5 Shows After Dark: No, Really, Take it All Away

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | December 10, 2012 | Comments ()


"How I Met Your Mother" on CBS at 8:00pm ET.

"Mel Brooks Strikes Back!" on HBO at 9:00pm ET.

"Hoarders" on A&E at 9:00pm ET.

"Take It All" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new game show hosted by Howie Mandel that's basically a prettier version of "The Prisoner's Dilemma" involving game show prizes. Because that's just what we need around the holidays, a show that will most likely confirm that most people are greedy and self centered. Unless there's a Christmas miracle and it goes the other way, but I don't have a lot of faith in the people who end up on game shows.

"Michael Buble Christmas Special" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. I'm not a big fan of Christmas specials, because watching entertainers spend an hour or two singing the same 10-15 Christmas songs every year isn't what I consider a good time. However, Michael Buble's voice is a gem all on its own, and would be even when he's stuck singing a slightly warmed over version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer".

Genevieve Burgess is making her list and checking it twice.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I have this completely unsubstantiated theory
    that Michael Buble started his music career as a failed children's
    birthday party singer called "Mikey Bubbles." Due to his smooth,
    nonthreatening charm, Bubbles was so popular with the mothers in the
    crowd he finally hit it big when he had an affair with one who happened
    to work in the music industry. PROVE ME WRONG.

    Don't forget the SyFy 20th anniversary show is on tonight.

    a slightly warmed over version of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

    Can be yummy, after it's sat overnight in a pan sauce made w/ Cabernet, blackberries & black pepper.

    I'm thinking something a little less directly French and more Cajun.

    "However, Michael Buble’s voice is a gem all on its own, and would be
    even when he’s stuck singing a slightly warmed over version of “Rudolph
    the Red-Nosed Reindeer”."

    Really? I think he's incredibly bland and interchangeable. He even managed to butcher "Feeling Good", which should be impossible.

    My friend used to manage a big-ish music venue in town. According to him, Buble is among the biggest dickheads he's ever had to work with. Sorry if I'm bursting some bubbles. Lady bubbles.

  • Anne At Large

    Aww, Buble! I'm in!

  • DarthCorleone

    I liked that game show that Kennedy hosted a few years back that also used the Prisoner's Dilemma, but at least that one had some trivia involved.
