5 Shows After Dark: He Can Also Skype With Himself, Apparently

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 31, 2013 | Comments ()


"30 Rock" on NBC at 8:00pm ET. One hour series finale. Say goodbye to Liz, Jack, Tracy, Jenna, Kenneth, Dot-Com, Grizz, and all your other favorites.

"The Office" on NBC at 9:00pm ET and 9:30pm ET.

"Archer" at 10:00pm ET on FX. Looking like a Krieger heavy episode.

"Do No Harm" on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Series premiere. The modern take on Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde, in which a successful neurosurgeon spends 12 hours a day as an upstanding citizen and 12 hours as a loose cannon destructive maniac. My question is, which personality is the one who sleeps? Because that's kind of important. Even if he's a short sleeper, someone's got to fit 4 or 5 hours in there at some point. If that's not addressed, this could be a very short series. "What happened to Dr.Cole?" "I don't know, he just broke down in surgery, stripped off his clothes and ran out into the middle of the street where he was hit by a bus. Terribly tragic." Also, don't surgeons, particularly brain surgeons, work on surgeries that last more than 12 hours? So many questions.

"Scandal" on ABC at 10:02pm ET. Two minutes late tonight, make sure your DVRs are adjusted.

Genevieve Burgesswould very much like it if you bought her book. Please?

    I skype with myself all the time.

    That means furiously masturbating right?

    And I do mean furious...

    Dear the writers of The Office,,

    I beg you to consider this: STOP. Hammer time.

  • DeltaJuliet

    The whole thing with the boom guy.....I was like ALRIGHT! ENOUGH ALREADY! We've never seen this guy for nine seasons and now he's hugging Pam and fighting warehouse vandals. Make it stop.

  • I'm 15 minutes into Do No Harm because I forgot to turn off the TV after The Office and it is fucking terrible. The End.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Also, don’t surgeons, particularly brain surgeons, work on surgeries that last more than 12 hours?

    Judging from the pilot, the situation seems to be he's just so damn good he doesn't need the time. Dude seems to somehow be working a 9-5 chief of surgery gig on the inexplicable justification of diabeetus (I can only type it in Brimley voice), but is nevertheless so talented nobody but a clear douchebag surgeon who wants his job will question it.

    That said, it wasn't particularly good. It could be, maybe, but there's just not enough there to make it seem worthwhile. Also because it's a midseason replacement and we can just assume it won't make it anyway.

    The full premier episode of "Do No Harm" has been on Fios On Demand for the last few weeks as a
    "sneak peak". I guess it was supposed to peak your interest, and get
    you excited about watching the rest of the show. I was curious, so I put
    it on. It was so bloody terrible that I had to turn it off after ten
    minutes. Absolutely, painfully awful. Not even "the lowest common
    denominator will like it" awful. It is poorly done, horribly written,
    horribly acted. Everyone is going to hate it and it will get shitcanned after one or two episodes.

    The Miracle of the Disqus! The Disqus has brought us here! Speak to us, Master! Speak!!!!

    We allready had a modern day take on Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde, it was called Jekyl and written by Steven Moffat and was kind of awesome.

  • Repo

    I realize its not the same premise, but Do No Harms commercials just remind me I'm still bummed Awake got the axe last year.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    That was such a good show.

  • I just don't understand how "Do No Harm"'s premise of a gorgeous surgeon who is arbitrarily good half the time and a douchebag the other half the time will be able to differentiate itself from any of Shonda Rhimes' shows.

    The end of 30 Rock...NERD RAGE!
