Focusing on the "After" Part of "Happily Ever After"

Harry Potter: The Making of Diagon Alley on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Special presentation. A fun little puff piece on the new Diagon Alley section of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter down in Orlando. Honestly, you might as well call it a one hour long commercial starring Meredith Viera. If you’ve got Harry Potter obsessed children of an impressionable age, I’d recommend you find a way to keep them away from the TV for this hour.

112 Weddings on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a documentary by a former wedding videographer who went back and spoke to ten couples whose weddings he’d filmed years later to see how their marriages were doing. In the words of filmmaker Doug Block he “loved the idea of starting a movie where most Hollywood movies end, which is the bride coming down the aisle.” It should be an interesting and difficult examination of how people’s relationships grow and change within marriage.

24: Live Another Day on Fox at 9:00pm ET.

Swamp People on History at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season finale. Join me in wishing this was a documentary about Swamp Thing and his family striving for public acceptance not as Swamp Things but as Swamp People instead of just another obviously staged reality series.

Under the Dome on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.

Genevieve Burgess is down a laptop thanks to a case of graphics card flu, so all of this week’s entries are being written on Sunday. She apologizes for any unforeseeable inaccuracies or slightly out-of-date references.

    I could only give the Weddings documentary 15 minutes before I felt my heart start to break in a bad way. I've been married over 10 years and it's horrifying to start watching couples around you go down in flames or settle into parallel lives. I watched the part about the beautiful woman who gave up the Korean university position to marry her American husband and the couple with three kids who are divorcing after infidelity. Maybe the beginning or the end was going to be uplifting, but what I saw was solidly wrenching.

  • "If you’ve got Harry Potter obsessed children of an impressionable age, I’d recommend you find a way to keep them away from the TV for this hour." Or if you're a Harry Potter obsessed adult of an impressionable age(and questionable taste.)

    Genevieve, you should get one of those Apple "labtops". Apparently you can make $5,000 an hour or some such on those. With that kind of financial solvency, maybe you could finally break the bonds of slavery that link you to Pajiba.

  • True story, up until last Christmas, my grandmother was convinced that laptops were in fact called 'labtops' because they had been created to help scientists work in labs and to give them little portable computers they could carry around and put on the countertops in their labs.

    I kinda love your grandmother now.

    I think "Under the Dome" is having its season premiere, not the finale.

    Unless they just said screw it and are going with "the dome ran out of air." Which, admittedly, I'm kinda down with.

    I'm guessing NBC has a vested interest in Diagon Alley since Fallon spent all last week in Orlando and every show was basically an hour long commercial for it.

  • Yup, NBCUniversal owns Universal Studios which is where the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located.
