Today's Picks: Dancing, Singing, and Jason Bateman

  • 5comments

It’s Wednesday night – get ready for Glee!

Here are Wednesday’s key new episodes:

Gordon Ramsay’s F-Word (6 p.m., BBCa) | Wipeout (8 p.m., ABC)
Crash Course (9 p.m., ABC) | America's Got Talent (9 p.m., NBC)
Man vs. Wild (9 p.m., DSC) | Leverage (9 p.m., TNT)
The Beatles Anthology (Part II, 9 p.m., VH1)
Criss Angel: Mindfreak (10 p.m., A&E;) | Top Chef (10 p.m., BRAVO)

Also on the airwaves ...

Atonement (5:45 p.m., HBO2): This unrequited love story stars James McAvoy and Kiera Knightley -- but it doesn't focus on Knightley's signature pursed lips and pensive gazes. She and McAvoy have heartbreaking chemistry in this sweeping, gorgeous film.

Man vs. Food (7 p.m., TRAVEL): I've said it before and I'll say it again: Train-wreck television is awesome. And in this episode, Adam Richman participates in Durham, North Carolina's Doughman race. It's part triathlon, part eating contest. I just hope he doesn't pull a Michael Scott.

So You Think You Can Dance: 15 Best Performances (8 p.m., FOX): After five toe-tapping seasons, SYTYCD has yielded hundreds of memorable moments -- but this special will feature only the best of the best. Relive the top 15 performances in SYTYCD history -- and then stick around afterward for Glee!

Glee (9 p.m., FOX): If you haven't yet seen the pilot of this brand-new series about high school glee club, now's your chance. So don't miss it, because the season premiere is next week! (WARNING: After you watch it, you will have Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" stuck in your head.)

Late Show with David Letterman (11:35 p.m., CBS) and/or The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (11:35 p.m., NBC): Decisions, decisions! This one's actually a toss-up: Jason Bateman is on Letterman to promote his new movie, Extract, and we love him to pieces. But we also want to see what happens when John McCain stops by to visit Conan.
