5 Shows After Dark: Who's Ready for a Solid Month of This Guy? ME!
“2012 U.S Olympic Team Trials: Swimming Finals” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. EEEEEEEEEEE! YOU GUYS THE OLYMPICS ARE COMING! I’M SO EXCITED! I really am, I’m the biggest Olympics dork ever for a couple of reasons. 1. I like sports, but not how long sports seasons are because I was born in the late 80s and therefore automatically have ADD so the Olympics are about the perfect length for me to overindulge on dozens of sports being played at their highest level and then get on with my life. 2. I really and truly am a sucker for instances of people from across the world coming together for peaceable reasons. Those “Where the Hell is Matt?” videos with the dancing get me too. Yes, I know that’s not the whole story. It’s still lovely. Anyway, take this as your warning that once the Olympics start I’m going to be fangirling all over the place.
“Hells Kitchen” on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
“Me @ The Zoo” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a documentary about Chris Crocker who briefly rocketed to internet notoriety with his “Leave Britney Alone” video several years ago. I didn’t realize anyone had wondered what he’d been up to or his life story, but if you are this should satisfy your curiosity.
“Hollywood Exes” on VH1 at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. Shockingly, for a reality series on VH1 claiming to feature famous-ish people, I recognize none of the names of the cast members. Quelle surprise.
“American Ninja Warrior” on NBC at 10:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That’s a lie.)
