5 Shows After Dark
“The Big Bang Theory” on CBS at 8:00pm ET. I’ve never seen this show, but out of the people I know who have seen it I understand that opinions are pretty evenly split between it being an awesome show about nerds versus a show about how people who aren’t real nerds think nerds act. I guess which side you’re on depends on the nerds you know.
“Wipeout” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season winter finale.
“Parks and Recreation” on NBC at 8:30pm ET.
“Lifeguard!” on the Weather Channel at 9:00pm ET. The Weather Channel’s website describes this as a docudrama about lifeguards in Southern California. This is tangentially tied to the general theme of “weather” because someone on the weather channel points out that weather affects when people go to the beach which affects the jobs of the lifeguards. Whatever. It doesn’t involve Jim Cantore standing down the forces of nature in any way so I’m not interested.
“Archer” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
