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.

    HIMYM sucks balls now

    It really does. Sometime mid-way through season 5 I seriously contemplated just giving up and watching the series finale just to see who the damn mother is. But then we got rid of cable, and here I am still watching it.

    I've come to the conclusion that the entire purpose of Partners is to make 2Broke Girls look good by comparison. Seriously, Partners would make Whitney look good by comparison.

    Aw, Tony really is getting too old for it; he still seems to enjoy it though, which is always good.

    It drives me crazy when people bitch about how "mean he is". Or when they get all "Team Paula, what did she ever do to him?"

    I would still watch Bourdain even if he opts to get a Brazilian bikini wax, while sampling the local street hot-dog vendor's delectable and yet always questionable specialties of course!

  • e jerry powell

    But will you actually turn on CNN or HLN to watch it? Three more weeks on Travel Channel, then it's off to the land where journalism went to die.

  • Maguita NYC

    Enough with the promise of torture already!!!

  • Natallica

    I think that Tony is like good wine: the older, the better. Except he doesn't go tastier, he goes more and more acid. So... it would be like when wine is SO old it actually becomes vinegar. Anyway, I love him

    Unfortunately, Monday night is becoming "watch the stuff from Sunday night that I didn't get to watch yet" night. And/or football night.
