What to Watch Tonight: Revenge, Happy Endings, and Modern Family

  • 38comments


What to watch on Wednesday, February 8...

Please enjoy these delightful infotainment nuggets, hand-picked for you in order to enhance your television decision-making process. Or you can just watch whatever. Either way.

9:30pm, ABC
Happy Endings
The Happy Endings crew celebrates Valentine's Day this week, but as you'd expect it's simultaneously weirder and more hilarious than any Valentine's Day YOU OR I will ever experience. Tonight both Penny and Dave find themselves on the brink of break-up with their respective friendly friends. Meanwhile Max runs into the guy he dumped the previous Valentine's Day (played by Lone Star's James Wolk).

10pm, ABC
Revenge
Tonight Conrad's father pays a visit to the Hamptons and immediately gets ensnared in one of Victoria's schemes. Elsewhere Jack decides to take a more active role in the drama surrounding him, plus Emily faces a surprising setback. (What, does HER favorite trashy nighttime soap take too many hiatuses also?)

SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, CBS
Person to Person
Here's a new primetime interview program where slightly upscale interviewers Charlie Rose and Lara Logan sit down with some of the nation's most notable celebrities, politicians, and newsmakers. First up tonight: George Clooney, Warren Buffet, and Jon Bon Jovi, who will presumably confirm or deny once and for all whether or not he is alive.

9pm, ABC
Modern Family
In "Me? Jealous?" Phil becomes too wrapped up in a possible business venture to notice his new partner's highly inappropriate behavior around Claire. Meanwhile Mitchell and Cameron prove to be difficult houseguests for Jay and Gloria, but don't worry, camera crews will be there to film ALL of it!

10pm, NBC
Law & Order: SVU
When a reality-TV producer is arrested for the rape of an actress, the situation escalates into full-blown hostage-taking. At the same time, Benson and ADA Haden spend some quality time together. Probably just talkin' lightheartedly about all their charming cases.
