5 Shows After Dark: Dear CW, Facial Scars on a Hot Dude Don't Make Him Beastly

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 18, 2012 | Comments ()


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

"Beauty and the Beast" on The CW at 9:00pm ET. I love how The CW is always like a season or so behind the curve on some of these weird television trends. Like a season after "Once Upon a Time" and "Grimm" hit the other networks, The CW gets on board with their own fairytale adaptation. Like they've got someone in their office whose job is just to sit around watching the TV other people put out and then go "Hey, that seems like a great idea!" and then figure out how they can rip it off. Anyway, that classic ode to how beautiful women need to look underneath the gruff exterior to see the man they can fall in Stockholm Syndrome with has been updated for the modern era if you're interested in that sort of thing.

"Project Runway" on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. 10th season finale.

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" on Comedy Central at 11:00pm ET. Tonight's guest will be President Barack Obama. I'm really hoping he's been watching some of the recent election coverage and either responds to some of Jon's criticism or zings him back a bit.

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

  • BierceAmbrose

    Kristen Kruek back on my TV = good.

    Kristen Kruek less uncomfortably close to jailbait-y = better.

  • Sirilicious

    I wonder how long people will keep ridiculing it just cause he's a pretty scarred boy. The beast part of the title is not because of his face, but because he turns feral when he's excited, courtesy of the army's DNA tinkering or somesuch. It's got plenty of things worthy of ridicule, but this particular complaint isn't one of them.

    It's not good, but it could easily work as a guilty pleasure. I think the premise of Smallville had more inherent ridiculousness, for example.

  • NateMan

    If I could get that scar without the required physical and emotional trauma that go with it I'd be all for it. I'd look badass. Big guy, shaved head, beard, tattoos, and facial scar? The college girls would swoon. I wouldn't do anything about it, being happily married, but it's never a bad thing to be swoonable.

  • mrcreosote

    This show makes me sad. Because if that guy is a "beast" I'm some sort of shelf fungus or slime mold or something.

  • Sirilicious

    Don't worry, he's not supposed to look like a beast. He just turns into one if you rub his belly the wrong way. I bet you are at least a sea cucumber, compared to him.

  • Kate at June

    I left the CW on after The Vampire Diaries was on and am kinda watching this Beast show.

    But it is so, so boring.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Kristen Kreuk is so pretty. So, so very pretty.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    But so, so empty.

  • BierceAmbrose

    You say that like it's a bad thing.

  • Lauren Mckenzie

    Politics = crack for me, so I'm super jazzed about Obama being on The Daily Show. No chance in hell Romney would go toe-to-toe with Jon Stewart. Can you imagine? No. No you cannot. Dude can't even face going on The View...

  • John

    It just sounds better than Beauty and The Guy With The Scar.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'd totally watch Beauty and Scar, though. That fucking lion was terrifying.

  • Groundloop

    How about Black Beauty and Scar? A horse and lion escape from a circus and bond in the process, forming the most unlikely friendship since The Odd Couple.

    Guest spots to be played by:

    Rin Tin Tin
    Mr. Ed
    The Littlest Hobo
    The Shaggy D.A.
    Annie's Boobs
    Mr. Horse as a potential love interest
    Spongebob Squarepants
    and the Dolphin from Sea Hunt

    Wacky hijinks ensue.

  • mc-rox

    I am disappoint! No Snowy from Tintin!

    Upvoted :)

  • Mrs. Julien

    You're a wacky hijink.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    You took the words right out of my mouth. All the upvotes, man.

  • Mrs. Julien

    And yet I see no upvotes.
