Top TV Picks for Wednesday
CBS helps honor "The King of Country" with tonight's music special "George Strait: ACM Artist of the Decade All Star Concert" (8 p.m. ET/PT). Taped in Las Vegas in April, the concert is scheduled to include performances by Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Lee Ann Womack, among others.
If country music doesn't appeal, you can always turn to ABC to see people get bounced, slammed and thrown into mud and water in the returning summer series "Wipeout" (8 p.m. ET/PT). John Henson, John Anderson and Jill Wagner host this show, which sends contestants over, under and mostly off an extreme obstacle course. The contest is amusing; the hosts much less so - so let's hope they've learned the value of obstacle course silence.
ABC follows Wipeout with the debut of The Goode Family (ABC, 9 p.m. ET/PT), an animated sitcom from "King of the Hill" creator Mike Judge. This time, he focuses on a family who always try to do their socially correct best - and somehow always get it wrong.
"The Unusuals" (ABC, 10 p.m. ET/PT) leans far too heavily on quirks, which is one reason it won't be back come fall. But this is summer, and considering the lack of new options, you may want to watch for stars Amber Tamblyn and Jeremy Renner alone.
