If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/16/13

This has been a super busy week for TV news, with all the networks announcing their new fall shows and schedules. While there’s a bunch of stuff that looks great, there’s also quite a few other new shows that I can’t believe they thought were better than the stuff they decided not to renew. And speaking of things ending—there are at least eight shows having season/series finales tonight, so here’s what we recommend you check out tonight…

theoffice516smallAfter 9 seasons, the US version of The Office finally comes to an end. It’s pretty amazing that the show has lasted this long, seing as the original UK show only ran for a total of 15 episodes! I loved last week’s episode—it was a return to that great mix of fun and heartwarming drama of the early years of the show. Jim assured Pam that he didn’t regret his choice of staying with her in Scranton, Dwight proposed to Angela, and Angela revealed that Dwight was actually the father of her baby.

Tonight, it all comes to an end with Dwight and Angela’s wedding and a look at the characters’ lives once the documentary has aired. So who will return—and will Michael Scott make an appearance? I would think you couldn’t have a finale of this show without having him back (despite the producers saying he wouldn’t be)! I can’t wait to see how it all comes to a close on tonight’s super-sized 75-minute episode. Plus, I’m also really looking forward to re-living the past nine years with the hour-long retrospective special that airs before the finale.

Tonight’s special, “The Office Retrospective,” features interviews with the show’s writers, producers, and actors, including John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling, and Paul Lieberstein. Also: a look inside the writers’ room; actor auditions; and favorite moments.

Then, on “Finale,” past and present staffers gather for a wedding and their closing interview sessions in the series finale. Appearing: Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Joan Cusack, Ed Begley Jr., Rachael Harris, Dakota Johnson, Andy Buckley, and Malcolm Barrett.

Tonight’s special starts at 8/7c on NBC, followed by the 75-minute series finale at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Hannibal, Giving You the Business, Men at Work, and Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/29/12

I hope that everyone (or at least the US folks) had a good holiday last week and that your wallets have survived Black Friday/Cyber Monday. It frightens me when I think that Christmas is just over three weeks away and I still have lots of gifts to buy! However, in TV-land you wouldn’t know it, as we haven’t hit that holiday lull just yet—tonight’s TV lineup is still quite packed. Read on to see what we recommend you check out tonight.

The Office was closed last week for Thanksgiving, but tonight, it’s back for a new episode. Last time, the Yellow Pages were looking for a new paper supplier, and when the folks at Dunder Mifflin learned that the client was a woman, the females in the office banded to help Dwight learn to better deal with the fairer sex. However, when Dwight arrived at the meeting, he discovered it was all a ruse by Jan, who was trying to get back at David Wallace. Meanwhile, Angela suspected the senator was cheating on her; and Jim’s business partners found it difficult to work around his remote participation.

I’m surprised at how much I’ve been enjoying this final season of The Office. I like that they are finding ways to bring back old characters so we can see them one last time. Also, the whole storyline of Angela taking Oscar with her to find the “other woman,” only to discover “she” is actually Oscar, was great. I can’t wait to see how that all plays out tonight. Also, it seems like Jim is going to have to make a decision soon and leave Dunder Mifflin or else his partners are going to kick him out of his side venture.

On tonight’s episode, “The Target,” Angela discovers the harsh truth about her husband’s affair with Oscar, so she reaches out to Dwight for help. Meanwhile, Jim requests a favor from Stanley and Phyllis; Pam begins painting a mural in the warehouse; and Pete creates a tower made out of complaint cards.

See if you enjoy the final season as much as I am tonight on NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Office @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Last Resort, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, Up All Night, Parks and Recreation, Glee, The League, and Reality Show.

Last week on NY Ink, Jessica made waves in the shop when she showed off some tattoos that she’d been doing on the side. Meanwhile, Tim dragged Ami out of the shop for some surf, sand, and sun bonding time!

Tonight, on “Now or Never,” Ami faces a truly tough dilemma concerning Jessica when he finds out that she’s been working out of her house. Megan moves into her new place, but it seems like her boyfriend could change that situation.

The challenge the designers faced last week on Project Runway Allstars was to create a tasteful outfit that was inspired by the color and flavor of various gelatos. Miranda Kerr was a guest judge, and the winning look was something she was going to wear to an industry event. Kara and Mondo struggled, but the winning design was Michael’s divine creation and April was sent packing.

On an all new episode, “Clothes Off Your Back,” the contestants must ask strangers on the street for their clothing, which they will use to design a whole new outfit.

Make it work tonight at 9/8c on Lifetime! Learn where to find episodes online of Project Runway All Stars @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/17/11

Enjoy it while it lasts. Tonight’s TV lineup will be banished next week due to the holidays. So make sure you stuff yourself full of fresh comedy and drama tonight and indulge in your favorite shows. Holiday hiatuses are around the corner, and you’re going to want to savor every moment of your favorite shows while they’re new and fresh. Let yourself escape and unwind after a long work week by parking yourself on the couch and warming yourself by the light of the TV!

Last week on Parks and Recreation, Leslie and Ben made a national mockery out of themselves. Okay, it was just a model UN, but they still crashed and burned hardcore. Leslie got caught up in her feelings for Ben and the possibility he could be into someone else that she completely ran amuck and ruined a special event for some high schoolers. Let’s hope that Leslie can learn that she either has to move on from Ben, or she has to embrace her feelings and let them have a go at a real relationship – even if it may effect her candidacy.

Tonight, Leslie uses her new tourist attraction in order to spend time with Ben. Ron and April encourage Andy to further his education, while Chris assigns a logo redesign to Tom and Jerry.

Tune in at 8:30/7:30c for an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.
