This is a crazy day for me (Jenny), so I’m going to jump right in. Everyone welcome back Jethro to this week’s Remote posts! Now let’s get to it!
Hello everyone, I’m Jethro Nededog, a writer/reporter at Zap2it. Thrilled to be joining the crew of TVIsMyPacifier.com for a second time on “If We Controlled Your Remote…” I watch all kinds of TV, but I have a soft spot for shows considered by some to be “guilty pleasures.” So, expect my choices this week to include some camp, some reality and soapy drama.
It’s one of my new favorite shows and I look forward to it all week. If you’re not watching Showtime’s new series, Shameless, I implore you to give it a try. In Episode 3, we found out that the Gallagher home belongs to their Aunt Ginger, who the kids had never met, but believed was in a nursing home. It turns out that she has been dead for years and dad, Frank (William H. Macy), had been cashing her disability payments. When the government began to get suspicious, the gang nabbed a senile old lady to act as Ginger. Everything worked out with the government, but younger sister, Debbie (Emma Kenney) grew attached to the woman, and it seems she isn’t taking her absence very well. In Episode 4, Debbie steals some kid to fill the void.

On next week’s new episode of Law & Order: SVU, on NBC at 9/8c, Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer) guest stars as a rape victim, Vicki, who is brought into the hospital initially claiming she has been attacked multiple times by the same man. Detectives Benson and Stabler are determined to help her, but she lives in such terror that she then denies she has been raped at all and refuses to submit to a rape kit. As Benson looks for a way to help, she is horrified to learn that there are police precincts and evidence labs across the country that never test their rape kits at all. The investigation soon leads her to Los Angeles where she meets Detective Rex Winters (guest star Skeet Ulrich, Jericho), who has information that could finally help Vicki get justice. This episode is the introduction of the new NBC drama, Law & Order: Los Angeles.
This is a special episode, focused on Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation. To read more about the foundation, as well as the questions and answers with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Law & Order: SVU Executive Producer Neal Baer, and Sarah Tofte from the Joyful Heart Foundation, jump with us!

TGIF! It’s been a long week and I am so glad it’s come to an end. 🙂 Let’s take a quick look at tonight’s news, and then get back to a relaxing weekend.
FOX is in talks to pick up a new comedy series with Jennifer Love Hewitt that is said to be similar to The Big Bang Theory but with girls. If it’s good I’m all for it, because #1 – we need more comedies as brilliant as The Big Bang Theory and #2 – I really enjoy Jennifer Love Hewitt. Until that series is officially picked up and airs, you can catch JLH on an episode of Law & Order : Special Victims Unit and an episode of Love Bites both airing on NBC. Source
