Pajiba After Dark: From the Ground Up

Tonight the Discovery Channel premieres the series “Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero” which is all well and good and probably something a lot of you would like to watch. The thing is, though, instead of just making one super-sized premiere episode they’ve split the whole thing up into three separate episodes that are going to be aired back to back to back in order to monopolize your entire evening. Probably works out better for scheduling the day long marathons Discovery is so fond of running later on. In other news, I’m spending most of next week camping and won’t have access to the internet or even indoor plumbing so I’d like to say thank you to those of you who have stuck it out with me this summer and I will see all of you after Labor Day. Here’s your Thursday night TV:

8:00pm: “CMT Made” on CMT. So… this is like “Made” that was on MTV but with a CMT twist? Is everyone required to wear cowboy boots? Do grits feature prominently? Does the montage music all heavily feature a pedal steel guitar? Seriously, why?

“Secret Access: Most Credible UFO” on History

“Monday Night Football: Preseason: Washington at Baltimore” on ESPN. Again with the “Monday Night Football” on a night that’s not Monday. Bastards. Anyway, good thing this is being held in Baltimore since FedEx field is where happiness and sanity go to die. And then you have to watch the Skins play.

“Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero” on Discovery. Series premiere.

“Wipeout” on ABC

9:00pm: “Big Brother” on CBS

“Burn Notice” on USA

“Expedition Impossible” on ABC. First season finale.

“The First 48” on A&E

12:00am: “Children’s Hospital” on Adult Swim. The episode is called “Party Down” and I can’t find a better description of it, so I can’t promise you “Party Down” fans that this is something you want to watch but it can’t hurt, right?
