5 Shows After Dark: The Genre Leader in Adorable Old Lady Smiles
“Antiques Roadshow” on PBS at 8:00pm ET. It’s nice to see that even as flashier auction house shows and storage unit shows are gaining popularity, that the classic “take shit from your attic and see if it’s worth something” series still gets a good audience.
“Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox at 8:00pm ET.
“Eureka” on SyFy at 9:00pm ET. Man, this is just the little show about a town plagued by science fiction that could, isn’t it. Go them.
“Top Gear” on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. The guest is Boris Johnson, the mayor of London.
“Four Houses” on TLC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a competition series where homeowners critique each others’ homes for a $10,000 prize and a feature in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I’m wondering who the market for this show is, given that a large number of that coveted 18-35 demographic don’t have the financial profile or the job security to consider buying a house at this point in time, never mind decorating one to the point where Better Homes and Gardens would be willing to photograph it. But hey, lets look at all the shiny pretty house porn anyway.
Genevieve Burgess does not appreciate your sass. (That’s a lie.)
