5 Shows After Dark: Take It Off!
"Michael Wood's Story of England" on PBS at 8:00pm ET. First season finale. We're up to the birth of Modern England.
"Hell's Kitchen" on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
"Masterchef" on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Ever notice that people seem to cry like, a whole lot on reality series? I sort of wonder what forms of psychological torture the PAs resort to in order to turn what are (sometimes) normal-ish people into weeping sacks of feelings for the cameras.
"White Collar" on USA at 9:00pm ET. I think it's going to take a while for viewers of "White Collar" who have seen Magic Mike to wish this show featured the same amount of Matt Bomer in nice suits, but also some more of Matt Bomer taking off those nice suits. Perhaps to some dance tracks.
"Franklin and Bash" on TNT at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess hates summer television just as much as it hates her.
