On TV this Wednesday: Top Chef takes Halloween in New Directions, Criminal Minds jumps on the witch-loving bandwagon, Brooke Shields has a Super Fun Night and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is getting too old for this… stuff. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
7:30 pm World Series (Fox) | With the Red Sox up three games to the Cardinals’ two, tonight could clinch the championship for the bearded ones. (Or, it could lead to a Game 7 tomorrow night.)
8 pm The Middle (ABC) | In “Halloween IV: The Ghost Story,” Sue holds a seance; the football team stops Axl from attending a party in his own room and the fam gives Brick advice about girls.
8:30 pm Back in the Game (ABC) | Danny takes the team trick-or-treating, while Lulu tries to teach Terry to celebrate Halloween as an adult.
9 pm Criminal Minds (CBS) | As the BAU tracks an UnSub seemingly obsessed with the Salem Witch Trials, Garcia plans a Day of the Dead celebration at her apartment.
