5 Shows After Dark: The Term "Frenemies" Seems Strangely Applicable Here

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 4, 2013 | Comments ()


“Digfellas” on Travel at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. The Travel Channel website refers to these gentlemen as “relic hunters” rather than “treasure hunters” to lower expectations, I guess. Really, all this makes me think is that I should have kept up my fake show game for a few more weeks.

“Luther” on BBCA at 9:00pm ET.

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” on FXX at 10:00pm ET. Ninth season premiere. That’s not a typo, this is on a new network called FXX so double check your DVRs to make sure they’re recording the right thing. Because if you’re recording FX at 10:00pm ET you’re going to end up with “The Bridge” and that’s not even a little bit funny.

“The Real World/Road Rules Challenge” on MTV at 10:00pm ET.

“The League” on FXX at 10:30pm ET. Fifth season premiere. It is Fantasy Football season! Which means I have a team I have to continually remind myself to care about even though I regularly forget who’s actually on it (Blood and First Downs, in case you’re wondering) and some other people will say horrible things to their friends based on the actions of men they have absolutely no control or influence over and we all pretend it’s not just a more socially acceptable form of Dungeons and Dragons with athletic competition standing in for 20-sided die. Hooray!

Genevieve Burgess devotes enough mental energy to her Fantasy Football league that she definitely can’t be accused of being the worst player, but not much more.
