What to Watch on Wednesday: Loretta Lynn tribute on CMA Awards

CMA Awards (8pm, ABC) - The 44th Annual CMA awards show, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, features a tribute to Loretta Lynn performed by Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow. And get this -- Gwenyth Paltrow makes her country music singing debut. No kidding. Also, Jason Aldean duets with Kelly Clarkson, and there are other performances by Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Reba, George Strait, Sugarland, and Taylor Swift.

Circus (9pm, UNC-TV) - The latest installment finds the Big Apple Circus troupe in Virginia for the first stop on its tour, but things don't go as planned: a pivotal act is cut, forcing a last-minute reworking of the show; a company regular is diagnosed with cancer; and ticket sales are poor. The 10pm episode finds the circus at New York's Lincoln Center, where sales are brisk but the weather is uncooperative.

Law & Order: SVU (9pm, NBC) - An FBI agent (Marcia Gay Harden) is raped while working undercover, and she asks Benson to have her rape kit tested. She then quickly resumes her work to preserve her cover, and only reluctantly allows detectives to become involved in the case.

Biography: The Bee Gees (9pm, Bio Channel) - A special two-hour "Bio" on the Brothers Gibb, who were propelled to fame by the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack in the 70s. Features interviews with surviving brothers Barry and Robin (Maurice died in 2003), plus home movies and family photographs (including "little Andy," my personal favorite).

Harry Loves Lisa (10pm, TVLand) - In the first series finale, Harry takes command of his future after failing to land a job during pilot season, while Lisa must decide about corrective surgery to reduce the size of her lips.

Psych (10pm, USA) - Season 5 resumes as Despereaux (Cary Elwes) uses Shawn and Gus to escape from prison and pull off one last job. But his plan takes an unexpected turn when he's framed for murdering an attorney, so he has to ask Shawn and Gus for help.

Terriers (10pm, FX) - It's Gretchen's wedding day and Hank stumbles back into the conspiracy threatening Ocean Beach as he fights the urge to drink. Great, great show.
