5 Shows After Dark
“The Voice” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. More auditions! Because everyone loves those. Seriously, people do and as someone who has been through and watched them in real life I’m bewildered by this.
“Hoarders” on A&E at 9:00pm ET.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” on Logo at 9:00pm ET.
“Smash” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. If you watched the Super Bowl last night, you saw a lot of commercials for this. I described it (on twitter) by saying “I feel like NBC is rubbing ‘Smash’ in my face like I’m a puppy who pissed on the carpet.” I’d actually been kind of interested in the show, but my inner contrarian is trying to convince me otherwise now that I feel like it’s being forced on me. Which is insane, I know, a television network can’t actually force me to do anything. Not yet, anyway.
“Underground Railroad: The William Still Story” on PBS at 10:00pm ET.
