5 Shows After Dark: A Meatier Version of Your Standard Alcoholic Lawman

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 28, 2013 | Comments ()


"Bones" on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

"Dallas" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. Aw, I wonder how they're going to manage to write off Larry Hagman's character.

"The Following" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. The first episode of this felt a little "beat you over the head" but that's pretty standard for pilots. I'm willing to stick with it because of Bacon and Purefoy, though I'll admit that when Kevin Bacon (I know his character has a name, I just don't care about it) looked at the word "Nevermore" written in blood across the wall of a garage and went "It's a reference to 'The Raven'!" I'll admit I had a moment of "Oh, good, the genius investigator managed to pass the fourth grade. Looks like the case is wrapped up!" Then I remembered I grew up in Maryland and perhaps there are viewers across the country who need Poe's work spelled out for them to that degree. Anyway, point is the seriously gruesome um... "workspace" scene didn't put me off and I'm in it for now. If they keep having both these "genius" men stun others with the kind of revelations your average high school freshman could come up with, I might have to reevaluate.

"RuPaul's Drag Race" on Logo at 9:00pm ET. 90 minute fifth season premiere.

"Catfish" on MTV at 11:00pm ET. Do you think the guys that run this show sent Manti Te'o a bouquet of flowers? "Catfish" was going the way of "fetch" before that mess broke out.

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

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
