Today's Picks: The Beatles, the Lego factory, and the "Ballsy-go-Round"

It's Wednesday night -- and Michael and Michael are wrapping up their first season!

Here are Wednesday's key new episodes:
Gordon Ramsay's F-Word (6 p.m., BBC America)
America's Got Talent (9 p.m., NBC)
Man vs. Wild (9 p.m., DSC) | Leverage (9 p.m., TNT)
Top Chef: Las Vegas (10 p.m., BRAVO) | Dark Blue (10 p.m., TNT)

Also on the airwaves ...

Extreme Mega Factories (5 p.m, TRAVEL): Your curious inner child will jump for joy at this program, which tours both a Lego factory and the United States Mint. If only the Travel Channel could explain the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus, too ...

Wipeout (8 p.m., ABC) and Crash Course (Series premiere, 9 p.m., ABC): A reality competition show that boasts obstacles with names like "Ballsy-Go-Round" and "Swinging Cereal Killer," is hard to resist. But if large foam props and pools of unidentified goop aren't your thing, tune in at 9 p.m. for the series premiere of Crash Course, which is like Wipeout but with cars.

The Beatles Anthology, Part I (9 p.m., VH1): Originally aired in 1995, this three-parter includes interviews with the Fab Four and George Martin, footage from early performances, and original recordings of songs like "Please Please Me" and "'Til There Was You." Finally, quality (albeit produced-by-somebody-else) programming on VH1!

Pulp Fiction (9 p.m., IFC): Before you buy your tickets to Inglourious Basterds, be sure to experience Quentin Tarantino's claim-to-fame in all its Royale with Cheese-Ezekiel 25:17-You Never Can Tell glory.

Michael and Michael Have Issues (Season 1 finale, 10:30 p.m., COMEDY): After 7 episodes, MMHI is coming to an end. We're hoping that the State vets can secure another season with a gripping finale -- and tonight's storyline, which features the characters' appearance on a rival show, just might be the ticket.

What are you planning to watch tonight?

I rented The Beatles Anthology a while ago. It's excellent. They are gearing up for the Rock Band Beatles edition release on Sept. 9.
