5 Shows After Dark: If Your Love is Burning, Please See a Doctor
Survivor on CBS at 8:00pm ET.
The Tomorrow People on The CW at 9:00pm ET. This show has apparently been on for a little while, but my brain just decided I wouldn’t see it until now. It’s a remake of a British series because that’s what we’re doing these days, and it’s about people who suddenly develop super powers because in terms of television the series Heroes may as well be the Peloponnesian War.
American Horror Story on FX at 10:00pm ET.
The League on FXX at 10:00pm ET. New episode at a special time!
Burning Love on E at 10:30pm ET. Second season premiere. While I do love a good satire, I find them to be depressing at times just because I know how frighteningly accurate they can be. Ever since the Chapelle Show skit “Trading Spouses” became an actual show with exactly the same title, I’ve had a bleak outlook on the attempts to parody or satirize reality series. And if you ever think “Well, they can’t ever be THAT bad” remember that once upon a time there was a reality series where they took women away from their families, gave them plastic surgery and then made them compete in a beauty pageant. That is a thing that happened. Sincerely.
Genevieve Burgess also remembers that time they were going to make women marry a fake millionaire for… reasons? The early 2000’s were bad times for TV.
