5 Shows After Dark: Beating a Dead Presidential Horse
Killing Kennedy on National Geographic Channel at 8:00pm ET. Original telefilm. I’ve seen a lot of Kennedy specials lately, I guess because it’s almost the 50th anniversary of the event. There’s a part of me that wonders how long the fascination with Kennedy and his death will persist, because I feel like it’s mostly a Boomer thing but I have met some younger people who seem to gleefully indulge in it. I’ve never had particularly strong feelings either way, but after Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning I’m less convinced that any government agency would be able to keep a secret that big for five decades. But I guess the fascination with the topic provides steady work for strong-jawed actors with good hair, so good for Rob Lowe. Also, Ginnifer Goodwin looks pretty great as Jackie.
Sunday Night Football: Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints on NBC at 8:20pm ET.
Boardwalk Empire on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET.
Masters of Sex on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Mmm, that thing where I start to seriously contemplate how long I could survive on rice and beans to be able to afford premium channels with fancy TV shows.
Genevieve Burgess is evaluating that movie purely on aesthetics, because we all know how it ends.
