5 Shows After Dark
"Thursday Night Football: Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks" on NFL Network at 8:00pm ET.
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" on FX at 10:00pm ET.
"Prime Suspect" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Another "watch it while it's here" show, since this is being replaced in January with a new series based on John Grisham's "The Firm." If that fails, anticipate a medical drama. I'm convinced there's form of Mad-Libs they play in the NBC, CBS, and ABC offices that puts together two random adjectives, a pronoun, and then doctor, lawyer, or police officer to make all their shows. Try it yourself! "This new show is going to be about a female... single parent who is... tough yet loving and she works as a... trauma surgeon. We're calling it 'Labor of Love' and it'll premiere next fall. After that will be a show about a group of... young... quirky and artistic... lawyers. What are we feeling on that one? Something along the lines of 'Bar None' or 'Spirit of the Law' but I'm open to suggestions." See? Super easy. Anyone can be a TV executive.
"The League" on FX at 10:30pm ET.
