5 Shows After Dark
“Glee” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Ricky Martin is guest starring tonight, because the show wasn’t gay enough already. No word yet or whether “Livin’ La Vida Loca” will make an appearance. Personally, my preferred Martin single is “Cup of Life” but I suspect that I’m in the minority on that, at least in terms of the American television viewing population.
“NCIS” on CBS at 8:00pm ET. 200th episode. Woo! Maybe they’ll let Mark Harmon cut loose in this episode! And by cut loose, I mean smile for real.
“Ringer” on The CW at 9:00pm ET.
“The River” on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour series premiere. From the commercials boasting the show’s connection with Paranormal Activity it appears to be some kind of haunted house on a boat. With lots of shaky “hand held” camera work. On a boat. I’m emphasizing that point, because I’m fairly sensitive to bouncy things like being on a boat or watching hand held camera footage and watching hand held camera footage that was shot on a boat sounds like my personal idea of nausea hell. I really do look forward to the day this trend dies and I can watch movies and TV shows without checking my stock of dramamine first.
“Justified” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
