Wednesday is my favorite night of TV during the summer. Last night I watched Wipeout, the premiere of I Survived a Japanese Game Show, an episode of Globe Trekker on PBS (whoops, forgot about Chess on the other local PBS station), and the latest episode of Top Chef Masters.

Zap2It posted a recap of last night’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance.

The CW announced its fall schedule. Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill will swap timeslots on Monday nights, and Smallville moves to Fridays.

The Emmys have moved back to their original September 20 air date after realizing that MTV had already scheduled its Video Music Awards for September 13.
