If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/18/11

Whew, what a week! It’s only Tuesday, but last night’s TV wore me out! There was SO much on! There’s not as many brand new shows on tonight, but there are still a ton, so let’s just jump into it. Be sure and let us know what you’re going to watch tonight!

Since Megan is doing my other favorite of tonight’s new shows, I chose NCIS. I love the spinoff, but I still adore the original, too. The cast is phenomenal, with fantastic chemistry and great storylines, from the personal to the professional. Mark Harmon is a natural born leader, and everyone on his team is believable and fun to watch. I enjoy it every time I watch, and I know tonight is going to be no different.

On tonight’s episode, a petty officer’s recruitment session at a college fair comes to a tragic end when he’s brutally murdered in a stairwell, prompting the NCIS team, accompanied by Dr. Mallard’s predecessor, to solve this mysterious murder. The amazing Bob Newhart is guest starring as Dr. Walter Magnus, Ducky’s predecessor.

If you watched the Golden Globes, then you saw how scrumptious LL Cool J looked when he presented. Well, if that wasn’t enough of a treat for you, you can watch the sexy boy tonight on NCIS:LA. All sexiness aside, (let’s be honest, with LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell, there’s a lot to go around), this show has some excellent story lines.

On tonight’s episode, the team looks for a hacker who stole Pentagon documents that were uploaded to a blog, before the person gets the decryption code to the wrong people.

See if the team can save the day, by tuning into CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: Los Angeles @ Clicker.

No Ordinary Family has successfully further catapulted the careers of Julie Benz, Michael Chiklis, Kay Panabaker, Autumn Reeser, Romany Malco and many others with its drama and storylines. This show consistently, week after week, delivers a new and interesting storyline that keeps the viewer deeply intrigued. This show is literally out of this world! If you want to watch a show that the entire family can tune in to, this would absolutely be the one.

Tonight, Jim’s secret is put in jeopardy when the police station gets taken hostage. Stephanie and Kelly become extremely suspicious of a human resources vice president (guest star Rebecca Mader). Joanne Kelly (Warehouse 13) also guest stars as Internal Affairs officer Rachel Jacobs.

If yesterday was madness, then today is insane. Especially in the final hour of primetime with The Good Wife on CBS, Lights Out on FX, Parenthood on NBC, Southland on TNT, and the return of White Collar on USA Network.

If this was last week, then I’d easily have picked The Good Wife, as it has become one of my most anticipated shows each week. If this was next week, then I’d be picking White Collar, cause it’s a great episode that shows how everyone met and provides some much needed back-story for the Neal and Kate relationship.

But it’s this week, so I’m going to have to pick the two-hour season/series finale of Life Unexpected. It won’t wrap things up like we’d hope to see one day down the road, but we will get to spend a couple more hours with this unusual family. I haven’t always agreed with some of the story decisions, but they have never failed to create a compelling hour of television. It always been very reminiscent of what made many of the old WB shows so great. And, I’ll never know how a show like Hellcats can draw a larger audience.

Life Unexpected plays tonight on The CW at 8:00/7:00c. Learn where to find episodes online of Life Unexpected @ Clicker.

    watching the series finally of LUX and all I can think is why do shows like gossip girl, 9021, hellcats, etc stay on the air but a good quality show like this gets axed?
