Wednesday Playlist: Not So Fun Night, Ironside Premiere; Ovation's Starry Young Doctor

Rebel Wilson

After her breakthrough performances in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, no one would question why Rebel Wilson has become a sought-after star, or why ABC would want to build a show around her ample and fearlessly outrageous talents. But Super Fun Night hasn't been much of a joyride so far.

The original pilot, which has been replaced by another episode for its official premiere (9:31/8:31c), elicited this reaction from me in the Fall Preview issue: "The grotesque extremes to which Wilson stoops to get laughs in this frenetic vehicle have a whiff of desperation. It might also be more fun if she used her authentic Aussie accent." The objection stands about her Americanized speech (her choice), and while the new opener is a little less degrading — instead of exposing her body on a city street with flashing lights on her underwear, a new gag involves an office elevator door shredding her dress, revealing her Spanx at work — it's not much funnier.

Top Chef Masters' Gail Simmons: "It's a More Relaxed Season"

Gail Simmons

Gail Simmons is moving to the head of the table on Top Chef Masters — the judges' table, that is. The longtime Top Chef judge is the new head critic of Season 5 of Masters (premieres Wednesday, 10/9c, Bravo) which means more Gail, all the time. "I'm there for every challenge now. Just what the world needs!" Simmons jokes to TVGuide.com. "Me in every single episode! What the world was waiting for."

The Food & Wine editor's presence isn't the only change to the show. Season 5, which includes such chefs as David Burke, Douglas Keane and Top Chef: Las Vegas runner-up Bryan Voltaggio, also features a brand new online companion show on BravoTV.com — not unlike Top Chef proper's Last Chance Kitchen — dubbed Battle of the Sous Chefs. Hosted by Hugh Acheson, the show will feature the 13 Masters' right-hand men and women cooking to secure... read more

Top Chef's Sarah: I Feel Like I Won Too

Sarah Grueneberg

Sarah Grueneberg came up short to Paul on the Top Chef finale, but if you ask her, she did win. "I feel like I won too," she tells TVGuide.com. "I truly believe that. I woke up [the day after the finale aired] with this great calm. There is no more nervousness and nothing to be ashamed about. I'm really excited for my career now. It was overall a positive experience. I can't be more proud of how I did. If I'm going to be second, I couldn't think of a better way and a better place to be." But what part of her final meal cost her the title and $125,000? See what she thinks below. Plus: What's up with her and Beverly?

Top Chef's Lindsay: I Didn't Take Enough Risks

Lindsay Autry

When does frozen mousse trump perfectly cooked halibut? When you're on Top Chef! Despite her nearly inedible, ice-hard confection, Sarah — with some major backing from Tom Colicchio — made it to the finale with Paul over her pal Lindsay Autry, whose error-free, albeit less creative, dish sent her packing. "I think they were really nitpicking at that point and it came down to doing something risky like what she did against me being great, but not risky enough," Lindsay tells TVGuide.com. "I know I didn't make any mistakes, but I guess they wanted to see more." Was she surprised that her well-made dish lost to such shoddy execution? Find out below.
