5 Shows After Dark: That Man Aged Like a Fine Wine
“Raising Hope” on Fox at 8:00pm Et.
“Doomsday Preppers” on National Geographic Channel at 9:00pm ET. This is basically a better organized and more convincingly justified version of “Hoarders.” I bet they even have the same laissez-faire attitude towards food expiration dates.
“Happy Endings” on ABC at 9:00pm ET. I love this so much, but I feel bad that it’s taking some thunder away from “Don’t Trust the B— in Apt. 23” which is a terrible title for a hilarious show. James Van Der Beek is busy earning back whatever goodwill he lost by playing Dawson Freakin’ Leary all those years. But I do like “Happy Endings” a bit more, so it’s the one I always mention. Shame they have to be on the same night as each other AND the same night as “The Mindy Project” and “The New Normal” so all of my sitcoms are sitting on top of each other.
“Mankind: The Story of All of Us” on History at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere.
“Sons of Anarchy” on FX at 10:00pm ET. Without going into further detail because of reasons, I’m really hoping we don’t have to come to the conclusion that there is a Warming Glow curse for “Sons of Anarchy” actors. Stay safe, boys! Some of you, anyway.
Genevieve Burgess is sort of hitting the mid-season slump.
