What to watch on Wednesday, February 29...

Happy Leap Day! What a weird, strange calendar we use! Oh well, it's better than one that constantly promises an apocalypse. Unless THAT's the true meaning of Leap Day? Uh-oh. Well, assuming we survive this unholy calendar abomination, here are some things to watch tonight:

9pm, ABC
Modern Family
It's Leap Day madness for everyone's favorite band of modern familiars: Mitchell attempts to find Cameron the perfect birthday gift, seeing as his birthday only falls on Leap Day every four years; Jay faces a crisis of masculinity; and Phil's Leap Day plans don't go as expected. Typical Leap Day, am I right?

SEASON 18 PREMIERE, 9pm, CW
America's Next Top Model: British Invasion
Not content to annoy the entirety of North America, tonight Tyra Banks intends to begin annoying the U.K. community as well. This season's gimmick finds seven American hopefuls competing against seven British alumni of Britain's Next Top Model. Sadly Andre Leon Talley won't be there, but Kelly Osbourne will. No offense, lady, but that's a downgrade.

10pm, ABC
Revenge
In an episode titled "Scandal" (had that title really not been used yet?), Emily gets nervous that the party-murder might cast suspicion on her. Meanwhile, Amanda's disappearance is the talk of the town. Well, it probably comes in second after the party-murder, but you know how the Hamptons is.

9:30pm, ABC
Happy Endings
Tonight Dave finds himself suddenly famous when his food truck's signature alcoholic beverage makes it a trendy hot spot. Unfortunately for Dave's friends, the drink causes them to all have erotic dreams about him, because WHAT? Meanwhile, Colin Hanks appears as himself, because fine.

10pm, Syfy
Face Off
In tonight's installment of TV's current best reality program, the remaining makeup artists must transform ordinary citizens into Tim Burton-esque characters. No less than Catherine O'Hara herself is the guest judge! So good.

SEASON 9 FINALE, 10pm, Bravo
Top Chef: Texas
This season seems like it has lasted for about 14 months but it might finally be over! Tune in tonight to see whether Paul or Sarah will take home the final honors after a four-course race to the finish. (Part 1 of 7.) (Just kidding.) (Hopefully.)
