5 Shows After Dark: So Much Promotion, So Little Interest

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 21, 2012 | Comments ()


"Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs" on Comedy Central at 8:00pm ET. You know what I love about the title of this special? That the word "awareness" does not appear in it. The NFL is doing their annual breast cancer "awareness" month and every time I hear about that particular program I think "Aren't we all aware of breast cancer? No one says 'my friend was diagnosed with breast cancer' only to be met with blank stares and someone asking them what that is." I know they also sell some NFL licensed pink shit but I've heard the percentage of the money from the pink NFL stuff that actually goes towards breast cancer is not particularly impressive. Anyway. Comedy Central trusts that you're aware of autism, and I appreciate that.

"Revenge" on ABC at 9:00pm ET.

"The Walking Dead" on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

"Copper" on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. I swear, it feels like this show has already been on for two seasons just based on how many commercials I see for it. While they have piqued my interest about what's with the creepy little girl in the white dress, I still haven't worked up enough interest to actually watch more than four minutes at a time. Oh well.

"Homeland" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET.

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

    Why in the name of the FSM do they air Copper on Sunday night when EVERY OTHER CABLE NETWORK busts out its big guns?

    Try Saturday or some other night, guys. I might watch it if your show weren't up against Breaking Bad.

    And Homeland.
    And Boardwalk Empire.

    I really want to like Copper more. But too much of the little girl's story line is destroying the show for me. Yes it's sad, and also creepy, but I just don't care, she needs to go away.

  • I broke up with this show after 4 episodes and have been relying on a friend for recaps that feature everything but the girl. Wasted potential.

  • I really like Copper. It's a lot better than this season's Boardwalk Empire.

    No love for Happy Endings? The 3rd Season Premiere's Tonight at 8:30 on CityTV.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    According to my sources, the third season premiere is on ABC Tuesday at 9pm. Either they're re-airing the second season or you're a non-United Statesian.

    I guess we Canadians are blessed with early Happy Endings (and will continue to be as 8:30 on Sunday is it's regular time slot on CityTV).

    Not surprising. You are descended from the French, after all.

  • kilmo

    Woot! Go Canada!!!
    Also, hopefully this year they'll air episodes in the proper order.

    Those hot pink armbands and towels the NFLers are playing keep confusing me. Then I remember. Then I roll my eyes.
