5 Shows After Dark: That's Not For the Tonys, That's Just How NPH Gets Around

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | June 9, 2013 | Comments ()


"The 67th Annual Tony Awards" on CBS at 8:00pm ET. Special presentation. Neil Patrick Harris hosts again, and I'm beginning to think they should just give him a lifetime appointment.

"Falling Skies" on TNT at 9:00pm ET.

"Game of Thrones" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. 70 minute third season finale. Listen, viewers, I know that last week was difficult for a lot of you. Us book-readers can't really say much to convince you otherwise right now, but I hope you stick with the show anyway. There's still a lot of interesting characters and stories developing. Hopefully we'll see you next season, after you've had some time to make healing gif sets, YouTube tribute videos, or whatever else you need to help you heal.

"Mad Men" on AMC at 10:00pm ET. I'm looking forward to the season finale of this, if only so I can re-dedicate the part of my brain that's tracking all the various conspiracy theories out there.

"The Venture Brothers" on Adult Swim at 12:00am ET. I'm so happy this is back. Its weirdness sustains me.

Genevieve Burgess encourages those who have been hurt by "Game of Thrones" to talk out their feelings using "I" statements.

    I didn't realize that Showtime had done another mid-season cancellation. Borgias is just going poof next week.

    Actually that's a loner NPH's real car is a chariot pulled by rainbow colored unicorns.

  • E-Money

    The Tonys is the only awards show worth watching. Unless Tina and Amy are hosting something. Then watch that.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Seriously GoT is the best thing television has to offer. Killing off a couple of characters... No biggie.

  • IngridToday

    Agreed. GRRM never kills of major (or generally minor) characters for absolutely no reason. It shows what a dangerous world these people live in and holds people accountable for their actions, even if their actions were completely human or for noble reason.

    How many shows drag characters through season after season even though they bring nothing to the series *cough* True Blood.

    On most shows, you know the main characters will never be seriously injured or die until the last season ...if ever. When they're in danger, there's no suspense. You know their going to be save.

    In GoT, you have no idea what's going to happen, you're more invested, and it dramatically changes the story and takes it to a place it wouldn't have gone had the characters lived.
