5 Shows After Dark: Yeah, Pick on the Guys with Nuclear Missiles. Great Plan.
“Last Resort” on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. New series about a US Submarine that is attacked by our own Navy and goes rogue, setting up shop on a tropical island and threatening people with missiles while trying to clear their name. I am mildly curious about how 1. they’ll be able to find the materials to clear their name while on a (fictional) island in the middle of the ocean with no access to records or witnesses and 2. they have a finite number of missiles, right? Just saying. Anyway, starring Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman, Dichen Lachman and a bunch of other people that I don’t believe hold any particular significance to the Pajiba readership.
“Thursday Night Football: Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens” on NFL Network at 8:00pm ET. And the real refs are back! So there will be slightly less blatantly incompetent officiating to complain about.
“Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season premiere. I’ve already read that the first episode jumps forwards three months so if you were interested in seeing how the “stranded in the woods after a plane crash” cliff hanger from last season played out, don’t waste your time. And yes, I realize there’s like no one else watching this show anymore.
“Louie” on FX at 10:00pm ET. Third season finale.
“Elementary” on CBS at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Yet another procedural for CBS! This time, a rip off of the much beloved “Sherlock.”
Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.
