5 Shows After Dark: How Do You Feel About Love Bites?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 10, 2012 | Comments ()


"The 66th Annual Tony Awards" on CBS at 8:00pm ET. Hosted again by Neil Patrick Harris.

"Mob Wives Chicago" on VH1 at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. Seriously, the mob must be so thrilled these shows exist.

"True Blood" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Sexy vampires! Sexy werewolves! Sexy witches! Sexy... Chris Meloni? Yeah, ok, that'll do. Honestly, you know what gets me the most about this trend towards supernatural beings in romantic triangles is the thought that if I'd been alive for over a century I'd hope I'd get to leave being caught up in petty relationship shit behind a few decades ago. Every time I've tried to watch "True Blood" my overwhelming thought has been "aren't you sick of this shit? I'm sick of it and I've only been watching for 20 minutes." I probably just don't get it though.

"Mad Men" on AMC at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season finale. I think AMC should start offering all the viewers of "Mad Men" preemptive SSRI treatment. This has been a bleak goddamned season.

"Veep" on HBO at 10:00pm ET. First season finale.

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    It's ALREADY the Veep finale? With eight episodes? And now we have to wait, what, nine months until the next season? HBO seasons are HORSESHIT. >:(

  • winged chorus

    Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That’s a lie.)
    Every time I see that I think it says 'ass' not 'sass'. I live in NZ so what show is on when means nothing to me, but I click on the '5 shows after dark' just whenever I need a compliment at the end of the day.

  • L.O.V.E.

    A bit off topic here, but Breaking Bad reruns are starting up late nights on AMC, going all the way back to Pilot Episode in 2008.

  • googergieger

    Apparently Mad Men was on at nine today. So I'll have to wait for the eleven p.m. reshowing. In the mean time I have umm...well nothing to watch. Well I guess I could do with rewatching some of Q.I. on the youtube.

  • Az

    Chris Meloni is number one on my freebie five, actually. I will watch him any way I can get him. But(t) nekkid is stll my favorite, though.

  • Samantha

    I enjoy True Blood, I just don't understand why everyone keeps chasing after the whiny Sooki. She just doesn't seem worth all the trouble.

  • With all this rampant Sooki/Sookie-naming going on I always have trouble keeping track of whether you lot are talking about Jersey Shore or True Blood. Especially since the shows - neither of which I watch - seem to pretty much about the same fucking thing. Except it seems the cast of TB have at least the decency to be good looking.

  • Matty

    Hey. Just drink the fucking TruBlood.

  • Chris Meloni might make me try once more. I really do think the fake southern accents kill it entirely, for me. And the cheese UK quality special eeffects. And soap opera quality drama is supposed to hook me?

  • Elizabeth Gorman

    It's okay if you don't "get" True Blood, Genevieve. I don't "get" Firefly. Every time I try to watch it, I just want to smack Nathan Fillion in the face over and over and over. Maybe it's just me as well.

  • Serpentlord

    Exorcism's are just supposed to expel your demons, not toss your soul out too.

  • Elizabeth Gorman

    How does that even relate to my comment, never mind the topic at hand?

  • hapl0

    Every time I’ve tried to watch “True Blood” my overwhelming thought has been “aren’t you sick of this shit? I’m sick of it and I’ve only been watching for 20 minutes.

    Well, to be honest I stopped watching this for Sookie a long time ago. Now it's all about Lafayette, Pam, Eric (when he's not pussywhipped), Nan, Andy and any good new characters they happen to bring in like Jesus Velasquez.

    Still can't believe what they did to Nan and Jesus.

  • Gee, I wonder what will take the hit at 10PM: The Tonys or Mad Men? So much crossover. I'm sticking with the Tonys and getting to Mad Men ASAP tomorrow. Mad Men repeats; Tonys are one and done.

  • This is why I love on demand and premium cable flogging same-week repeats.

  • lowercase_ryan

    and what's the deal, are stars up-votes? I'm confused

  • I thought the stars meant you were a mod or admin or something like that?

  • lowercase_ryan

    I don't know, but when I go in Joanna's Link thread from Friday it says 4 stars. I hesitate to take credit for and or ownership of said stars.

  • lowercase_ryan

    How can Veep be over already?!?!? GD it just got here!!! Now the summer is reeeeeaally gonna suck. Especially since you "conveniently" left out that the two-part finale of The Killing starts tonight. I swear this is just part of an anti-The Killing agenda on the part of Pajiba cause somebody got their knickers in a knot over the whole 1 season turn 2 seasons thing and couldn't get over it. This goes all the way to the top!!!

  • I'm really just pleased that you think I'm somehow part of "the top" around these parts.

  • lowercase_ryan

    don't act surprised lol

  • Serpentlord

    Seeing Christopher Meloni as anything other than Detective Stabler is weird. It's like watching Kelsey Grammar.

  • Well, there is that Oz thing. Makes me not mind him not being Stabler all that much.

    Long live naked Meloni!

  • Alan

    no game of thrones =(

  • Honestly, you know what gets me the most about this trend towards supernatural beings in romantic triangles is the thought that if I’d been alive for over a century I’d hope I’d get to leave being caught up in petty relationship shit behind a few decades ago.

    You would have to move to the Arctic to be good and rid of it, and then you couldn't get anything to eat.
