5 Shows After Dark: Let's Just Give These Two a Show, Leave the Amateurs at Home
"American Idol" on Fox at 8:00pm ET. 12th season premiere. Oh, excellent. This is back ensure that Fox doesn't have to figure out actual programming for about three solid months. However, the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey dynamic holds some promise as far as entertainment possibilities go.
"Arrow" on The CW at 8:00pm ET. First season winter premiere.
"Criminal Minds" on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Eighth season winter premiere. You guys, ever since I saw this picture a day or two ago I've been giggling every time I think of it. Oh, Shemar Moore, you're so pretty.
"American Horror Story" on FX at 10:00pm ET.
"Dangerous Persuasions" on Investigation Discovery at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new show about people who were manipulated into committing crimes for others. Tonight's episode is about a woman who spied on people for the Church of Scientology. Interestingly enough, this highly anticipated book about Scientology is released tomorrow. I'm sure that's just a happy coincidence.
Genevieve Burgess will be writing the date wrong for the next two months.
