TV picks: Thursday, April 12

Gillian Jacobs stars as weirdo-magnet Britta on "Community."

COMEDY. Britta tries to avoid her ex, who happens to show up in town at the same time as the traveling circus — because he’s a circus performer. The first freak joke at his expense is a gimme.
8 p.m., NBC
“Grey’s Anatomy”
DRAMA. Christina wants Owen to spill all of the gory details about his affair. As if “I cheated on you” wasn’t already painful enough?
9 p.m., ABC
COMEDY. Like a bizarro world Raylan Givens, U.S. Marshal Chris Monsanto (Chris Elliott) solves the crimes other law enforcement officers can’t (or won’t) — like finding the kidnapped King of the Hobos and taking down a scat-signing mob boss.
Season premiere, 11:59 p.m., Cartoon Network
DRAMA. The revelation of a D.C. madam’s high-profile client list puts the scandal in, well, “Scandal” tonight.
10:01 p.m., ABC

“American Idol”
REALITY. Host Ryan Seacrest’s painfully dramatic delivery of the losing contestant’s name will once again stop the hearts of the singers with the lowest vote totals. Do you think he’s required by law to know CPR?
8 p.m., Fox
