5 Shows After Dark: This Photo Just Gave Me a Small Pop Culture Stroke
9/11 Firehouse on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. This is a special featuring firefighters from “Ten House” who were the first on the scene at the World Trade Center recounting their experiences in the early moments after the planes hit.
Royal Pains on USA at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season finale. I am amazed at how popular this show apparently is, both because it’s one of those shows where I don’t personally know anyone who watches it and also because the concept of a doctor who caters exclusively to the incredibly wealthy doesn’t really seem like it’d be a crowd pleaser these days. But I’m sure the good people at USA know what they’re doing. I mean, beyond producing inoffensive dramedies that can cause you to lose four hours of a Saturday afternoon in the blink of an eye.
The Bridge on FX at 10:00pm ET.
Broadchurch on BBCA at 10:00pm ET.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on FXX at 10:00pm ET. Alright, readers, I only have five spots to fill and I’m not going to list both “It’s Always Sunny” and “The League” every week so I’m just going to keep switching back and forth unless you all state a clear preference in the comments. So figure out which one you like better (or which one you’re more likely to forget is airing) and let me know so I can start blaming all of you when people act like I somehow forgot how to read TV listings because one particular show they enjoy is not among the five mentioned here.
