<html>
 <head>
 <script type="text/javascript">
 document.getElementById('TD_ROW_ID').innerHTML = Date();
 </script>
 </head>
 <body>
 <table>
 <tr><td id="TD_ROW_ID"></td></tr>
 </table>
 </body>
 </html>

This should be what you are looking for:

var d = new Date();
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = d.toDateString();

Here is a full tutorial on how to work with dates:

Here you go:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<p id="demo"></p>

<script>var date = new Date();
var options = {
    weekday: "long", year: "numeric", month: "long",
    day: "numeric", hour: "2-digit", minute: "2-digit"
};

document.write(date.toLocaleTimeString("en-us", options));
</script>

</body>
</html>

It's not referenced anywhere I should have stripped it out.

The only parts you need are:

<script>
var options = {
    weekday: "long", year: "numeric", month: "long",
    day: "numeric"
};
var d = new Date();
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = d.toLocaleDateString("en-us", options);
</script>

test page : http://jsfiddle.net/b9qoosot/

window.onload = function() {
    var d = new Date();
    var days = [ "Sunday", "Monday" ]; // and so on
    var months = [ "January", "February", "March","April","May","June", "July","August","September", "October", "November","December"];
    // Monday 08 September 2014
    document.getElementById('TD_ROW_ID').innerHTML =  days[ d.getDay() ] + " " + d.getDate() + " " + months[ d.getMonth() ] + " " + d.getYear();
}

@becraig

toLocaleDateString("en-us", options);

is very cool, just note that the options are not supported by IE10 and lower and Safari.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Date/toLocaleDateString

Also be aware that w3schools is considered to be a very poor resource

Lastly note that you need to wrap your setting of innerHTML in a window.onload or move the script to after when the cell is defined
