TV Watch List: Thursday, Feb. 9
REALITY. It’s another season of alligator hunting in the Atchafalaya — that’s men hunting gators, not the other way around — though sometimes we do wonder if these “swampers” aren’t their own bait.
Season premiere, 9 p.m., History
‘The Vampire Diaries’
DRAMA. Klaus throws a classy bash at his new Mystic Falls mansion, where things turn bloody, but surprisingly not by the vengeful hybrid vampire/werewolf’s hand, for a change.
8 p.m., The CW
COMEDY. Dwight heads to Sabre HQ to head a “special project,” which sounds like a disaster in the making. At least Pam’s back from maternity leave!
9 p.m., NBC
COMEDY. Steve Carell talks about his comedic timing — like leaving “The Office” before Dwight got assigned to any “special projects” at HQ.
11 p.m., Showtime
REALITY. The couple that does face-plants on giant balls together stays together — or at least has a shot at the $50,000 prize — in this Valentine’s Day-themed episode.
8 p.m., ABC
