Wednesday's Best Bets

Just a quick note today, since last night's election stuff ran late.

The people of Georgia spoke and elected the government they deserve -- unfortunately for the rest of us living here.

WEDNESDAY'S BEST BETS: Most of the stuff is new tonight, given that we're now in sweeps territory.

I know two episodes hardly makes for a tradition, but the "who can give Jules the best birthday present?" episodes of "Cougar Town" (ABC, 9:30 p.m.) are quickly becoming my favorite ones for this quirky, underrated series. It follows a new night of ABC sitcoms, before the special "Robin Roberts: All Access Nashville" at 10 p.m., in which she interviews a bunch country music stars whose songs I've never listened to.

I finally really gave up on "Undercovers" (NBC, 8 p.m.) last week, which may go down as the blandest action-oriented, good-looking cast show ever. It's followed by "Law & Order: SVU" and "L&O: LA" from 9-11 p.m.

"Survivor," "Criminal Minds" and "The Defenders" are all new on CBS.

PBS begins the special "Circus" (PBS, 9 p.m.) which shows life in a real life circus over the course of a year. Just in case anyone was considering running away to join one.

On cable, "Terriers" (FX, 10 p.m.) starts to wind down its excellent first season, while BBC America airs the reality musical show, "I'd Do Anything" beginning at 9 p.m.
