5 Shows After Dark: Basically, They're Just Losing Some Insincere Efforts at Being Charming

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 6, 2012 | Comments ()


"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.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Alex the not so odd.

    Thats an old header picture - the other woman hasn't been in the show for a few years now. So it's 1 woman and 9 men,

  • luckypete

    Mentioning President Roslin made me realize that I can't find any reviews of Battlestar Galactica on Pajiba, which I'm sure is a mistake on my part, since I know Pajiba is far too superior for such mistakes (whereas I am not a superior anything).

    2010 Olympic Summer Games” on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

    No such thing...

  • googergieger

    Surely if NBC had a time machine they would go back to a time their network was actually relevant? Or at the very least still actually considered a network?

  • BarbadoSlim

    Somebody explain to me again why I should give a shit about Kira Sedgwick?

  • Is that the cast of The Closer? 2 women and 9 men? I give you network television, ladies and gentlemen.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    Yes. And the new series, "Major Crimes" beats that by featuring… 2 women and 6 men. I shit you not: http://www.tntdrama.com/title/...

  • BarbadoSlim

    I think I'm getting the hang of this ;-)

  • PerpetualIntern

    I didn't agree with the downvote, so I upvoted both of y'all.
