5 Shows After Dark: Mental Illness is so Wacky and Useful in TV Land!
“Bachelor Pad” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Third season premiere. In order to take us a little further down the reality competition rabbit hole, this season not only includes former “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants as always, but also a handful of “super-fans” who haven’t been on the related series before. I’m sure that’s exciting to someone.
“American Ninja Warrior” on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Two hour fourth season finale.
“Top Gear” on BBCA at 9:00pm ET.
“Vito” on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This is a documentary about the gay right’s activist, Vito Russo, who was active in the community from the 70s up until his death in 1990. He created the original presentation “The Celluloid Closet” about representations of gays and lesbians in movies that would go on to become a book written by Vito which was later adapted into the 1995 documentary of the same name.
“Perception” on TNT at 10:00pm ET. For those of you who enjoy spending an hour going “That’s not how schizophrenia works” every Monday.
