TV Watch List: Thursday, January 9
Metro’s Thursday night TV breakdown.
COMPETITION. It’s like “Top Chef,” except without Padma on set to provide the eye candy. This cooking competition, which pits professional chefs against home cooks and more, is judged most notably by Anthony Bourdain. In the first challenge, the chefs/cooks prepare a dish that reminds them of home.
8 p.m., ABC
REALITY. The ladies’ ill-fated vacation to Las Vegas ends with a group trip to a strip club. A strip club in Las Vegas *might* be the one place in the world where these women are not the most inappropriately dressed people in the room.
10 p.m., VH1
‘Parks and Recreation’
COMEDY. It’s the 100th episode of “Parks and Rec!” To celebrate, Leslie finds herself embroiled in a sex scandal with another local politician and Andy returns from London so jet-lagged he’s dopier — and funnier — than ever. So obviously April has to spray him with a hose to snap him out of it.
8:30 p.m., NBC
