If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/18/17

Ahh, gotta love it when the fall TV season starts up again! Strap in, ladies and gentlemen. It’s going to be a fun ride as we start up the Remotes again on a pretty regular basis. After a slow summer, I can’t wait!

My pick tonight is the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars. I haven’t been a regular watcher of this show for years now, because most of the time, I couldn’t care less about the celebrities they have on. But this season, I think it’s going to be fun for a few reasons, at least at the beginning. First, there’s married couple Nick & Vanessa Lachey, who are paired up with married couple Maks Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd. Some of my other favorites are Debbie Gibson (I mean, I was an 80s music girl…) & Alan Bersten, Drew Scott (I love Property Brothers & their other shows!) & Emma Slater, & Terrell Owens (I’ve liked him for a while since I played fantasty football with him as my top pick) & Cheryl Burke, whom I also love.

Other contestants are Barbara Corcoran (Shark Tank) & Keo Motsepe, Derek Fisher (former Los Angeles Laker basketball player) & Sharna Burgess, Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle) & Witney Carson, Jordan Fisher (Grease: LIVE & singer) & Lindsay Arnold, Lindsey Stirling (acclaimed violinist)& Mark Ballas, Nikki Bella (WWE Diva) & Artem Chigvintsev, Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars) & Gleb Savchenko, and Victoria Arlen (gold & silver medalist in swimming) & Val Chmerkovskiy.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, each couple will perform a salsa, foxtrot, tango, or cha cha, vying for America’s vote for the first time. No couples will be eliminated on week one, and they will all advance to week two of the competition.

Check out the new celebrities and pick your favorites to win tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRIng So You Think You Can Dance & To Tell the Truth.

It has been a very slow summer for television, which has led to a lack of me… Fear not! I’m back! Tonight there is a show worth writing about, and it is none other than Midnight, Texas.

I have read the novel by Charlaine Harris and enjoyed it, so that made me hesitant to watch the show in the beginning. I’m happy to say I was thrilled with the show. Manfred was cast well, and the story lines surrounding him talking to dead people are well executed and make me love his character more. Last week he proved his loyalty to the town when he helped save the town from the arrival of a nest of vampires who were planning on killing the entire town. Now from here I’m hoping the town can band together and fight the impending evil so they can continue to live their peaceful lives off the grid in Midnight.

On tonight’s episode, “Sexy Beast,” Manfred’s ability to see the dead leads him to uncover an ancient supernatural who seduces and feeds on men. To protect their town’s supernatural anonymity, Manfred, with the help of Fiji, Lem, Joe, and Creek, venture out of the safety of Midnight to a roadside bar to stop the supernatural killer. Meanwhile, Bobo must confront the dangerous bikers who threaten to expose his past. While carrying out a hit, Olivia discovers an unlikely link to her father.

To find out if they can stop this killer in time, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching American Ninja Warrior and Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Kyle and I differ on when Netflix (as well as Amazon & Hulu) shows should be posted. For me, I’m recommending this one tonight because it premieres in the late hours of the night tonight/wee hours of the morning. That way you can watch it first thing when you wake up (or at 3AM if you can’t sleep! LOL).

On that note, my first pick is Friends from College, which premieres the entire first season on Netflix. Keegan-Michael Key (Playing House, Key & Peele), Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), Annie Parisse (The Following, Law & Order), Nat Faxon (Ben & Kate, Married), Fred Savage (The Grinder), & Jae Suh Park star as a group of friends from Harvard who are about to turn forty years old. They must balance old friendships, former romantic entanglements, and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past.

With Facebook bringing high school and college friends back together, I think this show is very timely. I think a lot of people will be able to relate, and with such a great cast, I have high hopes that it’ll be a lot of fun to watch for everyone.

Check out the entire first season on Netflix tonight/Friday morning at 3:01AM/2:01AMc.

I’m so excited about tonight’s series premiere of Salvation on CBS. I’m a big fan of natural disaster movies, and the cast of this show combined with that type of story line makes me almost giddy with anticipation. A staggering discovery comes to light: an enormous asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth. Without alerting the public, MIT grad student Liam Cole (Charlie Rowe, Red Band Society) and tech billionaire Darius Tanz (Santiago Cabrera, Big Little Lies, Merlin, The Musketeers) team up to save humanity from this impending apocalypse. The government has its own approach. Grace Barrows (Jennifer Finnigan, Tyrant, Close to Home, Better with You) is both the Pentagon Press Secretary and a single mom. Deputy Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards (Ian Anthony Dale, Hawaii Five-0) has been tasked with running the DOD’s own top-secret plan to deflect the asteroid. Meanwhile, Darius recruits an aspiring sci-fi writer, Jillian (Jacqueline Byers, Ascension, Roadies), to work on a theoretical approach to saving humanity—a project that might prove to be all too real.

I love Ian Anthony Dale and Jennifer Finnigan. He was always great as Adam on Hawaii Five-0, and he’s…very good-looking. (In fact, the series as a whole has some very good eye candy for everyone!) And I’ve loved Finnigan since Close to Home, so…I’m super excited about it.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when MIT grad student Liam Cole discovers an asteroid is set to collide with Earth in 186 days, he joins forces with tech billionaire Darius Tanz and the U.S. government to try and stop it…and together they stumble onto the greatest conspiracy never told. Neil deGrasse Tyson guest stars as himself.

Start your 186-day journey with me tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Cutthroat Kitchen, The F Word with Gordon Ramsey, Blood Drive, Cooks vs Cons, & I’m Sorry.

I loved the first season and first half of the second season of To Tell the Truth. I never watched reruns of the original, but I love this new version, hosted by Anthony Anderson – and frankly, by his mother, who sits on the sidelines and interjects her own commentary. LOL The celebrities are usually fun to watch as they try to figure out who is lying and who is telling the truth. The best ones are usually the ones who really get into it. They don’t worry about what they look or sound like – they just let loose and have fun, really get into the spirit of the show.

On tonight’s episode, celebrities Justin Long, Arielle Kebbel, Nikki Glaser, and Kal Penn are presented with a variety of participants with interesting traits, from the only person in the world to bike to the South Pole, to the “Doggy Designer to the Stars,” as well as Usher’s choreographer.

See who is lying and who is telling the truth tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Big Star Little Star, Brother vs Brother, Cutthroat Kitchen, The F Word, Blood Drive, & Lip Sync Battle.
