5 Shows After Dark: More Ken Marino, Less Butt Monster
“The Bachelor” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. 17th season finale.
“Ring of Fire” on Reelz at 8:00pm ET. Reelz is one of those way in the upper reaches of the satellite numbers channels that I tend to go to for crappy late night movies. It seems they have produced a crappy mini-series about greedy oil executives steering the earth towards an extinction level event, which honestly just seems like a poor business decision. Like, how are you going to spend your absurd amounts of oil money if the whole damned planet blow up? But I digress. Starring Michael Vartan and Terry O’Quinn who really just should have put up a Kickstarter if they needed the money that badly.
“King’s Point” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a documentary about seniors living in the King’s Point condo community in Delray Beach, FL that’s ten years in the making. It’s a look at growing older, and the challenges these men and women face as they move into their twilight years. Mostly this just reminds me that I really miss living in Miami, even if it is where old people go to die.
“Burning Love” on E at 10:00pm ET.
“Catfishin’ Kings” on Animal Planet at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Apparently Animal Planet has not gotten the memo that the only Catfish we want on TV these days are the ones that pretend to be attractive people on the internet.
Genevieve Burgess misses Miami like the deserts miss the rain.
