On TV this Wednesday: It’s not a dream — Dallas really is back, Utah gets its Dance on, Duets puts its hands in the air and waves ’em like it just don’t care, and Coming Home threatens to make a sobbing mess out of even the most stonehearted viewers. Here are 10 programs you might want to check out.
8 pm So You Think You Can Dance (Fox) | The auditions round continues in Salt Lake City, where the Vegas hopefuls are sure to be clean-cut, polite and really eager to talk to you.
8 pm Melissa & Joey (ABC Family) | Mel finds a way to turn a not-so-flattering online video into a campaign boon. (Get your minds out of the gutter; this is ABC Family.) Maybe the successful spin has something to do with her new political consultant (played by Entourage‘s Debi Mazar)?
9 pm Dallas (TNT) | Larry Hagman’s J.R. is back, and he’s brought faces both familiar (Patrick Duffy as Bobby, Linda Gray as Sue Ellen) and fresh (Jesse Metcalfe, Josh Henderson and Jordana Brewster) with him in this continuation of the popular primetime soap.
9 pm Modern Family (ABC) | A Repeat to Revisit: Ed O’Neill is great as Jay fumes at Cameron’s father’s treatment of Mitchell.
9:30 pm Duets (ABC) | Special night (thanks, NBA finals!): Bust out your Solo cups, because it’s party song time for the pros and their partners.
10 pm Fast N’Loud (Discovery) | Richard and Aaron find a ’55 Chevy Bel Air and a ’50 Oldsmobile Coupe Rocket 88, and have 48 hours to get a ’73 Cadillac ready for Route 66. And that, friends, was a whole lot of numbers in one sentence.
10 pm The Soup (E!) | Dexter’s Colin Hanks drops by.
10 pm Coming Home (Lifetime) | If you can’t get enough of those dog/child/mother/fiancée-freaks-out-when-a-soldier-returns-home videos, this show is for you.
10 pm America’s Best Dance Crew (MTV) | Season finale: Elektrolytes and 8 Flavahz battle it out to some of celeb guest Katy Perry’s biggest hits, including “Wide Awake,” “Part of Me,” “Last Friday Night” and “ET.”
10 pm Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman (Science) | This episode of the nerdy fun series concerns an examination of whether the universe is alive. Honestly, I’m not that interested in the answer, but I would listen to Freeman recite last year’s tax return, so I’m in.
