Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Wednesday

Chris Horangic/Discovery Channel

Naked and Afraid 8 p.m., Discovery

Like Adam and Eve, the contestants are trying to survive in the wilderness in pairs. Can they weather the bugs, and the sun, and the muddy swamps? They’re facing a few weeks of hard times, like the “Survivor” competitors. Oh, yeah, and THEY’RE NAKED, PEOPLE, NAKED. Talk about your not-so-subtle gimmicks. Anyhow, in this episode our heavily pixilated players get dirty — no, not that kind of dirty — in Madagascar.

Modern Family 9 p.m., ABC

There was a time when I wouldn’t miss an episode of this series. But somewhere in Season 3, I realized it was repeating itself. And now that old episodes are plastered all over USA, the need to watch is even less imperative. That said, I never regret tuning in to catch up with the characters as they go through their familiar motions. Plus, tonight Fred Armisen, Stephen Merchant, and Patton Oswalt are guest starring.

The Americans 10 p.m., FX

Wigstock, 1981.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower 10 p.m., TMC
