5 Shows After Dark: Basically, They're Just Losing Some Insincere Efforts at Being Charming
"2010 Olympic Summer Games" on NBC at 8:00pm ET. More apparatus finals, the men's 400m, qualifying rounds of men's springboard diving, men's beach volleyball quarterfinal, and men's spring final in track cycling. And probably some more about Michael Phelps, because we haven't heard enough about him over the last two and a half Olympics yet.
"Market Warriors" on PBS at 8:00pm ET.
"The Closer" on TNT at 9:00pm ET. They're making a really big deal about this show ending and Brenda going away forever, but there's a new show featuring almost exactly the same cast headed up by President Roslin starting almost immediately after "The Closer" ends. So basically, we're saying goodbye to Kyra Sedgewick's southern accent and giant purse. Big loss there.
"Top Gear" on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. The guest is Patrick Stewart, which is fantastic.
"Warehouse 13" on SyFy at 9:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess hates summer television just as much as it hates her.
