5 Shows After Dark: Oh, Mark Antony, Maybe This Series Will Make It
“Extreme Smuggling” on Discovery at 8:00pm ET. No word of a lie, I read this title as “Extreme Snuggling” the first go around and was trying to figure out what that show would be about. Frankly, I like my visions of baby pools full of puppies or blankets made of kittens much better than whatever this show is probably about.
“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS at 8:00pm ET.
“The Following” on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new show about serial killers, because we clearly didn’t have enough already. I swear, if these television shows were at all indicative of real life, the leading cause of death for 20-27 year old women would be getting tied up in a basement before having a drill put through their skull or whatever the writers are up to these days. Anyway, main serial killer starts an army of copycat serial killers through the internet (*gasp* but I’m using the internet RIGHT NOW!! Am I going to become a serial killer? Yes. Absolutely.) and then escapes prison. Also, there’s a love triangle between the serial killer, the FBI Agent hunting him, and that blonde lady y’all hate on “Justified” because of course there is. Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Natalie Zea, Shawn Ashmore, and Maggie Grace as well as a rotating collection of crazies and victims.
“Hawaii Five-0” on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Didn’t we just do this last night? Yes.
“Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs.” on TLC at 10:00pm ET. You guys, Pete Rose has his own reality series. Just thought you should know.
Genevieve Burgess is seriously considering hibernating til March. Make that April.
