5 Shows After Dark: Happy 2013! Here's Some Scary Volcanoes.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone who was celebrating this past week had a wonderful time and that your 2013 is off to a great start. Onto tonight’s TV:
“The Hour” on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. Second season finale.
“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” on NBC at 9:00pm ET. 14th season winter premiere.
“Nova: Doomsday Volcanoes” on PBS at 9:00pm ET. 40th season premiere. Apparently there’s a volcano in Iceland larger that Eyjafjallajökull that’s moving and shaking. That’s the bad news. The good news is that this particular volcano is named “Katla” so at least trying to report on it won’t be a source of embarrassment for English speaking newscasters if shit really does go down.
“American Horror Story” on FX at 10:00pm ET. It’s really sort of refreshing to watch a show where 1. I have no clue how the season is going to turn out and 2. Frankly, it doesn’t really matter at this point. Maybe they’ll make Arden an alien! Maybe Sister Jude will take over for the Angel of Death! Maybe the monsters (remember them?) will swarm the asylum and eat everyone! It’ll all be amazing.
“Chicago Fire” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. I feel bad for Chicago. It seems like a nice city, but shows set there seem to have a really hard time sticking on the schedule. Family reunions with New York and LA must get really uncomfortable and passive aggressive after about the third glass of wine or so.
