What to Watch on Wednesday: 'Modern Family' sends out a clown

Survivor: One World (8pm, CBS) - No chance tonight's episode is as bat-poo crazy as last week, with Colton's stunning tribal council move. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Modern Family (9pm, ABC) - Cameron has a reunion with his estranged clown partner at a funeral for their former mentor, and Phil gets bullied by a real estate rival when he tries to land an important listing. All the ABC comedies are new tonight. "Happy Endings" is always especially joyous.

Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis (9pm, Bravo) - In this spin-off of "Flipping Out,"  Jeff Lewis revamps homes while also trying to transform the personal lives of the people who live in them. Also stars Jeff's assistant Jenni Poulos and his housekeeper Zoila Chavez.

Criminal Minds (9pm, CBS) - Married couples living in Seattle are murdered. Meanwhile, Garcia fears a proposal from Kevin is imminent.

Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy (9pm, History) - Larry profiles folks committed to catching various animals and critters. Among his stops is a visit with a man who uses GPS-enhanced dogs to track feral pigs.

Psych (10pm, USA) - Shawn and Gus go undercover to investigate an attack on a reality-TV contestant who appeared on a dating show in which men compete for the affections of a woman they've crossed paths with, but never actually met.

Face Off (10pm, Syfy) - In the Season 2 finale, the three finalists must each create three original characters from a specific genre that will perform in a routine at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, California.

What to Watch on Friday: Cable Guy's smarts are tested and Eureka returns

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader (8pm, Fox) - There's a serious danger of folksy redneck overload tonight, when Larry the Cable Guy is a guest on this Jeff Foxworthy game show.

Eureka (9pm, Syfy) - Tonight's the premiere of the second half of the third season (got that?!) of this hit SyFy (formerly SciFi) show. The mid-season cliffhanger of whether or not Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) is actually fired will be answered tonight.

The Soup (10pm, E!) - If last week was any indication, Joel McHale will likely be making fun of over-the-top Michael Jackson coverage. Remember fans, he's mocking the talking heads, not the King of Pop.

Larry the Cable Guy will NOT juice you up

Try to control the shock and disappointment this will no doubt bring on, but comedian Larry the Cable Guy's May 16 show at Cary's Booth Amphitheatre has been canceled. Refunds are available at point of purchase; phone and online orders will be automatically credited.

No reason was given for the cancelation, but Cary isn't the only LtCG date to get scotched without explanation. A Thursday performance in Great Falls, Mont., has also been called off.

Comedy Central Roasts 'Larry the Cable Guy'

Remember when "Celebrity Roast" meant Dean Martin sipping a cocktail while Don Rickles made mafia jokes about Frank Sinatra? Well, now it means Lisa Lampanelli making cringe-inducing jokes about Chris Brown beating Rihanna in the name of saluting Larry the Cable Guy.

Yes, Larry the Cable Guy. The man who earns millions making Southerners look like backward morons is being honored tonight by Comedy Central.  (And if you're questioning the Roast-worthiness of Larry, consider that Larry stars in an upcoming animated series on Comedy Central.)

Larry the Cable Guy will get 'r done in Cary

When Cary's Koka Booth Amphitheatre at Regency Park announced last month it was changing promoters and going with a firm that does a lot of comedy and theater, that signaled a change in booking direction. And now we have further evidence, Booth's first big-time comedy show. Blue Collar Comedy regular Larry the Cable Guy will perform at Booth on May 21, according to Pollstar listings.
