The Wednesday Playlist: Broadchurch, Key & Peele, Survivor

Olivia Colman

The summer's most gripping series (until Breaking Bad started back up) rushes toward a shattering conclusion as BBC America's Broadchurch presents its penultimate episode (Wednesday, 10/9c), with broken lives and aching hearts on all fronts — including the ailing Hardy's (David Tennant), who won't let his latest collapse keep him from pursuing little Danny's killer: "Don't tell me what my limits are," he barks. As more skeletons are unearthed in this seaside community (and let's hope the mysterious Susan's poor dog isn't one of them), the toll of secrets and suspicion weighs heavy: "Once it's got its claws into you, it never lets go," says one of the many suspects whose world has been rocked by the tragic events and poisonous fallout. Don't let next week's denouement escape you as the new broadcast season gets underway with all of its bells and whistles.

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."

Hosted by Hugh Acheson, the show will feature the 13 Masters' right-hand men and women cooking to secure... read more

This week, Game of Thrones shocked and shattered viewers with its long-anticipated Red Wedding episode, "The Rains of Castemere."

Jimmy Kimmel Live correspondents asked viewers where they were when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby was born (even though the birth hasn't happened yet).

The Taste's French Chef Ludo Lefebvre: It's Game On!

Ludovic Lefebvre

"Trust me. It's game on!"

Chef Ludo Lefebvre is psyched for viewers to watch Tuesday's episode of The Taste (8/7c, ABC), when the culinary reality series shifts from the audition to competition rounds. Now that he and his fellow mentors -- Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson and Brian Malarkey -- have chosen their four-person teams of home cooks and professional chefs, it's time to pit them against each other.

Matt's Guide to Wednesday TV: Football, Dancing, Damages and Bogie-Bacall Magic

Rose Byrne and Ryan Phillippe

When the ratings for tonight's TV are tabulated on Thursday, there's little doubt what will top the charts — and it won't be the doings in Charlotte on the second night of the Democratic National Convention. (It won't be Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, either, for which civilization can breathe a sigh of relief.)

One of TV's biggest draws returns with the official NFL Kickoff 2012 on NBC (coverage starts at 7:30/6:30c), with the opening game of the season a rematch of the Giants and Cowboys. read more
