If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/21/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, CBS’s Celebrity Big Brother returns for a second season, with 12 new celebrities entering the Big Brother house to compete in a compressed version of the hit reality competition. I really enjoyed the first celebrity season last year, as things move along at a much faster pace than the regular summer show, which is stretched over 3 months instead of just a few weeks.

Julie Chen Moonves will once again be hosting the series, and this year’s batch of house guests includes an actual professional house guest, Kato Kaelin, who’s still stretching out his 15 minutes of fame from the O.J. trial. Also entering the house tonight are actors Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls, Cake Wars), Joey Lawrence (Melissa & Joey, Blossom), & Tom Green (Road Trip); singers and/or reality TV stars Tamar Braxton (The Braxtons), Kandi Burruss (Xscape), and Dina Lohan (Living Lohan); and athletes Lolo Jones (Olympic track and bobsled), Ryan Lochte (swimming Gold medalist), Natalie Eva Marie (WWE wrestler), & Ricky Williams (former NFL superstar). Finally, there’s 10-day White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci.

It looks like another odd mix of folks, though there are several cliques that could be formed or folks who already know one another going into the house. It will be interesting to see who teams up with whom and who ultimately wins the season.

Catch everyone moving in tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, Manifest, The Resident, The Passage, and Arrow.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/20/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Showtime launches the new comedy Black Monday. On October 19, 1987, also known as Black Monday, Wall Street experienced the worst stock market crash in history. Who or what caused the crash still remains a mystery to this day. Showtime’s outrageous, over-the-top comedy opens one year before that tragic day, when there seemed to be no end to money, drugs, and opulence of the 1980s. Mo Monroe (Don Cheadle, House of Lies) is living the high life (literally), riding around in his Lamborghini limousine with an endless supply of cocaine. He is the founder of a small Wall Street trading firm known as the Jammer Group. He likes to party and take risks and hires the underdogs who don’t have the pedigree or connections to join the bigger blue blood firms. Dawn (Regina Hall, Insecure) is Mo’s head trader and partner in crime. She’s a tough, intelligent woman who has managed to rise to the top of what is largely a boy’s club. The Jammer Group is filled with misfits, like Keith (Paul Scheer, The League, Fresh Off the Boat), whose life is a mess, and the lines between parting and work are often blurred.

Blair Pfaff (Andrew Rannells, Girls, The New Normal) is a mild-mannered, wide-eyed new Wharton business school graduate with a rich, demanding girlfriend, Tiff (Casey Wilson, Happy Endings). He has invented an amazing algorithm that can figure out what stocks to buy and sell, and so Blair seems to have his pick of the top firms to join…until he crosses paths with Mo, who burns all of Blair’s bridges, leaving him only one choice, the Jammer Group. The cast also includes a host of other recognizable comedic actors, such as Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, in dual roles as the twin Lehman brothers), Eugene Cordero (The Good Place, Wrecked), Kadeem Hardison (Love Is_), Yassir Lester (Making History, Champions), and Kurt Braunohler (Lady Dynamite). This show definitely won’t be for everyone, but it looks like it could be a wild, fun trip back to the 80s, when greed was good, and everything was in excess. I’ll definitely be checking out more episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “365,” wide-eyed Blair is thrust into the insane world of 80s Wall Street; Mo enacts his master plan to take over the Georgina Jeans Company.

Head back in time tonight on Showtime at 10/9c.

You can also check out tonight’s premiere early via YouTube, Showtime’s website, or On Demand.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Worst Cooks in America, Crashing, Counterpart, and SMILF.
