Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Wednesday, October 19, 2011

October 19, 2011 by  

Does anyone else love ABC as much as I do on Wednesday nights? First, they have their comedy lineup of THE MIDDLE, SUBURGATORY, MODERN FAMILY, and HAPPY ENDINGS (which is a-mah-zing!) and then they bring the drama with one of my new favorite shows of the season, REVENGE! Will you be watching any of those with me?

Plus, there’s a special Halloween themed episode of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS on ABC Family! You can’t go wrong tonight!

Read on for much more!

But with a new girl in town to challenge Ali for Queen Bee dominance, Spencer possibly losing the class president election along with her parents’ approval, and a shocking revelation for Aria about her father – there may be more to worry about than finding the perfect costume.
