5 Shows After Dark: This Is Not Worth Competing For

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 7, 2012 | Comments ()

"The Choice" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. Actually starts at 8:58pm. This is ANOTHER new dating reality series except it's modeled on "The Voice" and features 'celebrity' date pickers. So, you pitch yourself to a panel of 'celebrities' and they decide if you sound like a good catch. Because they're totally doing this to meet someone special and not because they need to be in front of a camera or they wither up and die.

"Saving Hope" on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I swear I read the description of this like three times and it's still not coming together as a "show" for me. It seems to revolve around a Chief of Surgery who ends up in a coma and his fiancé and new surgeon try to save him as said comatose surgeon wanders the halls of his former hospital in either spirit or "brain firing haphazardly before death" fashion. That's it. Sounds like a TV movie to me, but if they can milk it for a while season then kudos to them.

"Cajun Justice" on A&E at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I probably don't have to spell this out, but the latest A&E law enforcement series takes place down in Louisiana. So. Now you know.

"Yo: The Story of Yo! MTV Raps" on VH1 at 10:00pm ET.

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