Critic's Corner Wednesday: Final Four on 'Idol'

Monday, September 5, 2011

•We're down to the Final Four on American Idol (Fox, tonight, 8 ET/PT), which means that we can now safely assume that all of the remaining contestants are actually "in it to win it."

  • Vardalos: Visits Cougar Town.

Vardalos: Visits Cougar Town.

So if a certain judge would stop screaming that inane phrase as if it were some just discovered, inscribed-on-a-golden-tablet revelation, a weary nation would no doubt be appreciative.

•Then again, as Idol's panel has proven to be incapable of self-correction, you might be better off over at TV's best traditional family sitcom, The Middle (ABC, 8 ET/PT).

Tonight, Frankie and Mike wonder where they went wrong with Axl, who has text-invited the wrong girl to the prom and plans to fix his mistake by standing her up. Kids these days.

•You can never go wrong watching Modern Family (ABC, 9 ET/PT), which has firmly established itself as television's best and most reliable comedy.

Cougar Town (ABC, 9:30 ET/PT) is more inconsistent, but it should get a boost from the guest playing Andy's (Ian Gomez) sister-in-law: My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos, who is Gomez's wife.
