5 Shows After Dark: Awwww, They're Expecting!
“Masterchef” on Fox at 9:00pm ET.
“Not My Mama’s Meals” on Cooking at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere. You know, before the whole mess surrounding Paula Deen and how she ran her restaurant went down I’d actually been mildly impressed with this show and her attempts to gently transition her media empire to her son, by having him do a healthier cooking show. But now I guess it’ll be a race to see how fast they can distance this show from the original inspiration.
“The Bridge” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
“Broadchurch” on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Half the fun of this show is watching all the people who have already seen the whole thing do the spoiler-equivalent of holding their breath until they turn blue. The other half of the fun is… nothing. There is nothing fun about this show.
“The Soup” on E at 10:00pm ET. 500th episode and they’re doin’ it live! I’m sure there’s plenty of crazy guest stars lined up, although the tall drink of snarker that is Joel McHale is probably enough for most of you. Related: I saw a promo for this with Joe Manganiello and I’m always completely weirded out that he DOESN’T look like a giant man-beast next to Joel.
Genevieve Burgess just hopes that we can all forgive butter for it’s unfortunate association with that whole mess. Butter just wants to love us, from the inside out.
