5 Shows After Dark: I'll Miss You Most of All, Devil Eunice

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 23, 2013 | Comments ()


"Big Rich Atlanta" on Style at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is the south's revenge for Reconstruction, isn't it? We screwed them after the Civil War and now they'll flood our airwaves with a wide variety of people who should be the sort of individuals whose family reunion invites get "lost in the mail" and now they're in all our homes. Then again that leaves us no logic for "Jersey Shore" or any other "reality" stars who hail from north of the Mason-Dixon line. I give up. I will never make sense of this trend. Eventually they'll just put a camera in everyone's house and we'll be able to spy on our neighbors 24/7 like an apparently significant portion of the television viewing public wants.

"Kimora: House of Fab" on Style at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is Kimora Lee Simmons's second shot at a reality series. I guess the only profession worse than "reality star" is "failed reality star".

"Nova: Rise of the Drones" on PBS at 9:00pm ET.

"Suburgatory" on ABC at 9:30pm ET.

"American Horror Story" on FX at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale. The episode is called "Madness Ends." But I'm sure it'll be back before we know it. Any predictions for next season? I know Murphy is supposed to hide clues in the current season, but I'm always too busy just barely hanging onto the plot to bother looking for any hints or references.

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

    American Horror Story is finally over??? Hooray!

  • Uriah_Creep

    I said it before, and (of course) I'll say it again: Devil Eunice was SO much fun. That demon sure knew how to stir shit up. Whatever they decide to do next season, I hope they give Lily Rabe a big, juicy role again.

  • Frank Booth

    Don't forget so very hot....hotter than Georgia asphalt

  • AHS--Murphy said clues to season 3 were in 'The Name Game'.

    The music on the jukebox pointed to New Orleans--Shirley Ellis lived there-- and Voodoo--Screamin' Jay Hawkins dressed as a Voodoo priest when he performed 'I Put a Spell on You'. I think it might go back to 1918-19 with a story centered around America's very own Ripper mythos, The Axeman of New Orleans, for three reasons: it's a true crime story that hasn't often been mined for fiction; axe murders have figured prominently this season and could be a clue; and the location and era are ideal for spooky, foggy, gaslit fun. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

    How could AHS pass up the opportunity to tell the story of a ax murderer who promised not to kill people who played jazz in their homes?


    Oh, and the Axeman claimed he was a demon.

  • If this isn't season 3, it should be season 4. I would watch the hell out of this.

  • Jerce

    I SO hope that you are right about this. But I will be watching S3 no matter what it turns out to be anyway.

  • Evan Peters would make an excellent, dissolute young Southern Aristocrat, yes? Perhaps there's a Secret Society involved. Like the Knights of Columbus haha.

  • e jerry powell

    Kimora is a loser on both counts, no? Tyra fires her, then her first reality show on her own fails.
