5 Shows After Dark: I'm Going to Download that Modem Sound to Complete the Culture Immersion

Bones on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Temperance Brennan, a woman introduced to us a creature of pure rationality and intellectual insight, will be getting married in this episode. Not that they haven’t already committed terrible character assassination on what might have been a rather unusual and amazing woman already, but over/under on the number of times Bones acts completely counter to her stated personality in order to play up stereotypical “bride-zilla” or “wedding” hijinks?

Monday Night Football: Minnesota Vikings at NY Giants on ESPN at 8:40pm ET.

CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story on VH1 at 9:00pm ET. Original telefilm. God, I just want to watch this and remember how much I enjoyed the 90’s. Sure, the fashion kind of sucked but when everyone looked stupid, it was a lot harder to discern that you, personally, also looked stupid. And then there was that time I learned about blow-jobs from The Washington Post (absolutely true). Also the fact that I was somewhere between the ages of 3 and 13 and therefore didn’t have the kind of deeper understanding of the world that prevents one from creating nostalgic memories.

Hostages on CBS at 10:00pm ET.

Castle on ABC at 10:01pm ET.
