If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/14/12

In 11 days, we will be crowded around a Christmas tree, exchanging gifts and Christmas cheer… Wait, only 11 days?!?! Where did the time go? At the end of the day, it’s not about the presents but about spending time with the ones we love, and what better way to do that than to curl up and watch some television on a Friday night? Let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

kitchennightmaressmallI don’t know why, but I never get sick of Kitchen Nightmares. I’m sure it’s because Gordon Ramsay continually amuses me, but it could also be that I never tire of seeing how silly these people are. Although I have to say, the more I watch this show, the less I enjoy eating in restaurants, because I’m always worried that the kitchen isn’t clean or they use old food. What can I say? I’m a product of my television watching. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Revisted No.1,” Chef Ramsay heads back to Cafe Hon, Chierello, & Leones to see if the owners kept up the changes that were made.

To see if any of the owners kept up their end of the bargain, tune into FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Kitchen Nightmares @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Take It All, Malibu Country, and Say Yes to the Dress.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/6/12

It’s Friday night, thank goodness. For a short week back (for most of those of us with kids in school or with jobs that had a long break over the holidays), this week seemed to stretch forever. Settle in, give us your remote control, and we’ll guide you the best way we can to your end of the week relaxation!

Megan & Jenny’s Choice #1

Megan: It’s been 4 years, 106 episodes, and now it’s time for Wizards of Waverly Place to come to an end. Selena Gomez isn’t a young teenager anymore, and it’s time for all these actors and actresses to move on to bigger and better things. I’ve enjoyed the journey, even though it’s supposed to be a “kid’s show.” The comedy was well presented, the family dynamics were entertaining, and it was always nothing less than entertaining. It’s been a interesting journey, and it all ends tonight in a fantastic spectacle.

Jenny: Ask my husband or son, and they’ll tell you I’m kind of addicted to some of the shows on Disney and Nickelodeon. iCarly, Good Luck, Charlie, and of course, Wizards of Waverly Place, which I’ve watched faithfully with my son since the beginning. I’m really sad it’s ending tonight, although I think I’m more sad that the last handful of episodes hasn’t been even more about them preparing for their final chance to become the family wizard. This is such a huge thing and it’s kind of been put to the wayside in the last good number of episodes. Still, I think it will be a fun finale, and Josh & I will be glued to the TV!

On tonight’s episode, “Who Will Be the Family Wizard,” Justin, Alex, and Max Russo compete in a sudden and ultimate competition to determine which one of the three siblings will be entitled to keep their wizardly powers, as well as the responsibilities attached to the title of “family wizard.” Bridgit Mendler & Gregg Sulkin return tonight as Justin’s vampire girlfriend Juliet Van Heusen and Alex’s werewolf boyfriend Mason.

See all the cuteness tonight in an hour-long episode on Disney Channel at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Wizards of Waverly Place @ Clicker.
