As we head to the finish line for the season, more renewals are rolling in. CW has given golden tickets to ‘Vampire Diaries’, ‘Supernatural’, and ‘90210’, while HBO has tapped both ‘Veep’ and ‘Girls’ for second seasons.
Not a bad cold open this time. Dwight drinking the protein powder straight was amazing, and I loved the thigh curl contest. The card — “Sleep Over Party, We Gossiped all Night” — was cute, but Gabe’s “Flex them all night at the discotheque” line took the cake!
