WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30
Farmer Wants a Wife (The CW, 9 p.m. ET) (Pictured)
Series Premiere. Ten city women leave their homes and lifestyles behind to compete for the affections of a hunky Missouri farmer in this new reality series. That doesn't simply mean looking sweet and sexy – they also have to master the farmer's chores, or at least convince him that they enjoy trying to do so. This is yet another reality franchise that has already enjoyed significant success in other countries.
Carrier (PBS, 9 p.m. ET, check local listings)
Two Hours. PBS' ten-part documentary series about life on board the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz during a six-month deployment to the Persian Gulf continues with two new hours.
Boston Legal (ABC, 10 p.m. ET)
As Boston Legal settles into its new Wednesday time period, Denny Crane (William Shatner) falls for a pretty cattle rancher (played by Christine Ebersole) who hires him to sue the FDA over cloned meat. James Spader and Candice Bergen star. Guest stars include Henry Gibson as Judge Clark Brown and Shelley Berman as Judge Robert Sanders.
