If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/18/12

Stay five feet from me. Don’t come any closer. I am so sick right now, it’s not even funny. Coughing, throat feels like I swallowed knives, etc etc. So I’m extra glad there’s good stuff on tonight. It gives me a chance to put my feet up and try to relax some. Keep reading to see what we think you should be watching.

Last week’s Law & Order: SVU was sad and kind of heartbreaking… Benson started to pressure a rape suspect into making a false confession, albeit not on purpose, but she was stopped before she was able to. Then that led to a previous suspect who claims his confession was coerced…and it turned out it had been. They eventually got the right guy (for the previous crimes AND the new one), but that led to Benson and her ADA boyfriend to call it quits when he was put in charge of a team that will be looking into old cases. I really enjoyed them together. She deserves to have someone special in her life, and I loved Harry Connick Jr. Ah well. heh

On tonight’s episode, “Valentine’s Day,” while video chatting with his wife (guest star Chloe Sevigny) on the way home from an international business trip, a Wall Street executive watches an intruder assault and abduct her. The kidnappers demand ransom, and Detectives Benson, Amaro, Rollins, and Tutuola are on the scene when the missing housewife arrives to pick up the money. She frantically tells the detectives about her ordeal, but Benson grows suspicious of her story. The SVU squad and Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak dig deeper to find out who the real victim is in this increasingly complicated case.

Check it out tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Hot in Cleveland, Happily Divorced, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, Suburgatory, Modern Family & Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/12

Wednesday already? This week is just flying by. Hope you are all enjoying this week in television that has been packed with lots of new episodes of our favorite shows. Last night was jammed pack, so it’s nice that tonight slows down a bit. Tonight, you should just kick back, grab the remote, and watch what we think you should – because we’re usually right!

Last week, 10 became 9 on American Idol when Erika Van Pelt got eliminated. I was really upset because I really enjoyed her. I think the judges should have saved her. Heejun is adorable, but he’s been so inconsistent lately, making it hard for me to continue to support him. It’s been a weird season so far, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be messy in the weeks to come, with America screwing up the votes.

On tonight’s episode, Stevie Nix will mentor the remaining 9 contestants, and we’ll see if America will get the vote right this week. 😉

To see the contestants throw down with the mic, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of American Idol @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Survivor and One Tree Hill.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/21/12

Last night, I saw the movie Project X, and let me say that it was both hilarious and terrifying. It was so funny in so many ways, but it was also a slight scary for the future of our youth. Although, if my daughter threw a party like that in the future, I’m pretty sure there would be a small piece of me that was incredibly proud of her ingenuity – mostly, I’d be furious. Enough about movies, though. Let’s see what’s on TV tonight to help you get your midweek relax on.

It’s never an dull night on American Idol. Okay, maybe there can be, but last week’s episode was filled with drama, thanks to Jermaine Jones. Then of course there was the amazing performance of “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Joshua that brought the whole place to it’s feet and gave me goosebumps. It amazes me that I only have one person this season so far that I really dislike – DeAndre (aka Side Show Bob). He’s just so incredibly annoying. Last week, Shannon’s attempt at “One Fine Day” (by Mariah Carey/Boyz II Men) led to her ultimate demise. Farewell.

Let’s hope tonight, the Top 10 bring us another awe inspiring moment as they take the stage to fight for your votes.

To see the contestants try to prove they are worthy, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of American Idol @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also watching Criminal Minds, Bent, One Tree Hill, , CSI, & Survivor.

Review/Recap – American Idol Top 11 – 3/14/12

Last night, only 11 contestants took the stage after the drama of Jermaine Jones being disqualified due to having outstanding warrants and not disclosing them. Why do these people think they can go on a national television show and not get ousted? Baffles me.

Moving on to last night, where the remaining contestants sang songs from the year they were born. Jump ahead to see my thoughts on their performances and feel free to share your own. Continue reading

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/14/12

Tonight, there’s so much great TV to choose from! Between last week’s stupid move on Survivor, two new shows starting up, Face Off coming to an end, and an all-new ABC comedy block, I emailed Jenny 3 times changing my pick for tonight! Read on to see what I finally settled on and what everyone else is recommending you tune in to tonight.

I think we’re all entitled to at least one of those cheesy, “reality” shows that is far from real. I have been a huge fan of Flipping Out ever since I first tuned in – primarily due to the funny “characters’ on the show. Tonight, Bravo kicks off a new series called Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis. Each week, our favorite Flipping Out trio – real-estate maven Jeff Lewis, his assistant Jenni Pulos, and housekeeper Zoila Chavez – will spend 5 days living in with their clients. They will help them renovate their homes, but also transform their personal lives.

Based on the premise, I am so excited to see this show and expect it to be just as hilarious and off the wall as Flipping Out. I can’t wait to see how perfectionist Jeff Lewis will deal with living with other families, outside of the comfort of his own home. Jeff seems a bit crazy himself, so it will be interesting to see what kind of personal advice he gives to others.

In tonight’s premiere, “Almost Perfect,” Jeff Lewis tries to renovate a master suite for a perfectionist, but construction blunders could derail the project.

See it tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching the Face Off season finale, Monster Man series premiere, Psych, Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Happy Endings, Whitney, and Are You There, Chelsea?.
