5 Shows After Dark: I Gave Myself a Headache Getting that Screenshot

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 9, 2013 | Comments ()


"I Get That A Lot" on CBS at 8:00pm ET. This is a show where "celebrities" go out and about, pretending to be not-celebrities and seeing who notices. But if someone DOES notice, they just go "I get that a lot" until the end of the segment when the cameras are revealed. Which is kind of a dick move. I mean, I get it if a celebrity is out grabbing some coffee and they don't want to deal with someone trying to take an awkward Facebook photo with them so they brush them off with a "Yeah, I get that a lot. Weird, right?" but when the whole point of the show is "LOOK! It's celebrities! Pretending like they're just like normal people! Isn't that hilarious?" it's kind of rude to lead people on until the producers decide they've gotten enough useable footage. Anyway, the interesting thing about this is that this episode features Larry Hagman, who died back in November. So that won't be morbid at all.

"The 39th Annual People's Choice Awards" on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Good news! Voting stays open right up until the show starts so hurry over and do your best to skew some categories. Though only five categories were still open and three of them were some version of "Favorite [Media] Fan Following" so it's really like playing "death is not an option" when faced with "Favorite Music Fan Following" and choices like "Katycats, Lovatics, Belibers, Directioners, and Selenators." (Fans of Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, One Direction, or Selena Gomez. Because I know at least one of you was wondering.)

"Suburgatory" on ABC at 9:30pm ET. Second season winter premiere.

"American Horror Story" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"The Soup" on E at 10:00pm ET.

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Do people really care that much about Pirates of the Caribbean? I didn't know that it inspired a hardcore fandom. Then again, this is the People's Choice Awards.

  • mugs

    maybe its my snobbery, but arent most of those more well known for the books and not the movies

  • Bert_McGurt

    Wailt, you're telling me that LOTR is a book?

  • Three_nineteen

    On The Middle, Dave Foley guest starred as a school guidance counselor to Brick, the youngest child. One of his lines tonight was "Have you seen the kids in the hall?" I am embarassingly happy tonight.

  • Slash

    I was gonna make fun of the People's Choice awards, then realized I don't care enough about it to bother.

  • Katycats, Lovatics, Belibers, Directioners, and Selenators.”


    That knowledge is in my head now. It is in my head and I know this and I will NEVER forgive you.

    Goodbye, world. I don't want to live in you anymore.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I just can't believe they're calling fans of "The Hunger Games" Tributes. DID YOU READ THOSE BOOKS?!? BEING A TRIBUTE IS NOT A DESIRABLE THING. And I'm 100% certain that "Rum-Runners" and "Ringers" were made up by someone in an office somewhere.

  • I was more ashamed of myself for being able to decipher three of those five.

  • Natallica

    I deciphered them all. Give me the shame crown, my friend. Now it's my time to carry it

  • Groundloop

    And if the burden becomes to heavy for you, my comrade in shame, you can call on me to lift it from you, for I too deciphered this most woeful and depressing of codes.
