It's not really a big Wednesday, I'm just making a reference to the obscure and awful surfer flick starring Jan Michael Vincent and Gary Busey. I've got a major case of the munchies as I write this so tonight's primetime is all about food for me.

8:00pm Back To You FOX - Series Premiere - oops, NOT[TD]. I'm not so sure I want to give Kelsey Grammar another chance on network TV. I would like to watch Fred Willard but am not sure I can stand the rest of this formulaic 3 camera sitcom.

8:00pm Pushing Daisies ABC - Auspicious debut last week. TV Junkie 8:00pm Pick.
