5 Shows After Dark
"The Vampire Diaries" on The CW on 8:00pm ET. Third season winter premiere.
"When Vacations Attack" on Travel at 8:00pm ET. I enjoy this show's incredibly specific episode titles. Observe: "A Monkey Attacks a Boy Who's Vacationing with his Family in Honduras." Honestly, most news outlets don't have such thorough headlines these days.
"Grey's Anatomy" on 9:00pm ET. 8th season winter premiere. I know a lot of you enjoy mocking this show, so I'll give you a tip; mocking it for the ghost/tumor hallucination sex is very season five. If you're going to give those of us who watch the show shit about it, stick to the much more current theme of Meredith Grey as Job. Seriously, shit just cannot go right for this woman and it's almost hilarious.
"Project Runway All Stars" on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere.
"Jersey Shore" on MTV at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Yup. That happened.
