If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/16/14

Can I just say that I LOVE shopping with other people’s money? *laugh* A group I belong to on Facebook has adopted a troop and a platoon of Army soldiers overseas, and I’ve been collecting donations and letters from them to buy things to put in a care package for each group of soldiers. It’s been a lot of fun. 🙂 But moving on to TV, tonight’s another great night, so we have some recommendations for what you should watch. Check them out!

americasgottalent2013smallMy pick tonight is the last performances episode this season of America’s Got Talent. Last week, the group was narrowed down to the final 6, and while it’s not my perfect six, I’m a big fan of several of the remaining acts. My top pick is Mat Franco, the cutey patootie magician. He’s really amazing, and his personality just shines every time he gets on stage (or off stage, as the case may be, since most of—if not all of—his acts take place down at the judges’ table and in the audience. I love watching him every time and could watch him all day. I also love AcroArmy. They’re crazy good at what they do, which is kind of dance combined with gymnastics combined with cheerleading. I love watching them because they have that danger element that doesn’t make me cringe and look away. Sons of Serendip are an amazing musical group, and I’m glad they made it through. I’m not a huge fan of Miguel Dakota, Quintavious Johnson, and Emily West, the remaining three acts, all of whom are singers. They’re all good, yeah, but…something about all of them puts me off. I’d much rather have had the other magic acts & musicians Emil & Dariel. So my fingers are crossed for Mat, and if not him, then AcroArmy or Sons of Serendip!

On tonight’s episode, “Finale Performance,” the Final 6 acts compete one last time live at the legendary Radio City Music Hall for the chance to win one million dollars and be named the most talented act in America.

Check out the last performances of the season on tonight’s two-hour new episode on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, 19 Kids & Counting, The Jennie Garth Project, Married at First Sight, MasterChef Canada, & Chopped.

themindyproject916smallI am ridiculously excited about tonight’s season premiere of The Mindy Project. In fact, so excited I can barely explain myself. To some, it may seem insane—okay, to a lot of you, it may seem insane—however, after last season, there is so much to be excited for. Mindy and Danny being a couple is simply fabulous and hilarious all at once, which is bound to bring hilarity to all aspects of the show. All funny moments aside, I just like them as a couple because Danny helps Mindy be serious and Mindy helps Danny not be such a hardass. I’m also looking forward to Peter and his relationship ups and downs—his character was one of the best additions last season for sure. Enough chatter… Let’s get this fantastic season started!

On tonight’s premiere, “We’re a Couple Now, Haters!” it is the beginning of “firsts” for Mindy and Danny, as they try to set new relationship boundaries for each other in the office. Meanwhile, things get a little complicated when Jeremy tries to organize a charity event with Peter’s girlfriend, Lauren (guest star Tracey Wigfield); and Morgan’s cousin, Lou Tookers (guest star Rob McElhenney), pays a visit to the doctor’s office.

To see how this season begins, tune in to FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching New Girl, vAmerica’s Got Talent, and Utopia.

newgirl916smallTonight, New Girl returns for the start of its fourth season. At the end of last season, the gang joined Nick and Jess on their couple’s cruise, and it ended up being a disaster, with all of them locked in a tiny room living “Lord of the Flies” style. In the end, Nick and Jess decided to just be friends again, and I think that’s what this show needed. The third season was a bit of a mess, and the writers didn’t seem to know what to do with those characters once they got them together.

While I haven’t yet seen tonight’s premiere, I have only seen positive remarks from those who have, so I have high hopes this series can return to the fun, creative show it once was. I am hoping they find a way to utilize Coach and Winston this season. I also wonder if we will see Schmidt and Cece get back together at some point.

On tonight’s episode, “The Last Wedding,” Jess attends a wedding with the guys and makes a pact for each of them to hook up with someone by the end of the night. As the evening progresses, Jess competes with another woman for the best man’s attention; Schmidt and Nick entertain an unusual proposal; Winston recuperates from police academy; and Coach realizes that every woman at the reception is already familiar to him.

See if Jess can get the boys hooked up tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Utopia, The Mindy Project, Sons of Anarchy, Face Off, Wizard Wars, and Finding Carter.
