5 Shows After Dark: Bah, Humbug
The Sing-Off on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
Criminal Minds on CBS at 9:00pm ET. Ninth season fall finale. There are constantly reruns of this on some cable network or another and re-watching some of the earlier episodes has just driven home how much more orange they’ve been going with the foundation in recent seasons. Like, you could make a paint-chip of Hotch’s face from “pasty” to “tangerine” over the past nine seasons. I’m curious to see how far they’ll take it.
American Horror Story on FX at 10:00pm ET.
Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale on NBC at 10:00pm ET. This a Christmas special featuring the music from Ms.Clarkson’s Christmas CD, along with a bunch of other music and TV stars. It is basically a version of A Christmas Carol but without the biting social commentary and it’s being used to sell a Christmas CD so any moral message is going to ring a little hollow. I mean, I like Kelly Clarkson for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on, but there is only one version of A Christmas Carol that works for me, and it’s the one with muppets.
Key & Peele on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET. Third season finale. Worry not, fellow fans, they’ve already been renewed for a fourth season.
Genevieve Burgess has developed an irrational fear of bronzer thanks to TV makeup artists.
