5 Shows After Dark: Oh, Mark Antony, Maybe This Series Will Make It

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 21, 2013 | Comments ()


"Extreme Smuggling" on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. No word of a lie, I read this title as "Extreme Snuggling" the first go around and was trying to figure out what that show would be about. Frankly, I like my visions of baby pools full of puppies or blankets made of kittens much better than whatever this show is probably about.

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

"The Following" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new show about serial killers, because we clearly didn't have enough already. I swear, if these television shows were at all indicative of real life, the leading cause of death for 20-27 year old women would be getting tied up in a basement before having a drill put through their skull or whatever the writers are up to these days. Anyway, main serial killer starts an army of copycat serial killers through the internet (*gasp* but I'm using the internet RIGHT NOW!! Am I going to become a serial killer? Yes. Absolutely.) and then escapes prison. Also, there's a love triangle between the serial killer, the FBI Agent hunting him, and that blonde lady y'all hate on "Justified" because of course there is. Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Shawn Ashmore, and Maggie Grace as well as a rotating collection of crazies and victims.

"Hawaii Five-0" on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Didn't we just do this last night? Yes.

"Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs." on TLC at 10:00pm ET. You guys, Pete Rose has his own reality series. Just thought you should know.

Genevieve Burgess is seriously considering hibernating til March. Make that April.

    I find myself able to suspend a lot of disbelief when it comes to new shows this season (Revolution, I'm looking at you), but I laughed out loud when Natalie Zea's character was called professor! Professor? No. Socialite. Sure. Court reporter. Why not. Zea is about as convincing an academic as Olivia Munn was an economic whiz!

  • Cas Bloom

    Don't worry, we hate her on The Following too.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Well I hope the Following does well enough so maybe they will finally release Solomon Kane on DVD here in the states. Because I love me some James Purefoy.

  • BlackRabbit

    I am a serial thriller. Is that close? No?

  • anon

    The Following sucks balls.

  • TheAggroCraig

    God help me, I'm going to give The Following a try. Also God help me, I snickered at the title of Pete Rose's show.

  • ,

    I'm giving it next week, too, but ... man, that was a huge letdown.

  • Groundloop

    "You guys, Pete Rose has his own reality series."

    That. Is. Awesome.

    You see what happens, Baseball Writers' Association of America? You see what happens when you f*ck a stranger in the ass don't vote Pete Rose into the Hall of Fame?

    He decides to make a reality show! Be sure to tune in for the very special episode when his family tries to convince him to try a different hair style.
