5 Shows After Dark: How Can You Be Grouchy Next to That Grin?

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 22, 2012 | Comments ()

Mike-Rowe 5 shows.jpeg

"Big Brother" on CBS at 8:00pm ET.

"So You Think You Can Dance" on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

"Toy Hunter" on Travel at 9:00pm ET. A show about selling old toys and collectibles for money. I hate shows like this because they always show the odd toy that nets a huge price but neglect to mention how rare that is and I feel like it encourages hoarding. Also, there's a special place in hell for people who buy children toys and tell them "Now, don't take it out of the box because it might be worth a lot of money one day!" If you want them to have a nice collection of "mint in box" toys when they grown up then buy a second one and stash it somewhere they can't see it.

"Dirty Jobs" on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. Ninth season premiere. We've lost Mike Rowe to Australia for this season. So, you know, same old "Dirty Jobs" formula with about 1000% more venom.

"The Soup" on E at 10:00pm ET.

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

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Lee

    We need an SRL of innately likeable famous people. Oh! Dolly Parton!

  • TheAggroCraig

    Is there anyone on the planet that doesn't like Mike Rowe?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Does not knowing who he is count?

  • TheAggroCraig

    As for those who don't know who he is, they like him, they just don't know it yet.

  • Jen

    No in fact there is not ( and if they say they don't they're lying )

  • Mrs. Julien

    Just like Tim Gunn and Mick Foley. I've said it before and I'll say it again: We need an SRL of innately likeable famous people. Oh! Dolly Parton!

  • Puddin

    Note to self: nominate Rowe for Pajiba 10, 2013.

  • L.O.V.E.

    For the record, Rowles, I am watching Damages on DirectTV. They are really embracing the freedom to cuss up a storm. Every season has excellent guest stars. But there is a bit of deja vu/redundancy from season to season and episode to espisode that I could do without.

  • BWeaves

    Where did you find that dirty picture?

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Google image search for Mike Rowe. I had tried to find one of him and a kangaroo and there weren't any in the right size, and this ended up being better.

  • Mrs. Julien

    And yet you passed over the ones of him shirtless? Shame on you!

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I've posted like, two or three of him shirtless before! I didn't want to go to that well again. Now, if I can find one of him shirtless, with muppets, while feeding some small cuddly animal I'll use THAT photo for everything ever.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'd make it my driver's license photo.
