If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/19/13

It’s a slow night in television land, but there’s still a few things to keep your night interesting. Let’s see what we think you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

billboardmusicsmallSeeing as there isn’t a whole lot on tonight that I watch usually, I’ll be watching The 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Tracy Morgan is hosting, and I usually find him quite amusing, but I’m also excited to see Prince receive the Billboard Icon Award. I enjoy watching a few good musical performances, and I’m hoping to see some of my favorites win.

On tonight’s presentation, the festivities take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and the artists are recognized for the fan support they’ve garnered.

To see if your favorite artist wins tonight, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Iron Chef America.

ironchefamericasmallEven though my least two favorite chefs competed in week one and I was disappointed in the winner in week two, I still really enjoy watching Iron Chef America. I just love cooking competition shows, and this is definitely one of my favorites. Last week, Iron Chef Jose Garces competed against Iron Chef Marc Forgione, and in what I feel like was a surprising victory, Chef Garces came out on top—by quite a large margin, at that. Tonight’s winner will advance to the finals and will compete against next week’s winner—who will either be Chef Garces or Iron Chef Morimoto. I have my fingers crossed for a Chef Michael Symon vs Chef Masaharu Morimoto finale battle, but I guess we’ll see!

On tonight’s episode, “Tournament of Champions: Symon vs. Zakarian,” Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian enters the heat of Kitchen Stadium to challenge Iron Chef Michael Symon to an intense culinary competition of epic proportions, and the victor of the battle will take on Masaharu Morimoto or Jose Garces.

See who comes out on top tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos & Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night.

thesimpsons520smallTonight, two of Fox’s longest-running animated series finish out their seasons with double-episodes. I have been watching The Simpsons and Family Guy since they first premiered and still find both shows to be just as enjoyable as always. It used to be that Family Guy was the one that pushed the boundaries, but I’ve noticed that The Simpsons has been getting more and more risque with its jokes over the years—I guess it’s a sign of the times. I’ve always wondered if parents find these a little too mature for their kids or if the jokes just go over their heads. After tonight, I’ll miss my weekly dose of primetime animation, but at least there’s the final season of Futurama to look forward to next month.

familyguy520smallOn tonight’s episodes of The Simpsons, “The Saga of Carl” finds Homer, Moe, Lenny, and Carl hitting the lottery, but when Carl takes off for Iceland with the winnings, the others set off after him. Then, in “Dangers on a Train,” Marge unwittingly gets involved with a Web site for married people seeking affairs and meets a charming man (voice of Seth MacFarlane) who takes quite an interest in her.

On tonight’s episodes of Family Guy, “Road to Vegas” finds Stewie and Brian hopping in the time machine and heading for Las Vegas and a Bette Midler concert, but the machine malfunctions and one of them is rendered “lucky,” while the other is “unlucky.” Then, in “No Country Club for Old Men,” the Griffins receive an invite to join a posh country club.

See the one-hour episode of The Simpsons on FOX at 8/7c, followed by the one-hour Family Guy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Cleveland Show, Game of Thrones, Veep, Family Tree, and Nurse Jackie.
