5 Shows After Dark: Beautiful and Terrible as the Dawn

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | February 4, 2013 | Comments ()


"2 Broke Girls" on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Those of you who watched the Super Bowl (or the Beyonce concert, whatever) last night are aware that there was a commercial for this featuring the lovely Kat Dennings on a stripper pole. I'm certain that for many of you it was a moment of getting exactly what you wanted in the worst way possible.

"Bunheads" on ABC Family at 9:00pm ET.

"Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a documentary about a priest in Milwaukee who abused more than 200 Deaf children who were in a school under his control. This documents the first public protest against clerical sex abuse, which resulted in a lawsuit that spanned three decades. More information can be found in the synopsis on HBO's website for those interested.

"Top Gear" on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. 19th season premiere.

"Monday Mornings" on TNT at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Hey, guys, another doctor show! Just what you were asking for! However, this one stars the delightful British crumpet that is Jamie Bamber so maybe it is what you were asking for. Also, fun fact, Wikipedia indicates that his full name is Jamie St. John Bamber Griffith which is so fantastic I can't believe he shortened it.

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Holly Martins

    I watch this show. It sucks. It's bad. Abysmal. I watch it. There are sex jokes, food, big boobs and broke people.

    Cast the first remote if you've never succombed to big boobs and sex jokes.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    Yeah, OK, but... there's the internet. THE WHOLE INTERNET. I'm just saying, there are better ways to go about getting your big boobs and sex jokes. The internet even has Kat Dennings! Being actually funny.

    Break the cycle, Ms. Martins.

    No mention of "The Following" already. That's just as well. I told Mrs. , that if we happen to be home at 9 next Monday, I'll probably watch, but if she says, "Hey, let's go out for a beer," then it's over.

  • John W

    God I hope they break with the norm and for once delve into the personal lives of the doctors on Monday Morning.

  • Blake

    Monday Mornings stars Alfred Molina and Ving Rhames? WTF!

    It does have Jennifer Finnigan and her fiancee Jonathan Silverman (another WTF).

  • Salieri2

    Gonna keep an eye on "Monday Mornings," I've got a college buddy in it who's my own personal HITG!. He's under orders to get me a pic of him with Bamber. Or just Bamber. Whichever. I am in fact off to make crumpets right now. Literally.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    Now i wan't to watch Two Broke Girls...No, no i don't. But i am going to watch that super bowl promo for it over and over again.

    YA TOP GEAR UK!!!!

  • NateMan

    I hate the way my brain operates sometimes. Like the way it thinks a pedophile priest in a school full of deaf kids sounds like the first line in a truly tasteless joke.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    On the bright side, your brain recognizes it as a tasteless joke.

  • BWeaves

    ". . . his full name is Jamie St. John Bamber Griffith which is so fantastic I can’t believe he shortened it."

    Ah, but it's pronounced Hymie Sinjin Bambi Gwefess.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I've seen "Sinjin" before but I had no idea that's what it meant.

  • linnyloo

    I know it from Jane Eyre.

  • DeltaJuliet

    I know it from James Bond :)

  • Genevieve Burgess

    But that's amazing! I mean, we need someone else to show up to the British Stereotype Competition at the same level as Benedict Cumberbatch.

  • Rebecca

    Ah, but you are forgetting the estimable Ioan Gruffudd!

  • linnyloo

    Ooooh. Ooooh. Can we call him Sinjin for short?

  • Salieri2

    Wow. Just had an Airwolf flashback, so....thanks. For that.
