5 Shows After Dark: Really, It's Just Cruel
“2012 Olympic Summer Games” on NBC at 8:00pm ET. More individual events in men and women’s gymnastics and track and field, and a beach volleyball semifinal in which Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings play China’s Xue Chen and Zhang Xi.
“Deadliest Catch: Behind the Scenes” on Discovery at 9:00pm ET.
“Shipping Wars” on A&E at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. For all of you who were desperately waiting the return of this show. I’m sure there’s, what, like a whole dozen maybe? I’m amazed at the amount of niche television that’s happening thanks to all the extended channels on cable. I think we’ll soon have reality shows for every profession. And what a beautiful and glorious day that will be.
“Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins” on HBO at 10:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. Awww, HBO, that’s just mean. Don’t tease the football fans like that. They get all excited for training camp footage and you give them the Dolphins. Poor football fans.
“World’s Worst Tenants” on Spike TV at 10:00pm ET. “Hoarders” cross over potential?
Genevieve Burgess hates summer television just as much as it hates her.
