If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/28/13

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to work we go… I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! We had a pretty good day here, and now we’re ready to settle into the summer routine of being home alone all summer with my kiddo. Eek. LOL I don’t know about you, but I’ll be glad to have new TV every night to relax and unwind to. 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

littlecouple528smallI’ve become enamored with The Little Couple this season. Jen & Bill are just the sweetest couple and really fun to watch. Both are under four feet tall. He owns his own business. She is a doctor (neonatologist, I think…). And they’ve been trying to have a baby. After problems with invitro and a miscarriage with their surrogate, they decided to adopt. They finally decided on a little boy (a couple of years old) from China they’ve named Will and a little girl (8 months old) from India they’ve named Zoey…and both are dwarves as well. Last week, Jen & Bill went to China to adopt their son. At the end of the episode, they were waiting in the room of the hotel, waiting for their adoption liason to bring the little boy in. It’s so nerve-racking, but so exciting!

On tonight’s episode, “Best Day Yet!” the big day arrives as Bill and Jen anxiously wait to meet their new son William, but nervousness and anxiety overwhelm them.

See the new family tonight on TLC at 10:30/9:30c.

Megan’s Choice

familysossmallTonight is the premiere of Family S.O.S with Jo Frost. America’s favorite nanny is back and is helping families come back from the edge of destruction. It could be marital strife or teenage issues. Jo is coming to the rescue. They are all going to learn to rebuild with the help of this nanny.

I’ve always been a fan of Jo’s and loved her on Supernanny—some of those children were incredibly difficult. The way she handles the challenges is astounding.

On tonight’s premiere, “If This Doesn’t Work, It’s Over,” the Quinn-Davises are a blended family, the kids are acting out, and the parents are on the verge of divorce.

To see if Jo can save this family, tune in to TLC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Body of Proof, and Extreme Weight Loss.
 

Kyle’s Choice

bodyofproof528smallTonight is the series finale of Body of Proof. I think it’s both good and bad that it is ending in this third season. This season has been a huge improvement over the previous two. This year, I have found the cases far more interesting and the series has had more of an action-movie feel to it. So while I’m happy to see it go out at the top of its game, it’s also a shame that it got cancelled while doing some of its best work.

I have no idea how far into the season the showrunners were when they found out this would be the final season. Hopefully we will get some sort of closure tonight. Will Megan learn the truth about her father? Will she and Tommy ride off into the sunset together?

On tonight’s episode, “Daddy Issues,” Megan’s father’s exhumation uncovers more questions about what she always believed was a suicide, and her mother suggests she examine his patient files for clues about his death and that of a patient.

Find out if viewers get closure tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Awkward. and Chopped.
 

JJ’s Choice

sytycd2013smallSo far on this season of So You Think You Can Dance, it appears that the producers have decided to focus on the good and move away from the ridiculous. I’ve been very excited with some of the talent we have been getting, and the guest judges are on fire (Twitch and Minnie Driver were good and refreshing. Jesse Tyler Ferguson is always great). A great way to kick off the season, and I’m excited to watch more!

On tonight’s episode, “Auditions 3,” the search for America’s favorite dancer continues in Boston, with guest judge Adam Shankman.

See if any awesome talent shows up on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Awkward..
 

Jenny’s Choice #2

reaperspecialsmallOne of my husband’s and my favorite shows a few years ago was Reaper, starring Bret Harrison, Missy Paragrym, Tyler Labine, Ray Wise, & Rick Gonzalez. It was canceled way too early, unfortunately. FEARnet, a network that—I believe—is solely on OnDemand on cable & satellite providers, is now airing the show, and tonight, they are bringing some of the cast back for a 30-minute “reunion” special. Awesome! Luckily, even those of us that don’t have access to FEARnet on their TV, the network is going to put the video up on their site (FEARnet.com) after so we can all view it.

On tonight’s reunion special, some of the original cast and crew will discuss the series’ popularity, its finale, and their rabid community of fans in a round-table format. Set to appear in the special are series stars Bret Harrison (Sam Oliver), Tyler Labine (Sock), and Ray Wise (The Devil), among others.

See it tonight on FEARnet at 9/8c (or at some point after on their website).

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Counting Cars, & Chopped.
