5 Shows After Dark: Spoiler Alert: Nuclear Level Sobbing Ahead
“Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
“Eureka” on SyFy at 9:00pm ET.
“One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss, and Betrayal” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a three part film chronicling the US’s relationship with dogs, in a series of stories. I think all of this will be hard to watch as the first part, “Fear”, deals with a dog that bites and its owner’s reluctance to put the dog down even after the dog bites the ear off a toddler. “Loss” is about people morning the loss of their pets, and one couple trying to clone their dog to replace him. The third part, “Betrayal”, deals with overpopulation and shelters and includes three minutes of graphic footage of dogs and puppies being euthanized. Basically, you need an extremely strong stomach to sit through all of this. And a large box of tissues. And if you have a dog handy you should warn them that they will be seized by their sobbing human in a bear hug as their human apologizes to them over and over for things that don’t directly related to either of them.
“The Glass House” on ABC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a reality series where people can tell the contestants what to do online and make the house do things. It seems to be a show designed specifically for people who didn’t work out those urges with “The Sims.”
“Kurt Sutter’s Outlaw Empires” on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. For the final installment in the first season, the will be following the Aryan Brotherhood.
Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That’s a lie.)
