5 Shows After Dark: Is She Even a Doctor Anymore or Just Professionally Adorable?
“Hart of Dixie” on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Second season premiere. Didn’t know this one was coming back. Good on you, show.
“Raising Hope” on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Third season premiere.
“The Mindy Project” on Fox at 9:30pm ET. I know a lot of people were disappointed in the premiere of this, but I thought it was well known that the job of the pilot episode isn’t to be GOOD but to introduce all the main characters and central plot lines in the most obvious and least subtle way possible so an executive can’t say “I don’t get it, isn’t she dating that British guy?”. I’m willing to give it a couple more weeks to really find its feet.
“Parenthood” on NBC at 10:00pm ET.
“Sons of Anarchy” on FX at 10:00pm ET. I expect there’s more than a few of you who aren’t going to be watching this anymore. Between the viewers who dropped the show after last season’s “Ha ha, just kidding!” season finale and the ones who will drop out of heartbreak after last week’s episode, I’m wondering if Kurt Sutter is engaging in some bizarre game of “Chicken” with his viewers.
Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.
