Wednesday TV Picks: ‘Suburgatory’ season finale on ABC
TV picks for Wednesday, April 17, 2013, include the season finale of “Suburgatory” on ABC, “Nature” on KCTS and “The Americans” on FX.
Tonight in Prime Time
Another quriky sitcom that excels due to its top-notch cast. Jane Levy stars as Tessa Altman, a teenager who moved to suburbia from New York City with her dad (Jeremy Sisto). And while the residents of Chastwin (including Cheryl Hines, Ana Gasteyer, Alan Tudyk and Allie Grant) at first appeared to be odd/cute suburbanites, as the second season progressed, they’ve gotten downright strange. Still, this is a clever, well-written comedy, that ABC would be smart to renew. One-hour season finale 8 p.m. Wednesday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
