Reminder: New Animation Domination, Dexter, and Metalocalypse tonight

Tonight is what may be this year's finest night in television programming in my opinion.  Dexter, Metalocalypse, The Simpsons, The Cleveland Show, and Family Guy are having their season premiers.  We can all go on about how The Simpsons and Family Guy are not as good as they were many years ago, but they are still worth a watch.  The Cleveland is also another good show and not bad for a spin-off.  And don't forget that American Dad premiers next week.  So much animation goodness on Fox.

Now that I got the Fox cartoons out of the way, let's talk about Dexter.  Dexter is entering it's fifth season and features the conflicted serial killer being a single dad, due to the events of last season.  I know Dexter may have been the only person who could've stopped the Trinity Killer, but he got married and had kids, he should've stopped his killing there.  The paradox of that would be that if he did that, then there would be  no point in the show, but the fact that he did not stop killing kind of makes him an asshole.  That's just my only discrepancy, I really love this show and I look forward to seeing what comes next for Dexter.\

Up next is the most brutal show about the world's biggest Death Metal band, Metalocalypse.  It's not a season premier, it's a mid-season premier.  All I expect is the same dark humor and kick-ass metal music that makes this cartoon on Adult Swim so cool.  I'm also expecting a lot of "hamburger time" on tonight's episode.  DIE FOR DETHKLOK.
