Modern Family, ABC @ 9 PM – My favorite show of last season returns! Love this cast, love these characters. Can’t wait to see what shenanigans they’re up to now!
Is this even worth a post?! My Wednesdays are ridiculously light. Which, frankly, I love.
- Undercovers, NBC @ 8 PM – More like under-whelmed, which is how the pilot of this show left me. On paper it’s a show tailor-made for me but, when JJ Abrams is listed as a creator and he directs the episode, it has some high bars to reach. Sadly, it never makes it. That doesn’t mean it’s not a perfectly fine show, it’s just lacking the extra “oomph” that’ll keep me watching. That said, it’s the only show I’ve got down for its time-slot so I’ll probably give it a few more episodes to change my mind.
- Top Chef: Just Desserts, BRAVO @ 10 PM (Usually 9 PM) – Technically this started last week but that first episode and tonight’s episode will repeat next week so I think it still fits in this section. I enjoyed the first episode and I like the idea of seeing how making desserts can differ drastically from cooking a meal. As pointed out by one of the chefs last week, you can’t tell how your dessert how tastes until it’s done so it’s hard to recover if you screw up. I think that adds an exciting twist to the typical Top Chef formula.
- The Defenders, CBS @ 10 PM – I had no intention of watching this show and it’s still not on my written schedule. But it got such good buzz from the Paley preview that I’ve decided to sample it tonight. Sounds like it could be fun and I do love Jerry O’Connell. If I can sit through a couple episodes of Do Not Disturb just to see him, I can sit through anything!
