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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Showtime kicks off the new comedy series White Famous, which centers around the exploits of rising black comedian Floyd Mooney (Jay Pharoah, SNL) as he deals with career and relationship issues. Floyd is still in love with ex/baby mama Sadie (Cleopatra Coleman, The Last Man on Earth), and the two still hook up on occasion. Floyd also has a great relationship with son Trevor (Lonnie Chavis) and is an active and present father to him. However, Floyd now lives with best friend Ron Balls (Jacob Ming Trent, Feed the Beast), who often serves as his voice of reason. Meanwhile, Floyd’s ambitious manager Malcolm (Utkarsh Ambudkar, The Mindy Project) is constantly looking for the next big opportunity to help his client to become “white famous” – so famous that he transcends color.

The series has a nice blend of humor and interesting character drama. The pilot does a great job of introducing the characters and relationships and has some really fun moments. Jay Pharoah was always great at doing impressions on SNL, and they’ve found an organic way to work his comedy and impressions into the show. Plus, if the premiere is any indication, this series is going to have a great supporting cast – tonight’s 1-hour premiere features Stephen Tobolowsky and Jamie Foxx. The main criticism I have of the show is its excessive language – there are so many F-bombs dropped in this first hour!

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” a racially-charged encounter with a film producer goes viral, presenting an opportunity to a young comic, if he is willing to bend his principles. Then, in “Heat,” Malcolm pushes Floyd to commit to his next project; Trevor tours an expensive private school; Sadie comes clean about a relationship.

Don’t miss the premiere of the latest TV comedy tonight on Showtime at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Ten Days in the Valley, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Fear the Walking Dead, Good Behavior, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/13/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight The CW sees the return of musical comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. As the second season came to a close, Rebecca and Josh were preparing for their wedding, though it was Rebecca who was doing most of the planning. Rebecca’s father returned, but instead of giving her the nod of approval she always yearned for, he was just there to ask for money. Meanwhile, Josh started to have doubts and ultimately decided to call off the wedding. He then made the extreme choice to become a priest. Rebecca, distraught from this news, was about to jump off a cliff when Paula talked her down. Now the only thing on Rebecca’s mind is getting revenge on Josh Chan.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can be soapy, campy, and over-the-top, but that’s what makes it so much fun – along with the hilarious musical numbers in each episode. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s premiere to see what Rebecca has in store for her revenge plan. Will Josh really become a priest? Will Rebecca finally move on and find someone else to obsess about? What other crazy situations will these people get up to? And what kind of extremely inappropriate song topics/lyrics can we look forward to this season?

On tonight’s premiere, “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend Wants Revenge,” Rebecca plots revenge against Josh after he abandoned her at the altar. Meanwhile, White Josh and Darryl work on some problems; and Paula and Scott confront some unusual issues in their marriage.

Catch up with Rebecca and her friends tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Inhumans, Jane the Virgin, Room 104, and Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.
