5 Shows After Dark: You Can't Take the Sky From Me. Except For That Time You Did.

"Curiosity: Sex in America" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. The official blurb on this show goes out of its way to compare the research done for this hour of television to the Kinsey survey, and Indiana University, where Kinsey did his research, did conduct a new survey of 5,000 people on their sexual habits. Except Kinsey didn't have to worry about how his research would play on television. I'm also dubious of the show because the release uses the phrase "hook up culture" which I have never heard used by someone who thought it was a good thing. Not for everyone, you know, but I know people who might be better off if someone hadn't married someone else just because they really really wanted to bang them.

"Dexter" on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.

"The Walking Dead" on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

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

"Firefly: 10th Anniversary: Browncoats Unite" on Science at 10:00pm ET. For those of you superfans out there, if the series had been on for ten years where do you think our hapless heroes would be now? Do you think they would have ended after four or five seasons, or stretched things out for the full ten?

Genevieve Burgess is sort of hitting the mid-season slump.
