5 Shows After Dark: At Least They're Up-Front About the Crazy
“Save Me” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. NBC knows that what you’ve really been wondering the last 15 years is “How’s Anne Heche doing?” The answer is that she’s doing well enough to have a pilot on NBC that sounds like a seriously dumbed down version of “Joan of Arcadia.” So, not great, really.
“Does Someone Have To Go?” on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new show where bosses let their employees make the tough decisions about whether or not someone needs to be fired to help the business. Because if everyone is throwing stones, then no one’s really guilty, right?
“Showville” on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new reality series where a talent show is staged in a different small town every week and the other residents pick the winner, who gets $10,000 and a trophy. Sounds super exciting, really.
“Hannibal” on NBC at 10:01pm ET. They still haven’t announced whether or not this has been renewed as of writing (Wednesday night). They might want to hop on that, because I don’t even want to consider what kind of goodies might end up at the NBC office if the internet has to mount a protest about this. Remember when “Veronica Mars” fans mailed Mars Bars to the CW’s headquarters? Apparently whoever’s in charge of NBC doesn’t.
“Rookie Blue” on ABC at 10:01pm ET. Fourth season premiere.
Genevieve Burgess is wondering how many fava beans she can fit in a flat-rate box.
