5 Shows After Dark
“The Sing-Off” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Good news! Tonight’s show will lead off with a performance of “Wake Up” by Arcade Fire! Bad News: The rest of the night is dedicated to ‘classic rock’ and ‘new country’ though two of the songs in the ‘classic rock’ section are from the 80s I’m thinking we’ve entered a world where any music that pre-dates “Nevermind” is considered classic rock which gives me a headache. Twisted Sister is not classic rock, y’all.
“Top Gear” on BBCA at 8:00pm ET. It says that this is the season premiere but it also says that it’s a “best of Top Gear” show so I think the “Top Gear” people are trying to cheat you out of a real season premiere. I’m sorry to have to tell you that since I know some of you are “Top Gear” fans, but really it’s best to know the truth about your relationship, right?
“Monday Night Football: Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles” on ESPN at 8:30pm ET.
“Bored to Death” on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
“Hoarders” on A&E at 9:00pm ET.
