Jenny’s TV Guide: Wednesday April 9

Wednesday marks the season finale of three shows, all at 10/9c. On SciFi is Destination Truth, on TV Land is High School Reunion (which my sister is ADDICTED to) and on Discovery is Smash Lab (which my husband loves).

Also tonight is the 150-minute American Idol: Idol Gives Back special, starting at 7:30/6:30c. Bono, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Fergie, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Annie Lennox, John Legend and Snoop Dogg are among the celebrity participants scheduled to appear. Last year, the special raised $76 million, so why not try and top that this year?

    I have been watching Smash Lab, but I have been disappointed. Some of thier ideas were nonsensical (like trying to wrap a house in foam to save it from forest fires) and others have been solved already. An example is trying to keep traffic from crossing a median and hitting on-coming traffic and still keep the occupants of the car safe. Race tracks have the “safer barrier” that does that.
