5 Shows After Dark: Now I Just Feel Bad for Louisiana

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 27, 2013 | Comments ()


World Series Game #4 on Fox at 8:00pm ET. You guys, this World Series and Twitter are teaching me so many things about baseball. Like, did you know there are still a whole bunch of people who watch baseball on TV? Weird, right?

Boardwalk Empire on HBO at 9:00pm ET.

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

Eastbound & Down on HBO at 10:00pm ET.

The Governor’s Wife on A&E at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. The Arts and Entertainment channel continues its devotion to high quality, culturally relevant programming with this new series centered around disgraced former Louisiana Governor Edwin W. Edwards and his new wife. Governor Edwards has just recently finished a prison sentence for extortion and racketeering and his romance with the young Mrs. Edwards grew out of a pen-pal relationship. I’m sure this show will be a careful and thoughtful exploration of the kind of difficulties faced by prisoners once they’re back outside and the delicate compromises that must be made in extreme May-December romances. Obviously.

Genevieve Burgess does not understand why so many people feel comfortable having cameras around them all the time.

  • I just feel sorry for EWE's baby. His sisters are in their 60s. How messed up is that?

    Baseball on TV---well yeah!! besides without it we would have to watch some other drivel or go to Netflix. Besides we would have missed the commission of the Cardinal Sin of getting picked off of 1st base while 2 runs down and 2 out in the bottom of the ninth. That made up for that interference call in Saturdays game. Good series, even if it isn't cool to like baseball on TV.

    OK, sorry. Just had to get that out. AV Club gave The Good Wife and "A", too, dammit. I will have to find it elsewhere.

    If The Good Wife doesn't take the number one spot in the television round up this week, then I don't know what TV these guys were watching.

  • llp

    The Governor series is the fake one, right? We are still playing that game, yes?

  • emmalita

    We all wish it were so.

  • Just now, huh?

  • e jerry powell

    Don't we mean February-December? Yikes. She wasn't even born during his first or second terms, and she was only 15 when he left office for the last time.

    This is some custom-made-for-reality-TV stuff.

    I'm going to listen to a stack of Lou Reed with the TV off until time for Masters of Sex.
