5 Shows After Dark: I'm Sure This Was Once a Compelling Image
65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS at 8:00pm ET. Neil Patrick Harris is hosting, which is only right and good. I’m worried for the day he gets tapped to do the Oscars because something about that event seems to give otherwise talented hosts a serious case of the yips. Maybe because, while they want the host to be funny, the Oscars don’t have much of a sense of humor about themselves. Anyway, if they don’t get him to sing, I think we should figure out a way to get the FCC to fine them for abusive behavior towards the viewers.
Sunday Night Football: Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers on NBC at 8:20pm ET.
Breaking Bad on AMC at 9:00pm ET. New 75 minute episode. Second to last one, guys! Hold onto your butts.
Dexter on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. Series finale. Limping across the finish line months or years after most people stopped cheering for it. Those of you still watching the show: what’s the call on Dexter surviving the episode? Likely, unlikely, you’d rather see someone else get bumped off? Let’s hear it. I was going to say it can’t be worse than the last Dexter book, but apparently the series kept going after the absolutely appalling third book which is when I quit on them so I have no basis for snarky comparisons.
Copper on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.
Genevieve Burgess finally has her computer back, and can assure you that no questionable photos will have made their way to the internet.
