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.
