Pajiba After Dark: Seriously? This is Riveting Television?

There’s nothing really good on TV tonight, just the occasional show that’s more entertaining than it has a right to be (looking at you, “White Collar” with your dashing suits and your Matt Bomer who seems to have finally gotten a handle on the crazy eyes. Also that girl that looks and soundslike Emma Stone and Emma Pillsbury from “Glee” went into the “If they Mated” machine. If you watch the show you know what I mean.) and a lot of reality stuff involving cupcakes. OK, maybe not a lot of it involves cupcakes but two different shows on two different networks qualifies as a lot of cupcake shows as far as I’m concerned. Maybe you could just throw a movie on. I’d suggest The Jungle Book because I’ve been singing “I Wanna Be Like You” to myself ALL DAY and I’m spreading that ear-worm as far as I can because that’s how you cure them. I’m the king of the swingers, oh, here’s your Tuesday night TV:

8:00pm: “America’s Got Talent” on NBC

“Cupcake Wars” on Food Network

“History Detectives” on PBS

“I Kid with Brad Garrett” on TLC. Series premiere. Didn’t realize there was a huge audience for a show starring the other guy from “Everybody Loves Raymond” but I don’t understand so much about television these days and really, this is just about the least of the problems.

“Masterchef” on Fox

“Pretty Little Liars” on ABC Family

“Wipeout” on ABC

9:00pm: “101 Ways to Leave a Game Show” on ABC

“19 Kids and Counting” on TLC. I can’t imagine having 18 siblings. Honestly, I’ve got two and these days when all of us are all in the same place it’s just a whole lot of people. Growing up with the equivalent of a soccer team as you family has to be a strange experience.

“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” on Travel

“Deadliest Catch” on Discovery

“Hardcore Pawn” on TruTV

“Memphis Beat” on TNT

“The Nine Lives of Chloe King” on ABC Family

“Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy” on History

“Staten Island Cakes” on WE

“The Voice” on NBC

“White Collar” on USA

10:00pm: “16 and Pregnant: Life after Labor” on MTV

“Chopped” on Food Network

“Combat Hospital” on ABC

“Covert Affairs” on USA

“The Cupcake Girls” on WE

“Deadliest Catch” on Discovery

“Gene Simmons Family Jewels” on A&E

“Hawthorne” on TNT

“How the States Got Their Shapes” on History

“The Little Couple” on TLC

“Million Dollar Decorators” on Bravo

“POV: My Perestroika by Robin Hessman” on PBS

“Storage Hunters” on TruTV

“Tosh.0” on Comedy Central. I can’t always watch this show, but the times I’ve managed it I have to say that Daniel Tosh 100% goes for it. I may not always like his humor but I can respect his dedication to the gag.

“Toya: A Family Affair” on BET

Late Night Listings

“The Late Show with David Letterman” on CBS featuring Tom Hanks and Sleepy Man Banjo Boys

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC featuring Jason Bateman, Dhani Jones, and Hannibal Buress

“The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on CBS featuring Beijing Comfort Inn and Neil Gaiman (Wait, really? Alright then.)

“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Comedy Central featuring Louis C.K

“The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central featuring Alexandra Pelosi

“Chelsea Lately” on E featuring Liv Tyler, Jo Koy, Loni Love, and Gary Valentine

“Conan” on TBS featuring Elijah Wood, Leslie Bibb, and Gillian Welch
