5 Shows After Dark: You'd Better Watch Out
“600 Pound Mom: Race Against Time” on TLC at 9:00pm ET. You know who’s racing against time? TLC with these “shocking” reality shows about obese individuals. Frankly, the way America is going with what we consider food, pretty soon the 600 pound lady won’t be worthy of her own TV show; she’ll just be Linda from down the street.
“The Hour” on BBCA at 9:00pm ET.
“Supernatural” on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Eighth season fall finale. Oh, good, it’s fall finale season so all the channels can get rid of those pesky shows people actually care about and follow to plug in some hideous made-for-TV Christmas movies or holiday specials. It makes sense for them to take a break over the holidays since people have obligations and are less likely to be sitting in front of the TV waiting to hear about the latest antics of their favorite “doctors who are terrible at their jobs” show but calling it a “fall finale” seems a bit grandiose. Also, weeks without new shows means less to distract me from the months long barrage of jewelry commercials that run from right after Thanksgiving to right around Valentine’s day and which all exist in a place where people do inexplicable things like propose on airplanes and not punch the shit out of anyone who says “He went to Jared.”
“Suburgatory” on ABC at 9:30pm ET. Second season fall finale.
“American Horror Story” on FX at 10:00pm ET. SANTA CLAUS EPISODE! Except, you know, not because it’s this show.
