5 Shows After Dark: It's Always So Hard To Say Goodbye
“Parks and Recreation” on NBC at 8:30pm ET.
“Archer” on FX at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season final. NOOOOOOOO! God, this show has such short seasons and it always hurts when they’re over. I guess I’d rather short and sweet instead of them wearing out their welcome by over-extending plot lines but that’s not going to stop me from pouting about it for a bit.
“The Graham Norton Show” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. 13th season premiere, though in the best tradition of British things Americans want to watch, we’ll be getting all the episodes about a week after they originally air. This (last) week’s episode features Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Gerard Butler, and Paramore.
“Hannibal” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. This was better than I thought it’d be. Mostly because they’re taking the story cues from Red Dragon rather than Hannibal despite the name of the series. I think they need to tighten up the supporting characters a bit, right now several of them are skirting very close to being useless people cluttering up the scenery. Mads Mikkelson is stunning, as I’m pretty sure everyone knew he would be.
“Legit” on FX at 10:30pm ET. First season finale.
Genevieve Burgess will be drinking a toast or six in honor of the heroic work of Sterling Archer’s liver tonight.
