Defiance on SyFy at 8:00pm ET. Two-hour second season finale.
The Quest on ABC at 8:00pm ET. This is that LARPing competitive reality series, and I only found out recently that there is no cash prize. These people are essentially playing for the privilege of staying in the Lord of the Rings set for as long as they can. I… kind of get that, actually.
Rush on USA at 9:00pm ET. I’m still not endorsing this, because the “brilliant doctor with a drug problem” was done to death by House and I refuse to get sucked into that whole thing again, but I do have to give them some credit for calling this episode “Because I Got High.” Been a while since I had cause to think of Afroman.
ABC Special: World’s Wildest Commercials on ABC at 10:00pm ET. A yearly event during which Americans express shock and dismay at the concept of countries that embrace nudity the way we embrace violence, or fail to understand the function of a “watershed hour.” Woooo! Emphasizing cultural differences for the purposes of mockery and spite is definitely the way to improve America’s image abroad!
Black Jesus on Adult Swim at 11:00pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess generally finds nipples less offensive than most American advertising. Any nipples.
