Doesn’t Palicki look insane up there? I was really looking forward for the opportunity to see the equally talented and beautiful Adrianne Palicki (Tyra Collette on Friday Night Lights) on a weekly series last fall, then Lone Star came and went with not a whisper but a loud astounding ratings failure. Well she’s back on the tube tonight and I couldn’t be happier. Also scheduling snafus and press conferences made it so that only Cougar Town is new on ABC tonight, I guess it could be worse, it could be yesterday again. Here are our recommendations for tonight, Wednesday January 26, 2011.
Criminal Minds “The Thriteenth Step” 9:00 on CBS
This is two weeks in a row that Criminal Minds is featured in the best section, last week it was a Dr. Reid centric episode that I actually enjoyed quite a bit, and this week it’s Criminal Minds turn to rip off Natural Born Killers (which is kinda Bonnie and Clyde anyway right?) with Adrianna Palicki and Jonathan Tucker (The Ruins, The Black Donnellys) as the crazy couple. Also Prentiss’ mysterious past begins to reveal itself… sounds ominous. Dierdre Lovejoy (Rhonda Perlman from the Wire!) also guest stars.
Cougar Town “Lost Children” 9:30 on ABC
Cougar Town has the coolest group of friends on TV, they take the title of “Coolest Group” from the HIMYM gang. Tonight, the gang’s movie night gets stalled when Trav can’t fix the TV so Jules invents a new game! Looks like Penny Can has a new rival!
Dog the Bounty Hunter 8:00 on A&E – Dog reaches his 200th episode tonight. You’re the man now, Dog.
Live to Dance 8:00 on CBS – Paula delivers eloquent and concise judging.
American Idol 8:00 on FOX – Steven delivers insane comments, pervy flirts and drums along with more auditions for 2hrs tonight.
Minute To Win It 8:00 on NBC – Needs a solid host, which Fieri is anything but.
Chase 9:00 on NBC – Annie is in great danger and the team tries to rescue her. I bet they wish they could rescue this series.
Off The Map 10:00 on ABC – I feel really bad for Rachelle Leferve, replaced in the Twilight series and now a regular on this shit series. Tonight an electrocution causes major problems.
Blue Bloods 10:00 on CBS – Danny investigates the russian Maffia and Erin goes deep to stop corruption. Reagan’s Rule!
Retired at 35 10:30 on TVLand – George Segal (on the left) was on Just Shoot Me and he was awesome. Now he’s Jessica Walter’s husband – Advantage Segal!
Jimmy Kimmel 12:05 on ABC – Kimmel’s stacked tonight with Parks & Rec’s Amy Poehler and Raising Hope’s Martha Plimpton – two of TV’s best blondes.
That’s what’s on tonight friend-O, what’s on your platter for the evening? Check back later for more!
