5 Shows After Dark: They'll Rename her Mary Sue Any Day Now
“Burn Notice” on USA at 9:00pm ET. Two hour sixth season finale. The show has been renewed for the seventh season, so I guess we’ll all get a satisfying conclusion to Michael Westen’s attempt to leave Miami. Except from promos I’m pretty sure he has left Miami once or twice over the season. So, you know, I’m sure there’s something else important to wrap up.
“Glee” on Fox at 9:00pm ET. I have to tell you, as someone who went to music school and had friends who went to conservatories, watching Rachel’s experience at Fake Drama School is hilarious. Just flat out hilarious. We got about two minutes of realistic “Oh, you were a big star in your glee club back in Ohio? That’s cute. You and all the other ‘big stars’ can get over there and prepare to be eviscerated now” development but now we’re back to Rachel being the shiny perfect unicorn that everyone wants to help even when she’s being a bitchy little diva. You EARN being a bitchy little diva, honey, you’re not born into it.
“Parks and Recreation” on NBC at 9:30pm ET.
“The League” on FX at 10:30pm ET.
“Dave’s Old Porn” on Showtime at 11:00pm ET. Second season premiere. I’m not sure how this previously escaped my notice, but it’s a series where Dave Attell and other comedians and/or porn stars watch old porn (70s and 80s vintage) and joke about it. The porn itself is censored for television. I suspect a few of you may be fans of that. Also, I had to google “Dave’s Old Porn” to find out what this was and I was basically peaking out from behind my fingers to see what the internet sent back to me. Really worrisome moment there.
