It's a big night for ABC — the network is premiering three shows tonight including half of their new Wednesday block of comedy. Hank and The Middle will take over the 8 o'clock hour next week, but tonight brings a few shows I'm actually pretty excited about. First up is Modern Family which is one of my favorite new comedies and after you watch you'll see why we've been saying "Why the face?" to each other in the office for weeks already. The pilot of Cougar Town didn't thrill me, but Bill Lawrence and Courteney Cox eased my fears at the TCAs. Cougar Town has apparently undergone some changes before it hits the air tonight so I'm eager to see whether any of the jokes have gotten less cringe-worthy.
At 10 there's Eastwick starring Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price and Jaime Ray Newman. As for Paul Gross? Well you'll have to watch to find out exactly what's up with his otherworldly character. At times it's a little too Practical Magic meets Desperate Housewives, but enough happens in the first episode to keep me watching — at least for a few episodes. Considering how much I love Glee and So You Think You Can Dance — speaking of which don't miss our awesome new giveaway! — it's one of those nights I'm extra thankful for TiVo. What do you think, will any of these shows take a spot in your Wednesday night rotation?
