All your ABC favorites like Modern Family and Cougartown are on hiatus tonight but for good reason! The 43rd Annual CMA Awards hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are taking their place just for this evening. The hosts are also part of a huge slate of performers including Dave Matthews, Tim McGraw, Brooks and Dunn, Kenny Chesney and many more.

But, if country music isn’t your thing—don’t fret—because after taking a break for a few weeks to make room for the World Series—Glee makes its triumphant return! Rachel goes up against Kurt in a “diva off” for a solo while the group must raise money for a wheel-chair accessible bus so Artie can go to regionals! Oh, and Sue (the amazing Jane Lynch) has to hold auditions for new Cheerios now that she’s kicked Quinn off the squad!

Top Chef: Las Vegas may not have any musical interludes but it was another show that took a breather last week. It’s back tonight with just six cheftestants left and they’re challenged to create a hotel-themed bed and breakfast dish with Nigella Lawson as the guest judge. Will Robin finally go home tonight? Enough is enough!
