5 Shows After Dark: Dead in the Water
“18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards” on The CW at 8:00pm ET.
“30 Rock” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Seventh season winter premiere.
“Last Resort” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. First season winter premiere. It’s already been announced this hasn’t been picked up so I guess it’s more like “No Resort” am I right? High five! Ok, that was mean. This is episode eleven, which means you get two more before this show is gone forever and you have to find a new way to fill that Andre Braugher shaped hole in your life.
“Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season winter premiere. Just when I start thinking “Hey, they’ve let several of their characters act basically like real people, albeit with a penchant for monologuing in cutesy speech patterns” they pull the rug out from under me again. And I’ll probably keep watching, because screw it, I like that there’s a show on the air that let a woman with a past like Meredith’s (one night stands, boozing, sleeping her way through Europe, depression, suicidal ideation) come out on the other side and have a family and a successful career. Also, I still love Christina Yang. Like all the other victims of this particular sort of Stockholm Syndrome.
“The Office” on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season winter premiere. To quote the show itself “So… that’s still going on, huh?”
Genevieve Burgess will be writing the date wrong for the next two months.
