Wednesday TV Picks: ‘Spell-Mageddon’ on ABC Family
TV picks for Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013, include “Spell-Mageddon” on ABC Family, “Broadchurch” on BBC America and “Camp” on NBC.
Tonight in Prime Time
This loud competition series feels like a cross between a spelling bee and the show “Wipeout.” Contestants have to face obstacles (the premiere episode featured something called the “Splash Chamber”) before remembering to spell each word. Hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro. 9 p.m. Wednesday on ABC Family. (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
