5 Shows After Dark: Crime Dramas Are Getting Prettier Every Year

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 10, 2013 | Comments ()


"Major Crimes" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere.

"Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer" on HBO at 9:00pm ET.

"Deon Cole's Black Box" on TBS at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I saw a commercial for this where Deon was like "Because pop culture won't make fun of itself!" and I was like "Have you been participating in pop culture lately? Because that seems like that's ALL it's doing these days." but perhaps other people need the joke spelled out for them.

"King and Maxwell" on TNT at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new series about two disgraced Secret Service agents who are now private investigators. Starring the incredibly lovely Rebecca Romijn, and so far that's all I can find to recommend it.

"The Winner Is..." on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new singing competition! Because we don't have enough of those on television currently struggling to find an audience! See what I mean about pop culture making fun of itself without any help?

Genevieve Burgess supposes she would be out of a fake-job if people didn't need pop-culture absurdities spelled out for them.

    Oh, it's all about the Pussy Riot tonight.

    Romijn hasn't been able to make a show stick, but those have all been long-season shows. If she's going to be her house's breadwinner, she needs for this summer thing to happen.

    I would think that by now a network would be embarrassed to air a new singing competition show. It's like someone sporting a high top fade and leg warmers.

  • e jerry powell

    It's NBC. At this point, singing competitions are all anyone watches there.

    They would be if it weren't for the fact that people will watch it.
