5 Shows After Dark: The Best Looking Cast on Television Just Got Better

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | April 29, 2013 | Comments ()


"Bones" on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Eight season finale. Good news! This has been renewed for a ninth season so we get to watch Temperance Brennan continue to distance herself from anything resembling a complex and multi-faceted human and devolve further into "beep-boop, I'm a weird science chick who doesn't understand people!" cartoonishness. But at least it gives me something new to be annoyed at with this show that isn't the fact that Angela keeps insisting she's an artist despite an impossibly broad and savant-like understanding of computer programming, or the whipsawing between giving Cam a personality or just using her as comic relief.

"The Following" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. This has also been renewed for a second season, which makes me happy for James Purefoy and Kevin Bacon but sad for everything and everyone else.

"RuPaul's Drag Race" on Logo at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season finale.

"The Big C" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere.

"Hawaii Five-0" on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Pajiba favorite Aisha Tyler is guest starring tonight. Poor Scott Caan is going to have to stand on so many apple boxes if he's sharing any scenes with her.

Genevieve Burgess is starting to break her "Bones" habit, but has occasional relapses that result in self-loathing and misdirected anger.

    Drag Race season finale is next Monday. Tonight is clip show.

    I love how Showtime is billing "Big C" as a "limited series event." Basically saying: We didn't want to fund 10 to 13 half-hours, so we're making them shoot four one-hour spots (as if it makes any difference) to close out, now that we've totally killed any reason people would want to keep watching by meddling with the formula..

    This is not the first time the site I use for TV listings has done me wrong and I doubt it will be the last. Thank you for letting me know.

  • e jerry powell

    Damn listings services always get stuff wrong. How am I supposed to get the right TV brain rot if they're always getting the truTV schedule backwards?

  • John W

    Please please please let Tyler's character be named Lana.

    And hopefully she gets at least one, "Noooope," in.

    Bones has been on for EIGHT SEASONS???

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I know, right? It feels like it's been 15, at least.

  • Aisha Tyler is the sexiest woman alive.


  • e jerry powell

    Aisha Tyler is a big ol' drag queen.

  • Damned good one, if so.

  • e jerry powell

    We've stolen her. Deal with it.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    It's a bit too much of an ironclad statement for me to fully agree, but upvotes nonetheless. She is a whole lot of absolutely brain-melting woman.

    I gave up on Bones last season. I've only been watching occasional episodes I hear it's amazing, like their 9/11 episode last year.

    I will give to David Boreanaz though. The man has gotten hotter/more svelte with age. He was so doughy on Angel and now, DAMN!
