5 Shows After Dark
“Quadruple the Fun: The Carles Sisters” on Health at 8:00pm ET. Luckily this does not appear to be a pilot of any kind but just a stand alone special. I’ve heard that those specials on the families with multiples are bad because they encourage people to try and have multiples via fertility treatments, but they’re kind of terrifying. I don’t understand how anyone can watch them and go “Wow, it looks like it’s awesome to have quintuplets and doesn’t reduce your life to an endless stream of diapers, bottles, and screaming AT ALL!” But I also feel the same way about “16 and Pregnant” and there’s still people claiming that girls want to get pregnant because of a show that is completely dedicated to showing how difficult it is to be a pregnant teenager so I guess I just don’t understand people. Or someone’s lying.
“Cougar Town” on ABC at 8:30pm ET.
“Fashion Star” on NBC at 9:30pm ET. 90 minute series premiere. This is the new fashion competition show where the winning look from each episode will be available in stores the next day. Kind of a brilliant move in the world of impulse spending. Jessica Simpson is on the show as a fashion mentor, which isn’t super ridiculous because her clothing and shoe lines actually do pretty well. It just sounds bad when you say it. Also, that’s apparently Nicole Ritchie in that picture though you’d never guess it from looking at her.
“Justified” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
“Key and Peele” on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET.
