5 Shows After Dark: Fiscal Year of Penny! Wait, That's Over Now Too, Isn't It?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 23, 2012 | Comments ()


"Happy Endings" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Wooooo! I love this show and now it's back! And perhaps we can stop enduring taunts from the Canadians because they got the show two days before us. And, you know, universal healthcare. But whatever, it's here now!

"Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23" on ABC at 9:30pm ET. Second season premiere.

"Hot Set" on SyFy at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. Holy crap, didn't this start like a couple weeks ago? Well, first seasons tend to be short. Anyway, if you were interested in a reality show competition about building sets for movies and/or television, I hope you tuned in while you could.

"Parenthood" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. I know some of you are big fans of the show, but mostly what you tell the world about it is how frequently it makes you cry and as an outside observer I have to tell you that's not the best selling point. I like a nice, well written drama as much as the next person, but going through half a box of kleenex a week just isn't terribly appealing.

"Sons of Anarchy" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.

    Hot Set was a really good competition show. I don't understand how SyFy keeps getting Oscar calibre judges, but the level of knowledge and professionalism is extraordinary. None of the contestants in the short run totally whiffed it, which suggests the show has fair parameters for the challenge.

    Watched (leaked) Happy Endings this morning....brilliant episode! So glad to have this show back.

    Re: Parenthood. Yes. How is that a selling point?!
