Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Wednesday, January 9. All times are Eastern.  

Top pick

You’re The Worst (FXX, 10 p.m.): We are absolutely not ready to say goodbye to You’re The Worst. For four terrific seasons, FXX’s “anti-romantic comedy” has given us one of TV’s sharpest looks at love, friendship, mental health, recovery, and being kinda terrible but also great, and tonight’s season premiere marks the beginning of the end for Gretchen, Jimmy, Edgar, and Lindsay. We are not ready for the end, we simply are not—but we are absolutely ready to watch these people attempt to plan a wedding.

Raise a glass of Trash Juice, grab some breakfast nachos, and settle in, Vikram Murthi’s recap awaits you on the other side.


Regular coverage

Vikings (History, 9 p.m.)
Modern Family (ABC, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

Project Runway All Stars (Lifetime, 9 p.m.): The final season of All Stars premiered last week, and we’re ready to be dazzled by color, concept, and construction. This year’s cast includes seven designers from the U.S. and, most intriguingly, seven designers from the international versions of Runway, meaning we get the benefit of seeing people who know how the game works go through it all again while also enjoying a bunch of new faces and talents. Catch last week’s premiere if you’ve got a minute; if not, Runway isn’t a show that demands a ton of context. You can simply start with this one and (wait for it) make it work.
