I love Wednesdays because it’s a neutral day—not the dreadful beginning to the week, and not quite as exciting as the weekend, but it holds a promise of a few more sleeps until freedom from work! The other thing about Wednesdays that’s so awesome is that it’s filled with fabulous TV—so let’s cut the gabbing and see what you should be watching.
Criminal Minds had me on the edge of my seat last week! Those limbs showing up were nasty—but the woman who just wanted to replace her dead child made me feel sorry for her. Well, I would have felt sorry for her if she wasn’t an accomplice in murder and all. The other thing about the episode that really made me sad was watching Reid deal with the dreams of Maive—so heartbreaking. I hope he can move past his grief soon, because he’s causing my tissue usage to go up.
On tonight’s episode, “Nanny Dearest,” the BAU travels to Los Angeles looking for an UnSub who is kidnapping nannies and the children they care for on the same day each year.
To watch the team hopefully kick some UnSub ass, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching The Voice, CSI, Family Tools, and Law & Order: SVU.

I’m excited because one of my family’s favorite crazy rednecks is back on TV tonight, with the third season premiere of Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy. Larry travels around the country, going from place to place to show America’s history and what makes our country great and unique. He went “naked” in Times Square, searched for Bigfoot, and more during the first two seasons. I can’t wait to see what he gets up to this season!
On tonight’s episode, “Larry Herds Dinosaurs,” Larry takes a treacherous trip through Arizona to find out why folks choose to live in this sun-scorched state. His first creepy-crawly encounter is with a family that uses this desert landscape as a natural resource for their spider venom business. The critters then get much larger as he visits a big character and his big birds at the Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch. Larry’s last stop is at the final resting place for some even bigger birds: the Air Force Boneyard, where the heroic jet planes of yore are both preserved and picked apart.
See how Larry gets along with the ostriches tonight on History Channel at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Family Tools, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Law & Order: SVU, How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), Chicago Fire, CSI, & Psych.
Last week, The Middle was really good. It was great to see Brick and Axl be brothers having fun together and not just the usual fighting. Meanwhile, Frankie worried about losing Sue as she saw her hanging out with friends and realized she wasn’t her best friend anymore; and Mike was trying to do the opposite—to get away from his father-in-law, who wanted to start a Tuesdays with Morrie tradition.
The Middle is great at mixing heart and humor. I really enjoyed seeing Axl and Brick making their James Bond videos with the animals—it reminded me of the stuff I used to do with my own brothers growing up. At the same time Brick had his sudden realization that Axl wasn’t going to be around after he leaves for college, I realized that this might mean Axl wouldn’t be on the show next season (should it get another season). With just two episodes left this season, I’m really hoping this is not the last we’ll see of the hilarious Heck family.
On tonight’s episode, “Hallelujah Hoedown,” Sue keeps failing her driving test while her friends all pass, so she seeks advice on how to stop resenting them. Elsewhere, Frankie drops hints about what she wants for Mother’s Day; and Cassidy delivers some bad news to Axl at the prom.
Find out what news Axl receives tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, Family Tools, Modern Family, How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), Nashville, Arrow, Supernatural, MythBusters, The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius, and Psych.
Last week, the final stretch of new Modern Family episodes started with a very strong A-story (Phil vs. Gil), but was weaker in the other stories. (Although Jenny thought Manny writing for Jay was hysterical, especially when Gloria started critiquing his work! And Lily is a spoiled brat sometimes, isn’t she?) Still, Modern Family is high on my list because it’s always got some funny story in an episode!
On tonight’s episode, “My Hero,” Mitch’s ex-boyfriend, Teddy, invites the whole family to a fundraising event at the local roller rink, and they all run circles around each other as Cam tries to play it cool around Teddy, while Claire avoids talking to Jay about inheriting his closet business and Phil teaches Gloria how to skate in spectacular fashion. Meanwhile, Haley helps Alex talk to some cute boys, and amidst all the chaos, Manny and Luke try to figure out whom they’ll pick in their family for their “My Hero” essay assignment.
See who they pick on ABC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching American Idol, Arrow, and The Voice.
