5 Shows After Dark: I've Hooked Most of You Just with Eddie Izzard and Chess, Right?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 16, 2012 | Comments ()


"Great White Highway" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET.

"Time Machine Chefs" on ABC at 9:00pm ET. This is cooking competition where chefs are challenged to create dishes without modern conveniences like electricity, running water, or appliances like stoves. This episode features challenges set in the Ming Dynasty and the Tudor era. Someone on the production team is obviously a fan of The Doctor, because the chefs "travel" to their time periods via a blue refrigerator.

"The Next" on The CW at 9:00pm ET. New singing competition, only this time they're picking people who actually have established local followings in specific cities.

"Bullet in the Face" on IFC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Buckle up, because this mini-series only lasts two nights. Sarah Carlson has already provided a handy summary and trailer over in this piece so some of you are already anticipating this! If you're not, go back, watch the trailer again, and get on the crazy train with the rest of us. (Edit: And which Dustin reviewed this afternoon. This is why it doesn't pay to get things done early, kids.)

"Louie" on FX at 10:30pm ET.

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

    So, "one night in Bangkok," eh?

  • dahlia6

    It does make the hard man humble.

  • Mr_Zito

    I hope they get to do some future episodes on Time Machine Chefs, where they don't have any form of energy and no natural ingredients, only canned food and twinkies to work with.

  • Lbeees

    My man! I wish they hadn't cancelled The Riches. That show was genius.

  • Socrates_Johnson

    Eddie Izzard fondling one of David Bowie's balls would have worked just as well. Wait. Nevermind.
