5 Shows After Dark: Pretty Sure This Isn't Reality Series Worthy.

"How Jaws Changed the World" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET.

"Rizzoli and Isles" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Third season summer finale.

"Collection Intervention" on SyFy at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is like "Hoarders" for the memorabilia set, and the first episode deals with a couple whose entire house has been taken over by Star Wars collectibles. Something tells me this might be even more uncomfortable to watch than regular "Hoarders".

"The Glee Project" on Oxygen at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale. Tune in to get a glimpse of what randos are going to be popping in on the upcoming season of "Glee".

"The Week The Women Went" on Lifetime at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. The egalitarian in me says that it shouldn't matter what gender the adults in charge are because everyone who is an adult is capable of caring for themselves and any dependents as well as any other adult. The realist in me is well aware that this is not the case, and also wonders what town can afford to give up a healthy chunk of its workforce for a week, Lifetime reality show or not.

Genevieve Burgess is clinging desperately to the life raft that is "Shark Week" until the final summer television doldrums drive her mad.
