The Top Chef Finale, Criminal Minds, and the Premiere of Coal

What to watch on Wednesday, March 30.

I often wonder what kind of exciting adventures my children have been having since they ran away from home. Jumping trains, perhaps, or sharing stories with talkative tramps, or maybe stealing diamonds from haughty princes? Who knows! But then I remember that *I'm* the one having the real adventures, and I don't even have to avert my eyes from the flat-screen! I mean, check these out:


SEASON FINALE, 10pm, Bravo
Top Chef All-Stars
The early 1970s were a time of transition for America: A very badly frayed society struggled to put behind it a decade of strife, corruption, and civil unrest. Luckily, no matter how bad things got, our beleaguered citizenry were always able to retreat home on Wednesday nights and watch Top Chef, because this season definitely started SO LONG AGO. I'm not complaining though, it's been a great season! Hey, tune in tonight to see if tattooed wiseguy Mike will beat out exhausted nerd Richard Blais. Funky! ('70s slang.)

9pm, CBS
Criminal Minds
Tonight our favorite brainy investigators track a group of friends who attack someone new every night. Peer pressure, it can be a KILLER. (The reason I say that is because in this case peer pressure causes people to kill other people). But seriously, teens, when it comes to peer pressure, just say no! Drugs too.

SEASON PREMIERE, 9pm, Spike
The Ultimate Fighter
Television's manliest (?) reality show kicks off its 13th season (IN THE FACE) as 14 welterweight fighters face off for the grand prize of a six-figure UFC contract and the ability to shirtless-hug A TON of semi-naked brutes. Depending on your viewpoint, ultimate fighting is completely inappropriate.

SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, Spike
Coal
Tonight Spike throws its hat into the horrifying-workplace-docudrama ring with this offering, a new show exploring the tough, grimy lives of West Virginia's finest coal miners. FINALLY! A Deadliest Catch without the scenery.

10pm, NBC
The E! True Hollywood Story: Holly Madison
See, it makes sense that E! would finally get around to giving Holly Madison her own special. Ever since E! emptied the contents of that tiny envelope into the tiny plastic aquarium it came with, it's been very excited about growing its own celebrity from scratch! What will we learn about her that hasn't already been filmed? I'm sure Holly Madison has tons of secrets. She's very shy, you guys.

repeats of Burn Notice, Criminal Minds, and Off the Map. Wednesday night's network TV lineup is not what it used to be.

Justified. I'll probably watch a replay of the new TUF. I MIGHT catch Norm on Letterman, but I'd prefer to see Norm with Conan.
