If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/14/16

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

I’m going to continue the holiday-themed-episode trend today with the Christmas/Hanukkah episode of The Goldbergs. The thing I love most about this show is the feeling of nostalgia I get whenever I watch it. Whether it be the most popular boy band of the decade, a hit TV show, or…like last week…a popular sports team/entertainment like the Harlem Globetrotters. I never got to go to a game myself, but we watched them on TV a couple of times, and they’re just plain fun to watch, as Murray found out when he and Adam went to see them play. Speaking of Murray… He turned 50, and Beverly threw him a not-so-surprise party, but he ended up missing it because he fell asleep and no one noticed after Erica threw all the coats from the guests on top of him on the bed. I swear, that’s going to be my husband if I do that in a few years! LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Han Ukkah Solo,” after finding out there is only going to be one Hanukkah song in the Holiday Pageant, Beverly convinces Erica to create the perfect song to bring some excitement to the holiday. Erica sees her shot to break into the music business while Barry does his best to prove he too can be a hit maker with music. Meanwhile, Adam’s childlike wonder with movies and entertainment is called into question when things he loved as a child aren’t as good as he remembers. [Note from Jenny: Just wait till he’s in his 30s and starts looking back! LOL]

See if everything works out for Erica or Barry tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids Sweets Showdown, Speechless, Brothers Take New Orleans, Cooks vs Cons, Modern Family, & black-ish.

I was tempted to repeat my pick from yesterday and go for another 2-hour holiday-themed ABC comedy block. However, instead I’ll recommend the biannual three-hour Survivor finale/reunion. This Millennials vs. Gen X season has been really interesting and filled with lots of surprising twists and turns. Last week we got two tribal councils. First, Jay won immunity and Will went home, with David getting the rest of the votes. Adam helped Ken win the second immunity challenge. At the vote, Jay got worried and used his idol, but it was a waste, as he only received one vote while David got 2 and Sunday got 3. Now we are down to the final six, and there’s an even split from the original teams – Millennials Adam, Hannah, and Jay, and Gen-Xers Bret, Ken, and David. Who will be eliminated next, who will be the final three, and will Ken last long enough to see what his mystery Legacy advantage is?!

On the finale, “I’m Going for a Million Bucks,” season 33 concludes with the final three castaways being questioned by the jury, who then vote for the winner. Then, in the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Reunion, the winner is announced as the castaways reunite to discuss the season.

Find out who takes home the million-dollar prize and title of Sole Survivor tonight on CBS starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Empire, Star, Incorporated, and Younger.

Megan’s Choice

Tonight is the series premiere of Star, where a young girl, Star, forms a musical group with her sister and best friend. The trio then heads to Atlanta with the dream of being famous and learn the hard way that dreams aren’t as easy to reach as they seem.

I’m interested to see yet another drama featuring music on FOX and wondering if it will do well on the heels of the very successful show, Empire. One thing this new show has going for it is the amazing Queen Latifah. She is incredible at everything she does, and her star power may be enough to get this freshman drama the initial audience it needs. Also starring is cutie Benjamin Bratt, who plays a down-on-his-luck talent agent looking to revitalize his career. Between the two of them, they have the draw to bring in a slightly older audience that the younger actors (all newcomers) don’t.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a tough-as-nails young woman who came up in the foster care system tracks down her sister, Simone, and her Instagram bestie, Alexandra, and together, the trio journeys to Atlanta with the hope of becoming music superstars. Lenny Kravitz guest stars.

To see if this new show can win your heart tonight, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Incorporated and Cooks vs Cons.
