The second season premiere of “Outrageous Kid Parties” is on TLC tonight and I’ve always hated the whole concept of expensive overdone parties for kids under the age of ten. Most of them are mentally and physically exhausted after about two hours and god forbid you drop a huge chunk of cash on a day long petting zoo rental only to have the birthday boy or girl collapse into a tantrum half way through. But my feelings may also stem from the fact that I barely remember most of my childhood birthdays beyond getting cake so I’m really glad my parents got all the decorations from Oriental Trading Company and the cake from Baskin Robbins so I don’t have to feel guilty about the fact that all the parties run together in my mind. Here’s your Wednesday night TV:
7:30pm: “Exes and Ohs” on Logo. Second season finale.
8:00pm: “Bedbug Apocalypse” on Animal Planet
“Big Brother” on CBS
“Inside Story: Dances with Wolves” on Bio. Uh… timely?
“Famous Food” on VH1
“Melissa and Joey” on ABC Family
“Minute to Win It” on NBC
“To the Mat” on CMT. Original telefilm. In this movie, an uptight business consultant (Laura Bell Bundy) helps a southern wrestler (Ricky Schroder) save his business. There are cliched culture clashes and probably a completely predictable blossoming of love. I would expect no less from CMT.

“The Hour” on BBCA. Series premiere. Dustin reviewed this earlier. My only thought was that Ben Wishaw was giving me a throbbing case of “What’s His Face” but then I googled and found out he was in Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and my brain feels way better now.
