What to watch on Wednesday, April 11...
All right, it's eight o'clock. Time to snatch back the remote from your children and send them outside to, I don't know, water the chickens? It's grown-up time and there are some ITEMS we need to watch:
SERIES PREMIERE, 9:30pm, ABC
Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23
Don't tell me what to do! I'll trust who I want to trust! Anyway, this show has a bossy title, but word on the street is it's pretty funny! Krysten Ritter is great and who can resist the notion of James Van Der Beek playing himself? In tonight's pilot we'll meet June, a nice girl from the heartland, who loses her job and moves in with Chloe, the "B" we're not supposed to trust.
Survivor: One World
Now that a handful of (very competent) women wield the most power, there's chance this show could be headed into anti-climactic territory. Still though, see who gets the boot tonight. Will it be one of the two Tarzan emulators, the high-voiced hunk, or maybe someone actually surprising? Only Jeff Probst knows, but he's shy.
America's most modern family mobilizes tonight in support of Claire's race for town council. Will some last minute zany antics on election day secure her victory or ensure her defeat? Either way, twelve well-appointed camera crews will be there to film every last detail.
SEASON 6 FINALE, 10pm, USA
In "Santabarbaratown," Shawn, Gus, and Henry get into some Cold Case type shenanigans when a murder victim's body shows up 20 years after the murder. Oh and it's the season finale! So, you know, expect an interesting ending.
RECAP SPECIAL, 10pm, ABC
Revenge: From the Beginning
Remember when Revenge was a show that seemed to come on once a week? I don't either! Where did Revenge go, anyway? So this is what appears to be a recap special for those who haven't watched but want to get involved in the last few episodes. Or it's just for people nostalgic for a time when Revenge was on every week. Either way.
SEASON 7 PREMIERE, 10pm, MTV
Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew
For my money, this show is easily the second best dance show on television. It's just fun, like a TV version of candy— and not bad candy like Good 'n Plentys, I'm talking Wildberry Skittles or Mini-Chewy Sweet Tarts, good candy like that. But yeah, in tonight's Season 7 premiere, watch as dance crews incorporate Britney Spears songs into their routines and Lil Mama gives the most baffling critiques on TV.
