5 Shows After Dark: If You're Not Doing This While You Watch, You're Wrong

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 3, 2013 | Comments ()


Parks and Recreation on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Just in case you forgot last week, this is back on TV now.

The Vampire Diaries on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere.

The Millers on CBS at 8:30pm ET. Series premiere. Good news: Margo Martindale and Will Arnett will be back on your TV again on a regular basis. Bad news: All the commercials for this look pretty terrible. If you’re going to give it a shot, I wish you the best of luck.

Sean Saves the World on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is Sean Hayes new show, and let’s all cross our fingers that he manages to get a recurring role for Megan Mullaly. Then we can all relive the parts of Will and Grace that we actually liked without all the other parts getting in the way.

Scandal on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Third season premiere. It’s so ridiculous that this is only the third season when I think of how many plots they’ve burned through already. I just wonder how long it can last, but I’m along for the ride every crazy minute they get. Liv’s gorgeous white suits and absurdly impractical wine glasses compel me.

Genevieve Burgess could never manage wine glasses with those big balloon bowls and whisper thin rims. Two glasses in and it would be disaster and blood everywhere.

    I am famous amongst my friends for my inability to eat or drink anything without a bit of it landing in my lap or down my shirt, which makes watching Scandal quite stressful. I just *can't believe* that she could possibly wear that much white and drink that much wine without ending up looking like the rains of castamere had just passed through...

    I didn't realise how much I'd missed Parks and Rec till getting to watch it last week. I'm not gonna try to hide it, there were tears when April read her letter. The amount of emotional investment in those characters that I have is simply unhealthy....

    ... That said, Chris and Anne can not be gone fast enough, I love Chris on his own but Anne is like infecting him with her boringness.

    Camille wine glasses...Crate & Barrel.

    Ditto. It makes re-patriating seem like a worthy idea.
