    I’m not partial to any show on Wednesdays, but I’ll watch The MIddle (if I remember – 8PM!) just because the premise of this particular episode sounds hysterical. I may also try Black-ish, but I’m not expecting much.

    Legends (chances for Season Two?)

  18. Lynne says:

    Definitely Red Band Society!! I really hope it goes up tonight after last week’s less than awesome rating.

    I’m finding that I’m not picking up many shows this season. Maybe the mid-season replacements will be better.
