5 Shows After Dark: Monkey Fighting Snakes, Indeed
"Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr." on PBS at 8:00pm ET. Tonight's episode features Samuel L. Jackson, Condoleezza Rice and Ruth Simmons. I want them to tell Sam Jackson that all their research turned up was a long line of people labelled "Bad Motherfucker".
"Game of Thrones" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. The title is "The Ghost of Harrenhal" so expect super creepy funtime!
"Masterpiece: Birdsong" on PBS at 9:00pm ET. The Edwardian angst, she continues. Also, thanks to the astute readers last week who alerted us all to the presence of Richard Madden aka Robb Stark who is ALSO in this. Although probably in a significantly less awesome capacity than in "Game of Thrones" because I haven't heard of anyone in WWI taking a giant wolf into battle with them.
"The Borgias" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Randy popes of the Renaissance still trucking along then?
"Mad Men" on AMC at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That's a lie.)
