impastor92smallI have been really enjoying TV Land’s new comedy Impastor and was thrilled by the news earlier this week that the series has been picked up for a second season! One of the things I really enjoy about the show, besides the humor and wonderful cast, is the serialized nature of the story. While there’s always some hilarious new situations each week, I like how each episode builds off of the previous one — and usually leaves us with a mini cliffhanger for the next week.

In last week’s episode, 11-year-old photographer Miles caught Buddy having sex with Ashlee in the woods, demanding that he get to cop a feel with Dora in exchange for the photos. As Buddy tried to figure out a solution to his blackmail problem, more bad news arrived: Kenny’s dead body washed ashore, and the police wanted to speak with him. Meanwhile, Dora was organizing the town’s annual Reformation Day Fair; and Alden Schmidt purchased a burner phone to secretly call a prostitute. However, when Buddy discovered this, he used this information to get Schmidt to help solve his police problem.

On tonight’s episode, “Bingo Tell It On the Mountain,” Buddy is threatened by a new family in town; Dora asks Buddy for help to overcome a strange addiction; and Schmidt has a rendezvous with Ashlee.

To see how the season ends, tune in to TV Land at 10:30/9:30c

Tip: If your cable provider doesn’t carry TV Land in HD, set your season recording on Nickelodeon instead!

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Celebrity Wife Swap, MasterChef, Young & Hungry, Kevin from Work, Mr. Robot, The Jim Gaffigan Show, and Twinning.

rizzoliisles91smallBecause of my hospital stay in July, I got WAY backed up on TV. I’ve finally cleared 90% of it off, just in time for the new stuff to start. One of the things I was backed up on was Rizzoli & Isles, and I’m so glad I caught up in time for tonight’s summer finale. There’s been some fantastic stories this season. The most notable came the last couple of weeks, with the introduction of the fire at Jane’s apartment, which then led to Jane’s problem last week with her credit cards all being canceled…which in turn led them to realize someone has been stalking Jane and deliberately set fire to her apartment. Eek! There were a lot of great moments last week, though: the hippie guy at the beach who gave Jane the paper flower; Jane freaking out about the crowd and their cell phones when they arrested the bad guy; Korsak and Angela’s double date and subsequent explanation of how their s.o.’s know each other; the LA medical examiner, who was even stranger and nerdier than Maura can be.

After tonight’s summer finale, we’ll have the last six episodes of season 6 coming up sometime during the winter. Then next summer will be the final, shortened season for the show, which makes me sad. I am happy that the writers had a heads-up and can write a proper series finale. Thankfully, we have plenty of show to go before that day!

On tonight’s episode, “5:26,” when an old watch is found inside a balloon of cocaine in a dead woman’s stomach, figuring out its significance becomes the key to protecting Jane — and the people she loves.

See who’s after Jane and if they can catch him/her before it’s too late tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Playing House, & Hollywood Game Night.

rrkidscookoffsmallI know the Remote posts have been hit or miss lately. There’s not been a lot on that we wanted to recommend that we haven’t been recommending way too often. *laugh* Thankfully, the new season starts soon! Until then, I’m totally telling you that you should watch tonight’s new episode of Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off.

Normally, it’s Rachael and Guy Fieri, each mentoring a team of kid chefs, but this season, it’s Rachael alone, along with a different guest mentor/judge each week. I was impressed with the kids this season. I didn’t see any who immediately grated on my nerves as being too cocky or snotty like I’ve seen in the past. Another new twist this season is that instead of all the kids staying for the whole competition and gaining points throughout via cooking challenges, with the winner being the one with the most points at the end, this season, one kid chef is going home each week, just like on most regular cooking competition shows. So that should be interesting to see how the kids (and their parents!) handle it!

On tonight’s episode, “Fast Food Feud,” the seven chefs must put their own spin on a fast food classic. Food critic and Internet video star Daymon Patterson joins Rachael to judge the results.

See who excels and who goes home tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Penn & Teller: Fool Us,So You Think You Can Dance, & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

clipped818smallTonight, the first season of Clipped comes to an end on TBS. Last week, the gang’s former math teacher came to the shop, which upset Ben, who still held a grudge for how Mr. Painter had embarrassed him when he split his pants during class. However, at the funeral, Ben split his pants again while trying to gloat to the dead body. Meanwhile, Joy was looking for a sign as to whether or not she should try to fix her marriage. Mo was hopeful this meant he finally had a chance with her, but when Joy discovered she was pregnant, she decided it meant she should try to fix her marriage. However, after some reflection, she ultimately decided the pregnancy was a sign to end her marriage, which she did, but Mo was too scared to make his move.

When this series first started, I was afraid the Boston accents were going to grate on me, but I’ve really enjoyed this first season (save for the four sisters who live in the apartment across the street). How will this first season come to a close? Will Mo finally make his move and tell Joy how he feels about her? And what does the future hold for the rest of the gang? Will tonight’s season finale end in some kind of cliffhanger, and will the show be back for a second season?

On tonight’s episode, “Reunion,” the gang revisit their adolescence at a high school reunion. Elsewhere, Joy is stuck at the barbershop with Lonnie as he waits for his date.

See how the reunion goes tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Zoo, Hollywood Game Night, Playing House, Face Off, Scream, and Another Period.

kevinfromwork812smallTonight, ABC Family kicks off its new workplace comedy, Kevin From Work, with a double-dose of episodes. Kevin (Noah Reid, Backpackers) is about to leave his life in LA for a new job in Italy. He has been madly in love with his cube neighbor Audrey (Paige Spara) for the past 3 years and has never had the courage to tell her. So in a drunken haze, he decides that since he’ll never see her again, it’s the perfect opportunity to reveal his feelings. However, when his new job falls through, he must beg his horrible boss (Amy Sedaris, Strangers with Candy) for his old job back and now must deal with the fallout of his declaration. Rounding out the cast of characters are Kevin’s wild sister Roxie (Jordan Hinson, Eureka), his best friend Brian (Matt Murray, Rookie Blue), and Audrey’s roommate Patti (Punam Patel).

ABC Family has made the first episode available to watch online/On Demand. From the ads, I was expecting this series to be more wild and crazy. While it does have these moments, it also takes time to explore the characters a little more and builds to a rather heartfelt conclusion that makes me anxious to see tonight’s second episode. The first episode kind of had a bit of an A to Z-type vibe (minus the narration). Will the show become more of a broad comedy or go for a slower romcom feel, or will it find some happy medium? I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season plays out.

Step into Kevin’s world tonight on ABC Family at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, MasterChef, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Impastor, Flipping Out, Suits, Mr. Robot, and Twinning.
