If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/16/14

Oh my gosh. I think Colin Mochrie may be the funniest man on TV. We watched the Colin & Brad: Two Man Group special on Saturday night while we were eating dinner. I took a drink at an unfortunate spot and literally did a spit take all over the table and beyond at a joke about asthmatic fish. It went up my nose and everything. Kind of awesome. LOL Anyway, nothing that funny on tonight, but we do have a few shows we’re recommending, so check them out. 🙂

choppedsmallRight now, Chopped is running their Tournament of Stars. Last week featured sports stars Greg Louganis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee (the actual JJK, not the character on The Neighbors 😉 ), Charles Oakley, & Brandi Chastain. Jackie went home first, then Charles, leaving Greg and Brandi in the dessert round. Greg made ginger ice cream, while Brandi made ice box cake, and she took home the win to send her into the next round of the tournament. This week’s chefs feature four great Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off contestants, and since I’ve watched every episode of that, I’m very excited!

On tonight’s episode, “Rachael vs. Guy,” Coolio, Lou Diamond Phillips, Penn Jillette, and Carnie Wilson have to deal with beef tongue and microwaveable chocolate cake in the appetizer round, leftover slices of pizza in the entree round, and chocolate bars and banana chips in the dessert round.

Find out who goes home the winner tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Buy This Restaurant, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Food Court Wars, Believe, Resurrection, Catch a Contractor, Crisis, Cutthroat Kitchen, & The Mentalist.

tarsmallThis season of The Amazing Race has been pretty eventful so far, and I don’t see it letting up anytime soon. I think it’s due to the fact that these teams are here for their second or third time, so they’re old professionals at dealing with the ups and downs now. Last week’s challenge that involved building a raft and going down a river was incredibly intense, and I have to admit that I may not have been as calm as a couple of teams were as their rafts broke apart. I’m surprised that Rachel and Brendan aren’t fighting nearly as much as last time, and they aren’t even one tenth as annoying—maybe it’s true that some people just balance each other out. The cowboys are still my favorite, and they continue to put in solid finishes week after week. I really hope they win this time.

On tonight’s episode, “Smarter, Not Harder,” one racer pours blood and tears into an exhausting Roadblock, and another racer suffers a meltdown during an extremely difficult Detour.

To see which one of the racers loses their marbles tonight, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Believe, Crisis, Once Upon a Time, Cutthroat Kitchen, Chopped, The Voice, and Food Court Wars.

crisis316smallTonight, NBC premieres the new thriller, Crisis. A vengeful mastermind takes the children of Washington D.C.’s most elite and powerful hostage in order to blackmail these CEOs, international diplomats, political power players, and even the President of the United States into doing what he wants. What is this man’s ultimate agenda, and if the parents play along, will he really return their children? Can these parents who are used to being the ones in charge put aside their pride and differences and let the FBI do their work? And what about the teenagers being held hostage—what if they try to handle the situation on their own?

This was one of my favorite pilots I watched last summer, and I am so excited to finally see it on the primetime schedule. Tonight’s episode is a roller-coaster ride, with lots of twists and surprises. The series stars Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), Dermot Mulroney (New Girl), Lance Gross (House of Payne), Rachael Taylor (666 Park Avenue), James Lafferty (One Tree Hill), Max Martini (The Unit), Halston Sage (How to Rock), Stevie Lynn Jones (Runaways), Max Schneider (How to Rock), Michael Beach (Insidious: Chapter 2), and Joshua Erenberg (Suburgatory).

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” high school students and their chaperones are kidnapped when their bus is ambushed on a rural road.

See how the action starts tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, The Mentalist, Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Believe, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Chopped, Cutthroat Kitchen, The Walking Dead, Shameless, and Episodes.
