5 Shows After Dark: Dead in the Water

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 10, 2013 | Comments ()


"18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards" on The CW at 8:00pm ET.

"30 Rock" on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Seventh season winter premiere.

"Last Resort" on ABC at 8:00pm ET. First season winter premiere. It's already been announced this hasn't been picked up so I guess it's more like "No Resort" am I right? High five! Ok, that was mean. This is episode eleven, which means you get two more before this show is gone forever and you have to find a new way to fill that Andre Braugher shaped hole in your life.

"Grey's Anatomy" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season winter premiere. Just when I start thinking "Hey, they've let several of their characters act basically like real people, albeit with a penchant for monologuing in cutesy speech patterns" they pull the rug out from under me again. And I'll probably keep watching, because screw it, I like that there's a show on the air that let a woman with a past like Meredith's (one night stands, boozing, sleeping her way through Europe, depression, suicidal ideation) come out on the other side and have a family and a successful career. Also, I still love Christina Yang. Like all the other victims of this particular sort of Stockholm Syndrome.

"The Office" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season winter premiere. To quote the show itself "So... that's still going on, huh?"

Genevieve Burgess will be writing the date wrong for the next two months.

    Sorry but when did all this "winter premiere / fall finale " crap start? Shows use to premiere in Sep / Oct and end with a finale would take place in April/ Mayish.

    No Elementary love? Moriarty is supposed to be revealed tonight.

    Breaks over Christmas have been common for quite a while I think.

    It became a thing last year, I think. A way for networks to excuse themselves for not running new episodes for six weeks.
