5 Shows After Dark: This Show is So Much Like My Own High School Experience

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | October 8, 2012 | Comments ()


"90210" on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere.

"Bones" on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

"Monday Night Football: Houston Texans at New York Jets" on ESPN at 8:30pm ET.

"Gossip Girl" on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Sixth season premiere. Starring the brand new Mrs.Ryan Reynolds. Because that last busty, blonde, much younger actress that he married worked out so well for him.

"Revolution" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. I watched the first episode of this and saw no reason to go back, but the first episode had an unfortunate habit of using the female main character's name (Charlie) frequently enough that I kept thinking of Charlie the Unicorn so I'm pretty sure I can't watch the show at all again unless they decide to go to Candy Mountain.

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Genevieve, you are like a magical Liopleurodon guiding us to each night's shows, and it doesn't even cost us a freakin' kidney.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Calling Genevieve a dinosaur, even a magical one, seems uncalled for.

  • CptCrckpot

    No offense intended, it was a reference to "Charlie the Unicorn".

  • Uriah_Creep

    I was being flip, but I did miss the Charlie connection in your comment. Please carry on.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    How old is that picture? Because the blonde girl at the back? Pretty sure she's a strung out porn star now.

  • Blake

    "Gossip Girl on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Sixth season premiere."

    Who watches this show?

    That photo of the GG cast makes me feel so old. Look at Taylor Momsen! Talk about the way we were...

  • Quatermain

    You get a thumbs up for that picture.
