5 Shows After Dark: Picking Out the Most Contrived Part of "Glee" is a Game You Can't Lose but There's No Winners

"Last Resort" on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Series finale. Hey, look at that, ABC decided to give this show a proper send off by airing all the filmed episodes. That's sweet of them. If only they could treat all their other shows similarly. I guess the B in Apartment 23 is actually ABC even though that doesn't make sense and I'm terrible at jokes.

"Parks and Recreation" on NBC at 8:30pm ET.

"Glee" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season winter premiere. The episode is titled "Sadie Hawkins Dance" and so I have to ask: Are there any schools out there that actually hold Sadie Hawkins dances? I have never been to a school that held one and so I'm always vaguely suspicious of shows that use them as a plot point. Like, it's something that hasn't actually happened in the lifetime of any of the writers, but they thought it'd be a convenient way to move the plot along so they're going to pretend. Of course, my sample size of schools isn't large so that's why I'm opening the floor up a bit. Have you or anyone you know ever attended a Sadie Hawkins dance? Are you or that individual under 40? Thank you.

"Project Runway" on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. 11th season premiere.

"Archer" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

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