5 Shows After Dark: Biggest First Week Album Sales Ever, These Guys Right Here

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | July 24, 2012 | Comments ()


"Deadliest Catch" on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. Two hour eighth season finale.

"Hells Kitchen" on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

"15 Awesomest Boy Bands" on E at 9:00pm ET. This implies that there is some qualitative difference between boy bands. Now, I'm not some grouch that hates all pop music, but I think we can admit that boy bands are all cut from the same cloth with slight variations based on trends at the time. One Directions "That's What Makes You Beautiful" could've been a hit for Backstreet Boys or *NSync, probably even New Kids on the Block with just a few minor tweaks to account for their particular marketing team developed personalities. It's a little comforting to know that the same basic formula can appeal to teenage girls across decades.

"The Godfather Legacy" on history at 9:00pm ET. Two hour special presentation.

"Love in the Wild" on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale. Wow, a reality series that only runs eight episodes. That's impressive in a strange way.

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