On TV this Wednesday: Jack McBrayer becomes a Middle man, an Angel alum visits CSI, Psych tries to keep the Mob out of a marriage and Rayna once more finds herself at a Nashville hospital. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 9 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm The Middle (ABC) | 30 Rock‘s Jack McBrayer guest-stars as a dentist who interviews Frankie for a potential job – too bad she gets tripped up by the “tell us a little something about yourself” question. Jim Beaver (Supernatural, Justified) also guest-stars.
8:30 pm Suburgatory (ABC) | It’s time for Ryan to choose a college. When he begs Tessa to decide for him, she rigs his decision-making process – and Dalia uses that info to her advantage. Carmen Electra (Baywatch) guest-stars as a rep from the hilariously named North Las Vegas Institute for Casino Studies.
9 pm Criminal Minds (CBS) | A 25-year-old time capsule contains a gruesome discovery. (No, not a VHS copy of Crocodile Dundee II.) Pamela Bellwood (Dynasty) guest-stars as a local newspaper editor.
9 pm Toy Hunter (Travel) | Back-to-back Season 2 premiere: KISS frontman Gene Simmons accompanies Jordan on a hunt to pick up as much of the band’s memorabilia as possible; Jordan and Steve’s bet to see who can find the most valuable toy unearths a Six Million Dollar Man Control Center and a Fonz pinball machine.
9 pm Modern Family (ABC) | Benjamin Bratt (Private Practice) reprises his role of Manny’s dad, who ticks off Gloria when he brings his new girlfriend (played by Criminal Minds‘ Paget Brewster) along for the visit. (Watch a video sneak peek.)
