If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/13/16

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Last week’s NCIS dealt with a congresswoman who was receiving threats, including a dead rat left in her car with a note saying she was next. The woman didn’t seem to take them seriously at all, until her assistant was killed. She annoyed me the entire episode. I guess you have to admire her “can do” attitude, but it was “must get elected, no matter the consequences, and that irritated me. I did call who the killer was. Shame on the assistant’s girlfriend! And I was kind of shocked to see Vance and the congresswoman flirting and agreeing to go out on a date. (Again, she annoyed me there. She was way too…take-charge, too…I dunno…something, for me. LOL)

I love holiday episodes on my procedurals, and I have loved all the episodes of NCIS where we see a young Ducky. So combine those two things, and I know I’m going to love tonight’s episode! Plus, Fornell is back, and he’s a riot, especially his interactions with Gibbs.

On tonight’s episode, “The Tie That Binds,” after the NCIS team tracks evidence from the murder of a Navy captain to Ducky’s deceased mother, Ducky looks back and questions a pivotal life choice he made 37 years ago. Also, the team exchanges holiday gifts, and Gibbs spends Christmas dinner with Fornell. Adam Campbell returns as Young Ducky, and Juliette Angelo returns as Emily Fornell.

Find out what choice Ducky questions tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chopped Junior, American Housewife, Bull, MasterChef Canada, Aftermath, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Fall TV is winding down, and tonight all four shows in the ABC’s Tuesday comedy block – The Middle, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, and The Real O’Neals – are airing their midseason finales, and that means fun Christmas-themed episodes! As I’ve said in the past, I’m a huge fan of holiday episodes on these kinds of family sitcoms. They always find clever ways to re-tell classic Christmas stories, such as A Christmas Carol or It’s a Wonderful Life, or come up with completely new and original holiday tales. These kinds of Christmas-themed episodes always help to put me into the holiday spirit. I’m especially interested to see what happens on The Middle after last week, when Axl dropped the bombshell that he and April got married. How are Frankie and Mike going to react to this news?!

On tonight’s fall finale of The Middle, “A Very Marry Christmas,” Sue keeps a huge secret from the family; Brick becomes popular with the neighbor’s kids after watching them once; Mike is unsure how to react to a gift from Bill Norwood.

Then on American Housewife, “Krampus Katie,” Viv gets a reluctant Katie to help out with the school Christmas pageant; Greg takes Taylor and Oliver to a nursing home to cheer up the residents.

Then on Fresh Off the Boat, “Where Are the Giggles?” when the family members accidentally forget Evan at home while they go to a movie, Jessica promises to make it up to him; after a fall, Marvin sees the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

And finally, on The Real O’Neals, “The Real Christmas,” determined to win the Christmas choir competition, Eileen gives the solo to the newest member; Jimmy spies on a rival choir; Shannon asks Pat about a present she wants to give Ethan.

Laugh along with me tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Scream Queens, Sweet/Vicious, Good Behavior, and Shooter.

NCIS: New Orleans was quite emotional on its last episode because Sonja finally found out about LaSalle ‘s secret love child. I felt bad for both of them because we know that they are meant to be together, but he’s torn between being a good dad and trying to do right by Sonja. It was also sad because Gregorio left to go back to D.C., even though she knows her place is with the team. Hopefully Gregorio will come back soon and this time she’ll stay.

On tonight’s episode, “Overdrive,” after a Marine corporal who is an amateur race car driver has a fatal crash on the track, the NCIS team investigates when they suspect foul play.

To see if the team can save the day yet again, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Bull, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NCIS, and Chopped.
