5 Shows After Dark: He's Basically Ours Now, Because That's Just What We Needed

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 2, 2012 | Comments ()


"2012 Olympic Summer Games" on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

"Trip Flip" on Travel Channel at 9:00pm ET. As I understand this show, they approach people already on vacation and offer to, like, improve it. The only downside is that you have to be on TV show. However, this episode takes place in Edinburgh, so I assume that when they go to improve someone's Edinburgh vacation they do that by taking them somewhere civilized.

"Misfits" on Logo at 10:00pm ET.

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

"Brand X with Russell Brand" on FX at 11:00pm ET. First season finale. So I gave this a shot or two, and it's basically Russell Brand ranting on a loosely collected series of topics with audience interaction and it really seems like it'd work great in person but no so much on TV. He's definitely excellent at keeping things moving along, but not so good at staying on topic. I have learned, though, that he's in the process of getting his green card so very soon Great Britain will no longer have to apologize to the US for him, because we'll have made him our own.

Genevieve Burgess hates summer television just as much as it hates her.
