5 Shows After Dark: Good To See Haley Joel Osment Again Too

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 11, 2012 | Comments ()


"Last Resort" on ABC at 8:00pm ET.

"The Vampire Diaries" on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere.

"The Vice Presidential Debates" on ABC, Fox, CBS, NBC, and PBS at 9:00pm ET. This month I happen to be working a show at a local theater and because of this my working hours have me out of the house all night. This happens to coincide with all the presidential debates. I feel a little guilty at how gleeful it makes me that while these things are going on I have no access to a television or social media. The rest of you out there can fire up your outrage generators and set them to either "exhausted irony" or "spitting mad" depending on where your mental state is at this point in the election season.

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" on FX at 10:00pm ET. Eighth season premiere. I'm not a fan of this show, because I really did try to watch it and just ended up hating all the characters with the fire of a thousand suns, but their promos for this season were pretty cool. So, there's that.

"The League" on FX at 10:30pm ET. Fourth season premiere.

Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Haley Joel chubbed up, didn't he? Apparently he stopped seeing dead people and started seeing cheeseburgers.

  • Fat Mac

    he taked on mass

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Was I mistaken, or did Paul Ryan repeatedly try to do a Scanner on Joe Biden with his sad, sad elf eyes?

  • Jezzer

    The whole point of "It's Always Sunny" is that the characters are irredeemable assholes. Just like "Girls," only it's not intended to be endearing and empowering.

  • alwaysanswerb

    Having finally watched "Girls," after months of reading people's foaming at the mouth opinions about it, I can't say I picked up on any part of the show that indicated that the characters were supposed to be endearing and empowering.

  • Jezzer

    To be fair, I base that impression mostly on fan reaction, although I truly, honestly don't believe that the show creators would argue with it.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I get that they're supposed to be assholes. But they're SUCH assholes that I actually have no connection or sympathy with them at all and don't find their antics amusing because I wish they'd just all die in a fire. Like the later seasons of "House" where you really had to start asking why ANYONE still hung around this man who made it clear that he had no problems destroying the lives of people who loved him as some kind of intellectual exercise.

  • Jezzer

    I like it because they tend to get their karmic due before each episode ends. In a world where horrible people seem to never get dick-punched by life, it's nice to see a show where assholes routinely get to watch their dreams crumble.

    Well, yeah, a lot of innocent people tend to get caught in the crossfire on the show, but goshdarnit, Rickety Cricket is funny enough that I'll let it slide.

  • logar

    That pic looks like someone beat Tyler Labine with the ugly stick. Ouch.

  • APOCooter

    Man, what the hell happened to Haley Joel Osment's face?

  • Puddin


  • That is the funniest thing I've read today.

  • Gavin S.

    He does look kinda like fat Mac.

  • LittleKidLover

    How the shit can you hate IASIP. The characters are great.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I like the character of Ron Swanson. That doesn't mean I watch P&R, because I hate all the rest of the characters on that show.

  • can i triple down vote this please?

  • Reginald

    You're a bad person.
