5 Shows After Dark: This is Me, Pandering.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 25, 2012 | Comments ()


"Grey's Anatomy" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. So far this season's been really dark. I mean, so I hear. Whatever, I watch "Grey's Anatomy" and y'all can deal with it. Besides, no one's having sex with a ghost this season and even if they were, when "American Horror Story" did it everyone thought it was great.

"Parks and Recreation" at 9:30pm ET.

"Elementary" on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Anyone watching this? How's it going? I still think they missed a golden opportunity to cast Lucy Liu as Sherlock because Johnny Lee Miller seems a bit too spazzy to pull it off. And, of course, for a very small but vocal segment of the television viewing public, the whole series invites comparisons to the British edition of "updating Sherlock Holmes to modern times." But let's face it, those of you who have watched the British "Sherlock" aren't CBS's target audience because most of you probably don't qualify for Medicare.

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

"Misfits" on Logo at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.

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