5 Shows After Dark: No Other Man on TV Wears a Three Piece Suit that Carelessly
“The Amazing Race” on CBS at 8:00pm ET. Two hour 22nd season finale. Anyone know if the contestants or crew on this show end up subjected to the kind of petty street crime that most tourists deal with in some of the cities they go to? I find it sort of impossible that a bunch of American television crews running through the streets would somehow not attract the attention of every pick-pocket in the city.
“Game of Thrones” on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
“Mad Men” at 10:00pm ET.
“The Mentalist” on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season finale. I always tune into this once or twice a season and I have to say that pregnancy really worked well for Grace. And apparently Red John is still a thing, so I guess we’ve got another finale episode where Simon Baker will spend a lot of time looking emotionally strained. Which is a shame, because it’s really not his best look.
“Veep” on HBO at 10:00pm ET. I’ve always thought this is kind of an odd pick for the post “Game of Thrones” slot. Then again if you followed that series up with yet another dark and complex series you might have people stop watching both just due to an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and futility.
