5 Shows After Dark
"America's Next Top Model" on The CW at 9:00pm ET. 17th season finale. Guess another whole crop of aspiring models have settled into their lives as frequent talk show guests, and eventual fodder for "Dancing With the Stars" and whatever retirement plan for people who used to take up space on television VH1 is running these days. There is no top model, only Tyra.
"Happy Endings" on ABC at 9:30pm ET.
"American Horror Story" at 10:00pm ET. They've gotten some religious crazy mixed in with the ghost crazy. I like it. Catholic flavor crazy, obviously, because I swear no religion does crazy like Catholicism does crazy. (I am baptized AND confirmed, thanks for asking.) As for the bets on when this show would go off the rails? I'm pretty sure it was never on them to begin with. Bless you, Ryan Murphy.
"The Soup" on E at 10:00pm ET.
"State of Play" on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere.
