5 Shows After Dark: Seriously, Is She Playing Dead Marilyn? Because This Does Not Look Good.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | February 5, 2013 | Comments ()


"Betty White's Second Annual 90th Birthday Special" on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

"Emily Owens, M.D" on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Series finale. Aw, poor Mamie Gummer. That's now two shows in which she's played a doctor that have failed.

"Smash" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour second season premiere. Recently I had to be on a plane and it was American Airlines so they run NBC programs on flights that are too short to show movies on. Since this flight was about two and a half hours, we got approximately 45 minutes worth of "Promo" material for the upcoming season of "Smash" and commercials for it during the episodes of other NBC shows they were showing. I guess they're trying to convince non-music theater fans to watch it. That would be easier if the show wasn't as awful as it's been every single time I've seen it. Also, Katherine McPhee looks TERRIBLE as a blonde which is surprising, but also not good for the plot. Seriously. All the pictures I've seen of her in a Marilyn wig look like she's a literal ghost.

"Justified" on FX at 10:00pm ET.

"Tosh.0" on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Five seasons worth of watching YouTube videos on television. What a wonderful society we have built for ourselves.

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

    Katherine McPhee is a beautiful woman. That picture up there makes it look like she's smuggling broken noses. Pity.

    I want to watch Smash, because I really like looking at Katherine McPhee. But not enough to watch Smash, because have you guys seen that show? Yeesh.

    Fuck Smash. I'm catching up on my Walking Dead. SO excited for Sunday !!!!

    I'll be watching Face Off because I don't like my shows crowded with other viewers.

    I get (kinda) that they're trying to make "Smash" like an adult version of "Glee." But it just looks dumb. Honestly, when it first started, I thought it was another singing competition, which is why I didn't start watching it. Then it got such piss-poor word of mouth that I continued to not watch it. And now I might (might) be tempted to watch if there is absolutely nothing else on, just because of that "this is why 'Smash' got so shitty and we've fixed it, so please watch it now" article. Sometimes I catch shows I like that way, just channel surfing for want of anything to watch that I haven't already seen. Usually on the downhill slide to cancellation, but still ...

    Obviously, I won't be missing "Justified" in favor of "Smash." So no matter how much "Smash" doesn't suck now, I'm going to FX at 9 pm (CT).

    How many seasons would it be if we added World's Dumbest to Tosh.0?
