5 Shows After Dark: TV Gets A Little Less Ruggedly Handsome
“Duets” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new singing competition series where successful artists travel around looking for people talented enough to sing duets with them. Featuring Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles (singer for Sugarland if that name means nothing to you), and Robin Thicke.
“So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Ninth season premiere.
“On the Fly” on TLC at 9:00pm ET. This is a reality series centered around Southwest Airlines employees because god knows that everyone wants to do in their free time is relieve the excitement of watching people argue about airplane seating.
“Awake” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. First season finale, which is also the series finale because the show was cancelled. Sorry, Jason Issacs fans.
“Men At Work” on TBS at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a series about a guy who got dumped and his friends all rallying around him to get him back into dating. I find it interesting that in popular media when a guy is dumped his friends are always all about him getting back out there and dating again, whereas women who are dumped are told to take some time to themselves and start taking zumba classes or knitting or something about being strong alone. I’m sure there’s something culturally significant there, but I’m not the one to look for it because both scenarios tend to be annoying and stupid.
