5 Shows After Dark
“The Amazing Race” on CBS at 8:00pm ET. 20th season premiere.
“The Simpsons” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. 500th episode.
“Downton Abbey” on PBS at 9:00pm ET.
“Cruise Ship Disaster: Inside the Concordia” on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. I guess Discovery just has a “Disaster Porn” team on standby at all times ready to be deployed to wherever there’s an earthquake, hurricane, building collapse, cruise ship run aground, etc. with cameras and people to interview survivors to have these specials thrown together so quickly. And if the don’t, they should because wouldn’t THAT be an awesome show? Just following around the team of people they’d have to put together to be ready to film anything anywhere on a moment’s notice? I’d watch that show.
“Eastbound and Down” on HBO at 10:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Kenny Powers is back on television! I think I remember that there’s a group of you who care about that.
