TV Tonight: Cougar Town, Undercovers, Hell's Kitchen


Wednesday night is the new Thursday night: Too damn much stuff going head-to-head-to-head in primetime. After a few cancellations, however, things should settle (looking at you, Jim Belushi). ---

What’s new tonight:
Cougar Town (ABC) Season Premiere: Modern Family gets the hype, but Courteney Cox’s Cougar Town is the underdog ensemble comedy to check out on Wednesdays—they’re even bringing in ex-Friend Jennifer Aniston to grab some attention. She plays Cox’s new psychiatrist, which is funny all on its own.

Undercovers (NBC) Series Debut: They’re spies! They’re married! They’re gorgeous! They like to cook! This is a J.J. Abrams joint, so Alias comparisons are inevitable, not to mention Mr. & Mrs. Smith and a dozen other far more interesting spy yarns—maybe even Top Chef. Undercovers isn’t as smart/funny as Chuck, but at least it has better recipes.

Hell’s Kitchen (Fox) Season Premiere: Gordon Ramsay back where he belongs: Screaming at hapless chefs instead of encouraging them. You donkey!

The Defenders (CBS) Series Debut: Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell are Las Vegas defense lawyers. Somehow, it’s even worse than that sounds. Can we have Shark back now, CBS?

Also new tonight:
Better With You, The Whole Truth (ABC) Series Debuts; The Middle, Modern Family (ABC) Season Premieres; Survivor: Nicaragua (CBS); Criminal Minds (CBS) Season Premiere; Law & Order: SVU (NBC) Season Premiere; America’s Next Top Model, Hellcats (The CW); Terriers (FX); Top Chef: Reunion, Top Chef: Just Desserts (Bravo); L.A. Ink (TLC); Tosh.0 (Comedy Central)

If The Defenders keeps Natalie Zea (O’Connell’s girlfriend, apparently) from working on FX’s Justified, a far worse crime has been committed in Vegas:
