5 Shows After Dark
“Community” on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
“Marathon Boy” on HBO at 8:00pm ET. I anticipate this will be heartbreaking since it’s a documentary about an orphaned Indian boy whose talent for long distance running was either indulged or exploited by a judo coach who began to hold the boy up as a hero for the poor. The child broke down during a world record 65 kilometer (just over 40 miles for the Americans) that he ran when he was FOUR YEARS OLD.
“The Vampire Diaries” on the CW at 8:00pm ET.
“Bones” on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. This was supposed to air last week until the World Series actually went seven games. As best I can tell from commercials the traditional side helping of humor to distract from the ghastly method of death the writers have come up with this week will be at the expense of Bones and her expanding waistline.
“Burn Notice” on USA at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season fall premiere.
