5 Shows After Dark: Breckin Meyer's Apple Box Budget Must be Out of Control

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 19, 2013 | Comments ()


"NHL Finals: Chicago at Boston" on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

"Franklin and Bash" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Sometimes people ask me what I mean when I use the term "dude-bro" as a descriptor. This show is one of the examples I tend to point to, along with serious lacrosse players, any guy still wearing his frat tee-shirt regularly in public more than five years after graduation, and Dave Matthews fans. I could go with the far easier explanation of "Grown men who frequently use the terms 'dude' and 'bro' in casual conversation" but where's the fun in that? Anyway, Heather Locklear joins the cast this season.

"Futurama" on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. One hour season 7B premiere. TV networks all have a room full of people who just sit there and come up with dumber ways to say "Hey, this show is back!" don't they?

"The Soup" on E at 10:00pm ET.

"The Soup Investigates" on E at 10:30pm ET. Series premiere. A new "Soup" spin-off, though shockingly enough it still stars Joel McHale. I figured Mankini or one of the other regulars would be heading this up. Anyway, more riffing on pop culture in general instead of an entire show based around other television shows. Still, I think most of you would consider more Joel McHale in your life a good thing. Combined with "The Soup" at 10, you get a full hour of him on your TV on Wednesdays!

Genevieve Burgess is attempting to train her younger sister out of an unfortunate "dude-bro" speech pattern. She's debating whether rolled-up newspaper or a spray bottle is the preferable deterrent.

    Oh thank goodness! You know, I was out of work for a while. Got a job randomly out of nowhere, and got incredibly sick almost immediately. Now am being called randomly to go out to job sites and had to do a late hour training today for a job I will most assuredly fail to do right tomorrow morning. All the while coming to the sudden realization that I'm more or less a sociopath with a conscience. Basically meaning, all the downside and none of the upside. But Franklin and Bash is back in business baby! Forget about everything else in the world. Forget about my petty problems that are too long for twitter! The greatest show on tbs about two goofy lawyers starring an ex star of the beloved teen show Saved By the Bell is back! I've never felt so happy or fulfilled in life. Thanks for reminding me to check it out! And Heather Locklier?! Man, talk about the richer keep getting richer over here, amirite?!

    Hey, no gay teen boys ever masturbated to Breckin Meyer. Cut a guy some slack.

  • googergieger

    I have no idea what you just said. I take it as some sort of country western gay ballad reference. No idea they existed firstly, and therefore there will be no second of all.

  • e jerry powell

    Yes, there are some.

    Breckin Meyer and his Franklin & Bash co-star, Mr. "Look-so-Good" have been out stumping for the season premiere, as would be expected, and poor Breckin had to sit through Not-Gosling gushing (as it were) with joy over the fact that one of the gayer talk show hosts they were visiting had talked about his teen beat-off fantasies surrounding Gosselaar on Howard Stern.

    On behalf of short people everywhere, I take exception to this "apple box" comment.

  • Maguita NYC

    So that's all we can look forward this summer? Wednesday nights with Mankini?

    All righty then.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Your stalker seems to be slacking off today. Your posts have been up for several hours with nary a downvote.

  • Maguita NYC

    Nah, he was just taking a nap. Nothing to do during the day, and up all night. Tiresome dog!

    ...and the Heat survive to play on. The conspiracy lives.
