If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/21/11

It’s another light night for new TV episodes. However, despite that, there are still a whole bunch of finales tonight: the season-enders of American Horror Story and Work of Art, the first half of The X Factor season finale, plus the mid-season finale (after only 4 episodes!) of I Hate My Teenage Daughter. If nothing else, there’s always reruns of the Wednesday ABC comedies! 🙂

I am really looking forward to tonight’s season finale of American Horror Story. Last week, Violet told her father that she was dead and told Tate to take a hike. Meanwhile, Vivien went into labor and was rushed into the house, where in a very psychedelic and manic scene, the doctor and nurse ghosts helped to deliver the babies. The first (presumably Ben’s) was stillborn, while the other was quickly whisked away by Constance. Vivien died shortly after giving birth and joined her daughter.

So where do we go from here? During the birthing scene, we saw lots of quick flashes of Ben sitting in the corner, going crazy. Was all of this in his mind? Has he been crazy this whole time and none of this actually happened? Or maybe that was a sign of things to come. What is going to happen to this child, and is it the Antichrist? Constance and every ghost in the house seems to have his or her sights set on this child. It doesn’t seem like Ben is in any state to handle a child, so perhaps Vivien will try to raise the child as a ghost mom. I really have no idea what to expect in the finale, or what the plan is for next season (i.e. will we follow an entirely new family’s fate in the Murder House?). Hopefully, we’ll get some idea of the direction of the show tonight.

In tonight’s episode, “Afterbirth,” Constance schemes to raise Tate’s baby as her own.

Last week’s episode of Hot in Cleveland was fantastic. Melanie’s dress went missing from the dry cleaners, and she wanted it back so badly, when she found out it had been sent home with a woman who had just passed away, she and the girls all went to the wake, hoping to steal away upstairs and find the dress. (Well, and Victoria learned that the woman had collected every episode of a soap opera magazine, including the one issue that featured her on the cover from years before that she was missing in her own collection, so she wanted to find it.) They did find the dress—in the casket on the dead woman! Melanie convinced Joy to crawl in and try and switch clothes with the woman. That didn’t work out so well… lol Surprise! *rolls eyes* Meanwhile, Elka was flirting with all the older men at the wake and ran into Roy, who convinced her that the woman had been murdered. Overall, it was just a very funny thirty minutes.

On tonight’s episode, “Happy Fat,” Melanie, Joy, and Victoria give their Cleveland neighbors a makeover; Elka tries to keep with her younger man.

It’s here. The final week of The X Factor, and what a journey it has been. I’ll be okay with any of the remaining singers winning, because I feel that every one of them has worked hard for it. After this season ends, they need to go back to the drawing board and get a new judge (axe Nicole), and possibly a new host.

On tonight’s all new episode, the final 3 lay it all on the stage for the last time, in the hopes of winning the $5 million dollars and their own Pepsi commercial.

Tonight is also the second season finale of Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. We are down to the final three contestants: Young, Kymia, and Sara. I was so happy to see Lola go last week—she was a total itch of the B variety. However, I was not happy to see Dusty go. His work was the only stuff I actually kind of liked this season. Though, I have never really watched this series because of the art—I just enjoy the general craziness of the contestants and to see how they cope with the materials/challenges they are given. (If there is anyone who does actually like the art on the show, you can get your own “work of art” from the second season at OverstockArt.com.) Out of the remaining contestants, I guess I’m kind of rooting for Kymia, just because she seemed to be the person who got picked on the most by the other contestants.

In tonight’s episode, the final three contestants have been sent home to prepare a full solo exhibition. Climaxing in a large-scale gala opening at the Brooklyn Museum, the finalists present their collections to the judging panel to determine who will be “The Next Great Artist.” Artist KAWS is the guest judge.

See it tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Work of Art: The Next Great Artist @ Clicker.

I wasn’t sure how much I’d enjoy The Exes when it started, but I really am liking it. The cast is so great, and already, they work so well together. Last week was so funny, because unknowingly, Holly set Stuart up with a woman who turned out to be a prostitute. Stuart really had himself fooled that he had fallen hard and fast, and Holly & the other woman were reluctant about breaking his heart by having the woman “break up with him.” Meanwhile, Haskell was trying to one-up his ex-wife by pretending he was on a cruise. Unfortunately, it backfired, when she hit him up for more alimony because she thought he was doing so well. It was fun watching him play dress up and pose for different “fun” times on his “cruise.”

On tonight’s episode, “Lutz and the Real Girl,” Haskell panics when his online girlfriend surprises him with a visit; Holly discovers a homeless man in the laundry room.

There are those (*cough*Kyle*cough*) who really dislike I Hate My Teenage Daughter, but I like it. There’s no way it’s a blockbuster hit, but I think we need to give it more than 2 episodes to judge how much we like it. Personally, I enjoy it, because as a parent, there are moments you look at your children, scared for the future of the world, that this is what we’re leaving behind. For the most part, we love our kids, but there are moments where we have all despised our children – especially their behaviour.

On tonight’s episode, “Teenage Dating,” Annie reluctantly agrees to let Sophie start dating a 16-year-old boy and is pleasantly surprised when she sees the positive influence he has on her, until he reveals a surprise of his own. Meanwhile, Jack agrees to help Mackenzie on a school report about the court system, and in return, gets makeover advice from both Nikki and Mackenzie when they decide he needs a little change in order to with a big case he’s worried about.

    Megan, you should really see a doctor about that cough 🙂

    Glad I’m not the only one enjoying IHMTD. I think it’s improved substantially over the pilot, and the cast is really strong. Hope it comes back once American Idol drops down to 90 minutes in the spring!

    Kyle – The doctor told me to surround myself with people who have better taste. So because I like you, I’ll keep the couch. 🙂
