5 Shows After Dark: Guess What Writer Clive Owen is Playing. I Bet You're Wrong.
“Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” on Travel at 9:00pm ET. This week Mr.Bourdain is exploring Baja.
“Gene Simmons Family Jewels” on A&E at 9:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere.
“Hatfields & McCoy’s” on History at 9:00pm ET. Part 1 of 3.
“Hemingway & Gellhorn” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Original Telefilm. A two and a half hour movie chronicling the relationship between Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn, his third wife. The two Americans will be played by a Brit (Clive Owen) and an Aussie (Nicole Kidman). I’m really having a hard time envisioning slim, cool, collected Clive Owen as the mercurial, florid, and bear-like Hemingway and don’t know enough about Gellhorn to comment on her casting aside from the obvious accent issues. At the very least it will be extremely pretty to look at.
“Kurt Sutter’s Outlaw Empire” on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. This week’s episode focuses on the South Boston Irish mob, which should be terrifying. Not least because of what they do with their vowels in that part of the world.
Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That’s a lie.)
