5 Shows After Dark: Such a Majestic Creature. Let's Shove Bread Up Its Butt.

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | November 27, 2013 | Comments ()


Survivor on CBS at 8:00pm ET.

Criminal Minds on CBS at 9:00pm ET. I always find it interesting what shows go into reruns the day before Thanksgiving and which shows don’t. Apparently, the way we should all prepare for a full day of eating is by watching absurdly unrealistic depictions of “serial killers.” Sounds about right.

Saturday Night Live Thanksgiving on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Special presentation.

Bible Secrets Revealed on History at 10:00pm ET. Timely, History channel. I’m sure this is going to blow the roof off the whole “Bible” thing. Right before Christmas too! Bold move. Or it would be if I thought any of this would be anything other than the standard set of Bible “revelations” that are dragged out and dusted off every couple of years.

Burning Love on E at 10:30pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess wishes all the US-ians a wonderful Thanksgiving, as she tries to figure out why she keeps signing up to do Turkey Trots.

    So it's finally US Thanksgiving tomorrow, which means Pajiba will be virtually deserted.


  • e jerry powell

    There's no damn "Scandal." I have to find something to do.

  • Ben

    You think that's bad, I'm in australia, and actually going to have to do WORK. Instead of waste my day on the internet.

    WORK! What is the world coming to?!

  • Uriah_Creep

    Oh, I have to work too, as our Canadian Thanksgiving was over a month ago. Besides, I'm self-employed, so I work when there's work. But yes, work really cuts into my goofing-off time sometimes, which is most unacceptable. And now I will stop typing the word "work".

  • emmalita

    Some of us Muricans will be desperately trying to avoid football and also looking for the FUN.

  • Why would you want to avoid football? 10 hours of football is one of the great things about Thanksgiving, right up there with a turkey the size of a five year old child and cranberry sauce.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    you lose me at "cranberry sauce"

  • emmalita

    Cranberry sauce and pecan pie are divisive in my family. I am in the pro-cranberry/anti-pecan pie faction.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Ooh, I am pro pecan pie, anti sauce. But nobody in my family makes pecan piees for this holiday. 2 Apple, 2 Pumpkin, 1 Chocolate Dream. And the strategy is to go first for the pie that the most people want (chocolate); eventually there will be lots of pumpkin pie left for the half dozen people who eat it.

  • e jerry powell

    Cranberry relish and cherry pie, thanks. I still want more turkey.

  • emmalita

    My bff makes the best cherry pie. I'm having some for breakfast.

  • e jerry powell


    I always thought that the tradition was sleeping through half of all that football. Tryptophan, you know...

  • What you do is, you doze a little when there are commercials or they cut away to something heartwarming about the holidays to see if you can draw anybody out. Then when someone(usually a woman) tries to change the channel, you open your eyes, say 'Hey, I'm watching that' and then disown them.

  • e jerry powell

    I watched a buncha engineering geeks hurling punkins. Can't fall asleep with those monsters screeching every time a catapult fires.

  • emmalita

    I love pumpkin chucking. My nephew and I tried to build a trebuchet this summer, but his dad kept getting involved and screwing it up. We plan to try again in the Spring.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Oh sure, but there probably won't be any new posts. Where will we play, Emm? WHERE WILL WE PLAY??

    (Also, can you bring me some turkey and some of those "dark side" cookies? Thanks.)

  • emmalita

    Will Dustin make a thread for Pajibans who hate football? An MST3K group watch thread? Will we just have to co-opt an existing thread?

  • Uriah_Creep

    Ha! It took me a second to figure out what the map meant. Thanks for the Turkey. I'm sure it will be delicious.

    But do not get me involved in your malicious anti-football crusade. Like many Canuckians, I love American football, and will attempt to watch the Green Bay-Detroit game while doing some work here at home. After that, I plan to check back here for ravings from friends, both Murican and otherwise.


  • emmalita

    Apparently the turkey was ridiculously dry. I wouldn't know, I don't eat turkey. But the company was great. My bff and I watched a double header of Dredd and Troll Hunter. We laughed so hard our fathers were worried we had nefarious plans.

    Happy Thanksgiving and Marvelous Thursday.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Hi Emmalita! * waves * I'm glad to hear you had fun; I haven't seen Troll Hunter yet (it's on a list), but I found Dredd great in a really silly way.

    But I've learned now that you don't like football or pecan pie (!!), and don't eat turkey? I swear, sometimes it's like I don't even know you!

  • emmalita

    I know! It's like my name might not even BE emmalita. Jeez! You just can't trust anybody on the Internet any more.

    Troll Hunter was awesome, but Dredd was A-Mazing.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Yeah, next you'll tell me you're not even female. Ha ha!


  • emmalita

    Yes, but what species? Make sure you ask all the right questions. ;)

  • Uriah_Creep

    I knew it... you're actually a robot. Well, my hat's off to Skynet, because you write better than 99% of internet commenters.

  • emmalita

    Don't spread it around too much. I don't want to have to change my identity AGAIN. Disqus is a jealous bitch.

  • Semilitterate

    The Lions T-day game is the first game of the year at my house. Today they done themselves proud.

  • e jerry powell

    Damn right, the scumbags!

  • That game made me want to shoot myself in the head. That was some Vikings-level embarrassing, right there. I figured we'd have an uphill climb against the Lions, but that was just sad.

  • DeaconG

    That wasn't Vikings-level embarrassing, that was Buccaneers-level embarrassing. Gonna be a long season in Green Bay until Aaron gets back. I was grimacing the entire time.

    Was invited over to the neighbors' house this year, we ate like kings; the turkey was moist, my first attempt at garlic mashed potatoes was given multiple thumbs up, if there wasn't enough hog in my collard greens no one complained, and a good time was had by all.

    Then tried to get pictures of the Falcon 9 launch for the second time and the launch scrubbed AGAIN (engines shut down at T-0).

    After that I got home and nappy time kicked in...

    For reference's sake, hit the reply button again.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I must be doing something wrong, Jerry, because that didn't work for me, although I can delete the comment (see above).

  • e jerry powell

    Actually, it works if you're in the middle of a comment you don't really want to send. I think I may have misunderstood what you were trying to do.

  • Uriah_Creep

    That's actually good to know too.

    Holy shit, my accidental period up there (caused by Disqus' refusal to let me back out of a comment) got an upvote! It wasn't even a particularly eloquent period, so thank you, Wrestling Fan.
