Queerview Television Guide (Wednesday, April 14 2010)

All good things must come to an end* and that includes Ugly Betty which wraps up a great four season run tonight. As Betty gets ready to take a job in London, everyone will be looking to where their future leads. And it all starts with a death.

Wednesday night has got plenty of gay comedies including a new Modern Family, more of That Mitchell and Webb Look, the season finale of The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi and South Park’s 200th episode.

* Or they stop being good, limp along, wear out their welcome and then they come to an end. Thankfully, that’s not the case with Betty.

She met with Jon Stewart last night, today Rachel Maddow visits with Martha Stewart, who will teach Rachel to making a New Orleans-style shrimp along with a raspberry custard. That menu makes me wish amazing frequent Rachel Maddow Show guest and part-time New Orleans resident Melissa Harris-Lacewell could also be there.

That Mitchell and Webb Look (BBC America) 10:00 PM EDT
Interesting. I wasn’t expecting BBC America to cut the Queen Victoria sketch from last week’s premiere. Hopefully, it’ll air tonight along with the two gay sketches that originally were a part of this episode, including a Play It Again, Sam-ish tale and a documentary looking at the Snooker announcers.

Ugly Betty (ABC) 10:00 PM EST
I can’t believe Betty made sure to include a Dynasty homage before riding off into the sunset. It sounds like tonight’s wrap-up is going to be pretty gay, as well with all of the show’s current gays (Marc, Justin, Austin, fauxmosexual Suzuki St. Pierre, gay duckling Troy and soap star Spencer Cannon) appearing and looking likely to play a role in someone’s happily ever after.

In tonight’s season finale, Robert now wants to be the subject of a documentary… he knows that most documentaries take awhile to film, doesn’t he, longer than Robert’s attention span?

South Park celebrates its 200th episode by revisiting the way the iconic comedy has mocked various celebrities over the years, as a comment about Tom Cruise snowballs into a class-action lawsuit against the town.
