Viewers who haven’t caught “The Middle,” on ABC (8 p.m. Wednesdays) can meet the Heck family in past edisodes on the Hallmark Channel at 9 p.m. weeknights.

One of the best things about the sitcom is Eden Sher, who plays the awkward but ever hopeful teenage daughter.

Snagging the part was no walk in the park, said Sher, who went through a series of auditions with little encouragement until she finally landed a tryout in front of network executives.

“I was, like, ‘OK, they’re screen testing me, maybe they DO actually like me. I’m reading these sides (lines) for the 14th time.’ The two other girls (auditioning) were 11 and 12.

“And I was like, ‘Clearly they want, whatever, an actual 12-year-old, and I’m 17 … there’s no way I can actually look this young. It was the best wrong I’ve ever been.”
