5 Shows After Dark
“House” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. 8th season winter finale.
“Hoarders” on A&E at 9:00pm ET. It’s always a roll of the dice on whether any given episode of this show will be more tragic or infuriating. The one thing that’s never in question is “will it make me dry heave?” Yes. Always. Somehow.
“In Performance at the White House: Red, White, and Blues” on PBS at 9:00pm ET.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” on Logo at 9:00pm ET.
“The Fashion Police” on E at 10:00pm ET. This is, obviously, the 2012 Academy Awards edition and I finally figured out last night why I hate the red carpet coverage so much; there aren’t enough of the dresses. I realize that sounds stupid, but there were more than a couple of times when I was actually attempting to look around the person being interviewed by the breathless host in order to get a better look at some interesting or beautiful dress worn by someone who was completely below the notice of any of the outlets covering the show. So yeah, I basically want someone with a camera to just track down pretty dresses no matter who is wearing them and give us who it’s by and make the person wearing the dress do a nice slow 360 so I can get a good look at it and then move on. It’s not like they don’t chat enough during the damn Oscars, after all.
