5 Shows After Dark: This Is Not Worth Competing For

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


"Take Me Out" on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new dating reality series hosted by George Lopez in which 30 women "search for the ideal summer fling" so we've left behind any notions of romance and now have TV shows devoted to helping people find a fuck-buddy. Excellent. At least it'll be a little more honest than the other dating shows.

"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.)

    I watched about 2 minutes of that dating debacle (the hub insisted on at least seeing how awful it was).  I had no idea who any of the people in the chairs were, the one woman I saw was an embarrassment to my gender, and I can't for the life of me figure out why Kat Deeley has associated herself with this crap.  I almost can't support her for an Emmy for So You Think You Can Dance.  Not that my opinion counts, but it should.

    He looks like he has an upside-down bottle cap on his head, like in that Budweiser commercial.

  • Jezzer

    Every time I see a picture of this twit, I expect Mario to run in and jump on his head.

  • So what you're saying is that it is a great night to catch up with your DVR?

  • googergieger

    What is a picture of the world's most in need of plastic surgery penis doing as the header pic? Wait what? Okay, someone just told me apparently that is someone from Jersey Shore. My mistake.

  • Fredo

    Actually now I was picturing "Cajun Justice" starring R. Lee Ermey and Jerry O'Connell investigating the high-powered rifle/stomping murder of...wait, I forgot his name up there.  the guidouche up there.

  • vic

    That dude has serious stink eye.

  • bleujayone

    I would pay good money to watch R. Lee Ermey stomp him into oblivion while shouting his best lines from Full Metal Jacket.

  • I dunno, I might fight for the right to shoot him in the dick with a high-powered rifle.

    Anything to keep him from reproducing.
