Pajiba After Dark: Also, Total Waste of Gina Torres
I’ve spent most of my day in the presence of 10-13 year olds, outside, so my wit is a bit strained at this point since I can’t ask the children “Are you shitting me with this? Seriously?” after I’ve told them to stop hitting each other nine times in a row and see one of them leaning over to hit another one. I remember once telling my younger sister that should couldn’t just move into my apartment with me and start college early because 1. she hadn’t finished high school yet and 2. high school is where we keep teenagers until they turn back into humans. I should probably extend that to say that middle school is where we keep changelings until they better figure out how to act like teenagers. Here’s your Thursday night TV:
8:00pm: “So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox
“Wipeout” on ABC
9:00pm: “Big Brother” on CBS
“Burn Notice” on USA
“Expedition Impossible” on ABC. Bit of a defeatist title, isn’t it? If it’s impossible, then why bother? I think this is just another place where society has decided that “impossible” and “difficult and/or unlikely” are somehow synonyms and I’m being the stubborn stick in the mud who will ALWAYS point out otherwise.
“Swamp People” on History
“Sweet Home Alabama” on CMT
10:00pm: “Extreme Chef” on Food Network
“Futurama” on Comedy Central
“Love Bites” on NBC. First season finale.
“NY Ink” on TLC. First season finale.
“The Real Houswives of New York City” on Bravo. Fourth season finale.
“Rookie Blue” on ABC
“Suits” on USA. I love when these lawyer shows try to have a twist like “Oh! He never went to law school!” or “Oh, this lawyer is a dead model who came back into an overweight lawyer’s body!” except it doesn’t work because they’re still goddamn lawyer shows and all lawyer shows are basically the same, it’s just a question of whether they’re dramatic lawyer shows or kind of silly lawyer shows that still have dramatic moments because crime and punishment is serious business.
“Texas Women” on CMT
“True Life” on MTV
“Wilfred” on FX
10:30pm: “Louie” on FX
