  • 57comments

What to watch on Wednesday, October 12...

Tonight's television schedule will make you so glad you came straight home after work! As opposed to, I don't know, attending a carnival? Where have you been going after work lately??

10pm, FX
American Horror Story
Is everybody mentally prepared for another episode of this thing? Let's do it then! Tonight Ben refuses to treat Tate because Tate's going after Violet, plus he decides to head back to Boston to clear up some unfinished business. Also Vivien and Violet find themselves in a frightening situation that's suspiciously similar to one the house has seen (or instigated?) before.

8pm, CBS
Survivor: South Pacific
Based on the teasers, tonight's episode of Survivor promises to contain the most disgusting challenge in recent memory. I think it's something along the lines of the tribes having to bite flesh from a whole roast pig and spit it into bucket? Vegans beware!

SEASON 6 PREMIERE, 10pm, USA
Psych
America's most charming non-psychic charlatan returns tonight to assist in a Star Wars memorabilia-related murder. I sense the episode will be either humorous or geeky, or both. Just kidding, I'm not actually psychic you guys!

SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 9pm, Bravo
Work of Art: The Next Great Artist
One of Bravo's more watchable and less reprehensible reality shows returns tonight with a new batch of alternately delusional and talented artists! In tonight's premiere the artists will all reinterpret "kitschy" art that's been deemed too low-brow by the non-hoi polloi.

10pm, ABC
Revenge
Whose life will Emily sabotage this week? Glad you asked, tonight she'll focus her attentions on the therapist who had her committed as a child, during a—get this—mental health charity event. Oh ho ho, how apropos, you devil woman, you!
