5 Shows After Dark: Like Any of You Are Watching Anything Else

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 29, 2013 | Comments ()


Sunday Night Football: New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons on NBC at 8:20pm ET.

Breaking Bad on AMC at 9:00pm ET. 75 minute series finale. Seriously, anyone want to start some death pools? I have absolutely no in-depth knowledge of the show, but I’m happy to facilitate some friendly wagers.

Homeland on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere.

Masters of Sex on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. You guys, like, everything is happening on TV tonight. EVERYTHING. So if your particular show wasn’t listed tonight then, I’m sorry. This is one of the only times I’ve looked at the listings and realized I could have easily made a “20 Shows After Dark” with what was available to me.

Hello Ladies on HBO at 10:30pm ET. Series premiere. This is Stephen Merchant’s new show, and if you’re not a fan of uncomfortable comedy then you probably shouldn’t watch this. If watching someone continually bungle basic social interactions with ever escalating levels of awkwardness on both sides of the interaction, than this is the show for you.

Genevieve Burgess knows that “Breaking Bad” might end tonight but that the arguments about the “right” way to view the characters is the gift that will keep on giving.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • e jerry powell

    More Sex!

  • Michelle

    So many shows! I'm looking forward to The Good Wife, as well.

  • PDamian

    Foyle's War.

  • BWeaves

    Yup, me too.

    I don't get Showtime or HBO, and I must be the only person on the planet who couldn't care less about Breaking Bad.

  • Sara Habein

    Damn straight.

  • hippyherb

    I am about to start watching series 1 in about 10 mins. I have heard good things about it.

  • John W

    I'm curious to see what the ratings are like for the finale.

  • emmalita

    HUGE!!! Is my prediction.

  • maydays

    First thing I've watched live in recent memory. I saw COMMERECIALS!

  • kirbyjay

    They really stocked up on them didn't they? Very annoying

  • blacksred

    well actually my husband and i have to leave all technology behind at LEAST until the end of this week. we just started marathoning Breaking bad about 2 weeks ago and are not caught up yet. so Homeland and The Good Wife it is.

  • TheAggroCraig

    Bob's Burgers, then Breaking Bad, then discussing Breaking Bad with my friends until I have to kick them out so I can go to bed.

  • Jill

    That is the correct way to spend your evening!

  • Maguita NYC

    If Stephen Merchant would be prancing, strutting and doing a bit of lip-sync, the show might be worth a bit of discomfort.

  • From September to February, nothing trumps the NFL on my TV on Sundays. That's the Platinum Rule.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Since the Giants have screwed the pooch for the season, my NFL viewing will mostly be reduced to hate-watching Cowboys & Eagles games.

    Ugh. Guess I root for the-team-which-must-not-be-named? (at least they have a fun QB to watch)

  • kirbyjay

    What a night for the television machine. I watched the Patriots until 9, DVRed the rest and watched Breaking Bad. Then I went back to the game where I left off. Homeland and The Good Wife will be my Monday night viewing.

  • Helo

    I've got NE vs. ATL tonight, and don't get AMC in my particular country, so I will likely be avoiding the Internet at all costs until I have completely digested Walter White's Last Stand (fuck "Felina", this is what I'm calling this finale).

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Today has been a pretty shitty day for it. I had the London game and now the Denver-Philly blowout. Doesn't help that the Packers have a bye.

  • The Packers bye week is coming at a really inconvenient time for me, fantasy wise. I had to fall back on Matt Flynn. Carolina being on bye as well isn't really helping, either.

  • Sean

    Why the hell would you even have Flynn on your roster? There are at least 30 better choices.

  • Because I've also got Aaron Rodgers and decided to stock up on WR and TE's. By the time I got around to drafting a backup QB, all the good ones were gone. I tried to get Pryor, but he's sidelined today.

  • Sean

    How many people in your league?

  • Sean

    I've already seen Masters of Sex and Homeland. I will watch Boardwalk Empire after BB. And perhaps the end of the football game. Bobs Burgers, and American Dad will have to wait til tomorrow.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    I don't know enough to predict any deaths, but I'd be willing to bet the whole show was just a meth induced dream of Beakman from Beakman's World.

  • I don't even watch Breaking Bad and I am very invested in what happens to Jesse Pinkman. THIS IS WHAT PAJIBA DOES TO ME.

  • TCH

    He is an adorable meth cook.

  • ryallen

    Well recently, slave is a more accurate term.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Meth cooking slave, then.

  • kirbyjay

    How long exactly was Jessie held by Opie Hitler anyway. Walt's hair grew back, how long does that take?

  • Maguita NYC

    Same here... I'm debating whether I should watch while I'm still in the middle of 1st season...

  • Wigamer

    No, no, no!!!!

  • Maguita NYC

    You're tempting me... :D

  • emmalita

    Stop with the taunting!

  • Al Borland's Beard

    I debated between starting Breaking Bad and Mad Men on Netflix. I went with Mad Men. I'm okay with my decision.

  • emmalita

    Oh Mad Men will have it's moments of sheer horror. Which season are you watching?

  • kirbyjay

    I started on Mad Men and stopped after S3 because I got tired of the sexism. I watched Breaking Bad in it's entirety. I guess I have more patience and interest in meth dealers than I do in chauvinism. Go figure.

  • emmalita

    I find Mad Men fascinating in part because of the sexism. Both of my grandmother were professionals, though not in NYC. The stories they told about how they were treated by their male co-workers and the things they did to get around the sexism always fascinated me. I don't have anymore sympathy for Don Draper than I do for Walter White, though they are very different kinds of asshole.

  • Blake

    Bob's Burgers! 8:30 on FOX!

  • Al Borland's Beard

    That's what I'll be watching.
