5 Shows After Dark
“House” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Every time I see this show is still on, I’m a little amazed. After seven seasons it’s pretty clear that no matter what happens to House otherwise, the show will follow a clear outline; mysterious illness, misdiagnosis, near death incident, House being an ass, sudden burst of inspiration, and then flip a coin as to whether the problem is treatable or not. The Greek chorus of side characters has changed a bit, but in the grand scheme of things they’re just there to point out how House is a rule breaking genius so it doesn’t matter too much.
“Hoarders” on A&E at 9:00pm ET.
“Inside the NSA: America’s Cyber Secrets” on National Geographic Channel at 9:00pm ET. Because I’ve lived in Maryland for most of my life I’ve always been less inclined to buy into various NSA centered conspiracy theories because it’s not a shadowy organization so much as that place where half the dads in the neighborhood work.
“Rupaul’s Drag Race” on Logo at 9:00pm. 90 minute fourth season premiere. Break out the sequins and platforms!
“Rupaul’s Drag Race: Untucked” on Logo at 10:30pm ET. Third season premiere.
