5 Shows After Dark
“America’s Next Top Model” on The CW at 9:00pm ET. 18th season premiere. This is another all-stars season, only this time they’re facing off against some British “Top Model” all-stars so you get all the skinny bitchiness you’ve come to expect with the bonus of accents and British swears. Also there is a 1000% chance that Tyra will attempt a British accent at least once an episode.
“Happy Endings” on ABC at 9:30pm ET.
“Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. 13th season winter finale. Last weekend I was clicking through channels in the middle of the day and came across a “Law and Order: SVU” marathon on USA and was struck again by the fact that I live in a nation that will throw a mild shit fit over a half second of a woman giving the finger during the Super Bowl but a show centered around sexual assault and murder can air for hours in the middle of the day on a weekend and that’s nothing to be concerned about. But this isn’t news to any of you, just a continuation in the saga of America: Country of Contradictions.
“Psych” on USA at 10:00pm ET. Sixth season winter premiere.
“Top Chef” on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. Ninth season finale.
