Just a quick update, since I'm still on hiatus.
No longer on hiatus is "Fringe" (Fox, 9 p.m.), which returns after a long layoff following a new "Bones" at 8 p.m.
When we last left "Fringe," Olivia (Anna Torv) had just learned the shocking secret about Peter (Josh Jackson) -- that he is the Peter of the other Earth. How will that affect their relationship, as well as her relationship with Walter (John Noble)? That remains to be seen, but the whole truth about Peter has led to two of the best episodes of this series.
Tonight, we explore through flashbacks some of Walter's earlier work and his life with Peter's mother. Several episodes from now, we are supposedly getting a musical episode of "Fringe" that's supposed to be a trippy look at how Walter sees the world.
R.I.P. DAVID MILLS -- The writer died on the set of his new New Orleans-based series "Treme," co-created with David Simon. Mills was 48 and died from an apparent brain anyeurism on Tuesday.
Mills was a terrific writer, contributing to some of the best shows ever made on TV: "Homicide," "NYPD Blue," "ER" and of course, "The Wire." He won an Emmy for the miniseries "The Corner."
THURSDAY'S BEST BETS: CBS has been showing reruns for the past couple of weeks in part because of the NCAA basketball tournament, but tonight is all-new. According to TVGuide.com, "The Mentalist" and "CSI" are flip-flopped at the 9-11 p.m. hours following a new "Survivor."
On "Supernatural" (CW, 9 p.m.), Sam and Dean are shot to death and go to heaven. A wild guess, though, since this isn't the series finale, is that their condition isn't permanent. It follows a new "Vampire Diaries."
ABC is all-new with "FlashForward," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice."
NBC is showing two hour-long reruns of "The Office," followed by a new "Marriage Ref" at 10 p.m. with Jimmy Fallon, Sheryl Crow and Kirstey Alley.
