5 Shows After Dark: … Ladies?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 6, 2012 | Comments ()


"Property Brothers" on HGTV at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere. So, from the small amount of research I was able to do, this seems to be a series in which a very attractive set of male twins help people find and refurbish properties. One is a real estate agent, the other a contractor. I'm pretty certain that in some circles, this actually counts as porn.

"Royal Pains" on USA at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere.

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

"Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman" on Science at 10:00pm ET. Third season premiere. The topic tonight is "Is There A Superior Race?" which doesn't sound particularly Science-y to me. Sounds more like the header on some website that was designed in 2003 and makes you feel mildly queasy just for reading it. Maybe I'm wrong and the Science channel has some kind of ace up their sleeve here, but for now it's getting a whole lot of side-eye from me.

"The Man with the 200lb Tumor" on TLC at 10:00pm ET. Old school TLC with the traditional medical condition freak show.

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

    If you must have HGTV eye candy, "Kitchen Cousins" (yes, real title) is better. Better-looking hosts. Can't remember their names. It's not on a lot, though. I don't know if HGTV has already axed it or not. 

    Then there's a dude with a show called "Income Property." He's pretty cute. Can't remember his name, either. Like it matters. But it's on almost every day. 

    Then there's Mike Holmes. He has a couple shows in rotation. He looks like Mr. Clean, if that's your thing. He's Canadian, too, if that's of any interest. 

  • TenaciousJP

    The wife and I love The Property Brothers. Their whole thing is to crush a couple's dreams, then slowly rebuild a cheap version of their dream home.  It's almost worth it just for the tears.

    Something about their faces just gives me the heebie jeebies. Confidence is not being inspired here.

  • BWeaves

     I agree that something about their faces gives me the heebie jeebies, too.  However, I watch their show, and they seem like really nice guys.  I just wish they wouldn't put so much work into their hair.  The hair combined with their faces makes me feel like they're androids from that Star Trek episode with Harry Mudd.

  • Johnnyboy

    The header pic looks like a before/after ad for "Gay Tonic".

    My brother claims they both look like the Slot from the Ice Age series... I can't unsee it now.

  • firedmyass

    Ick. Dude on the right has Terrence Howard levels of lady-face.

    " I’m pretty certain that in some circles, this actually counts as porn."

    You're not wrong...

  • Redtuna

    I ended up in a company sponsored real estate course with the brother on the right - and I can say that he was one of the sweetest guys I have ever met.  We were stuck in this ridiculously boring two day course (this was when he was trying to sell the pitch for their show) and he was awesome.

  • Pookie

    I don’t think you understand Ryan, I’m not looking for sex, I just want to annoy the fuck out of people. So when I’m in the grocery store people will be repulsed by the sight of me.

  • e jerry powell

     So definitely a wheelbarrow.

  • Pookie

    If I had a medical condition I’d want to have fifty pound balls, and the only way I’d be able to get around was with one of those motorized wheelchairs.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    I think I saw a guy like that in the Wal-Mart parking lot.  

  • e jerry powell

     Or a wheelbarrow, like Randy on South Park.

  • lowercase_ryan

    get some maternity type stretchy pants, a basketball and your motorized wheelchair. Then you just tell people you have one (or two) fifty pound balls. You get to ride your wheelchair and have sex/see your toes at night.  it's a win/win

  • Ballymena Bob

    I'm pretty sure the one on the right is a waxwork replica of the one on the left.

  • TheOtherGreg

    They don't look creepy at all...

  • lowercase_ryan

    guy on the right looks like he swindles retired widows out of their pensions.  I'd trust him.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    One of them looks a bit rapey...no thanks.
