What to Watch, 10-24-12
T: The usual Wednesday. Which is a good thing.
ABC is the place to be. Start the night off with The Middle. Halloween themed ep. And it is completely Axl/Sue/Brick concentric which is when this sleeper hit fires on all cylinders. Go make popcorn at 8:30 and sit down again for Modern Family. They’ve gone very Rosanne with their focus on a Halloween ep. Claire is at it again this year. Just give me Luke and Phil and I’m happy. Next up is Suburgatory. Dallas and Dahlia are two of the funniest characters on TV. So glad the show is back and is doing well. Round out your ABC evening with Nashville. Totally soapy. Totally fun. Good music. 8p, 9p-11p.
Survivor is new on CBS. I have to say, I’ve enjoyed the show more this season than in a long time. Good job on casting the season, CBS. It’s not too late to get into it. 8p.
Late Night Round Up: Busy night. Obama is on The Tonight Show (no doubt shutting LA freeways down again—but that’s OK, Barry, I forgive you! WIN!). No Doubt also is performing. I’m a little over them and a little not.
Late Show with David Letterman has Bill O’Rilley on. Now, before you judge, I’ve always hated the dude. But he was on Katie the other day and was surprisingly centrist. Very surprisingly. And I can’t wait to read his book on the JFK assassination. Snooki is there too. Snooze.
Ana Gasteyer is on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Legendary on SNL, awesome as can be on Suburgatory. She’ll be great with Jimmy.
Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson has the always awesome Susan Sarandon. She’s one of the classiest actresses out there. If you’ve never seen Dead Man Walking, you’re a dumbass.
One of my faves, Chris D’Elia, is on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. You might know him from the horrible Whitney (on which he is about the only good thing). Check out his ep of Workaholics where he played a pedophile. It was insanely funny and he was insanely awesome. 11:35p, 12a, 12:35p—NBC, CBS, ABC
Daytime bonus: The divine Madeleine Stowe is on Katie. She plays the shit out of Victoria on Revenge. Love this woman. Check local listings.
