I Used to Play With Animals for a Living. Now I Eat Stuff. You're So Jealous.

I’m having a really hard time coming up with a topic for today, I’ve started and stopped like three different ideas that either were dumb or I just lost interest in even as I was writing them. It’s not too much of a loss as all of them were a lead in for the following announcement: I will be taking next week off of Pajiba After Dark. My classes start next week and as some incredibly astute readers who know me on Facebook may have noticed, I am not back in North Cuba yet, so there a whole lot of packing, driving, unpacking, and organizing in my immediate future. And let me tell you, if there is ever a time of year that is best suited for moving from Maryland to Miami it is… really not late August at all. The weather in both locales is some version of meteorological swamp ass or torrential down pours. I apologize in advance for leaving you without a repository for discussions about television, but let’s be honest there’s really not much on worth watching about this time of year. I love saying shit like that because I know seven of you will pop up in the comments defending some show or another. Looking at tonight’s line up, I’m guessing “Burn Notice.” Or maybe “Royal Pains.” Anyway, here’s tonight’s TV and I’ll see you on the 29th:

8:00pm: “Big Brother” on CBS

“Extreme Cuisine with Jeff Corwin” on Food Network. Second season premiere. Wait, Jeff Corwin? The nature show guy that had like a stealth lisp or some weird speech pattern? I thought he played with animals? I’m so confused.

“NFL Preseason: New England at Atlanta” on Fox. Special presentation.

9:00pm: “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” on TLC

“Burn Notice” on USA

“Pitchmen” on Discovery. Second season premiere. I’m amazed they carried on with this after Billy Mays’s death. Course, it never seemed like that British dude like him much anyway, probably because he yelled all the time. At least, that’s why I didn’t like him.

“Project Runway” on Lifetime

“Rookie Blue” on ABC

“Smoking Gun Presents: World’s Dumbest Daredevils” on TruTV

10:00pm: “ABS New Special: Nightline Prime” on ABC. Series premiere.

“BBQ Pit Masters” on TLC

“Come Dine With Me” on BBCA

“Fact or Faked” on SyFy. First season summer finale.

“Futurama” on Comedy Central

“Jersey Shore” on MTV

“NICU” on Health

“Royal Pains” on USA

“The Squad: Prison Police” on A&E

“Stan Lee’s Superhumans” on History

“You’re Wearing That?!?” on WE. Series premiere. Apparently this is a show where mothers and daughters are encouraged to critique each other’s outfits. So, a much more confrontational version of “What Not To Wear” but probably with less take away styling tips involving belting and fitted jackets.

10:30pm: “On the Road with Austin and Santino” on Lifetime

“The Squad: Prison Police” on A&E

“You’re Wearing That?!?” on WE

Late Night Listings

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC featuring Sharon Osbourne, T.I, and Truth & Salvage Co.

“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Comedy Central featuring Jennifer Aniston. Really? Is she there to promote The Baster The Switch? Because Jason Bateman was there to do that just last week. Weird.

“The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central featuring Jon Krakauer
