5 Shows After Dark: You Can Be Frustrated at Jaden Smith All Over Again!
“Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
“Renovation Raiders” on HGTV at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new show where renovations are carried out while the target couple is out to dinner. I’ll admit, it’s a different take on house-porn for HGTV but I guess you have to diversify to stay fresh.
“The Graham Norton Show” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Hey! Remember that “Graham Norton” show clip posted over last weekend with Will Smith an all the dancing? Yeah, that’s this episode. We finally get to see it in its full length form after we’ve all already seen the best part all over the internet! Man, BBCA is a genius to hold these episodes out of the American market for a week, right? Just builds the buzz!
“Hannibal” on NBC at 10:01pm ET. I wish they would move further away from the whole “monster of the week” thing. It’s the weakest part of every episode. I guess they’re staying away from longer plot-lines until the final word on renewal is in. Then again, I sort of hated that plot with Anna Chlumsky as a former FBI student poking around, as it took aspects of other characters’s stories and basically made sausage out of them. I do want to see Mads develop Hannibal more, though, and for the writing to settle down enough that Laurence Fishburne can get a better handle on Jack Crawford.
“Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell” on FX at 11:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess really needs “Hannibal” to stick around so it can become good enough to deserve Mads Mikkelsen.
