5 Shows After Dark: The Final Cumberbatchering. OR IS IT?!?
“Community” on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
“Zero Hour” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. I haven’t looked yet, you guys, is it bad? I feel like it’s really bad. Like, the kind of bad where you’re embarrassed for everyone on screen while you’re watching and digging around in your pockets for change to offer them so they can stop being on this awful show.
“Parade’s End” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Mini-series finale. So I can stop assaulting (or pandering to) all of you with Benedict Cumberbatch pictures. Yesterday several of you pointed out that Rebecca Hall is in this and also doing a fantastic job, so I made sure to throw her in today. Also, whoever mentioned yesterday’s picture resembled a “melting Matthew Crawley” may be my brain twin, because I thought something very similar when I first saw it. Then I thought how much better “Downton Abbey” would have been if they’d hired an actor with a range beyond “pleasant surprise” and “petulant frustration” for the role of Matthew Crawley. But hey, bygones are bygones.
“Archer” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
“Nathan For You” on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET. Series premiere. I swear, there’s new shows headed up by comedians premiering every damn week right now and I can’t keep track of which are scripted, which are talk show format, and which are sketch comedy. I think this one is sketches. I’m wary, because sometimes I get engrossed in something on my computer as “The Colbert Report” is ending and then looking back at the TV at just the wrong moment as “Tosh.0” comes on and I end up watching a YouTube video of someone permanently damaging themselves or spraying some sort of body fluid on unsuspecting bystanders. I’m not a fan, is what I’m saying, and I am extremely dubious of Comedy Central’s judgement now.
Genevieve Burgess would very much like it if you bought her book. Please?
