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.

    "The Week the Women Went."
    Sooooo ... Lifetime's remade "Lysistrata?"

    I refuse to believe that anyone at the Lifetime Network even has the foggiest clue what "Lysistrata" is. I think its one of those law of averages things where they just happened to stumble upon a similar idea. There no way in hell it could be anything else.

    I saw this show's concept and really wish I could be a part of the experiment. While I completely love my husband, my three year old, my two year old and my dog...I would really love a few minutes to read my book in peace and quiet without having to worry about whether or not everyone is still breathing, no one has a lego stuck in his nose, the house is clean, I don't have any papers to grade, all bills have been paid..etc, etc.

    Hugh Heffner is rolling in his grave right now...
    Good for you!...I mean it.

    Without my mom and I, my dad is completely helpless. I mean, its a serious worry every time we leave, because we have no idea if we're coming home to a smoking crater. He will literally set trash on top of the garbage can. Its a pedal can for God's sake. He doesn't even have to do anything, just step on the pedal and drop crap in, but apparently that's too hard. He'll set a dirty dish on the counter beside the sink, but not in the sink. Hell, he won't even flush the toilet half the time, and tries to blame that on mom and me. Not kidding, he left dog shit in the floor for the whole day the other day, and couldn't figure out why the house smelled so bad. I honestly don't know if he's that lazy or that stupid, and really, what do you even hope for in that situation? That lazy means he'd probably burn to death if he dropped cigarette ash on his shirt because he wouldn't smack it out, but that stupid means he really shouldn't have as many guns in the house as he does.

    What I'm getting to is that if this town is full of men like my dad, the kids are fucked and I give it til dinner time before the whole town becomes some Mad Max super Thunderdome style of apocalypse.

    Should make for good viewing, though.
