If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/4/17

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!

I was a big fan of Cash Cab back in the day (ya know, way back from 2005-2013. LOL), a game show that took place in a New York taxi minivan. Host Ben Bailey would pick up a fare, and on their drive to their destination, they would play a trivia game in order to win money. Like a lot of trivia game shows, the contestants could seek help – using pedestrians on the street and by calling friends or family. If they got three questions wrong, though, Ben would pull over and drop them off, regardless of how far they were from their destination.

The show is back tonight, along with host Ben Bailey. This season, some passengers will be joined by a guest celebrity who will help the passengers rack up the cash. The celebrity line-up includes Matthew Perry, Brooke Shields, Scott Bakula, Gilbert Gottfried, Dave Foley, Jeff Garlin, & Susie Essman. I can’t wait to find out how they’ve revamped the series and see if the show is as fun as it was before!

On tonight’s episode, “Celebrity Edition: Scott Bakula,” two rowdy brothers from Alabama test their luck in the cab; an unsuspecting couple are headed uptown when their ride is hijacked by celebrity Scott Bakula.

Check out the new season starting tonight on Discovery Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great Christmas Light Fight, Man With a Plan, Holiday Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, & Christmas Cookie Challenge.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/20/14

Looks like there’s another deep freeze headed towards my town this week, and while I love winter, I am so over it. So while the wind and snow beat at my window, I’m going to bunker down and watch some great TV. Let’s see what we’re all recommending.

Megan’s Choice #1

rickandmorty120smallI know it’s rare for me to suggest that you watch an animated show, but Rick and Morty is one that’s worth your time. It’s the combination of great characters and hilarious writing. To be honest, I’ve only seen a few episodes, and mostly thanks to my teenage son, but when I was asked to interview Justin Roiland (Co-Creator, Executive Producer, and the voice of both Rick and Morty), I got a chance to delve deeper into the show. What I found was a reason to giggle and escape reality. Every episode is its own individual story, and the series has little to no continuity, with the episodes being spins on classic movies/shows, tying back into the show’s original muse of Back to the Future and the legendary characters of Doc Brown and Marty McFly. Last week’s episode was called “M. Night Shyam-Aliens!,” and it really twisted the limits of hilarious, but dark. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be tuning in, even if you haven’t seen any episodes, because you won’t have missed a thing. I’m looking forward to some upcoming episodes based on Something Wicked This Way Comes.

On tonight’s episode, “Meseeks and Destroy,” take a trip through the most boring alternate universe these creators can imagine.

To get ready for tonight’s episode, check out my interview with the awesome Justin Roiland, and then tune in to Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) tonight at 10:30/9:30c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/12/13

As of today, I will now have a three-child household fulltime, as my awesome 13-year-old stepson is moving in with us. I’m not going to lie: the prospect of going from two fulltime kids to three is a little frightening, but at least he’s not in diapers. 🙂 Besides, I’m excited to have someone to watch Food Network with! Speaking of television, let’s see what’s on tonight.

Megan’s Choice

cmamusicfestivalsmallI really enjoy a good musical performance show, so I’m looking forward to CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock. Hosted by Little Big Town, it’s a night filled with some of country’s biggest stars, such as Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, and so many more. One of the things I love about the CMA shows are that country stars are always so friendly with everyone, and it’s really like watching a big party. It’s a perfect summer night concert in your living room.

On tonight’s special, we see highlights of the four-day event, featuring today’s hottest country music stars; Little Big Town hosts.

To watch your favorite country artists, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Teen Wolf, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Breaking Pointe, and Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls.

Friday is one of my favorite days of the week. Not because it’s the end of the work week, but because it’s a night of great television. There are so many wonderful shows to choose from to help you start your weekend right. You can go with the crime dramas on CBS, or take a walk on the dangerous side with Supernatural or Grimm—there’s never a wrong choice. Helping you decide what to watch is our job, so let’s discuss your options and make it easy.

Last week, I was so sad, because they postponed Blue Bloods for baseball. Now that the World Series is over, we are getting back to regularly scheduled programming. I need my weekly fix of the Reagan family to keep me happy. Week after week, they deliver drama and suspense that keep me glued to my television. A talented, attractive cast and weekly character growth make you love the show even more. If you haven’t yet given this show a chance, you’re missing out.

On tonight’s episode, “Black and Blue,” Frank deals with a political crisis after Jamie and Renzulli are injured by a church security team that refuses to let them enter a religious center in response to a 911 call.

To fall in love with the Reagan family as much as I have, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Blue Bloods @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/16/11

It’s Monday, and there is a HUGE pile of new episodes, including a ton of finales, on tonight! Speaking of finales, did you watch last night’s Survivor? I was so thrilled to see Rob win, not only the $1 million itself, but the Spring $100k, too. And can I just say… Wowzers, Grant? So HOT! lol Anyway, that was last night. What’s on tonight that’s worth watching? Check out our recommendations and find out! (And yes, you’re seeing that right. We have NINE choices for you tonight. With all the amazing TV on, what do you expect?!)

There are two nights I’ve been looking forward to for at least a month, ever since I started hearing tidbits of information from the season finales. Tonight, and Thursday, for the season finales of Castle and Bones. I seriously am not sure I’ve EVER been this excited about an episode as I am for these two finales. Tonight’s episode of Castle promises to be one of its most exciting shows ever in its three seasons. The episode promises to have a huge effect on the Beckett/Castle relationship, but in the end, will it be good or bad? I don’t know, and it’s killing me, I swear!

Tonight, Beckett’s investigation into her mother’s death is reactivated when a professional hitman with knowledge of the murder stages an escape from a hearing. Evidence leads to a deeper conspiracy, involving a mysterious figure and a shocking and deadly end.

See if we’ll get resolution to Beckett’s mother’s murder tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.
