TV tonight: Season finales abound

Monday, September 5, 2011

•Sure, you could watch tonight's American Idol finale (Fox, 8 ET/PT).

  • Family birthday: For Jay (Ed O'Neill.)

Or you could record it and watch something better live — like, say, the season finales of TV's best triple-play: ABC's Wednesday comedies:

•On The Middle (8 ET/PT), Brick is once again scurrying to fulfill a classroom assignment.

And that scramble may again bring Patricia Heaton's Frankie into conflict with Brick's teacher — played by Heaton's former Raymond co-star Doris Roberts.

•If The Middle is frequently undervalued, that's the cost of it airing near what is indisputably the season's best sitcom, Modern Family (9 ET/PT), which ends its year with Jay's unwanted birthday party.

That the show deserves another Emmy is obvious; the tough task will be deciding which of the stars to reward as well.
