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.
