5 Shows After Dark
"Dance Moms" on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. This is one of those shows here the only familiarity I have with it comes from watching "The Soup" but it seems to involve yelling at young girls, inappropriate but sparkly costumes, and overbearing mothers in a non-pageant context. So... enjoy?
"Dirty Jobs" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET.
"Shipping Wars" on A&E at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I'm getting a little sick of the "Wars" theme with naming new reality series. I'm sure the shipping business is pretty competitive and that the people working in it feel very strongly about their rivalries, but calling it a war is a little much unless someone is literally planting IEDs to take out other trucks. The same goes for cupcakes, brides, storage containers, and whatever or whoever else is supposed to be at war with each other lately.
"Swamp Loggers" on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season finale.
"Tabatha Takes Over" on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere.
