5 Shows After Dark: Women in Their Late 20s Are Here to Take Over TV

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | May 7, 2013 | Comments ()


"Hart of Dixie" on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Second season finale.

"Splash" on ABC at 8:00pm ET. The final three competitors (for those of you who are curious) are Drake Bell, Rory Bushfield, and Nicole Eggert. The promos have been teasing some kind of injury which is not at all surprising or tense because it's sports. People get injured playing sports. Diving off a 30ft high platform into a pool isn't any safer just because you're doing it in the context of a reality show. In fact, it's probably more dangerous.

"New Girl" on Fox at 9:00pm ET.

"Grimm" on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Still on Tuesday nights! I think it's nice that NBC is giving this another chance on a weekday primetime slot. Then again I guess they don't really have much of an option with their current line up.

"Inside Amy Schumer" on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET. It really seems like Comedy Central has gone pretty heavy on the shows featuring or hosted by stand up comedians this season. I liked some of Schumer's stand up so I'm more likely to give her show a shot. Eventually. I have other things to do this week.

Genevieve Burgess hates it when life gets in the way of TV watching. Well, not really.

    I like Amy Schumer a lot. One of my favourite stand ups working today. So I checked out the first episode on CC's site and it's pretty good, certainly for a pilot. I'm already looking forward to it growing as it goes on.

    But mostly, I'm just thankful that she's doing something different with her show by having a mix of stand up, sketches and interviews both on the street and booked. The interview with the model is particularly funny, and probably the kind of interview that only Amy could get.

    Plus it's just good to see more and more comedians getting the chance to go to the next level they deserve.

    I like her too. I caught her stand up on night at about 3 am. I was laughing a lot and relating a lot to her jokes about women in their 20s and how most of us are terrible, but some of us aren't. Also I think she looks like a less glam Jennifer Lawrence and that's always good.

    Amy Schumer is ok, but shes no Tig Notaro.

    Awkward. @ 10 on MTV!
