What to Watch Tonight: Modern Family, American Horror Story, and Pretty Little Liars

What to watch on Wednesday, October 19...

It's taken you 19 years, but you've finally beaten all 96 levels of Super Mario World (including Star Road)!! Congrats, this is obviously huge, but now your children are grown and R.I.P all your friendships. Oh well! Anyway, it's time to unplug that Super Nintendo and watch some TV! (And after that plug it back in so we can play Street Fighter II.)

9pm, ABC
Modern Family
When the rest of her family takes off for a college tour, Claire decides to horn in on Mitchell and Cameron's "boys' night out." That'll probably go smoothly. Elsewhere Gloria and Jay have mixed emotions about how fast Manny appears to be growing up. They'll probably have a reasonable discussion about it.

10pm, FX
American Horror Story
Now that Vivien is dead-set on selling the house, it should come as no surprise that the house's legacy of brutal slayings will pretty much prevent anyone from buying it. Plus Ben's new best friend won't leave him alone and we learn more about Constance and Moira's backstory. It may or may not involve withering putdowns and/or murder.

8pm, NBC
Up All Night
A flashback episode! Tonight we'll learn about the circumstances surrounding Amy's birth, which will include Chris and Reagan's failed delivery plans as well as Chris's decision to leave his day job.

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
In what amounts to more of a Halloween special, Pretty Little Liars returns briefly tonight for an episode detailing the Halloween party held before Alison's vanishing. Plus Aria discovers something strange about her dad and Spencer attempts to overcome some important obstacles on her way to victory in the class elections.

9pm, Bravo
Work of Art: The Next Great Artist
Tonight the designers use parkour as a jumping-off point (pause for laughter) in their next works. Returning tonight as a guest judge is Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, fresh from her stint in a Taiwanese prison. (I'm guessing.)

11pm, Spike
Blue Mountain State
Tonight the bros of Blue Mountain State must deal with a campus-wide blackout; Alex will use the darkness to get back at a cheerleader from the rival team, and both school's coaches will battle each other in a high-stakes poker match. (Has anybody noticed that this show has gotten kind of good? Or is that just the 3am channel-surfing taking effect on my brain?)

Modern Family, MythBusters, Psych, South Park, and Pretend Time. Up All Night looks interesting but I'm waiting till I can watch the first 4-5 episodes in one go before I give it a try.

I will watch Suburgatory, Psych and American Horror Story. Psych and AHS air at the same time, unfortunately. I also like Law & Order SVU, though I am still feeling the sting of Christopher Meloni's departure.

Wednesday at 10 has become the biggest pile up for good shows; Revenge, Luther, Psych, and South Park. Thank goodness, I guess, that this is the final week for the awesome Luther which is just too short a series.
