Stranded 10 p.m., Syfy
This is the “Blair Witch” reality show. Each week, a team of “paranormal enthusiasts” (is that what they call actors now?) record themselves while they are “stranded” (is that what they call acting work now?) in a “haunted” (a.k.a. special effects?) “location” (set?). On Wednesday night’s episode, a “family” “hoping” to “make contact” with a “deceased loved one” spends a week at an abandoned penitentiary in West Virginia.
My Strange Addiction 10 and 10:30 p.m., TLC
This show is, yes, you guessed it, strangely addictive. It makes “Hoarding: Buried Alive” look like small potatoes. I wrote about it in this column last week, but I can’t stop myself from mentioning it once again because, well . . . a woman who eats a jar of clay facial mask every day? A man who is sexually attracted to balloons? Plus, a classic repeat at 10:30: The lady who stuffs her bra with dryer sheets, which she chews on for up to 10 hours a day. Step right up, ladies and gentlemen.
Duck Dynasty 10 p.m., A&E
But will Ping survive the Moldavian massacre?
American Idol 8 p.m., Channel 25
They call the hot air Mariah.
Conan 11 p.m., TBS
