5 Shows After Dark: Points for the Effort, ABC Family. Let's See You Stick the Landing.
“The Secret Life of the American Teenager” on ABC Family at 8:00pm ET. Series finale. This provided some great clips for “The Soup” but other than that I had no knowledge of it. Farewell, show!
“The Fosters” at 9:00pm ET on ABC Family. Series premiere. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this is a show about a lesbian, bi-racial couple raising children together, biological and adopted. One of the women is a teacher, and the other is a police officer. I want to be excited about this, but it’s from Jennifer Lopez’s production company, so I feel like no one should get their hopes too high.
“Warehouse 13” on SyFy at 10:00pm ET.
“Mistresses” on ABC at 10:01pm ET. Series premiere.
“Revolution” on NBC at 10:01pm ET. First season finale. I had someone actually explain to me what the “explanation” was for all the power going out all over the world at the same time, regardless of how it was generated or stored, and I swear to god I got dumber listening to it. That information is now taking up space in my head that could be devoted to more worthwhile things, like which store in my area has the cheapest bananas. So, I’m no longer indifferent about this show, I’m actively frustrated that it’s still on the air spreading its dumbness around with abandon. But I’m frustrated with a lot of TV for that sin.
