5 Shows After Dark: I'm Sure This Will All Be Terribly Exciting.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | November 12, 2012 | Comments ()


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

"Rob & Kristen: Immortal Love" on E at 8:30pm ET. So, I'm pretty certain that this whole "relationship" was written into their contracts because Twilight fans have the mental and/or actual age of 14 and can't wrap their minds around the fact that Rob Pattinson isn't Edward and Kristen Stewart isn't Bella and while the characters are desperately in love with each other (or something) the actors are actually just coworkers. So what I'm saying is, tape this shit and then a month after New Moon comes out and the relationship quietly dissolves, go back and watch for a healthy dose of the giggles as poor dead-eyed E personalities go into raptures over a relationship between two people who obviously just want everyone to stop looking at them all the time.

"Hawaii Five-0" on CBS at 10:00pm ET. With special guests Terrence Howard, T.I, and one of the Jenner children who tends to get lumped in with her older Kardashian sisters. Just what you wanted!

"Witness: Libya" on HBO at 9:00pm ET.

"Catfish" on MTV at 11:00pm ET. Series premiere. Oh god. You know that thing where what's happening on the TV makes you so embarrassed you want to hide behind your couch? I think watching this show would be so crawly I'd go to my neighbor's house and hide behind THEIR couch.

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

    If the idea that there's a tv special about two actors dating isn't sickening enough, titling it "Immortal Love" is enough to make you hork up your liver.

  • lowercase_ryan

    oooh Terrence Howard. Man did you fuck up.

  • valerie

    I was JUST thinking that yesterday. He had all the buzz, all the promise and he pissed it away with weird, holier than thou behavior and lost himself a franchise.

  • Salieri2

    ...wait, which holier-than-thou behavior? All I know about is the nasty divorce and the domestic violence. And of course the poop thing.

    He was also bounced from the franchise because of salary demands. Howard was signed to the first Iron Man before pretty much any of the other supporting actors, and since the studio didn't know early on what caliber of stars they'd get to flesh out the cast, he got paid a crazy amount of money (more than Paltrow and Bridges, if I remember correctly) and supposedly his performance wasn't well-liked by Favreau or the studio. So, they tried to cut down on his character in the second film, shrinking his salary to match the screen-time, and he walked.

  • Buck Forty

    So he gets paid what they agree to pay him for Iron Man, which goes on to be an international blockbuster, and then for Iron Man 2 they try to cut his pay because Cheadle wants in, so we're meant to think badly of Howard?
    Goddamn he's one uppity negro alright. Let's stop him from working in TV too, so he really learns his lesson.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Where the fuck is all this subtextual racism coming from?

    He should have realized he lucked out with a pretty financially sweet deal on the first film. Instead he balked at the pay cut *for a smaller part*. There was never any "Cheadle wanting in": Howard left, they found a replacement.

    I think he's an asshole because of the degrading things he's said about women. I think he's a poor businessman because he walked away from what would have been a more lucrative film deal. Neither of these have anything to do with each other.

  • Salieri2

    "Mr. Howard, of Hustle & Flow and Crash fame, is attractive, that goes without saying."

    ^Let's not just not say it, let's not imply it. Because to me he looks like a googly-eyed manchild.

    ...with hell of lady-face.

    I wish I shared your enthusiasm.
