5 Shows After Dark: The Pinnacle of Entertainment
“Boston’s Finest” on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Can I say that I have never understood how reality style cop shows work? And this is going back to the days of “COPS” which I watched as a small, impressionable child and ended up asking my dad if you had to take your shirt off to be arrested. But I digress. Knowing that you have been chased all over hell and back wearing only a pair of briefs that have seen better days, or knowing that the police kicked in the door to your meth house featuring all manner of unmentionable filth, WHY WOULD YOU SIGN THE RELEASE FORMS?!? Those people aren’t even paid for the privilege of having their dirty laundry aired on national television. But I guess if you’re in the situation where the cops with the cameras behind them are hunting you through your neighbor’s bushes or breaking down your door,
you’ve already proved that you don’t make excellent decisions.
“Restaurant: Impossible” on Food Network at 9:00pm ET. My sister watches this pretty regularly. I pointed out to her once that every single job they do, somehow the build gets “behind schedule” every single show without fail. And then there’s that tense “WILL THEY GET IT DONE?!?” moment every time. Now it’s all she notices. I’m a wonderful sister.
“The Americans” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
“Duck Dynasty” on A&E at 10:00pm ET. Apparently this is wildly popular, so I guess I should start mentioning it.
“Psych” on USA at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess spends a lot of her life desperately trying to understand how other people think.
