5 Shows After Dark: Seriously, I Need to Wash My Hands Just From Looking at That Picture

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | March 20, 2013 | Comments ()


"Discovery Special: KKK: Beneath the Hood" on Discovery Channel at 8:00pm ET. I don't know whether I'm more annoyed that these awful people are getting more time on television to talk about their hateful ways or baffled that anyone is still intrigued by them. Seriously. "What's up with the KKK these days?" "Oh, they still hate anyone who's darker than 'eggshell' and even a whole bunch of people who aren't based on seriously skewed and inaccurate views of biology, history, and religion and they won't listen to sense on the topic!" "Oh, so, same shit different day then?" HOW IS THIS A MYSTERY?

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

"Duck Dynasty" on A&E at 10:00pm ET. I've got to give these dudes credit, from what I've seen they've made the decision to play the reality show game harder than the Kardashians and it seems to be paying off big. Obviously it helps that they actually had a successful business before they launched the television show, and weren't just riding on the coattails of a C- sex tape.

"Southland" on TNT at 10:00pm ET.

"Workaholics" on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. Third season finale. I tried watching this show a couple times. It was the television equivalent of dorm room carpeting that's dark enough to hide stains but has a suspicious sticky texture to it when your bare skin is unfortunate enough to come into direct contact with it and all your socks end up absolutely filthy even when you just wear them around your room.

Genevieve Burgess would be terrible at being on a reality series and recognizes that it is a specific skill set.
