5 Shows After Dark: She's Like the Usain Bolt of Teased Hair

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | November 1, 2012 | Comments ()


"The 46th Annual CMA Awards" on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Or as I like to call them, the Aquanet Olympics.

"The Vampire Diaries" on The CW at 8:00pm ET. There's some vampire counter-programming going on with MTV doing a special on the second Breaking Dawn movie at exactly the same time as this. Oh no! Which set of brooding vampires who for some reason become obsessed with human teenagers for reasons beyond "dinner" will you choose!

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"Jersey Shore" on MTV at 10:00pm ET. A lot of people are taking umbrage at some very deluded individuals who believe that Superstorm Sandy was proof of God's wrath against gays. We all know they're wrong. Clearly, God was aiming to wipe "Jersey Shore" off the face of the earth and forgot his quotation marks. I mean, a little too late as this is the last season, but you can't expect a deity that exists outside space and time as we understand it to be able to read a television schedule properly. It'd be like us trying to understand what rodents were saying to each other. We know they piss us off, but we're not really on the level of knowing what their plans are for the weekend.

"The League" on FX at 10:30pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess hopes everyone had a nice Halloween and will be getting back to a standard sign off next week.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Jim Slemaker

    Love me some LEAGUE. Suck it!

  • Groundloop

    Please, Dude, the preferred nomenclature is "Suck it you shit sippers!"

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Watch it, don't you dare compare my beloved Vampire Diaries to Sparkly Emo Vampires or I'll have Damon rip your throat out just for giggles.

  • John G.

    I haven't seen it. Is it really good, or just so bad it's good?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    It's surprisingly enjoyable for a CW show. I was skeptical at first, but you get hooked pretty quickly. And not in a guilty pleasure sort of way. Also it doesn't hurt that it's full of ridiculously attractive people. Of both genders.

  • Jezzer

    It's not quite as good as Buffy, but it's not nearly as archly self-aware, either. Its plot twists and turns with every episode, and it's not afraid to kill or otherwise drastically change the lives of characters. It got to a bit of a slow start in Season One, but I can honestly say I was hooked about a quarter of the way into the season, and I haven't looked back since.

    We recently got lowercase ryan into watching it, and I think he's really liking it.

  • Leelee

    I do recommend watching it with a friend though, simply so you have someone to clutch and scream "OH MY GOD WHAT?!" with.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Word. Damon's heir to Spike if he's anything.
