5 Shows After Dark: What Summer Tastes Like
“Mythbusters” on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. The Mythbusters are going “Deadliest Catch” themed tonight with a bunch of crab myths. Are there crab myths? I know they’ve had to reach a bit for things to test as they’ve gotten up into the later seasons, but usually I’m like “Oh, yeah, that makes sense” but I genuinely can’t think of anything related to sea-dwelling arthropods that requires Mythbuster expertise. Well, except the persistent myth that any crab other than blue crab is the most delicious, because that is straight up WRONG.
“Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy” on History at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Alright, who’s starting the petition to get the History channel to change their name to something less insulting to actual history?
“Supernatural” on The CW at 9:00pm ET.
“Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” on NBC at 9:01pm ET. It must be bittersweet to be a professional actor and get offered a featured role on this show, because you know the chances are very good you’re either 1. going to be playing someone horrible or 2. having to act out having something horrible done to you. But I guess if you’ve already disappointed your parents by pursuing an acting career, their esteem of you isn’t going to fall much further if you call them up and tell them you’ve got a part as a pedophile.
“The Big Brain Theory” on Discovery at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess prefers her blue crab in crabcake form, but is pretty handy with a mallet too.
