If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/23/12

We’re mid way through the week, and we’re still talking about all of the massive season finales that are still going on. Break ups, shake ups, deaths, laughs, and drama have all captivated viewers this season no matter what show you were tuning in to. As we grow closer to the end of the week, chatter will continue to blaze about what did or didn’t happen on our favorite shows. Take time to reflect on this season’s finales and settle in for another bumpy road tonight as you bid farewell or say so long for now to more of your fall must-see TV programs. It was a wild ride, and we’re already looking forward to the next one and what it has in store for fans!

The culmination of a fiery season is upon us, and you know the season finale is going to be off the charts smoking tonight! Last week on Revenge, a painful loss of Jack’s dog Sam brought a stronger bond between Jack and Emily. Victoria formed a new alliance that potentially sealed Conrad’s fate. Also, after a tug of war between her parents during a therapy session, Charlotte sought comfort from Declan. However, when she found him in the company of another girl, she began her vendetta against him. Emily came close to fulfilling her promise of killing the man with the white hair for her father’s death with help from Nolan. Unfortunately, when the last few minutes of the episode aired, we found the man with the white hair had the upper hand – and his mitts on Nolan.

On the season finale, “Reckoning,” with the end in sight, Emily pushes forward fearlessly as she closes in on the final phases of her plan for revenge. The Graysons continue their downward spiral into the rabbit hole of self-destruction. Also, a massive and explosive event leaves much hanging in the balance as courses are altered and even more becomes left in question.

Tonight is the season finale of Law & Order: SVU. It’s been a great season for me. I hated not watching the last couple of seasons, because I do love the show, but I was so tired of all the Stabler drama and missed Benson being there the majority of the time. Their decision to bring in Kelli Giddish & Danny Pino as the characters of Rollins & Amaro was perfect. I love both the actors and their characters. And having Benson there has been great. I’ve also really enjoyed the blossoming partnership and friendship between Rollins & Fin. And I wish Benson would find a man that she didn’t have to stop seeing because of their jobs. Seeing her happy and in a good relationship was great after 12 seasons!

On tonight’s episode, “Rhodium Nights,” an underage escort is found dead at a wild bachelor party, and Captain Cragen cautions his team to investigate with discretion, as there were several high-profile people at the scene. In their efforts to question a well-known leader in the New York escort world , Benson and Amaro encounter former SVU detective Brian Cassidy (guest star Dean Winters, who played the characters at the beginning of the series), who’s been working undercover. With his help, the detectives dig deeper into a vicious power struggle between the two top escort businesses, but before the case is cracked, a shocking event threatens to destroy the life of one SVU squad member. Peter Jacobson (House, The Starter Wife) also guest stars.

Don’t miss the finale tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, Modern Family, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, Around the World in 80 Plates, Restaurant: Impossible, & Total Blackout.

When I first heard about the show Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, I was hesitant to like it – but after watching the pilot, I was hooked from the beginning. It’s been a hilarious journey this season, and I am so excited for tonight’s finale. Last week, we watched as Chloe encouraged June to try casual sex, and a sex tape of Chloe and James got leaked to the press. June went through with it and slept with the hot soy-latte guy, only to find herself getting sucked into a relationship the day after, but Chloe stomped on that by smashing June’s cell phone – so silly but funny. Chloe and James come to the realization after trying to do reshoots for the sex tape that they have actual feelings for each other, and they were both shocked and dismayed.

On tonight’s season finale,”Shitagi Nashi,” June tries to keep up with Chloe and her party lifestyle; James loses it when he finds out that Dean Cain has a bigger dressing room than he has.

To get your fill of hilarious nonsense, tune in to ABC at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23 @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Modern Family, Auction Hunters, and Law & Order: SVU.

Tonight, another hilarious season of Modern Family comes to an end. Last week, Alex had the hots for her teacher and hoped to impress him with her living Norman Rockwell painting. Gloria was upset over Jay’s relationship with the waitress at his favorite diner and the fact that he had a sandwich named after him. Meanwhile, Luke was given an award for putting out a fire he actually caused, which bothered Manny. And Phil had difficulty firing a “lazy” Mitchell, while Claire and Cameron disagreed on parenting methods.

It’s always fun to see what pairings of characters we will get each week. Last week, it was like spouse swapping with Mitchell/Phil and Claire/Cameron storylines, and I always enjoy it whenever they pair up the wild Luke with the more-refined Manny. Wednesdays this summer just won’t be the same without new episodes of my favorite ABC Wednesday comedies!

In tonight’s episode, “Baby on Board,” Gloria’s bilingualism comes in handy on Mitchell and Cameron’s quest to adopt another child. Meanwhile, Jay and Manny help Lily get ready for a dance recital; Alex goes to her first prom; and Haley announces her future plans, which come as a shock to her family.

Watch the finale tonight on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Modern Family @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, Revenge, Around the World in 80 Plates, and Total Blackout.
