Familiar Faces

CBS airs a new reality show called "I Get That A Lot," which debuts at 8 p.m. It follows celebrities such as Rachael Ray and Paris Hilton working at ordinary jobs. They meet regular people on hidden camera, who either do or don't recognize them.

It doesn't seem to be a fresh or original concept, but I suppose it beats following some of these people on TMZ.

WEDNESDAY'S BEST BETS: There are some other familiar faces appearing on the tube tonight.

Most notable is the "Friends" reunion on "Cougar Town" (ABC, 9:30 p.m.), in which Lisa Kudrow guest stars as Courtney Cox's dermatologist -- and enemy. It follows a new "Modern Family," in which Benjamin Bratt of "Law & Order" guest stars as Manny's father. They follow two new episodes of "The Middle," and are followed at 10 p.m. by "Ugly Betty" on its new night and timeslot.

CBS also airs the People's Choice Awards at 9 p.m. Quite literally a popularity contest, this has to be one of the dumbest awards out there. Do you think people put their People's Choice trophy next to their Emmy or their Grammy on the shelf?

NBC airs new episodes of "Mercy" and "Law & Order: SVU," beginning at 8 p.m.

On cable, "Nip/Tuck" (FX, 10 p.m.) begins its final season with a new episode tonight.
