5 Shows After Dark: I Hope You Have Your Favorite Intoxicant Handy

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | July 11, 2013 | Comments ()


“Summer Camp” on USA at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. A fairly typical “men vs. women” competitive reality series dressed up as though it’s one of those summer camps that only seem to exist in movies or TV shows. That or I missed out on yet another cultural touchstone by only ever attending Girl Scout sleep-away camps.

“Burn Notice” on USA at 9:00pm ET.

“Sharknado” on SyFy at 9:00pm ET. Original telefilm. I feel this title raises more questions than it will ever be able to answer, but I’ve been told I’m prone to over-thinking things. However, in this case I don’t believe it’s over-thinking so much as it is thinking at all. Which means I’m likely not the target audience for “Sharknado.”

“Airplane Repo” on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A whole series about a guy who goes around repossessing airplanes. You’d think he’d have an easier time with the job if he didn’t have a camera crew following him around.

“Hollywood Game Night” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Celebrities engage in fun party games along with two ‘normal’ contestants. Hosted by Jane Lynch. Unfortunately, the short list of celebrities scheduled to appear includes a lot of Pajiba favorites, which means this may be something some of you end up watching.

Genevieve Burgess’s marvels at the sort of mind that can dream up something like “Sharknado.”

    Normally, I would have thought Sharknado was the fake, but knowing what I do, sigh . . .

  • Fredo

    Sharknado was everything I hoped it would be. I still haven't stopped laughing my ass off at that Ian Ziering vs Great White Shark faceoff.

  • koko temur

    i think that last time you distracted us with doughnuts and this time you distract us wuth the greatness that is "sharknado" while sneaking in "airplane repo".

  • emmalita

    Airplane Repo is for real. http://www.tvrage.com/Airplane...

    Somehow, that is the most depressing thing I've typed all day.

  • koko temur

    im not very good in this game

  • googergieger

    Sure, Sharknado gets picked up, but my pitched idea, "Jewnami!" is nowhere to be found! I mean Mel Gibson bought the rights, but still.

  • e jerry powell


    I'm such a goober.

  • Repo

    I'm so ready. I sense a major Tara Reid comeback starting tonight.

  • bleujayone

    *reaches for the two liter bottle of vanilla extract purchased on a whim while in Tijuana ... and a shot glass.

    Well, if nothing else my farts will smell like sugar cookies tomorrow.

    Until I looked at the check saying $7424, I accept that my neighbours mother was like they say actualy receiving money in there spare time from their laptop.. there uncles cousin started doing this less than 9 months and recently took care of the dept on their cottage and got a brand new BMW 5-series. read more at, w­w­w.w­o­r­k­7­0.c­o­m
