On TV tonight
The Middle, 8:30 p.m., ABC Mike finds a dinosaur bone in the quarry and ends up unemployed as scientists shut down the area to study it. Great, more subliminal messages making the blue-collar workers of the world mistrust science.
Modern Family, 9 p.m., ABC Chazz Palminteri and Kristen Schaal guest star in an episode that debates just how much people can change. If you're Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien, apparently that amount is zero.
Cougar Town, 9:30 p.m., ABC We think it's hilarious a woman named Busy Philipps plays a character (Laurie) who tries to bait a friend into "diversion sex." Busy, indeed.
SEASON PREMIERE High School Reunion, 10 p.m., TV Land Former classmates from Las Vegas' Chaparral High School, Class of 1989, gather for their 20th reunion on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, but a rival high school crashes the party. These people apparently are stuck in a time warp where they still care about what happened in high school.
