5 Shows After Dark: Corsets, Hoarders, and Football. Something For All of You.
“Monday Night Football: Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens” on ESPN at 7:00pm ET. 43rd season premiere.
“The Crimson Petal and The White” on Encore at 8:00pm ET. This is a miniseries based on a book and the plot sounds like standard Victorian-setting tragedy porn. However, it stars Chris O’Dowd, Romola Garai, and Gillian Anderson has some sort of small part as well.
“Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. 10th season finale.
“Hoarders” on A&E at 9:00pm ET. Sixth season premiere. Misery night is full swing again!
“The New Normal” on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Which is weird, because everything I’ve read indicated that this would be premiering tomorrow but hey, whatever. I’m hopeful about this, because it seems like an interesting story to tell, and I’m hoping that “American Horror Story” is keeping Mr.Murphy’s tendency to take things to the completely crazy place busy over there. But we’ll see.
Genevieve Burgess continues to root for the Ravens, to the consternation of many.
