an hour-long good-news report from the former Today co-anchor chronicling Valerie Harper's unusually public battle against terminal brain cancer. read more

The Thursday Playlist: Burn Notice and Other Finales, Derek on Netflix

Ricky Gervais

Fans often feel burned when the final curtain falls on a favorite show — especially when it happens unexpectedly and without resolution (just ask fans of A&E's The Glades or, even more recently, AMC's The Killing, which at least solved its third-season case before the grim fadeout). This is not the situation with USA's Burn Notice, which has been leading all summer to a calculated big finish (Thursday, 9/8c) after seven seasons of... read more

NBC Remains Bullish on Million Second Quiz

Ryan Seacrest

The clock hasn't run out yet on NBC's late summer live game show experiment Million Second Quiz. Beyond some early technical hiccups and mild ratings, Peacock network execs remain enthusiastic for the show.

Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment president of alternative and late night programming, admits to TV Guide Magazine that the show's ratings have so far been softer than he would have liked, but that he still is banking on audience growth by the end of the show's 10-day run.
