5 Shows After Dark: Wait, Did "Without a Trace" Come Back Somehow?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | July 28, 2013 | Comments ()


20UNFORGETTABLE-articleLarge.jpg

I feel like I’m getting better at this because the reaction to last week’s fake show was less feeling certain that it was fake and more begging me to tell you it was fake. Well, good news, everybody! “Gimme Some Sugar” was, in fact, fake. For now. I don’t doubt that a show very much like that is making its way across some reality show producer’s desk right now. Congratulations to Irina, emmalita, Monica, and DataAngel for correctly identifying it. Also, thanks to TheOtherGreg for giving me the idea for this fake show. And thanks to the producers of “Spell-Mageddon” for giving me an absolutely beautiful decoy this week. I’m almost disappointed that I didn’t make that up.

“The Killing” on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

“Unforgettable” on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. Oh my god, so many terrible ‘I totally forgot about this show!’ jokes are flitting around in my head despite the fact that I know I’m better than that. Except that I’m not, apparently. I TOTALLY FORGOT THAT “UNFORGETTABLE” WAS COMING BACK, YOU GUYS!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!

“Copper” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET.

“The Newsroom” on HBO at 10:00pm ET.

“Total Divas” on E at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new reality series following the exciting behind-the-scenes lives of the WWE Divas. Because there’s a lot of demand for that? I guess any excuse to put pretty ladies who don’t frequently wear a lot of clothing on TV is a good one.

Genevieve Burgess is anticipating that a show very much like “Gimme Some Sugar” will be on a cable network’s lineup by May, 2014. You are all now potential witnesses when she sues for credit.

    No, E! is just fucking desperate, and so they rely on the truly attention-hungry desperate to populate its increasingly irrelevant schedule.

  • Rocabarra

    Because I don't know where else to write it - tonight's episode of the Killing was the most upsetting episode of television I've ever seen. I was a bawling wreck by the end.

  • hindulovegod

    Unforgettable filmed in my neighborhood for what seemed an eternity. I got used to seeing "bodies" of actresses lying in the alleys. PAs regularly blocked my path, and Poppy Montgomery strolled around like the budget Scully. The production left notes on my door and plastered No Parking signs with the show's name on every tree and lamppost. And yet, I didn't remember what it was called nor that it had been picked up for a second season.

  • lowercase_ryan

    For the record I called Total Divas BEFORE this was posted.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Total Divas.

    Also: it's beyond ridiculous that my cable bill is as high as it is and BBCA isn't included. Fucking sharks man.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Agreed. RCN?

  • lowercase_ryan

    Cox

  • lowercase_ryan

    W00000000000000T FINALLY LOVE FOR THE KILLING!!!!

  • DayWalker

    Unforgettable, so much so you forget it never existed

  • emmalita

    I am momentarily relieved that Gimme Some Sugar is not a real show. Yet.

  • Maguita NYC

    You and me both. Can you imagine two full hours: Mistresses followed by Sugar Daddies?

    ... Isn't there a site for sugar daddies that has garnered some attention lately?

  • emmalita

    Someone said they worked for a company that has a dating site for sugar daddies and sugar babies. Which, of course! There's a dating website for everything.

  • Maguita NYC

    Hooooolddd!

    Sugar babies??

  • lowercase_ryan

    this was my reaction too.

  • Maguita NYC

    Always good to know my mind is not the only one in the awkward pedo WTF-ness is that trashy pool.

  • lowercase_ryan

    sounds like something Courtney Stodden's hubby calls her. And it makes me nauseous.

  • Maguita NYC

    Ewwwwwwww. Why the imagery!!! You just reminded me of that Matt Lauer interview.

    Downvote and sleeping on the couch!

  • lowercase_ryan

    Ha-Rumph, this guy sucks and I suffer :/

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh please, the Boys Club can handle a night on the couch. Also, stop making me the brutish barbarian!
    (and don't you dare call me fruit on this site :p).

  • lowercase_ryan

    I can handle a night on the couch, I can't handle getting lumped in with that dude. skeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevy.

  • Maguita NYC

    Well on that, you are right. You may have your flaws (man), but you are waaaay above that skeevy disturbing pedo.

  • lowercase_ryan

    gracias.

    Oh, almost forgot

  • Maguita NYC

    You know what I am throwing away right now???

    YOUR CUPCAKE.

    .COM.

  • Welldressed

    Mommy, Daddy, stop fighting! You're RUINING MY BIRTHDAY PARTY!!

  • emmalita

    did you want me to call them gold diggers?

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh! Gold diggers. Yeah, but that wouldn't put an age limit on the poor diggered...
    No diggered is not a word, but admit it, you understand what i meant by that. The poor duggered peepaws.

  • emmalita

    This is what Genevieve wrote:

    “Gimme Some Sugar” on Style at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I guess with the ever-increasing number of dating sites connecting “sugar daddies” to “sugar babies” this was inevitable. This new reality series follows three young ladies and three distinguished gentlemen looking for love, cuddles, financial support, arm candy or some combination thereof. You might be surprised at what happens! Or not, since you’d have to actually watch this to be surprised by anything on it and I sincerely hope none of you are planning on doing that. I’m actually thinking of sticking a fork in a socket in hopes of erasing any trace of this from my mind.

  • Maguita NYC

    Geneviève is REALLY good!

    It had just the right dose of reality without exaggerating.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    To be fair, actual reality series make this REALLY EASY on me. The whole genre is nearly immune to satire.

  • koko temur

    Good morning, wifey!

  • Maguita NYC

    Good evening wifey! did you sleep well?

  • koko temur

    Not particulary.. Came to school 35 minuts late, surely an improvement.

  • Maguita NYC

    Considering the none-at-all of the past few days, I'd say yes.

    But isn't your mind more at ease that you attended?

  • toblerone

    I like Poppy Montgomery (I mean look at HER) but she looks terrible as a redhead.

    Way better as a blond.

  • Maguita NYC

    She looks like Mrs. Newlin from TB.

  • kushiro -

    I see Ke(dollarsign)ha.

  • toblerone

    Meh... I don't see it.

  • Maguita NYC

    Well not pretty like that on the red carpet. But more crazy/sweet Mrs. Newlin.

  • stella

    Wait. Wait. Those aren't the same person? And I love Anna Camp...

  • toblerone

    True, but I'm not sure if Poppy could do Camp's level of crazy / sweet. She (P.M.) was pretty (emphasis on pretty) wooden in W.o.a.T. and I haven't really seen her in anything else.

  • Maguita NYC

    Oh... You were talking acting skills. Sorry, I didn't really watch Unforgettable. Forgot to.
    Yes I know and agree with you: boooooooh Maguita.

  • BWeaves

    It's pretty depressing that I think none of these are fake.
