5 Shows After Dark: That Dog Really Is A Jerk, Though

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 21, 2012 | Comments ()


"2012 NBA Finals: Game 5" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Could be all over tonight.

"Burn Notice" on USA at 9:00pm ET.

"Snooki & Jwoww" on MTV at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. At least they've figured out how most people feel about them, because this episode is called "Sorry, Neighbors, Cause These Bitches Are Moving In". I am wondering how this will work out for them, since "Jersey Shore" was primarily a show about drunken idiots being idiots while drunk and now one of the idiots starring in this show can't drink. Not on camera anyway, I think even MTV is above taping a pregnant woman getting wasted on the regular and acting like that's cool.

"America's Worst Tattoos: Crazy Clown, Bunny, and Pony Obsessions" on TLC at 10:00pm ET. I know there's some of you out there who appreciate the particular flavor of schadenfreude that is gawking at the ridiculous things other people have seen fit to permanently etch on their body. Grab some popcorn, cause this is your show.

"Wilfred" on FX at 10:30pm ET. Second season premiere. I watched this for a while, but while the premise was interesting the execution seemed to fall flat, for me. I don't know why, but I expected more of a show in which one person saw a regular dog as an actual person in a dog suit but everyone else just saw a dog. Seems like there were better places to go with it than "wow, that dog's an asshole."

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

    I watched the first few episodes of Wilfred because I love Elijah Wood. I liked the premise of the show, but I just couldn't get into it. I'm surprised it got a second season.

    Also, I never figured out how an unemployed single man could afford such a cute house in California. I've watched House Hunters. That house had to be at least $500,000 in California.

    Are they allowed to swear and do drugs in the US version of Wilfred? Because his assholishness was made ten times funnier in the Australian version by that.

    I've never seen the show, but find it amusing since I have a good friend named Wilfred (actually Wilfredo). He wasn't pleased when the show came out, but at least hoped now people might get his name right instead of trying to call him Alfred/o.

    Why watch the show when there's this, now? : http://textfromdog.tumblr.com/

    Thanks for that link, zyzzyva. I nearly pissed myself laughing. I will add it to my growing list of "sites I do not actively hate."

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I totally would've missed Wilfred too. Thanks Pajiba!

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I didn't care for it either. Seeing a dog supposedly smoking a cigarette bothered me.

  • Harrumphie!


  • Ender

    A dog is a man's best friend and deserves a cigar.

  • aroorda

    I woulda missed Wilfred. Thanks! Can't wait to see this generation's greatest love story continue. Wilfred and Bear hasbe a really great thing going.

  • lowercase_ryan

    the "preview" episode of Wilfred or whatever they called it was weird and sadly disappointing. It's like the show took a wrong turn down a dark alley and can't figure out how to turn it around. I want the cheeky fun back.
