5 Shows After Dark

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 29, 2012 | Comments ()


"2012 NFL Pro Bowl" on NBC at 7:00pm ET.

"18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards" on TBS and TNT

"Luck" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a series about horse racing that the HBO website describes as "provocative" which, I kind of hope not but hey that's their business. Dustin Hoffman and Dennis Farina star, but the really big news here for (I suspect) the majority of my readers is that before the shows there's going to be teaser trailers for both the new season of "True Blood" and the second season of "Game of Thrones". So start your DVRs about five minutes early if either of those are your thing.

"Downton Abbey" on PBS at 9:00pm ET. I can't tell you how many times I've accidentally typed this as "Downtown" and had to go back and fix it. Then xkcd addressed this issue perfectly. I'm never going to be able to be exasperated at myself or anyone else again because it'll just turn into me humming "Sexy and I Know It" to myself.

"Shameless" on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned

  • Wembley

    To be fair, once they realize Red John is Jane's other personality, it will kind of bring things to a conclusion rather quickly.

  • Pentadactyl

    I think Monk's still got The Mentalist beat. They took till the very last episode to resolve Trudy's death.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I think How I Met Your Mother should get the crown

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Shorter seasons, though. The Mentalist will tie Monk in just, like, 23 episodes.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    I think Raven Symone's been on broadway in Nunsense, so I think point awarded to RS.

  • Knightnday

    Yes, she's pregnant. Announced in August

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Cool! Though now I'm wondering about the timeline of when they filmed these episodes versus when she announced. But whatever, it's still happy news.

  • "I’m like, 90% certain that the woman who plays Grace on this show is pregnant. "

    Yeah, I'm with you. They've been doing the whole "sitting behind the desk" gag for a few eps now. I've seen her in t-shirt and jeans - nothing to hide there.
