Can you believe that Survivor enters its 19th cycle tonight? Castaways are sent to the South Pacific nation island of Samoa and the drama starts immediately when they’re divided into two tribes—Galu and Foa Foa—and each must choose their chief without speaking!

But, Must See TV is back on track tonight with the returns of Parks and Recreation and The Office plus the premiere of Community starring The Soup’s Joel McHale. On Parks and Recreation, Leslie (played by our favorite funny woman Amy Poehler) tries to drum up publicity for the Pawnee zoo throwing a wedding for two penguins—except big oops—the penguins she chooses are both male! And last season, The Office ended with news that a baby was possibly on the way for the super couple Pam and Jim. Tonight we find out if they’re expecting—while Michael tries to fit in with the staff by looking for a rumor to spread. Maybe the baby news is it? But we’re interested to find out if Joel McHale’s dry wit and dark humor that make The Soup so great translates in his new scripted comedy Community.

Of course Thursday nights aren’t complete without new episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Project Runway. The drama in Atlanta tonight goes down when Kandi encourages Kim to jump back into the Atlanta music scene and Sheree’s personal trainer tries to pump up her love life!

But some real cat-fights could go down during the return of VH1’s Divas concert!  Paula Abdul hosts (her first public gig since leaving American Idol) and divas like Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis and Miley Cyrus are belting out the tunes!
