If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/6/12

This week begins the parade of season finales, although realistically, it’s not the end of the world as much as normal because there are so many new shows to fill the void, my TV will be almost as busy. Let’s take a look at what you should be watching tonight.

Megan’s Choice

GCB has brought a whole new level of devious, delicious joy to my life. These women are seriously some of the coolest, vindictive, sexy, and awesome characters on television today. I love the whole reformed mean girl idea, but I also love how Amanda still has her bitch side in her when she needs it. The fact that we finally saw all the women working together for the greater good last week was awesome. I loved the all girls barbeque team, and I particularly enjoyed watching them kick some pompous male ass.

On tonight’s season finale, “Revelation,” when Carlene takes the GCBs down to unincorporated Juarez for the groundbreaking ceremony for the Condos for Christian Living, the GCBs find themselves in danger. Meanwhile, Amanda’s suspicions regarding Luke lead to a surprising discovery about Ripp.

To see where our favorite bitches are left standing at the end of this season, tune in to ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of GCB @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording NYC 22, The Amazing Race, Harry’s Law, Once Upon a Time, & Desperate Housewives.

Ahhh, tonight is the “finale” of the latest round of Chopped All Stars. Honestly, I thought Michael Symon had it in the bank until last week, when Marcus Samuelsson won. Out of the 3 contestants he is facing tonight, Michael has to worry about Marcus the most. Do I think he can win? I do, absolutely. Will it be an epic battle? Oh, I think so. Honestly, I’m ok with either of them or Jeffrey winning, as long as they stomp Penny into defeat in the first round. *laugh*

On tonight’s “Grand Finale,” the chefs have to deal with beef heart in the Appetizer Round, fish and greens in the Entree Round, & Panforte and pancetta in the Dessert Round.

See who wins for their charity tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Chopped @ Clicker.

Tonight, the 20th installment of The Amazing Race comes to an end in a special 2-hour episode. Last week, it was Mark & Bopper who were eliminated. They won the Fast Forward after Rachel refused to shave her head but were just too far behind from the previous leg to catch up. While I don’t blame any team with a woman for skipping the shave your head challenge, it was the way Rachel whined about her “$500 extensions” that made me lose any sympathy. I also started to dislike Art & JJ last week, as they really showed an ugly side with the way they were complaining about the other teams not running the race the way they would. I actually found myself hoping for them to end up in last place and get eliminated.

We are down to the final four teams: professional reality TV stars Brendon & Rachel, Army wife & combat pilot Rachel & Dave, dating divorcees Vanessa & Ralph, and border patrol agents Art & JJ. Out of these teams, I can easily say I am rooting for Rachel & Dave to win. They have been doing great this race, currently tying the top number of first place finishes in TAR history. I will really only be upset if Brendon & Rachel end up winning this thing. I really can’t stand them and want to see their professional reality TV show careers come to an end.

In tonight’s finale, “It’s a Great Place to Become Millionaires,” the final four teams race through Japan before traveling to Honolulu, where the winning duo claim the $1 million top prize. Learn where to find episodes online of The Amazing Race @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording NYC 22, Once Upon a Time, Desperate Housewives, GCB, The Cleveland Show, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Chopped All Stars, Game of Thrones, Veep, and The Big C.

Last week on Mob Wives, Renee dealt with the fallout of her father taking the rap and Junior’s betrayal. She also became determined to get both Karen and Drita together to resolve their differences. Big Ang helped conspire with Renee, but really Big Ang was on a beauty mission of her own. Drita received some shocking news about Lee’s release from prison and also realized a dream when she was featured in a French Montana video. Plus, Karen opened up a spa to put down some more permanent roots in New York but was very torn when her daughter Karina wasn’t on the same page.

On an all new episode, while Karen and Drita both contemplate Renee’s reconciliation request, Karen reveals to Ramona that she is actualy considering it. Renee goes on a radio show called “Locked Down Love” and finally goes public with all of her demons and even more shocking details on Junior’s betrayal. Meanwhile, in typical fashion, Big Ang spends the day spoiling her son AJ, and Drita receives a crushing letter from her husband Lee. Also, Carla is worried about her husband Joe, who has suddenly become distant and is stunned to learn about his whereabouts when she finally confronts him. Plus, when Karen tries to convince Karina’s father, Dave, to move to NYC and sparks fly.

Tune in at 8/7c to VH1 for a scorching episode! Learn where to find episodes online of Mob Wives @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching Once Upon a Time, GCB, Mad Men, The Apprentice, and The Amazing Race!

I will admit right now that I’m a Disney Channel junkie. I have been for years. I watch many shows with my kiddo (who, like me, is too old for most of them. lol). They are usually pretty cute and funny. One of our favorites was Wizards of Waverly Place, but it’s over now. *cry* But I’m quite happy because another of our favorites, Good Luck Charlie, has its season premiere tonight with back-to-back episodes. This show is too darn adorable, and Mia Talerico, who plays Charlie, is just too adorable. During the Christmas special TV movie, viewers learned that mom Amy was pregnant with their fifth baby, and the season picks up a few months after that. Josh & I can’t wait! lol

On tonight’s premiere, “Make Room for Baby,” now in her third trimester, Amy decides the family needs to move into a bigger house to make room for baby number five. However, even after all the furniture is packed up, Amy finds that the house is still filled with the incredible memories the family shared within its walls as she takes a nostalgic walk down memory lane.

Then on the second episode, “Bad Luck Teddy,” everyone at school thinks Teddy is a jinx on Spencer since the basketball team has been losing ever since they got back together. Meanwhile, Gabe misunderstands a conversation he overhears between Amy and Bob and thinks he is being sent to a military school, and PJ has a hard time letting go of his old hair salon until he discovers that his new hairdresser is a cute girl.

Enjoy the cuteness tonight on Disney Channel at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Good Luck Charlie @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars & Iron Chef America.
