What to watch on Wednesday, November 20...


8pm, ABC
The Middle
What better occasion than “Thanksgiving V” for the Hecks to unload their most mortifying news to one another? Like the secret Sue’s carried since her last shopping trip, or the three classes that Axl has been forced to drop, or the damage to Tag’s pocketbook that online gambling has wrought. No hidden drama for Brick, though—he just wants to get his hands on the right jello salad.


8pm, NBC
Revolution
Charlie strives to impress her mother, even as Rachel and Gene grapple with their uneasy relationship. Meanwhile in “Everyone Says I Love You,” Neville declaims to Jason in no certain terms.


8pm, The CW
Arrow
What’s this? That vainglorious viper Count Vertigo vexing the village with his venomous drug? Can Starling City’s verdant venturer vanquish the vile villain once more, even as his closest compatriots are caught in the crossfire? Tune in to “State v. Queen” and find out—same Arrow-time, same Arrow-channel!


9pm, The CW
The Tomorrow People
In “Limbo,” Jedikiah brings the hammer down after Stephen takes his new powers out for a lighthearted whirl, and a nasty new breakout creates even more headaches for our hero. In other Tomorrovian tidings, John detects an odd new dynamic with Cara after he and Russell return from their trip.


9pm, NBC
Law & Order: SVU
“Rapist Anonymous” finds Rollins caught in the midst after a friend presses rape charges against her lover. The complex and sordid case soon leads to the spilling of secrets—and blood.


9pm, ABC
Modern Family
Did you forget to buy your tickets for “ClosetCon ‘13”? Well fear not, because Jay Pritchett is here to walk you through the highlights and hot spots, and even to reconnect with some former colleagues along the way. Back in the non-closet-focused world, Cam, Mitch, and Lily visit the Tucker farmstead, while Gloria, Phil, and the kids drum up some tomfoolery involving Jay’s model Apollo 13.


SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, Esquire
How I Rock It
NBA star Baron Davis hosts this hard-hitting examination of dudes and their various dudely pursuits. The opener profiles My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, actor/motorcycle enthusiast Jason Lee, sartorialist Waraire Boswell, and Meatball Shop proprietor Michael Chernow.


SEASON 5 FINALE 10pm & 10:30pm, FXX
The League
As the league playoffs roll on, Ruxin and Sofia go head-to-head over the future of their tyke’s faith in “Baby Geoffrey Jesus.” Then in “The 8 Defensive Points of Hanukkah,” Rafi has business with Ruxin’s sister Rebecca (Lizzy Caplan), while TacoCorp makes its mark on the Information Age by establishing the Eskimo Brothers Database.


10pm ABC
Nashville
Scarlett and Luke kick off their tour, with Rayna tagging along for moral support—though Deacon has a harsher assessment of Rayna’s approach. Elsewhere in “Hanky Panky Woman,” Juliette comes to a decision on Charlie, Gunnar receives creative inspiration from Scarlett, and Jeff clashes with Rayna over control of her album.


10pm, FX
American Horror Story: Coven
Queenie has qualms after hitting the town with LaLaurie in “The Dead,” while Cordelia makes up her mind about her mom and Fiona strikes up a perilous romance. How perilous? Considering this show, she could start knocking boots with some sort of eldritch druidic goat-demon. Who’s to say?
