:Sniff: I’m just not going to handle this well. It seems like Dr. Greene dying all over again. Seeing Neelah looking at the wall of the name tags of all those that had left nearly sent me over the edge as it was. I remember watching the series for the first time with my son being just a baby. I was sitting on the floor planning the menu for the week and figuring out my groceries. I haven’t missed many episodes since, despite the fact we now live in a different house with a different living room floor, and my son will now turn 16 in two weeks. Oh, how I have loved this show. Quite frankly Thursday night on NBC hasn’t been the same to me since Seinfeld, Cheers, and Friends left, and with ER gone … SIGH …

1. Regis and Kelly. Marge Helgenberger guests, as does those voted off of Dancing With the Stars this week, although I’m not sure whether it’s just the celebs, or the professionals as well. Syndicated, check local listings.

2. 3000 Miles to Graceland. I think guys planning on ripping off a Las Vegas casino by dressing as Elvis and blending in with an Elvis convention is a pretty clever plan, yet not quite as detailed as those with Ocean. 9:45 AM CT AMax East

3. The Heartbreak Kid. Ben Stiller is pretty funny in this movie that is very “Something About Mary-sh,” but the really surprisingly funny one is Jerry Stiller and how vulgar he can be to outwit his son. 1:00 PM CT Cinemax West

4. Survivor: Tocantains – The Brazilian Highlands. Yea! It’s back, and on Thursdays. “nuff said. 7:00 PM CT CBS

6. In the Motherhood. When Jane takes some time off to be with her baby, it feels more like work. Hmmm. Interesting concept. Rosemary wants to unionize Jane’s nanny, and Emily is also staying at home with the family, as her kids become upset with her husband. 7:00 PM CT ABC

7. Smallville. After failing to kill Davis, Tess turns to Clark, and reveals Davis’ childhood with the Luthors. Davis needs help from Chloe. 7:00 PM CT CW

8. Bones. The mutilated body of a doctor is found in a tiger cage after a hospital charity event, and it ends up being Cam’s ex-fiance. Angela struggles to stick to her vow of celibacy. 7:00 PM CT Fox

9. Samantha Who? When Sam feels the pangs of a ticking clock, she borrows Dena’s dog to see if the whole nurturing thing is for her. After Howard’s stepbrother dies and leaves him and Regina a plane in the will, she takes pilot lessons. Andrea is still dating basketball star Tony Dane. 7:30 PM CT ABC

10. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. A former student of Ray’s is murdered, taking the team’s investigation into the mysterious world of Mexican wrestling. 8:00 PM CT CBS

11. ER. ::Sniff:: “Old friends” show up to support Carter when he opens a new medical facility for the less fortunate in Chicago. Apparently his transplant worked out well. Gates treats a teen that played a drinking game and got alcohol poisoning, and the interns want Carter’s help with a woman going into labor with twins. SIGH. 8:00 PM CT NBC


12. Supernatural. Sam and Dean’s lives as demon hunters are depicted accurately in a Supernatural comic book series. They find the author who explains he created the comic books after seeing visions of them. 8:00 PM CT CW

15. Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches. It’s on to the islands of Turks and Caicos tonight for Bridget. 9:00 PM CT Travel Channel


16. The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. I remember when Cheers ended the entire cast was in Boston with Jay. Is there a reason why we can’t all be in Chicago tonight for the end of ER? Instead, his guests are Ben Affleck and Taylor Swift. 10:35 PM CT NBC
