5 Shows After Dark: High Risk of Pants Fires Ahead.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | February 26, 2013 | Comments ()


"Celebrity Wife Swap" on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Eighth season premiere. This is still a thing that exists, apparently. My bigger question here is that the switch this week is listed as "Kate Gosselin/Kendra Wilkinson" and I was under the impression that Kate Gosselin was not currently anyone's wife. So is Kendra just waltzing into a house of eight kids with the door slamming shut behind her and a cackle of glee to be heard over the squeal of car tires speeding out of the drive way? I guess I could watch the show and find out, but I like my version better.

"Parade's End" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Mini-series premiere. SOUND THE CUMBERBATCH ALARM!

"Cougar Town" on TBS at 10:00pm ET.

"Golden Boy" on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I kept seeing commercials for this and was like "Hey look, it's Chi McBride and some younger guy who looks maddeningly familiar." I finally looked it up and it's Theo James, otherwise known to us who like our dramas British as Kamal Pamuk, the man who ruined Mary Crawley's life. Not that he came out of the situation particularly well either. Anyway, he's the star of this new show about a frighteningly ambitious young cop and his older, wiser partner. I'm sure they have lots to teach each other.

"Robot Combat League" on SyFy at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. In case there's still a hole in your life from when "Battlebots" went off the air.

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Raising Hope @ 8 On FOX.

  • "SOUND THE CUMBERBATCH ALARM!" - Is that to let society know that the Lizard People are emerging?

    Although I will admit that in the header he looks a lot less lizard person than usual.

  • Still creepy as hell.

  • PDamian

    I'm glad you think so. More for me.

  • toblerone

    No Justified?

  • Genevieve Burgess

    It's on, I just felt like talking about other things tonight. Because other people are way better about talking about "Justified" and another version of 'Man, that Timothy Olyphant, right?' seemed rote.

  • toblerone

    Thanks G.B. (which oddly are my initials as well). Being a Canadian I can't even check FX because it not available outside the US.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Well, there IS an FX Canada, but because of their broadcast agreements prior to the channel's inception they don't show Justified (or Archer, or It's Always Sunny, or new Sons of Anarchy and The League). Justified is on Super Channel but new episodes are delayed by about three weeks. Plus you then also have to pay for Super Channel, which really isn't worth it.

    It's maddening!

  • toblerone

    +1. Louie also isn't available (Yes you can watch the first two season on Netflix).

    It blows my mind you can't even go to fxnetworks.com.

    "Thank you for your interest in FX Networks
    This site is currently only available to viewers living in the United States."

    Yet Hollywood wonders why people pirate...

  • logan

    The thing about Golden boy is the Chi gets all the lines in the commercials. You'd think he was the star of the show except he's neither golden or a boy.

  • Drake

    No, but he is by far the better actor. Theo James is stunning looking, but never been impressed by his thespian skills. Maybe this series will prove me wrong.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Off the pilot on Hulu, I'd say don't get your hopes up.

    Also the gimmick of his rocket rise to police commissioner is unnecessary when it's a police procedural and we all know it will never be anything much more than that. CBS don't roll like that.
