5 Shows After Dark: How Badly Does Schreiber Want Voight's Hand Off His Shoulder?
"Dexter" on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. Eighth season premiere. This is the final season of the show, which is probably a relief to many of you.
"The Killing" on AMC at 9:00pm ET.
"True Blood" on HBO 9:00pm ET. Every time I hear people talk about this show, it's them talking about how close they are to not watching it anymore. And then they watch it again. So, what's your line for giving up on this show? Or any show? If there is a show you were watching that you ditched before it came to a real conclusion, what made you abandon it? If you're going to get specific, use a spoiler warning, but I'm looking for more general things like character assassination, cartoonizing previously complex secondary characters, drama/disaster fatigue, or just flat out boredom as the plot refused to resolve, things like that. I'm always interested to hear what really pushed someone over that line.
"Cooper" on BBCA at 10:00pm ET.
"Ray Donovan" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new series starring Liev Schreiber as a Hollywood "fixer" who seems to be a combination of Ari Gold and Olivia Pope. He also has a father with a criminal past, played by Jon Voight.
Genevieve Burgess has a little game she'd like to play with you. More details tomorrow.
