5 Shows After Dark: Reality Shows: The Last Hope for the Culturally Irrelevant

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 19, 2012 | Comments ()


"Sunday Night Football: Preseason: Indianapolis Colts at Pittsburgh Steelers" on NBC at 8:00pm ET. With this line up, I'm assuming at least a couple of you are rooting for Bane.

"Falling Skies" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Second season finale.

"Copper" on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Another show that's previously been discussed on Pajiba. It sort of looks like someone got the idea to do a television show set in the world of "Gangs of New York" ten years too late.

"Married to Jonas" on E! at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. New reality series starring the oldest Jonas brother and his wife. Weirdly, the Jonas brothers are also in the middle of "reuniting" to record a new album. Isn't that such a crazy coincidence? Listen, boylets, we've all already figured out that the little one is the only one with any real singing talent and don't talk to me about "reuniting" until you've split up Gallagher brothers style and literally can't stand the sight of each other.

"The Newsroom" on HBO at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess can't wait for regular television to return.
