For Wednesday, August 31st 2011 LA TV Insider Examiner recommends:
Melissa & Joey (ABC Family, 8pm) – “The Other Longo” – Joe’s little brother (Joe Lawrence’s real life little brother Matthew) comes to town and is attracted to Mel (Melissa Joan Hart).
Royal Pains (USA, 9pm) – “A Little Art, A Little Science” – An art collector (guest star Wilmer Valderrama) faints while viewing a piece of art he has pursued for years. But it may be something more than just excitement.
Rescue Me (FX, 10pm) – “Vows” – This is the episode we are personally choosing to believe is the series finale for the seven-year post-9/11, post traumatic stress disorder drama. Colleen (Natalie Distler) walks down the aisle with her father Tommy (Denis Leary) at her side, and Sheila (Callie Thorne) gets drunk enough for the entire Gavin clan during the reception, giving a hilarious toast and convincing Tommy to make a big personal step. But it can’t all be fun and games (that would be a completely different show), as Tommy and his guys get called to what will be one last fire—for the show. And maybe for one of them.
Hot In Cleveland (TV Land, 10pm) – “Elka’s Big Day” – In the second season finale the long-talked-about wedding is finally upon us, but first the women go through a Hangover-style adventure when they wake up in the house full of frat boys and an iguana, with no recollection of Elka (Betty White)’s bachelorette party. And in true form, Elka is missing. So maybe the wedding won’t happen after all…
Necessary Roughness (USA, 10pm) – “A Wing and a Player” – In being asked to tackle a playoff curse that has haunted the Hawks for years, Dani (Callie Thorne) turns her attention to a self-destructive mascot (guest star Austin Basis) instead. You can read more from him here. Also, TK (Mehcad Brooks) may meet his match, and Dani’s relationship progresses.
