5 Shows After Dark: Not Sure if Internet Has Show's Best Interest in Mind

5 Shows fry.jpg

"Dallas" on TNT at 9:00pm ET.

"Royal Pains" on USA at 9:00pm ET.

"Futurama" on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. The new commercials for this and the Comic Con panel featuring Billy West performing the "uncertain Fry" meme live prove that the writers have completely and totally bought into the internet culture of the show. I'm not 100% certain that's a good thing. Have you seen fan fiction? If they really wanted to cater to those people, basically every TV show would have to be on Cinemax and would have no plot outside increasingly improbably couplings with little regard to sexual or species preferences because, you know, why not Zoidburg?

"The Soup" on E at 10:00pm ET.

"Final Witness" on ABC at 10:00pm ET. This episode is about a woman who poisons her husbands. Super fun!

Genevieve Burgess hates summer television just as much as it hates her.
