I really gotta say, when it comes to a new week of television I always look forward to ABC’s comedy block on Wednesdays. And tonight it is new across the board. The Middle and Modern Family have been consistently funny the past few years, while Suburgatory I only discovered with last week’s Halloween themed episode and with a mix a likeable characters and a creative story it kept me watching while I wasn’t looking for a new show to get hooked on. Happy Endings is a weird fit for the block, but I’m going to give it a chance. It doesn’t help that I’m anticipating the return of Cougar Town, which I’m still shocked that I love it as much as I do.

The Middle starts the block at 8pm, tonight’s episode is “Heck’s Best Thing”; Axl has an interview with a college-football scout, and his parents worry it won’t go well. Elsewhere, Sue and Brick engage in a texting marathon with their aunt’s cell phone.

Next up is Suburgatory with “Charity Case” at 8:30pm; Tessa persuades the school to get behind charitable causes, which yields mixed results, but her peers begin to wonder who really needs their help. Meanwhile, George’s friendship with Noah hits a snag after he gets a huge bill for dental work.

At 9pm we have the multiple Emmy award winning Modern Family. Tonight’s episode is “Treehouse”; Gloria persuades Jay to commit to a night of salsa dancing after seeing how much his friend Shorty (Chazz Palminteri) and his girlfriend (Jennifer Tilly) do together. Meanwhile, Cameron makes a bet that he can get a woman’s phone number at the bar; and Phil builds a tree house.

Last up we have Happy Endings with “Lying Around”; Brad sneaks off on a secret staycation at a plush hotel in the city in order to dodge a visit from Jane’s sorority sister. Meanwhile, Alex’s new boyfriend takes dating to a new level; and Max and Dave shoot a commercial for a lunch truck.

There is a decent selection of programming tonight, along with the return of FOX’s regular Tuesday night programming since the World Series ended. On tonight’s Glee at 8pm on FOX we are introduced to a new character portrayed by Damian McGinty, the co-winner of The Glee Project reality competition. Check out the network’s official description of the all new episode: “Pot of Gold” A new foreign-exchange student (Damian McGinty) enrolls at McKinley and crashes with Brittany, who thinks he’s a leprechaun. Meanwhile, Mercedes tries to recruit members for Shelby Corcoran’s new glee club; and Sue’s congressional campaign heats up.

I’m not digging this whole rivalry with the school having two Glee clubs. We’ll have to see how it plays out, the random month hiatus between new episodes certainly did not help the flow of season three.

Due to a slowdown in postings, I have been unable to properly declare my love for the dino/time traveling series Terra Nova. The show mixes action and adventure with a family drama on an epic scale with ease. It has an engaging story and likeable characters. Now that I got that out of the way, what is going on tonight at 8pm on FOX? Official Description: “Bylaw” Jim and Taylor investigate the first murder in the colony; Skye helps Josh find a way to reunite with his girlfriend from 2149; Elisabeth and Zoe try to help an unborn ankylosaurus survive.

I know, how could I pick a show on Halloween without a Holiday theme? Honestly, this year feels like it has had the longest Halloween ever. I’m ready to move on. I can only imagine how December will feel.

Tonight, just in time for Halloween we can get scared with an all new episode of The Walking Dead at 9pm on AMC. Official Description: “Save the Last One” The group await Shane’s return, unaware that he’s trapped in a school surrounded by zombies; Daryl and Andrea scour the woods for a missing person.

Last week’s episode airs before the new one at 8pm with an encore at 10pm and Talking Dead at 11pm. This week’s guests on Talking Dead  include The Guild star/creator Felicia Day, comedy actor Jon Heder and Dead executive producer (and big time movie producer) Gale Anne Hurd. Thankfully AMC Network was smart enough to already give the greenlight to the zombie series for a third season, although the pick up announcement was lacking an amount of episodes ordered. I will watch for as long as the series airs.

YouTube is responsible for making Internet video what it is today. It gave everyday people the change to publicly post videos to the world, whether it was their student film, home videos, comedy sketches or even their cats doing silly things. Well, YouTube is stepping up to the plate and attempting to hit another homerun, this time by helping to show that there is a potential future for WebTV to overthrow the real thing. This press release was posted on their blog earlier today:

Wonderful things happen when cool technology meets great entertainment. Cable television expanded our viewing possibilities from just a handful of channels to hundreds, and brought us some of the most defining media experiences of the last few decades– think MTV, ESPN and CNN. Today, the web is bringing us entertainment from an even wider range of talented producers, and many of the defining channels of the next generation are being born, and watched, on YouTube.

Today we’re announcing that even more talented creators and original entertainment will soon join YouTube’s existing channel lineup, including channels created by well-known personalities and content producers from the TV, film, music, news, and sports fields, as well as some of the most innovative up-and-coming media companies in the world and some of YouTube’s own existing partners. These channels will have something for everyone, whether you’re a mom, a comedy fan, a sports nut, a music lover or a pop-culture maven.

Our goal with this channels expansion, along with the grants and educational programs we’ve launched in the past year, is to bring an even broader range of entertainment to YouTube, giving you more reasons to keep coming back again and again. And for advertisers, these channels will represent a new way to engage and reach their global consumers.

The first of these new original channels will appear on YouTube starting next month and will continue over the next year. They’ll be available to you on any internet-connected device, anywhere in the world, with all the interactivity and social features of YouTube built right in.

You can check out a preview of their new channels by heading over here. Some stand outs in the bunch include Stan Lee’s World of Heroes, which will feature original stories about “unique characters and extraordinary individuals”, MyMusic, an interactive sitcom about a music company, and Geek & Sundry from Felicia Day.

My husband and I have a little girl. For years, we said we would never let our future child watch television. We always thought parents who let their children watch television, didn’t care about spending time with their children. We thought these parents were just neglecting their children. Well, then we had a child. The television has nothing to do with caring for or watching your child. Sometimes everyone just needs a few minutes to rest and relax and not have to think about things. We decided our directv tv was not doing any harm to our child and to be honest it was helping keep us sane. I love my child more than anything on this earth, but the thirty minutes a day she watches television gives me time to recharge my batteries. Of course, I know too much television is a bad thing. However, I have gone from thinking children should never watch television to understanding and believing everything is fine in moderation. My advice to all the parents-to-be out there is to never say you would never do something because likely you will be eating your words.

Lets jump right in.

She’ll be back? Hopefully. The latest rumor for the proposed Terminator 5 (you know, the one Universal is looking to make with Arnold and Fast Five director Justin Lin) is that Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) might be back from the grave. Or more accurately, never died in the first place as Lin is looking to explore the idea of the multiple timelines. With how far Terminator 3 and 4 strayed from what was originally established, it would make perfect sense to explore the idea of the fractured timeline.

In the about time department, the Sin City 2 script is undergoing some rewrites by William Monahan in preparation for the film to finally be shot. The original was shot back in 2005 and it is really weird that it has taken more than 6 years for the sequel to get closer to being made. The original was a spot on adaptation of the popular graphic novel, that was not only a hit creatively, but found a decent sized audience.

Lots of movement on the Two and a Half Men front, with Judy Greer cast as Ashton Kutcher’s ex-wife and the announcement of Courtney Thorne-Smith returning as Lyndsey McElroy, Jon Cryer’s Alan’s ex-love interest. It will be interesting to see how all of the changes that started with Charlie Sheen being fired will effect the show’s ninth season.

Don’t forget, there are some pretty awesome websites that let you watch Free TV Online.

New posters: What’s Your Number, Redtails, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip Wrecked (click to enlarge the posters).
