What’s new tonight:

The Soup (E!) New Night: Of all E!’s questionable programming decisions, moving Friday-night mockery staple The Soup to Wednesdays is right up there with Kendra, Ice Loves Coco and the application of “news” to any show on the network. ---Wednesday is the most overloaded TV night of the week; piling on another appointment series is like demanding more flavors of Faygo at your neighborhood convenience store—you only need so many. Still, The Soup, and host Joel McHale (who may or may not be out of a job on NBC’s Community next fall), is Essential Television, and who watches “live” TV anymore, anyway? Who knows when the hell Chelsea Lately airs? Certainly not Chelsea Handler.

I Hate My Teenage Daughter (Fox) Series Debut: Fox was on a respectable sitcom mini-streak with Raising Hope (because it’s funny) and New Girl (because it’s … something), but that all ends with I Hate My Teenage Daughter, a laugh-tracked(!) throwback the network seems to have picked up at an ABC Family yard sale. Jaime Pressly plays a slightly toned-down, possibly medicated version of her Joy character from My Name Is Earl, but now her high-pitched redneckette is the divorcee mom to a slutbag mean girl—imagine Reba with the subtle Southern subtext replaced with an apparent line-yelling quota. Prediction: Dead by Christmas.

Psych (USA) Shatner! What else do you need to know? How William Shatner’s guest character falls into the grand narrative arc of Psych? Bitch, please.

Also new tonight:
Survivor: South Pacific, Grammy Nominations Concert Live (CBS); Christmas at Rockefeller Center, Harry’s Law, Law & Order: SVU (NBC); The X Factor (Fox); America’s Next Top Model (The CW); Hot In Cleveland, The Exes (TV Land); Ghost Hunters (Syfy); The Real World (MTV); The Ultimate Fighter, Blue Mountain State (Spike); Whitechapel (BBC America); Mythbusters (Discovery); Ricochet (TNT); Top Chef: Texas, Work of Art (Bravo); Baseball Wives (VH1); American Horror Story (FX)

The Shat hits the Psych, tonight:
