5 Shows After Dark: Getting Upstaged By Real Life

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | February 13, 2013 | Comments ()


"Inside the Actor's Studio: Hugh Jackman" on Bravo at 8:00pm ET. I guess this is part of his Oscar rounds. I hope he gets it, if only so he can keep playing fun roles and not become one of those actors who spends the rest of their career taking "serious" parts chasing that little statue.

"Survivor" on CBS at 8:00pm ET. 90 minute 26th season premiere. Damn, you guys. I can barely stick with shows that last longer than four seasons and some of you out there are still watching "Survivor" after 26 seasons? I'm deeply impressed by your commitment to Jeff Probst and dirty people on your television set. 13 years worth of them. Kudos.

"Supernatural" on The CW at 9:00pm ET.

"The Americans" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"Southland" on TNT at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Lets see how well it does against the gritty LA cop drama currently airing on CNN. Which might be over. But every time they're like "We're pretty sure this burned up husk of a body is the guy we're looking for" I have a flash back to reading Red Dragon and go hide under my bed. Forever.

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

    Oh my gosh, I stopped watching Southland last season because of....well, because of life. But is that picture you used for the header reflective of the show? Are Ben and John partners again?!

  • Green Lantern

    "Arrow"? C'mon...it's fairly well liked around these parts and is
    generally thought to be much better than it aughta be (while still
    falling into a few of the predictable CW show traps).

    I think another green hero should get some love in Pajibaville.

    I have listed "Arrow" before. I know I have. But when I get five slots, sometimes not everything gets listed every week. Just the way it goes.

  • Green Lantern

    Phooey. PHOOEY I SAY!

    I only watched Survivor last season because it was filmed here in the Philippines. Luckily, it was one of the better seasons. Guess I'll be watching again this year.

    I have not watched it with much regularity, but I will say, what I have seen: Southland is a REALLY good show. It's low-key and intense at the same time.

  • DeltaJuliet

    SouthLAnd is fantastic! I try to get everyone to watch it so maybe they will make the seasons a little longer and you know, not cancel it. It's very intense and action-packed, with awesome characters.

  • I quit Survivor years ago. I don't remember which irritating redneck finally made me stop caring, but I never looked back.

  • Luke Anthony Matthews

    Survivor. YES.

  • toblerone

    Southland! F@#! YEAH!

    Suburgatory - 9:30 on ABC
