Watch this, DVR that: Your guide to Wednesday's perfect night of TV
In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your Fall Wednesday night game plan:
Watch: Survivor (CBS): The long-running reality show revives the Blood vs. Water concept as nine pairs compete to win a million dollars in Nicaragua.
DVR: Arrow (The CW): Arrow returns with classic DC Comics villain Ra’s al Ghul as a new foe while Oliver (Stephen Amell) continues to contend with his identity as the titular superhero. Premieres Oct. 8.
Watch: Modern Family (ABC): The show continues with Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) honeymoon period while Haley (Sarah Hyland) struggles with her feelings for Andy (Adam Devine).
Watch: Black-ish (ABC): Black-ish follows the Johnsons, a family living the American dream—even though father Andre (Anthony Anderson) feels that his family isn’t living his particular definition of “the black experience.”
DVR: Red Band Society (Fox): The hospital drama follows a Breakfast Club-like group of kids who live in the pediatric ward while dealing with illness and the everyday struggles of the teenage experience.
Watch: American Horror Story: Freak Show (FX): Freak Show was doing three-boobs before it became a whole thing. FX continues the American Horror Story franchise, this time set in a circus of performers that features the three-boobed Desiree (Angela Bassett), conjoined twins Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson), and bearded lady Ethel (Kathy Bates). Premieres Oct. 8.
