5 Shows After Dark
"2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Special" on VH1 at 8:00pm ET. I've seen the cover of the new swim suit issue and it's so clearly digitally manipulated that it almost looks like a cartoon. Almost. Which is a shame, because I've seen other pictures of that cover model and she's a stunningly beautiful girl and looks nothing like herself on the cover. I'm sure that won't hurt sales at all, though, particularly since her bikini bottom looks more like an attractively colored band-aid than a swim garment.
"Cougar Town" on ABC at 8:30pm ET.
"The Loving Story" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a documentary about the Loving vs. Virginia case that made it to the Supreme Court and resulted in the striking down of laws banning interracial marriages in 1967. The film features photographs and archival footage of the couple together talking about their struggles.
"Justified" on FX at 10:00pm ET.
