I Really Do Envy Her Lipstick Collection

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 15, 2014 | Comments ()


American Idol on Fox at 8:00pm ET. 13th season premiere. Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban are the judges this go around. I always wonder if the producers have some kind of hierarchy of personal tragedy they work off of to cast the audition show. I mean, you can’t let ANYONE with a sob story get on camera or onto the next round. But you’ve got to have a few, and I’m sure they’ve got their preferences. I’d like to see it, just out of morbid curiosity.

Arrow on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Second season winter premiere.

Criminal Minds on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season winter premiere. This episode focuses on Penelope Garcia, the technical analyst of the team. I’m a bit up and down on the character, just because it seems like some writers do a better job of making her a real person as opposed to an exposition machine in cute glasses. Anyway, we get to find out how she came to work for Hotch so if you’ve spend nine seasons wondering about that, wonder no more.

American Horror Story on FX at 10:00pm ET.

My Strange Addiction on TLC at 10:00pm ET. I have to tell you all, just reading the titles of these episodes gives me a flavor for how varied and unpredictable humans can be and I dearly wish I could go back to a time when I wasn’t as aware of those things.

Genevieve Burgess finds humanity deeply troubling most days, and TLC isn’t helping that.

    I love Criminal Minds and Garcia! They've always hinted at how she got her job, but never gone into detail so I'm excited to find out.

    I can't believe Criminal Minds has been on the air for 8+ seasons. Absolutely the dumbest "cop show" ever conceived, worse even the the various iterations of CSI. Profilers, mind you, PROFILERS, running around chasing serial killers shooting up the countryside and then flying off into the sunset on their handy dandy Gulfstream G-whatever and waxing philosophical on why the killer did what he did and how they are superior in some ineffable way, Pure twaddle, imho.

    i can't believe it's ONLY 9. it feels like it's been unendingly longer than that.

    Suburgatory - Third Season Premiere @ 8:30 on ABC.

    *Yeah this show lost me in the second season and won't see a fourth but I've missed the Chatswin crew and I will give it another shot while it lasts.

    **I'm happy Awkward. is over because Tessa and Jenna sound so much alike in the narration I get the two confused sometimes.

    I love that Key & Peele once again covered it - the reality show need for personal exploitation:

    For a second I thought that chick trying to go all Sonha Tayeh was Julie Brown. Shows what I know.

  • mzblackwidow

    I love Garcia :)

  • Me, too. I love Penelope so much, Morgan would have to fight me for her.
