Wednesday TV Picks: Matthew Perry's new 'Go On' on NBC
TV picks for Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012, include Matthew Perry's new "Go On" on NBC; "Baby Daddy" on ABC Family; and "Kitchen Cousins" HGTV.
Tonight in Prime Time
If you need a breather from the network's continuing Olympics coverage, stick around tonight and you'll see the pilot episode of one of NBC's new shows. Matthew Perry (above) stars as Ryan King, a sports-talk radio host who is forced to attend grief counseling before returning to work. It's a mixed bag of so-so comedy and pathos. Let's hope the show finds a better groove before its premiere. 11:04 p.m. Wednesday on NBC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
