What's On? Wednesday, 12/9/09

Busy Wednesday for the second week of December!

The 8:00 Hour –

ABC airs SHREK THE HALLS and an all new episode of THE MIDDLE which has the Heck clan dealing with their impending holidays.   Also sounds like Brick has a problem and the family needs to rally around him to get him in the Christmas spirit!   CBS comedies are all new tonight.  On THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE, Amy Sedaris guest stars as a woman that Christine picked on in high school.  Because Ritchie has become a bully, Christine apologizes for her past.  On GARY UNMARRIED, Allison butts in on Sasha and Gary’s first date.

FOX tells us what 2 dancers aren’t going to make it to the finale for Season 6 of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.  There is a new episode of one of my guilty pleasures, MERCY, over on NBC.  Jason Ritter guest stars as Veronica’s life continues to fall apart around her!  Over on The CW, look out for a rerun of GOSSIP GIRL – if you missed Monday’s episode, catch up!

The 9:00 Hour –

On ABC, MODERN FAMILY airs their first holiday episode which features Fred Willard guest starring as Phil’s dad (casting win!); check out COUGARTOWN right after that for guest star Scott Foley, who uses real estate as a way to get a date with Jules!  An all new episode of CRIMINAL MINDS deals with the aftermath of Hotch’s family drama airs on CBS!

We’ve made it to “Sectionals” with New Directions and on tonight’s GLEE, they lay it all on the line!  I’m almost positive it won’t go well! There’s a new episode of LAW AND ORDER: SVU that spends some time with Fin, and features a guest star spot from John Laroquette.  The VICTORIA’S SECRET FASHION SHOW airs on The CW.  Check out an all new GHOST HUNTERS on Syfy as well!

The 10:00 Hour –

If you’re a fan of Adam Lambert, Kate Gosselin, and Lady Gaga, check out BARBARA WALTERS’ FASCINATING PEOPLE special on ABC.  CBS has a new episode of CSI: NY dealing with the team finding a house filled with bodies, and looking like a leftover location shot from the SAW films.  As always, NBC has Leno.

The big draw for me tonight is the finale of TOP CHEF: LAS VEGAS – it’s all down to the brothers Voltaggio and Kevin.  I really don’t mind any of these three winning, but I might actually be partial to Michael!!  Over on MTV, don’t miss the end of this season of REAL WORLD / ROAD RULES where the winners are revealed.  NIP/TUCK is all new tonight, too, and check out an all new GHOST HUNTERS ACADEMY on Syfy.  Don’t forget to check out two all new episodes of STEVEN SEAGAL: LAWMAN on A&E!

If you don’t feel like sleeping early, check out the premiere of TEEN MOM on MTV (a spinoff of my guilty pleasure 16 AND PREGNANT) and a new episode of TABITHA’S SALON TAKEOVER on Bravo!
