The Wednesday Playlist: Milestones for Middle, CSI; World Series Begins

Aw, heck. Is it really worth making a fuss over The Middle's 100-episode milestone? It hardly seems in character for a family like the Hecks of Orson, Indiana. When she's reminded that they volunteered to drive a giant cow float in Orson's centennial parade, Frankie (Patricia Heaton) whines, "This is what happens when we drink: We sign up for stupid committees. Or get Brick."

But as Orson itself expresses in a self-deprecating new town motto: "Why not?" This episode (Wednesday, 8/7c, ABC) truly is cause for celebration, as TV's most heartfelt and hilariously relatable family sitcom reflects on what brought Frankie and Mike (Neil Flynn) to Orson in the first place, while giving their lovably imperfect offspring a chance to shine in clever-to-wacky subplots.

Keck's Exclusives First Look: A Coven of Divas

Despite what you may have heard about Patti LuPone, the Broadway star won't be playing a witch on American Horror Story: Coven, which premieres Oct. 9 on FX. "Patti will be playing someone who will go up against [Jessica Lange's supreme witch] Fiona and her daughter Cordelia [Sarah Paulson]," says executive producer Tim Minear. LuPone's Joan Ramsey becomes a thorn in the ­women's sides when she and her sexy son move next door to Fiona's boarding school for young witches. "Patti's character is a bit of a holy roller who has recently lost her husband under suspicious circumstances," Minear says.
