I get the impression from some of the comments I read last night that a few people are unclear on how Pajiba After Dark works, so I’ll explain; All the shows I list are new shows. I don’t list re-runs (otherwise this would be FOREVER long, which I know, because half of what I watch in the evening is re-runs) and I try to list shows which would be of interest to Pajibans or otherwise noteworthy. For example, I do frequently list shows that I hate simply to remind myself that they exist and all is not right in the world. If I’m not listing something that’s 1. New and 2. Interesting, pipe up in the comments and let people know about it. I really appreciated Drake’s tip last night about the Pixar shorts on ABC Family and I’m sure a lot of you out there did as well. Also, I have been known to adjust what I put here based on commenter input, since I do read all the comments on these articles. So, with that in mind, here’s what you can immerse yourself in this Thursday night:
8:00 p.m.: “Bones” on FOX.
“Community” on NBC.
“Flash Forward” on ABC.
“New York Jets at Buffalo Bills (in Toronto)” on the NFL Network.
“Science of the Movies: Puppet Meisters - The Magic Behind Team America: World Police” on Science.
“Survivor” on CBS.
8:30 p.m.: “Parks and Recreation” on NBC.
9:00 p.m.: “Fringe” on FOX.
“The Jeff Dunham Show” on Comedy.
“The Office” on NBC.
“Private Practice” on ABC, which is airing back-to-back episodes at “a special time” so I guess there’s no “Grey’s Anatomy” this week. I usually watch “Grey’s” on Saturday morning through the Hulu while battling a hangover, so it’s not a huge loss for me.
9:30 p.m.: “30 Rock” on NBC.
10:00 p.m.: “Ace of Cakes” on Food Network. 8th Season premiere. I watch this show occasionally mostly to show support to Baltimore-based businesses, and a lot of the cakes are pretty nifty too. It’s just that once you see them make one cake, you’ve kind of seen it all, you know?
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” on FX.
“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC.
“Jersey Shore” on MTV. I know some of you have been waiting for it, so here it is. Tonight’s the premiere episode. Enjoy every last tacky, guido-filled minute of it.
