5 Shows After Dark: BRADY SMASH!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | November 24, 2013 | Comments ()


The 2013 American Music Awards on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Is it just me or does it seem like every year that record company profits go down, these music awards shows get bigger?

Sunday Night Football: Denver Broncos at New England Patriots on NBC at 8:20pm ET. Bets on when Tom Brady just breaks down and starts sobbing on the field and/or kills his receivers?

Boardwalk Empire on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season finale. There’s two new shows premiering after this, one of which is a remake of a British series and one of which has been imported from Australia. I’d make a crack here about the lack of original material, but since I suspect it’s my beloved Game of Thrones that’s sucking up their development money I can’t really complain.

The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET.

Masters of Sex on Showtime at 10:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess would feel worse for Tom Brady if he weren’t an incredibly handsome and well-paid football star with a supermodel wife who’s the real bread-winner of the family.

Damon and Affleck Rouse a DC Comic, and a Day of the Doctor Reboot | Christ, There's No Winning This One. The Beastie Boys Go To Battle With GoldieBlox Over The Song 'Girls.'

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Tom Brady could lose both his arms in a horrific double-glazing accident and he would still get no sympathy from me because fuck the Patriots, that's why. The only thing worse than a Patriots fan is a Raiders fan.

  • kirbyjay

    You hate Patriots fans because you're jealous that your team hasn't been dominant for 12 years. I've been to many games and it is nothing like the thugs at Jets or Eagles games.
    So yeah, eff u too.

  • Not been dominant? There is a reason they call Green Bay 'Titletown' you know. You know what my team hasn't done, though? They haven't cheated their way into an 18-0 season and a Super Bowl berth only to lose in an embarassing fashion to a 20 to 1 underdog. That dubious honor belongs solely to the Patriots.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Re:the header pic. It looks like someone just told Tom that Gisele was wearing a pair of his Uggs.

  • e jerry powell

    That would be anyone's reaction to Gisele in Uggs.

  • e jerry powell

    I dunno. Everyone at ESPN is riding Manning's dick so intently, I can't help but feel that Brady will pull it out.

  • Bananaranma

    Nailed it.

  • e jerry powell

    I high-fived myself in the mirror.

  • kirbyjay

    Patriots 34- Broncos 31.
    Patriots score 31 unanswered points in second half.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    The Australian series is not Serangoon Road, by any chance?

  • space_oddity

    The Australian series is a spinoff from Summer Heights High, a series from a few years ago. I can't wait for Ja'mie: Private School Girl.

  • Fabius_Maximus


    I wonder why I got a downvote for a mere question.

  • Martin Holterman

    I want to apologise for the fact that I wrote something snarky a few weeks ago about the fact that these updates mention American Football. I've since visited the US again, and I discovered that occasionally as many as THREE NETWORKS BROADCAST THIS SNOREFEST AT THE SAME TIME!!! (This made me much more appreciative of the fact that at least in Europe they only ever sell the broadcasting rights for football to one TV station at a time.)

    So I imagine that useful advice about how to avoid it is much appreciated for the US-based readers of Pajiba. Thanks for your public service.

  • bastich

    As with any other activity, getting hilariously drunk improves the US football-watching experience immeasurably.

  • NateMan

    I agree pro football is pretty boring. But, after having watched a few games with extended family members over the past few years, I've come to decide it's not nearly as boring as:
    Or pretty much any sport that isn't hockey. So I don't mind.

  • Jiffylush

    "I read a website from another country and it occasionally talks about the most popular sport in that country, my life is so hard."

    If this is your big complaint then your life is wonderful.

  • Martin Holterman

    Not a complaint... An expression of empathy, of my commiserations for people who live in a country where so many prominent TV stations broadcast the same (boring) sport at the same time.

  • kirbyjay

    Snorefest? Try watching men kick a ball back and forth and back and forth and back and forth......................

  • Martin Holterman

    I'd rather not, which is why I'm happy that football broadcasting rights tend to belong to only one TV station at a time.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Technically, there are multiple rights belonging to multiple TV stations.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    At least something happens every minute. Not down - waiting - down - waiting - special team - waiting - and so forth.

    Don't get me wrong. I like watching American Rugby as well, but football is just more engaging (Rugby even more so).

  • kirbyjay

    But what happens every minute? Men kick ball back and forth and back and forth and back and forth.....
    I'll admit there are way too many commercials in football but that is why I DVR it and start watching 40 minutes into the game. As for the action, there is running and passing and catching and blocking and tackleing and fumbling and intercepting.....stuff happens!

  • e jerry powell

    Between long periods of waiting, unless you're watching college ball in the SEC.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Stuff happens, but you have to wait for it. AF is nothing more than lawn chess.

    In football, you have a fluid game where two teams try to literally think on their feet to outmaneuver the other. You have difficult passes, defender's challenges, complex tactics; all of it topped by goals.

  • Siege

    And after a zillion hours of that (and some of the most dramatic and fake fallings-down ever) the score ends up at (drumroll please) 0-1!

  • Guest

    Bob's Burgers @ 8:30 on FOX!

  • NateMan

    1. Music award shows are like the Roman Empire. The worse things are the more they'll try to distract you. That's my big metaphorical thought after a fair amount of Bushmill's.
    2. Brady will never be broken.
