    Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Wednesday


    American Horror Story: Coven 10 p.m., FX

    First we had a haunted house, then an asylum, and now we’re going to get a bunch o’ witches. Jessica Lange (pictured) is back as the Supreme of the Salem coven, women who left New England for New Orleans to escape persecution in the 1800s. There’s a coven war brewing between Lange’s ladies and the voodoo enchantresses led by Angela Bassett. Also in the cast for this season – or, should I say, for this miniseries: Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Emma Roberts, and Evan Peters.

    Full Circle 9 p.m., DirecTV


    Filmmaker and playwright Neil LaBute, of “In the Company of Men” and “Your Friends & Neighbors,” wrote this 10-episode series. Each half-hour takes place in the same restaurant, with two characters having dinner. One of them then appears in the next half-hour, eating with someone else. The script is filled with LaBute’s trademark provocative dialogue – he knows the hurtful power of words – and the big issues include adultery and homophobia. The cast includes Minka Kelly, Julian McMahon, David Boreanaz, Billy Campbell, Kate Walsh, Cheyenne Jackson, and Ally Sheedy. (Pictured, from left, Boreanaz and McMahon.)
