5 Shows After Dark: I Tend to Snack When I'm Bored, Too

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | May 9, 2013 | Comments ()


"Wipeout" on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Sixth season premiere.

"Glee" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season finale. I wonder if this is the episode where they discover the compound in the water that causes all the residents of Lima to lose the ability to accurately recall past events or maintain a specific personality for longer than two months.

"Hannibal" on NBC at 10:01pm ET. I saw some forum for this show (probably on Television Without Pity, that place is pretty hit or miss) where people were questioning some of Hannibal's actions as a therapist and whether they were "unethical" and I sat there for a moment and gaped at the fact that someone is concerned about the "unethical" behavior of a man who likes to kill and eat people for funsies. I'm not sure if that person's just dumb or if Mads Mikkelson's subtle menace is lost on some viewers. Probably both.

"Scandal" on ABC at 10:02pm ET. We are one episode from the finale and last I checked we've got at least four different active plot lines. When I watch this show, I feel like I can begin to dimly understand what life is like all the time for my friends with ADD.

"Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell" on FX at 11:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess is pretty sure the relationship between Hannibal and his patients is similar to the relationship her cat has with mice: they get to live until he's bored of them.
