5 Shows After Dark: Get That Horse Out of the Way

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 12, 2012 | Comments ()


"Hell's Kitchen" on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

"Barter Kings" on A&E at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new reality series (seriously, I just need to create a keyboard shortcut for that) about people bartering things for other things sans cash. That's it. I mean, they have goals and all, and I'm sure some bare semblance of a plot with obstacles and so forth but everything you need to know is in the title. Except I doubt anyone on here is an actual 'king' because we don't have those in the US no matter what A&E thinks.

"2012 NBA Finals Game 1" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Wooooooooo! Heat!

"The Brit List: 20 Sexiest" on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. I'm sure the BBC doesn't realize how epically they're pandering to the Pajiban population here. Or do they? If they've got them all dressed up in Regency garb that the contenders slowly remove while reciting passages from Strunk & White, then we know they've got our number. Also, I'm pretty sure I know who the current Pajiba favorite is, correct?

"World's Worst Tenants" on SpikeTV at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I... I shouldn't have to spell this one out for you, right?

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Hiddleston listed only tangentially as someone filming something with Michelle Dockery, who wasn't even ranked but had an aside as an "up and comer"?

    Your Brit List is completely invalid.

  • jmd

    Well I feel condescended to... Telling us we have no idea who Cumberbatch is? Listen lady, quite frankly if we are watching BBC America - I think we know who most of these people are and we have watched Mystery, and Jekyll and Hyde and lots of other things featuring all these Brits... sod off!


  • Resa Anderson

    AND they skipped right over Catherine Tate in the list of Doctor Who women! #donnaforever

  • Matty

    It's a horse! It's a war! It's a war-horse! Cue the orchestra, boys! What are we gonna make? How 'bout a fortune?!

  • Guest

    Fuck, this means I now have to watch War Horse. Goddammit.

  • Cumberbatch is in it too. Just in case that has any impact on your decision.

  • Kala

    I had no interest in seeing it until I found out that both of them are in it. It's now boosted to the top of my Netflix Queue. I'll have to watch it on a day off so I have enough time to physically recuperate.

  • Resa Anderson

    I refuse to watch it. I'm not hydrated enough.

    Everyone who needed this post to tell them Hiddleston would be on tv tonight is disqualified for not already sensing it with their naughty bits.

    Like some pervy Heimdall.

    The Miami Cheat versus OKCheat? Two teams that were handed trips to the finals. WWE refs>NBA refs. I'm a Magic fan that was pulling for Denver but Spurs got screwed in game six. They were easily the best team this year and deserved a trip to the finals to destroy The Cheat. Pacers were screwed in game one versus The Heat and The Celtics were screwed in game two versus The Heat. Know how bad it has gotten? I'm watching soccer now. That is how bad the NBA playoffs were in regards to officiating. I am now watching soccer. And I know what you're thinking, "well you are Mexican so shouldn't you be watching anyways?". And while that is an incredibly racist thing to think, you do have a good point. Though in my defense I am incredibly white washed and most people never pick up on the Mexican thing until I bring it up when I think it'll give me an advantage. And no, it has yet to give me even the slightest advantage.

    To sum up, that Brit List thing looks pretty great. Think I'll give that a go.

    Mr. Hiddleston I presume!

    That lucky lucky horse.

    Setting the DVR now!
    And thank you.

  • “The Brit List: 20 Sexiest” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET.


    Thanks for the tip!
