5 Shows After Dark: Yay, TV is Finally Coming Back For Real!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 26, 2013 | Comments ()


Parks and Recreation on NBC at 8:00pm ET. One hour sixth season premiere.

Glee on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. I think this is the Beatles episode in case you want to see a lot of songs that are greatly beloved in American culture being auto-tuned to within an inch of their lives to help illustrate the emotions of Rachel Berry and the Not-Rachels. Also, two weeks until the “Cory Monteith died and all we get to do is this heartbreaking tribute” episode.

Grey’s Anatomy on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour 10th season premiere. Oh god, time for me to start building my tiny shrine to Cristina Yang.

The Michael J. Fox Show on NBC at 9:01pm ET. Series premiere. This got the slot over The Crazy Ones because I have slightly higher hopes for Michael J. Fox than I do for Robin Williams’s 1,000th attempt at a career revival.

Parenthood on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Your weekly cry is back. Now I get to hear from Elementary fans about why I didn’t pick their show. What they don’t realize is that this is actually a carefully controlled and planned scenario and their reactions to it will inform my bewilderingly accurate snap judgements of them based on the thinnest shreds of evidence. Because I know they’re into that sort of thing.

Genevieve Burgess is judging you while ignoring her own massive personality flaws and social difficulties.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • stella

    No. No. Damnit I missed Parks and Rec? I guess Ill go eat some waffles. Im so sorry Leslie.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    Bunk from The Wire is on MJF show and no one told me. Fuck YOU, Internet.

  • Leland Eidson

    I felt the same way. Honestly though I think I WANT to like the MJF Show a lot more than I ACTUALLY like the MJF Show.

  • bastich

    I don't know...Marty McFly vs. Mork and Buffy? Tough call.

  • BiblioGlow

    That is not even remotely a tough call. Who are you people who would love anyone above Michael J. Fox? Do you realize that the existence of his show makes a Marty/Doc televised reunion possible??

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    I hadn't considered that. And maybe we'll find out what the hell happened to Tracy Yothers? Except I'm prolly the only person who cares about that. Still though...

  • thatstrangewoman

    Maybe you don't know what happened to her because you're looking her up as Tracy when she's Tina?

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    ok. that explains it.

  • RilesSD

    Robin Williams doesn't need a career revival because he never went away. Fuck all y'all haters. He's a national treasure.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    Kind of love you for this.

  • Wigamer

    I am looking forward to bidding adieu to Monica Potter's cone head bald cap, but yay Bravermans!!


  • Becks

    Mine too (though I'm talking about Parenthood)! Let's join hands and bounce up and down excitedly until the evening's entertainment begins!

  • e jerry powell

    This "end every single season on a major catastrophe" shit is getting old. Eventually Shonda's gonna have to play the Godzilla card, and that's going to be the end of all her credibility as a writer.

  • Lovely Bones

    When the hell did Shonda Rhimes ever have credibility as a writer?

  • e jerry powell

    There is that, yes. So tonight she throws a solid hour of tragedy followed by forty minutes of slapstick. She could blend things better.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I'll take it as long as Godzilla gets to do the introspective voice over for that episode.

  • dizzylucy

    Having sat through a lot of Godzilla movies as a kid with my younger brother, and knowing all too well the Godzilla screech, I now desperately want someone to make this.

  • e jerry powell

    You win all the cupcakes.
