5 Shows After Dark
“Community” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Third season spring premiere. Yaaaaayyyyyy! Although, I have to ask a question of you super fans; the six seasons and a movie guerilla campaign… how do you see them spending six seasons in Community College? I’m genuinely curious as to how this is supposed to play out, because shows that have completely abandoned their original central premise are fascinating to me. Does no one ever graduate or move on? That’s kind of grim.
“Missing” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. As best I can figure from the previews this is like the movie Taken but if someone replaced Liam Neeson with Ashley Judd and did a search and replace for “my daughter” with “my son.” But Judd’s pretty good with righteous yet unhinged fury so lets see how long she can keep it up!
“The Vampire Diaries” on The CW at 8:00pm ET.
“Behind the Music” on VH1 at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. Only five seasons? Something about that seems wrong. Anyway, featuring Pitbull. Dalé!
“Archer” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
