5 Shows After Dark: Everything's Shiny
“Glee” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. This is the specific Whitney Houston tribute episode. I mean, they already had Mercedes sing “I Will Always Love You” but that was just a coincidence that her character was singing that song the week after Houston’s death and it was sort of perfectly timed and lovely. So of course they have to go back and shit all over it.
“Cougar Town” on ABC at 8:30pm Et.
“LA Complex” on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This isn’t especially noteworthy from the commercials I’ve seen, except there’s a refuge from “Serenity” (referring to the ship not the movie) floating around. Kaylee, everyone’s favorite adorable yet awkward mechanic who is disarmingly honest about her sexual needs, appears to be involved with this. Or rather, Jewel Staite is, and I’m sure she’s playing a completely different character. Much the the chagrin of legions of nerds.
“New Girl” on Fox at 9:00pm ET.
“The Voice” on NBC at 9:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That’s a lie.)
