Metro’s Wednesday night TV breakdown.
‘Survivor: Blood Vs. Water’
REALITY. In a new twist on the tired old formula, in this season of “Survivor” returning contestants are pitted against their loved ones. We wonder who is going to win: a grizzled old island vet who’s known what it’s like to be close to drinking his own urine for survival, or his mom?
Season Premiere, 8 p.m., CBS
‘Earthflight: A Nature Special Presentation’
NATURE. This special documents the flight of cranes and geese over Venice, Rome, Dover and Holland, among other international locales. That’s a lot of international bird poop to dodge.
8 p.m., PBS
‘Toddlers & Tiaras’
REALITY. Tonight, the prepubescent beauty queens compete in a “My Pet and Me” pageant in Tennessee. Great, now these people are committing child abuse AND animal abuse.
8 p.m., TLC
