The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching Wednesday
On TV this Wednesday: A rebooted CBS newsmagazine gets Personal, Suburgatory‘s George gets latexasperated, William Devane gets wrapped up in a Revenge scheme and more. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features, we’ve picked eight programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Person to Person (CBS) | In the premiere of this rebooted celebrity interview special (founded by Edward R. Murrow in 1953), George Clooney and Jon Bon Jovi give tours of their homes in Los Angeles and New Jersey, respectively, while Warren Buffett opens the door to his Omaha office.
8 pm The Middle (ABC) | Mike angers Frankie when he botches a simple Valentine’s Day gesture; Sue doesn’t understand why her new boyfriend has suddenly turned into a bad kisser.
8:30 pm Suburgatory (ABC) | When George discovers a box of XXL condoms that Lisa has given Tessa… actually, we’re just gonna leave it at that. It’s better that way.
9 pm Criminal Minds (CBS) | The BAU team is called to Atlantic City to investigate a series of ritualistic casino-related murders; Garcia, after a spat with boyfriend Kevin, fears she and Morgan may have gotten a little too “friendly” (get more scoop on that here). Dean Cain (Lois & Clark) guest-stars.
9 pm Rock Center With Brian Williams (NBC) | New time slot alert! Meredith Vieira shares an exclusive interview with Mimi Alford, the author of Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and its Aftermath, who shares explicit (eek) details about the affair she had with JFK when she was but 19 years old.
9 pm Modern Family (ABC) | Phil is so preoccupied with impressing his new business partner (guest star Greg Kinnear) that he doesn’t notice the guy is perhaps being overtly inappropriate with Claire; Jay and Gloria have their hands full when Mitchell and Cameron need to crash at their place for a bit.
10 pm Law & Order: SVU (NBC) | Michael McKean (Smallville) guest-stars as a lecherous reality-TV casting boss, while Cameron Monaghan (Shameless) plays his troubled son-slash-producer. (Read more about the Benson-centric episode in Ask Ausiello.)
10 pm Revenge (ABC) | As Emily and Daniel’s engagement party (yes, that party) nears, Victoria tries to use Conrad’s father (William Devane, Knots Landing) against him, Jack finds himself wandering deeper into the fray and the rug gets pulled out from under Emily.
