If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/16/15

rizzoliisles616smallI’m so happy that Rizzoli & Isles is back tonight with its season premiere! Last season was an emotional one. Jane was pregnant but lost the baby when she was hurt protecting a teenage girl during a case. Frost was killed in a car crash (Sadly, Lee Thompson Young committed suicide about midway through season 4 airings.), leaving the team and especially Jane to grieve. Maura dealt with a lot of family issues, including once again seeing her father, Paddy. Korsak bought the bar the group always went to, and then Angela got a job as manager – and was a natural at it. Hopefully this season will be just as exciting but a little less heartbreaking!

On tonight’s episode, “The Platform,” when it appears one of their own shot an unarmed man on a busy Boston subway platform, the team must fight to find the real killer while clearing the detective’s name. But with Internal Affairs breathing down their necks, it becomes clear that the circumstances surrounding this shooting are anything but clear.

To see who’s under scrutiny, tune in to TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Chrisley Knows Best, Junk Food Flip, The Little Couple, Stitchers, Chopped, Clipped, Royal Pains, & I Can Do That.

clipped616smallTonight is the series premiere of the new TBS comedy, Clipped, which finds George Wendt returning to TV for another Boston-based sitcom. After Buzzy (Wendt) sells his hair salon to young entrepreneur Ben (Ryan Pinkston), he continues to work at the shop that bears his name. When he’s not cutting hair or gossiping, Buzzy serves as mentor to the younger employees – all of whom had gone to high school with new owner Ben. The young stylists include Danni (Ashley Tisdale) and A.J. (Mike Castle), who have a bit of a secret past, lonely Mo (Matt Cook), who is constantly looking for love from his coworkers and boss, and sassy Charmaine (Diona Reasonover), who tells it like it is. And rounding out the gang is receptionist Joy (Lauren Lapkus).

While I’m not sure if I’m ready for all of the heavy Boston accents and stereotypes, I am looking forward to checking out more of this show. I enjoyed tonight’s premiere, the overall premise sounds like it could be a lot of fun – and I haven’t really seen a lot of sitcoms set in a barber shop. It can be hit or miss with these TBS sitcoms, but this one looks like it may be a keeper for me.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a sports agent calls aspiring baseball player A.J. Salern, who thinks he’s found his big break and that his barber days are behind him, in the series premiere of this workplace comedy centering on workers at a Massachusetts barbershop.

See if this new comedy makes you laugh tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording I Can Do That, Tyrant, Proof, Chrisley Knows Best, and Royal Pains.

proof616smallTonight is the series premiere of Proof, TNT’s newest hour-long drama that follows Dr. Carolyn Tyler (Jennifer Beal) as she tries to prove that the afterlife exists. At first I was highly skeptical of this premise, but after a bit, it’s grown on me. It’s a little more complex than just examining if the afterlife exists, but she is asked by a dying billionaire named Ivan (Matthew Modine) to explore this and more. There will be a weekly case involving someone who has experienced a near-death experience, which if done right could be both creepy and inspiring. I’ve always loved Beals, so I’m excited to see how she does in this, but I have a feeling if TNT can keep the script flowing, she may have a hit.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Carolyn Tyler is hired by a terminally ill billionaire to investigate if the after-life exists.

To visit this unexplored topic with Carolyn, tune in to TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chopped, America’s Got Talent, Pretty Little Liars, and Stitchers.
