5 Shows After Dark: They'll Rename her Mary Sue Any Day Now

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | November 8, 2012 | Comments ()


"Burn Notice" on USA at 9:00pm ET. Two hour sixth season finale. The show has been renewed for the seventh season, so I guess we'll all get a satisfying conclusion to Michael Westen's attempt to leave Miami. Except from promos I'm pretty sure he has left Miami once or twice over the season. So, you know, I'm sure there's something else important to wrap up.

"Glee" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. I have to tell you, as someone who went to music school and had friends who went to conservatories, watching Rachel's experience at Fake Drama School is hilarious. Just flat out hilarious. We got about two minutes of realistic "Oh, you were a big star in your glee club back in Ohio? That's cute. You and all the other 'big stars' can get over there and prepare to be eviscerated now" development but now we're back to Rachel being the shiny perfect unicorn that everyone wants to help even when she's being a bitchy little diva. You EARN being a bitchy little diva, honey, you're not born into it.

"Parks and Recreation" on NBC at 9:30pm ET.

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

"Dave's Old Porn" on Showtime at 11:00pm ET. Second season premiere. I'm not sure how this previously escaped my notice, but it's a series where Dave Attell and other comedians and/or porn stars watch old porn (70s and 80s vintage) and joke about it. The porn itself is censored for television. I suspect a few of you may be fans of that. Also, I had to google "Dave's Old Porn" to find out what this was and I was basically peaking out from behind my fingers to see what the internet sent back to me. Really worrisome moment there.

Genevieve Burgess has met more than a few deluded divas in her time.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    How much of an electric current are they running through those two?
    I've never seen this show. Is duo-electroshock a mainstay?

  • I wonder what the hell the ratings on "Glee" are like. Is it still popular? I know it's not as huge as it was--my basis for that being that I no longer hear the music blaring out of Claire's or whatever the hell teeny bopper mall store that used to play the music 24/7.

    The last episode was alright, actually. I liked the Teenage Dream reprise and the Coldplay song at the end. I'm just waiting for Glee to go to complete bonkers territory, maybe to the level of American Horror Story.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I'm grateful that they actually addressed some shit for once, and a couple of the songs were of a higher quality than usual. But I'm thinking we're heading less "American Horror Story" and more "Rachel and Kurt Wish Fulfillment Fanfic." They'll both end up with hotter, better boyfriends, their dream jobs, and living in their dream city. We just get to watch them struggle with the most superficial of conflicts every week.

  • Irina

    Better boyfriend, yes (not cheating would be an improvement), but hotter? Who's hotter than Darren Criss? :D

  • Just don't leave off the "Dave's" from "Dave's Old Porn" on your google image search. Some things you can never unsee.

    Powerful Truth.

  • Scottieboy

    WAIT. Glee is still on?

    I guess without there being constant drama behind the scenes, there is no use of speaking of Glee... Or maybe the constant past behind the scenes drama, simply turned me off the show for good over a year ago.
