5 Shows After Dark: Start the Countdown to Cancellation Now

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 7, 2013 | Comments ()


"The Bachelor" on NBC at 8:00pm ET. 17th season premiere.

"The Mob Doctor" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. This has already been cancelled so don't look for it to return. Instead, prepare yourself for whatever hideous mid-season replacement Fox is going to throw at us in the next few weeks.

"Castle" on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season winter premiere.

"Deception" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. The good news: This stars Meagan Good and Laz Alonso which sort of automatically makes it one of the most racially diverse shows in the NBC line-up on the basis of all two of them. The bad news? Early reviews are that it sucks. Hey! Remember that other mystery series with two non-white leads that NBC introduced in 2010? "Undercovers" with Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw that also suffered from terrible early reviews? No? Yeah, I didn't think so.

"Vanderpump Rules" on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. According to Bravo's website, this is some spin-off of one of the rapidly replicating "Real Housewives" series. According to me, Bravo is just making up people now and seeing how long it takes their viewers to figure it out.

Genevieve Burgess will be writing the date wrong for the next two months.

    I tried watching the Deception pilot, but they crammed so much into it I thought my TV would explode. And none of it was very good.

  • KatSings

    I want better for Victor Garber, truly I do.

  • Nicolae

    So long Mob Doctor. May they never find your footage for reruns.

  • e jerry powell

    Poor Megan. She's deserved a better career ever since Eve's Bayou.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Yes, but those bastards got to spend the weekend in warm, sunny Miami and I didn't so screw all of them. Goddamn winter.
