5 Shows After Dark: What Summer Tastes Like

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | May 8, 2013 | Comments ()


"Mythbusters" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. The Mythbusters are going "Deadliest Catch" themed tonight with a bunch of crab myths. Are there crab myths? I know they've had to reach a bit for things to test as they've gotten up into the later seasons, but usually I'm like "Oh, yeah, that makes sense" but I genuinely can't think of anything related to sea-dwelling arthropods that requires Mythbuster expertise. Well, except the persistent myth that any crab other than blue crab is the most delicious, because that is straight up WRONG.

"Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy" on History at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Alright, who's starting the petition to get the History channel to change their name to something less insulting to actual history?

"Supernatural" on The CW at 9:00pm ET.

"Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" on NBC at 9:01pm ET. It must be bittersweet to be a professional actor and get offered a featured role on this show, because you know the chances are very good you're either 1. going to be playing someone horrible or 2. having to act out having something horrible done to you. But I guess if you've already disappointed your parents by pursuing an acting career, their esteem of you isn't going to fall much further if you call them up and tell them you've got a part as a pedophile.

"The Big Brain Theory" on Discovery at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess prefers her blue crab in crabcake form, but is pretty handy with a mallet too.

    Can I be disgusting for a minute?

    I couldn't help thinking, for a brief moment, that everybody on Mythbusters would be dropping trou and showing off their crabs. Kind of a PSA for The Endangered Crab Louse.

    I apologize for that.

  • Some History Channel name change suggestions:

    The Imaginary History Channel.
    The Grown-ups' Pretend Network
    TLC 2
    Incredulity TV
    The Conspiracy Channel
    The Impossible Alternatives to History Channel
    Fox News: Historical Edition
    Alien Hitler TV
    BANG! (Bible-based Alien Nazi Ghosts) TV

    I also suggest that they start pulling crazed hobos off the street to host their shows. A lot of the rants I hear already match well with their programming - it'd be a fairly seamless transition - and this way they'd at least be doing SOMETHING positive for society. Kind of.

    I'm down with TLC 2, myself. Particularly now that "What Not To Wear" is on its last legs come July. TLC will have done a complete 180 when the last 13 WNTW eps play out. It started back in the days when TLC was the Home Makeover Network. While You Were Out, Trading Spaces, Clean Sweep, In A Fix...

    So much man candy, in addition to fabulous interior design; it was Gay Before Bravo. [sigh]

    Re: Petition to get the History channel to change their name...

    Send it my way. I'll gladly sign it and then shove it up their Obama-is-Satan xenophobic sleazy ass.

    Used to love the History Channel programming. Especially weeks about WWI and II. I have been so disappointed in their changes lately, as well as their misrepresentation of what goes under "History".

    I watch History International instead. It's less trashy, but I can't really quantify how. And more History of Sex.

    I love History of Sex. Two of my favorite things that taste great together.
