5 Shows After Dark: Are There Any Non-Surly Tow Truck Drivers?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 11, 2012 | Comments ()


"Bunheads" on ABC Family at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. New scripted series about ballerinas.

"Chicagolicious" on Style at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I swear, I like the song "Bootylicious" but if I had to pick between having that song and dealing with fricking '-licious' being tacked onto everything ever since, I might go with losing "Bootylicious". There are plenty of other songs I can dance around behind closed doors to.

"Top Gear" on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. Vinnie Jones is the guest.

"Kurt Sutter's Outlaw Empires" on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. This week's focus is on Nuestra Familia who are in the drug trade. I'm amazed these people are willing to go on camera, I would think that rule #1 for being an Outlaw would be not letting people with cameras within 100 yards of you, but I'm not an outlaw.

"Lizard Lick Towing" on TruTV at 10:00pm ET. Second season summer premiere. The promos for this seem to feature an awful lot of confrontations and I wonder how many of them are prompted by the producers rather than genuine disagreements. Also, I wonder if you can make a deal that if you stir shit up for the cameras you can get your car out of impound for free, because I'd totally do that despite my aversion to reality shows in general and looking like a jackass on camera in specific. Impound fees are a bitch.

Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That's a lie.)
