What to Watch Tonight: Law & Order: SVU, American Horror Story and the 45th Annual CMA Awards

What to watch on Wednesday, November 9...

What's an appropriate amount of time to spend searching for your family after they'd been teleported out of the dimension by an angry wizard? Four hours? Five? I feel like five is probably enough, because it's time to watch some TV! Like these things for example:

10pm, FX
American Horror Story
While that Halloween twofer might be a tough act to follow, tune in tonight for "Piggy Piggy," in which Constance teams up with Violet to "deal" with Tate. Elsewhere (outside of the house?) Ben treats a brand new patient and forces him to face his fears. Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet guest stars, but something tells me he won't be quite as charming here.

8pm, NBC
Up All Night
Chris and Reagan's date night forces Ava out of her comfort zone when she agrees to babysit! Also she'll meet a handsome single dad played by Jason Lee who tempts her away from her other boyfriend. Good luck you bunch of charming crazies!

10pm, NBC
Law & Order: SVU
When a Russian mail-order bride is found murdered, Cragen decides to go undercover as a lonely man looking to purchase a wife. Haha WHAT? This show.

45th Annual CMA Awards
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-host tonight's 45th annual gala telecast live from Nashville. While it's doubtful they'll repeatedly start making out on stage, you CAN bet on the fact that there will be performances from Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton and the Band Perry. Also awards will be handed out, I guess.

9pm, Bravo
Work of Art: The Next Great Artist
Tonight the remaining artists will be set loose in the New York Times trash room to find newspaper-related inspiration for their pieces. Then at the very end of the episode we'll find out that the entire series isn't a reality show at all, but an elaborate conceptual art piece by Sarah Jessica Parker intended to get people to really think about stuff.

11pm, Spike
Blue Mountain State
In tonight's half-hour excursion into TV's most surreal sexy bong showcase, a TV camera crew follows around the team and witnesses the various awkward tensions between players, coaches, and Thad's desperate pursuit of an acting career. (Thad is the best. HIRED.)

    South Park. That's all. Maybe Mythbusters, but mostly South Park.

  • Crazy-for-TV Nov 10, 2011

    I, too, boo at the CMA Awards. It's depriving me of "The Middle" and "Modern Family," the only two shows I watch on Wednesday night! I guess I'll watch a rerun on the DVR or something on DVD.
