5 Shows After Dark: Hope You Like Lots of This Dude

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 4, 2012 | Comments ()


"Hell's Kitchen" on Fox at 8:00pm ET. 10th season premiere.

"The Secret Life of the American Teenager" on ABC Family at 8:00pm ET. Fourth season finale. Anyone know the chances of Shailene Woodley coming back to this show since her standout performance in "The Descendants" has gotten her all kinds of recognition? I know a "Best Supporting Actress" nomination doesn't automatically mean lots of money and success, but it's got to be a better stepping stone than an awful teen drama on ABC Family.

"Top Gear" on BBCA at 8:30pm ET. 18th season finale.

"Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" on Travel at 9:00pm ET. Mr.Bourdain travels to Penang, which I could just leave there so that if you didn't know where it was you could feel mildly intellectually uncomfortable for a few moments. But I'll be nice and tell you that it's a state in the country of Malaysia.

"MasterChef" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. And the night of Gordon Ramsay returns to rescue us from the summer doldrums!

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

    Gordon Ramsay looks like a grown up Joffrey. 

  • Hiro_the_Eighth_Samurai

    Good call. And he acts like an adult Joffrey, too.

  • Green Lantern

    The missus and I are both fans of Ramsay, but I don't have the patience for the non-shouty version like she does.

    After watching Masterchef, Hell's Kitchen seems so fake. I already knew it was intentionally over the top, but the back-to-back format makes it ridiculously obvious.  Plus, Bastianich rules. The way he sniffs the food, takes a small bite, then turns his nose and walks away... so, so precious to my bitchy little heart.

  • Shelhill

    It is kinda fun to go from him yelling and screaming and blowing his top at the people on Hell's Kitchen to him being quite a bit nicer and calmer on Masterchef. He's still honest about the food that's bad, but he doesn't scream at them about it...

  • e jerry powell

    There were summer doldrums already?

  • Captain_Tuttle

    Oh lordy, please kill me.  The hub wants to watch both Ramsay shows.  I'm kind of stuck, since he's been taking the lion's share of child care lately.  Doesn't make my ears bleed any less, though.

    I'll come over and watch with him, then, and you can make sandwiches.

    Ramsey is a perfectionist who wants everyone to care about fine food as much as he does. The man has PASSION!

    And Joe Bastianich is one cold motherfucker.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    Just please don't critique my sandwiches the way Ramsay critiques overcooked scallops.  

    I agree with you about Ramsey, and definitely see where it comes from (Marco Pierre White, via French brigade kitchen insanity).  It's really the Hell's Kitchen cheftestants (I almost hesitate to call them that, because I don't believe there anywhere near the level of Top Chef material) that bug the crap out of me.  

    Joe Bastianich cracks me up.  I hope his mother gives him a good smack for every time he's not nice to an amateur cook.

  • comma

     Tee-hee. I'm sure your sammiches will be just fine, especially on good, crusty bread. I'll bring dessert, maybe something from the cupcakerie here.

    "A good smack"? Where do you suppose he gets his attitude from? Lidia can drop harmless little raviolis into boiling -- BOILING! -- water and not feel a thing.

    Woman's a stone killer, I tell you. It's a short step from there to boiling bunnies.

  • Hell's Kitchen has been on for 10 seasons?  Dang, that is a lot of hate cooking for profit.

    yay! HK's back!
