5 Shows After Dark: Those Eyebrows are Up to No Good, Clearly
“2012 Olympics” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Tonight we have swimming and diving finals, the men’s gymnastics all around competition, and a beach volleyball match with team USA though NBC’s website isn’t telling me if it’s mens, womens, or which specific mens or womens team is competing because their descriptions of their terrible coverage are even worse than the coverage itself.
“Dallas” on TNT at 9:00pm ET. There is no drama on this show that can overshadow Larry Hagman’s eyebrows. They should get their own billing.
“Royal Pains” on USA at 9:00pm ET.
“Futurama” on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET.
“Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman” on Science at 10:00pm ET. Tonight’s episode is “Will Eternity End?” and I swear, I know this show is very serious and sciencey but the titles all sound like discussions had by college sophomores experiencing some form of chemically altered consciousness. I expect eventually we’ll see “No, But Have You Ever Really LOOKED at (insert mundane object here)?”
