If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/9/11

Wednesday means that the week is in full swing, but at the same time it also means that we’re in the home stretch! This week has been nonstop new episodes of your favorite shows, and premieres of some that may even be your new favorite, and today is no different. Wednesday night TV is sure to cure your midweek blues with tons of great choices to take your cares away!

The long awaited midseason show premieres are here, and they are bringing on the funny starting with ABC’s new show Mr. Sunshine. Matthew Perry (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Friends) and Allison Janney (The West Wing) headline this charming show about a guy named Ben Donovan (Perry), who is the general manager of the Sunshine Center. Every night, Ben is forced to navigate demands, mishaps, and many employee screw ups in order to put on a show for 18,000 screaming people. Janney plays Crystal, Ben’s boss and the arena owner, who is very erratic and seemingly off her rocker. Andrea Anders (Better Off Ted, The Class) stars as Alice, the cutie tomboy marketing director at the arena, who just so happens to be Ben’s friend with benefits. Also along for the ride is Alonzo (James Lesure, Las Vegas), who is a former basketball player who is ruggedly handsome and unbelievably happy. Heather is Ben’s sweet and attractive assistant who fits right in with these merry misfits as she’s got a very colorful background. Rounding things out is Crystal’s son, Roman, who is the arena’s newest, and highly dimwitted, employee.

The pilot episode airs tonight, where we find Ben spending his 40th birthday trying to get rid of a hockey rink that won’t melt, looking for an elephant that becomes lost in the building, and trying to fix a PR nightmare. Meanwhile, Alice decides to end her “casual” relationship with Ben.

Try this new show on for size tonight at 9:30/8:30c on ABC. Learn where to find episodes online of Mr. Sunshine @ Clicker.

I’m so excited for an all new night of television tonight, and also a little over the moon because my sister and her family are arriving today for a visit. I haven’t seen them in a year so I’m super anxious. 🙂 Okay, enough about my personal life, let’s look at what I think you should watch tonight.

It’s been a busy season for Human Target, and it’s been a fabulous one, at that. The addition of the female characters has been brilliant for the show, and has made it even hotter than it was before. The kiss last week between Chance and Ilsa was fiery and delicious. 🙂

On tonight’s season 2 finale, Chance’s investigation into Ilsa’s late husband’s past uncovers a web of deception and lies that may tear the team part forever.

Tune into FOX at 9/8c to see how the team deals with the uproar and see if Ilsa and Chance have any conclusion to their love connection. Learn where to find episodes online of Human Target @ Clicker.

Lots on again for me tonight, but I gotta go with Criminal Minds as my pick. We’re gearing up towards the end of Paget Brewster on the show, and I’m going to be sad to see Prentiss go! 🙁

On tonight’s episode, the BAU team travels to Los Angeles, where they investigate some unusual murders throughout the city; more of Prentiss’ mysterious past comes to light. Guest starring tonight are Brad William Henke (Lost, Dexter) as taxi driver, Steve; Matthew Glave (ER, Army Wives) as Detective Bailey, who assists the investigation; Stacey Oristano (Friday Night Lights) as missing woman Anisa Gold; and Timothy V. Murphy (24) as Ian Doyle, a person from Prentiss’ past.

Don’t miss this great episode tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

After far too many months of no Raylan Givens on the air, Justified brings Timothy Olyphant back into our lives tonight with the season two premiere. Look for Raylan to still be dealing with Boyd, while also facing a new hassle from the matriarch of a family that has feuded with the Givens clan for years.

On tonight’s episode, when a convicted sex offender flees from law enforcement, Raylan follows the clues in hopes of hunting down the fugitive before the man can strike again, but he faces an unforeseen obstacle upon encountering a ruthless local crime family.

Don’t miss the season premiere tonight on FX at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Justified @ Clicker.
