5 Shows After Dark: How Do You Solve a Problem Like Ted Mosby?
"How I Met Your Mother" on CBS at 8:00pm ET. The answer to the show's title question is, apparently, "I spent seven odd years dicking around and blaming not meeting 'the one' for my romantic failures while my significantly more awesome friends just got the hell on with their lives before __________." I am curious as to how many of you watching are still anxious about getting to meet "The Mother." At this point, I'm not sure how that chick could possibly redeem having to sit through seven seasons of Ted Mosby. Seriously, even when you Google Image search the show most of the pictures you get are of the non-Ted characters.
"Top Gear: India Special" on BBCA at 8:00pm ET.
"Eureka" on SyFy at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. This little show is still going? Well, good for you, show!
"Smash" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Is it getting any less obvious that they're trying to hold a not particularly spectacular American Idol contestant up to a legitimate Broadway actress as though the two are at all comparable? I watched a couple episodes and while Ms.McPhee is quite fetching and not terrible at finding her way through your standard pop tunes, Ms.Hilty is CLEARLY in a very different category as far as vocal talent goes. Also, whatever Debra Messing's character is up to is always annoying. ALWAYS.
Genevieve Burgess doesn't appreciate your sass one bit. (That's a lie.)
