Wisdom of the Crowd has really grown on me, and it has a lot to do with the writing. Last week the FBI came to investigate Sophe, and they said it was due to the virus that shut down the site, but it turned out the virus was sent by the NSA. The FBI was actually working with the NSA, and they were there to find out who the leak was that helped Tanner on the case a couple weeks ago concerning the online game that encouraged kids to kill themselves. Tanner figured out what was going on and they backed off, but I’m sure this won’t be the end of them trying to get to Sophe.

On tonight’s episode, “Proof of Concept,” Tanner is offered new evidence in Mia’s case if Sophe can prove someone is innocent of murder. Also, Tanner and Sara begin depositions with AllSourcer for the rights to Sara’s work and Sophe’s code.

To find out if they can get the evidence about Mia, tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Guy’s Big Project.

murderinthefirst615smallI have to admit that I didn’t watch any of the first season of Murder in the First, even though I love Taye Diggs. I’m not a huge fan of the concept of a single case lasting all season. But when I read the description of this season’s case, I thought I might give it a shot, so I watched last week’s premiere, and I have to say…I loved it. I love the cast – Taye Diggs, Kathleen Robertson, and Ian Anthony Dale, especially. And the case… Heart-stoppingly frightening. Two high school boys shooting up a bus full of students and anyone who got in their way? Scary as hell for a mom of a 17-year-old. 🙁 One of the boys was shot but he’s now under guard in the hospital, and police all over the city are now searching like crazy for the other, who is bat-shit crazy.

On tonight’s episode, “Schizofrenzy,” tensions mount as the manhunt for the missing shooter proves to be more difficult than expected. Terry is promoted to acting Lieutenant, which he soon discovers comes with responsibilities more taxing than he anticipated.

To see what responsibilities Terry faces and how the manhunt goes, tune in to TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Major Crimes, Guilty Pleasures, & Top 5 Restaurants.

unreal61smallTonight, Lifetime premieres its new scripted series UnREAL, which follows the behind-the-scenes drama of a fictitious Bachelor-like reality show called Everlasting, where a group of woman compete to win the heart of handsome, rich Brit Adam Cromwell (Freddie Stroma, Pitch Perfect). The series stars Shiri Appleby (Roswell, Life Unexpected) as Rachel Goldberg, a young producer who had a meltdown the prior season, but her amazing ability to manipulate the contestants has series creator Chet (Craig Bierko, Cinderella Man) welcoming her back. And to make things more awkward for her, Rachel’s ex, Jeremy (Josh Kelly, One Life to Live), is a cameraman for the show, and his new fiancée is on-set makeup artist Lizzie (Siobhan Williams, Black Box). The executive producer of Everlasting, Quinn King (Constance Zimmer, Entourage), is ruthless and demands that her staff does anything and everything to create drama, make the contestants fill their assigned character roles and build the show’s narrative.

I’ve seen the first three episodes, and I would have watched more had they been available — I was instantly fascinated, entertained, and completely sucked in. I have never seen an episode of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but I’ve seen enough reality TV to be able to really relate to what’s going on. UnREAL is a very dark, shocking series — it is absolutely despicable some of the things these producers do to manipulate the contestants and build the desired narrative! The show will have you questioning just how real the drama is on your favorite “reality” shows and wondering what is really going on just outside of the camera’s view. I highly recommend checking this show out tonight.

On tonight’s premiere, “Return,” a producer, Rachel Goldberg, works to manipulate relationships on a dating show in order to film outrageous footage as the series begins.

Don’t miss the fun premiere tonight on Lifetime at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Whispers, The Island, Turn, and Devious Maids.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/14/14

Welcome to a new week for TV. There are a ton of finales this week because we’re gearing up to the new fall season—which actually begins this week with a few shows. As for tonight, we’re here to give you our recommendations out of the myriad of choices, so check it out!

unforgettable914smallTonight is two new episodes of Unforgettable, which includes the season finale. I’m really very sad about that because I love this show. It hasn’t been renewed yet, but I have my fingers crossed that it’ll be back next summer! Last week, a woman who worked for a famous matchmaker was killed. But they kept uncovering secrets, which led to more suspects and motives. My favorite part was seeing Carrie use her memory to talk to the men at the matchmaker’s place, convincing them one by one that they knew her and getting them to leave to “meet her” somewhere, until the owner finally agreed to give them the info they were searching for.

I’d love to see Carrie & Al get together—or at least share a kiss!—before the end of the season, but we’re down to the last chance, and I’m not sure it’s going to happen. She’s been seeing the Secret Service guy, and while he isn’t a bad guy, I’m a huge Al & Carrie shipper, darnit! So I’ve got my fingers crossed, but I’m not holding my breath…

Finally, CBS is upping the start times for their Sunday night shows by 30 minutes, which means hopefully we won’t have to wait—or at least as long—because of football overruns, so pay attention to the time below!

On tonight’s first episode, “Moving On,” Carrie and Al delve into the disturbing – and dangerous – world of celebrity obsession when a television star is found murdered in his dressing room. Then on the season finale, “DOA,” Carrie is unable to utilize her perfect memory when an assassin doses her with a deadly poison that attacks her brain, leaving Al on a desperate hunt for the antidote.

See how the season ends and if we get some Carrie & Al coupledom tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rachael vs Guy: Kids Cook-Off, The Great Food Truck Race, Cutthroat Kitchen, Hungry Investors, & Pressure Cooker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/1/14

Tomorrow, my kids head back to school, and I’m super excited about it because it also means that the new TV season is just around the corner. Don’t get me wrong… Summer has brought us lots of entertainment, but I am beyond ready for the new season of my favorite shows. Aren’t you? Let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to keep us entertained while I eagerly await the new fall season.

runningwildsmallI have been really loving this season of Running Wild with Bear Grylls because the celebrities are super amusing in the wild. My favorite episode was actually the one with Channing Tatum, and it wasn’t because of his incredible sexy good looks, but because of his amusing attitude through the whole episode. The scene eating the snake was disgusting but very funny, and I have a newfound respect for Channing. Perhaps that’s what is the most intriguing about this show, the ability to see celebrities in a new light.

On tonight’s episode, “Tamron Hall,” world-renowned survivalist Bear Grylls spends two days in the remote Utah desert with Tamron Hall (The Today Show), getting to know the depths of her personal tragedies and triumphs of her life, while challenging her along the way. Hall makes small talk with an unlikely friend in the wild and later struggles when she finds him on her dinner plate.

To see how Tamron does, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef, Hotel Hell, American Ninja Warrior, Teen Wolf, The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, and Houdini.
