5 Shows After Dark
“Bent” on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new series on NBC starring Amanda Peet that I had literally not heard about until I saw it on the listing. Here’s the verbatim description from NBC; “‘Bent’ is a romantic comedy about a womanizing surfer dude contractor and his beautiful, no-nonsense, type-A client, who work together to remodel each other’s lives as they renovate her Venice, CA home.” Two episodes on tonight! I’m sure that’ll be a treat.
“Criminal Minds” on CBS at 9:00pm ET.
“Happy Endings” on ABC at 9:30pm ET.
“Duck Dynasty” on A&E at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a series about a family business making duck calls that turned into a multimillion dollar company. I’m getting a weird whiff of “Can you believe these jokers from Louisiana can run a successful business? Look at them!” from this. Since at least one of them has a business degree, it’s not particularly surprising and last I checked having a thick luxurious beard doesn’t actually drain IQ points.
“South Park” on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET.
