What’s new on the box(es) tonight:

Super Fun Night (ABC) Series Debut: Don’t dismiss a TV-subdued Rebel Wilson with an American accent: Super Fun Night works hilariously, largely due to Wilson’s (relative) underplaying as Kimmie, a junior attorney whose recent promotion is also moving her up the social ladder. ---But will she abandon her equally geeky best friends (Liza Lapira and Lauren Ash) and their standing Friday shut-in “Super Fun Night”? It’s an odd pairing with Modern Family, but Super Fun Night shares the same underlying sweetness and bonding. But it’s also saltier and edgier then the rest of ABC Wednesday, and look where that got Happy Endings.

Ironside (NBC) Series Debut: So, there’s Blair Underwood as wheelchair-bound detective Robert T. Ironside, and … it’s another cop procedural, just with a recognizable brand name—to a certain generation, anyway (see, kids, Ironside was a 1967-75 NBC cop show starring Perry Mason). There’s no denying Underwood’s onscreen charisma, and his Ironside is far more of a badass than his predecessor, but I’d rather see a Columbo reboot starring Sam Rockwell, personally.

Arrow: Year One (The CW) Special: If you didn’t watch it last season and want to jump in now—and you should—check out Arrow: Year One, a greatest-hits intro to the best show about a superhero with a green-eyeshadow fetish on TV.
