5 Shows After Dark: I Can't Wait Until People Stop Finding This Damn Boat Interesting

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 7, 2012 | Comments ()


"Mythbusters" on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. 11th season premiere. The theme is "Titanic Survival" so maybe they'll address that thing about Rose on the door in the movie Titanic that everyone gets huffy about. I figured it was pretty obvious that if both of them tried to float on the door it would sink because even though there was space to accommodate both of them there wasn't enough whatever to keep them both above water. But, you know, maybe they'll focus on the ACTUAL Titanic and not shutting up the people who complain about Leonardo DiCaprio fake-freezing to death needlessly. Seriously. If that's your biggest problem with the movie then clearly we weren't watching the same film.

"Sunday Night Football: San Diego Chargers at New Orleans Saints" on CBS at 8:30pm ET.

"Curiosity" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. They're gonna crash a plane! For real!

"Dexter" on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. So how uncomfortable are the interactions between the siblings Morgan/former real life spouses so far this season? Is it more uncomfortable to watch them interact now that they're not boning than it was to watch them interact as siblings when you knew that they were boning?

"Upstairs/Downstairs" on PBS at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere.

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