5 Shows After Dark: New Offensive Tactic: Handoff to Ray Rice, and Then Throw Him Into the Endzone

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | September 5, 2013 | Comments ()


“Sunday Night Football: Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos” on NBC at 8:30pm ET. 27th season premiere. FOOTBALL’S BACK! Hope everyone’s got their line-up set, and if you haven’t this is serving as your friendly reminder to get on that. At least for the players involved in this game.

“Burn Notice” on USA at 9:00pm ET.

“Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators” on SyFy at 9:00pm ET. Original Telefilm. I’m just going to believe this is about a family of anthropomorphic Gators who are cajun and their struggles to be accepted by larger society as Cajun-Gator-Americans. Because that probably makes more sense than whatever this actually is about.

“Luther” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. I’ve managed to get one of my roommates and a friend of his hooked on this show. Luckily, they’ve gotten pretty good at waiting until commercials to ask questions, so I haven’t ended up ruining household harmony by snapping at someone to keep quiet while Luther is talking yet.

“Children’s Hospital” on Adult Swim at 12:00am ET.

Genevieve Burgess does enjoy Idris Elba’s rumbly voice, but it is very hard to hear over ambient noise. Or innocent questions.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Anne At Large

    I swear, if you hadn't said you were done making up shows I'd think you were getting a little over-the-top with the cajun alligator thing.

  • “Burn Notice” on USA at 9:00pm ET

    First part of the series finale, IIRC.

  • Modernlove

    I'm still bitter we're not opening at home, but go Raven's anyway! Rocking my Ray Rice jersey and I'm ready.

  • That didn't really work for y'all did it? That must have been a rough game for Ravens' fans.

  • Modernlove

    Just means we work harder next Sunday. But yeah, totally sucked last night.

  • lowercase_ryan

    It's Thursday, not Sunday.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    It is legitimately called "Sunday Night Football" or sometimes "The Thursday Edition of Sunday Night Football" and I made fun of it for a while but then I realized if I thought about it too long my nose started bleeding because my brain was trying to escape. So now I do my best to ignore it, but thanks to this comment I need to go find the tissues.

  • DeaconG

    And hopefully the NFL will do away with it. The ratings have sucked, neither the fans or the players are fond of it and it disrupts the schedule of the teams who play it.
