What's On? Wednesday, 12/30/09

Lots of reruns tonight – you have to look far and wide to really find something new – my two cents, hit the Wednesday night ABC line up or the two hour block if GLEE on FOX!!

The 8:00 Hour –

ABC airs a rerun of HAPPY NEW YEAR, CHARLIE BROWN and THE MIDDLE – this is the episode where Frankie thinks it’s a great idea to stuff a billion discounted jelly beans into a car to try and get buyers excited about it.  It goes as well as you’d expect!  Over on CBS, they have reruns of THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE and GARY UNMARRIED.  On CHRISTINE, Christine proves to be a worse parent than Richard, based on her super over protectiveness!  On GARY, Gary tries to find a new bowling teammate after one quits before Championships.

FOX has a 2 hour block of GLEE starting with the “Vitamin D” episode that finds Teri working as the school nurse, and getting Kurt drunk!  NBC starts a four episode marathon of THE OFFICE with reruns of the season premiere “Gossip” and the second episode that finds Pam and Jim shocked to learn who “The Lover” in the title refers to!  Check out a rerun of a Sophia Bush directed episode that finds Dan returning to town on ONE TREE HILL on The CW.

The 9:00 Hour –

On ABC, there’s reruns of MODERN FAMILY and COUGARTOWN. On MODERN FAMILY, it’s the first day of school, and there are some issues with Manny’s choice of costuming!  On COUGARTOWN, Grayson bets Jules that she can’t be alone for a full day after he sees her coming home from a date with an old man!  CBS has a rerun of the episode of CRIMINAL MINDS where a poison is sent out in the air, and a member of the team risks their lives to save everyone else.

THE OFFICE marathon continues on NBC – episodes 3 and 4 are the episode where Jim and Pam double date with Michael and Pam’s mom; and the Secret Santa episode that I thought was one of their best Christmas episodes!  FOX airs hour 2 of GLEE.  The episode deals with Sue’s machinations within the club, pitting minorities against Finn, Quinn, and Rachel.  The CW airs a rerun of the first Hilary Duff episode of GOSSIP GIRL.

The 10:00 Hour –

ABC has an all new episode of EASTWICK.  The ladies agree to not let anyone know about their latest Witchly happenings.  Also, Jerry O’Connell drops by to woo Kat and Darryl explains why he came back to town.  CSI: NY is a rerun on CBS – the episode deals with a death at a bridal shop, and Hawkes’ investigation into the rape and murder that resembles that of his ex girlfriend.  LENO is a rerun on NBC, but I still pretend that doesn’t exist.

Check out the next episode of STEVEN SEAGAL: LAWMAN on A&E.  On MTV, you have the premiere of REAL WORLD DC.  I can only imagine someone will be yelling obscenities at someone!  TBS also has new two new episodes of MEET THE BROWNS.   In episode 1, Tanya needs Cora’s help, and Brown gets quarantined.  In the second episode, Tanya gets custody, and Brown breaks Edna’s record player.
