Pajiba After Dark: Meh
I can’t tell you how happy I am that so many of you were able to identify that obscure “10 Things I Hate About You” quote. It comforts me to know that so many other people know that movie down to those small, incredibly important details of Patrick’s harassment of the lunch lady, Kat’s alleged testicular assault on a fellow student, and the incredibly lovely and talented Miss Perky who deals with teenagers the way I probably would if I were forced to be around them all day everyday. Same little asswipe shit for brains everywhere indeed. Anyway, there appears to be some TV on tonight so I guess I’ll go about describing that instead of talking about a 13 year old high school based adaptation of Shakespeare. Here’s your Tuesday night TV:
8:00pm: “The Biggest Loser” on NBC
“NCIS” on CBS
“No Ordinary Family” on ABC
9:00pm: “Best in Film: The Greatest Movies of Our Times” on ABC
“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” on Travel
“Breaking Down the Bars” on OWN
“Destination Truth” on SyFy
“Hardcore Pawn” on TruTV
“Million Dollar Listing” on Bravo
“NCIS: Los Angeles” on CBS
10:00pm: “Prince William & Prince Harry: Into the Future” on BBCA. I do not understand the American obsession with British royalty. We fought an incredibly difficult and bloody war in which we had to ally ourselves with the damn French of all people to make sure that we were no longer under the rule of the British royalty. Why turn around and spend time and energy checking on what they’re up to now? The young princes seem like decent folks when they’re not wearing ill advised Nazi costumes, but I don’t really care about them beyond that. I’m actually not even planning on watching the wedding but that has more to do with the time difference meaning that it comes on at goddamned early o’ clock in the morning and I like sleeping more than I like pageantry.
“Big Brian: The Fortune Seller” on TruTV. Series premiere.
“The Game” on BET
“The Good Wife” on CBS
“Lights Out” on FX
“Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen” on SyFy. Series premiere. This seems appropriate, Marcel never struck me as the Food Network type.
“One Born Every Minute” on Lifetime
“Our America with Lisa Ling” on OWN. First season finale.
“The Real Housewives of Miami” on Bravo
“Teen Mom” on MTV
“Top Shot” on History
“What Not to Wear’ on TLC
Late Night Listings
“The Late Show with David Letterman” on CBS featuring Katie Couric and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
“The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on NBC featuring Julie Scardina, Rebecca Black, and Duran Duran. I have thus far managed to avoid that Rebecca Black song that has apparently taken the internet by storm. I’ve gotten the gist of it from all the tweets, status updates, comments, and other secondary sources, and have no interest in viewing it for myself.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC featuring Rainn Wilson, Abbie Cornish, and the Gaslight Anthem
“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on NBC featuring Brian Williams, Dwight Howard, and Richard Ashcroft
“Last Call with Carson Daly” on NBC featuring Bill Hader, Stuart Gordon, and the Morning Benders
“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Comedy Central featuring T.J English
“The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central featuring Ayman Mohyeldin
“Chelsea Lately” on E featuring Vera Wang, Chris Hardwick, Jo Koy, and Whitney Cummings
“Conan” on TBS featuring Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, and Teddy Thompson
