5 Shows After Dark: Tony's Getting Too Old for This Sh*t

"How I Met Your Mother" on CBS at 8:00pm ET.

"Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" on Travel at 9:00pm ET. This week Mr.Bourdain goes to Rio and will probably be salty and sarcastic about something there while eating sketchy looking street food. I'm certain the infamous Brazilian bikini will get a mention as well.

"Major Crimes" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. There's a commercial for this where Mary McDonnell's character says "I put a murderer away for life" with a kind of satisfied smirk on her face as Florence and the Machine's "Shake it Off" plays in the background. This always bugs me, because she's playing a detective so she can't put anyone away for life. She can arrest them and compile evidence and possibly even get a confession, but whether they get life in prison is up to a jury. But television crime shoes do love to play fast and loose with that whole "due process" thing. And that whole "evidence collection" thing. Fun drinking game! When watching one of these shows, do a shot every time someone picks up a piece of evidence without photographing it first.

"Castle" at 10:00pm ET.

"Richard Hammond's Crash Course" on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Second season premiere.

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