It been a few weeks since Modern Family was new, and ABC trumps out it’s megasmash to pimp its new series Happy Endings (advanced word is pretty good) I’m just happy starting next week Cougar Town is back. And oh yeah frikkin Justified is on! Here are our recommendations for tonight, Wednesday April 13 2011.
Survivor “The Buddy System” 8:00 on CBS
Was I the only one who DIED of laughter when Matt got sent back to Redemption Island. It was probably one of my fave moments in the season, maybe even Survivor history, the look on his face was priceless. Tonight is the “two-eliminations-in-one-ep” episode. Gorillaface (Julie) is getting on my nerves, it seems like the casting people wanted another Jane or Holly and got a middle aged-Brett. Also I can’t believe Philip is still around, he probably thinks he’s got mad social game.
Modern Family “The Musical Man” 9:30 on ABC
Cameron and his love of musicals take center stage when he becomes the director of Luke and Manny’s play. Phil tries to get the family to participate in a realty ad and Jay’s brother (perfectly cast guest star Jonathan Banks, last seen holding a gun to Bryan Cranston on Breaking Bad) comes for a visit and their sibling rivalry gets a little out of control.
Happy Endings “Pilot” & “The Quicksand Girlfriend” 9:31 & 10:00 on ABC
Perfect Couples, Traffic Light, Mad Love and now this. I hope it falls somewhere closer to Traffic Light. One good sign is that no one in the cast has signed on to another pilot. Last year at this time Zachary Knighton signed on to this while Flashforward was still on the air indicating it’s death. The premise is that Alex (Elisha Cuthbert, 24) leaves Dave (Knighton) at the altar altering their social group forever. A group that includes Eliza Coupe as Dave’s sister and Damon Wayans Jr. as her husband, Adam Pally as gay buddy Max and SNL alum Casey Wilson as the devestatingly single one. Give it a try, it can’t be that bad.
Justified “Debts and Accounts” 10:00 on FX
Last week’s Justified was one of the strongest eps yet, featuring the death of Coover Bennett, an act that will no doubt propel the final act of the season and gave us a lot of Caitlyn Dever as Loretta. Watching her discover her father’s fate and try to exact revenge was amazing. Mags and Boyd are now united (as long as he doesn’t grow weed) after besting Carol (Rebecca Creskoff) and present a threat to Raylan’s life. Tonight features the return of Bad Boyd, who’s been pretty absent this season. Tonight is also said to feature some wicked violence, which Justified has become known for.

American Idol 8:00 on FOX – Check out the pre-show rakings tonight and then check out the idols take on Movie classics.
America’s Next Top Model 8:00 on CW – One girl read another girls diary. Brilliant.
The Middle 8:00 on ABC – Axl is forbidden for playing in the big game becuase he’s a disgusting teenage slob. Seems pretty fair. Also Sue gets awarded MVP for cross country which leaves her parents baffled.
Minute To Win It 8:00 on NBC – There is way better stuff on tonight, sorry NBC!
Better With You 8:30 on ABC – Definetly better than it’s given credit for being.
Shedding for the Wedding 9:00 on CW – Mr and Mrs. Biggest loser are revealed in the first season finale.
Criminal Minds 9:00 on CBS – Hunting killers.
Breaking In 9:30 on FOX – Breaking In did quite well in the post idol slot last week. It’s a decent sitcom so hopefully it can pull a repeat in the numbers.
Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior 10:00 on CBS – Hunting killers with oscar winner Forrest Whitaker and comedienne Janeane Garofalo (left).
The Real World: Las Vegas 10:00 on MTV – I miss Jersey Shore.
