If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/16/11

It’s Monday, and there is a HUGE pile of new episodes, including a ton of finales, on tonight! Speaking of finales, did you watch last night’s Survivor? I was so thrilled to see Rob win, not only the $1 million itself, but the Spring $100k, too. And can I just say… Wowzers, Grant? So HOT! lol Anyway, that was last night. What’s on tonight that’s worth watching? Check out our recommendations and find out! (And yes, you’re seeing that right. We have NINE choices for you tonight. With all the amazing TV on, what do you expect?!)

There are two nights I’ve been looking forward to for at least a month, ever since I started hearing tidbits of information from the season finales. Tonight, and Thursday, for the season finales of Castle and Bones. I seriously am not sure I’ve EVER been this excited about an episode as I am for these two finales. Tonight’s episode of Castle promises to be one of its most exciting shows ever in its three seasons. The episode promises to have a huge effect on the Beckett/Castle relationship, but in the end, will it be good or bad? I don’t know, and it’s killing me, I swear!

Tonight, Beckett’s investigation into her mother’s death is reactivated when a professional hitman with knowledge of the murder stages an escape from a hearing. Evidence leads to a deeper conspiracy, involving a mysterious figure and a shocking and deadly end.

See if we’ll get resolution to Beckett’s mother’s murder tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

Tonight is the season finale of How I Met Your Mother. We already know that we have yet to meet Ted’s future wife, and it has been hinted that she will have a little bit more about her revealed in tonight’s episode. I’d say it’s still worth tuning in to watch, even if it is just to get that tiny bit of scoop that could possibly lead you to figuring out something towards the identity of Ted’s other half.

In tonight’s episode, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robyn (Colby Smulders) bond, while attempting to intervene in Ted’s (Josh Radnor) love life. With all this time spent together working towards a greater cause, could there still be a spark between Robyn and Barney? Neither of them think Ted getting back with Zoe (guest Jennifer Morrison) is a good idea, and that might be just the cause that draws them back together. While Barney and Robyn scheme, Marshall (Jason Seigel) is feeding into a fear that he might be getting an onslaught of food poisoning. (Writer’s note: I’ve had it. NOT fun.) In the meantime, Ted is attending a wedding, where he supposedly runs into his future wife. Doesn’t sound like it’s Zoe to me!

Tune in at 8/7c on CBS to catch a hint at the mother! Learn where to find episodes online of How I Met Your Mother @ Clicker.

This season of The Secret Life of the American Teenager has not disappointed fans one bit. With the addition of Beverley Mitchell as the new counselor and relationships being amplified, it’s never a dull moment for viewers or the characters. Ben and Adrian are dealing with the impending birth of their daughter, and Amy and Ricky are moving their relationship along in a big way. It’s incredible how these characters have grown in such a short amount of time, and if they think these choices are adult, they’re going to have more to deal with when graduation eventually rolls around. They say high school is the best time of your life, but I think these teenagers would beg to differ.

Tonight, Ben tries to defend Adrian, and in doing so, he hurts his friendship with Amy.

There was a blood bath this season for cancellations. So far, ABC has cancelled 7, NBC dropped 6, FOX killed 7 as well (although 1…hopefully maybe they’ll change their minds!), and the CW has yet to announce, but they will most likely cancel 1 or 2. Finally, CBS… They have officially cancelled 3 shows so far (although there are several more that will likely be announced as gone anytime), including one of my favorite new comedies this year, Mad Love. This little show is so quirky and endearing, and it makes me very, very sad to say that tonight is the series finale. I really have fallen in love with it, and will miss it a ton when it’s gone. Can someone PLEASE get Tyler Labine a new show STAT? Love him! He has fantastic chemistry with Judy Greer, and their relationship is the thing I’ll miss most about this show.

On tonight’s series finale, Kate’s ex-boyfriend reveals some shocking information that could put her relationship with Ben in jeopardy, and they must decide to move forward or take a step back. Connie & Larry’s fake date suddenly takes a very real turn.

If you’re a fan of Mad Love, don’t miss the last episode tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Mad Love @ Clicker.

Hope everyone’s Monday is going well. Normally, I like to kick back and take the edge off the beginning of the week by watching No Reservations, but this week’s show is a repeat. Instead, I’m going to recommend you tune in and see what the Teutuls of Orange County, New York are up to. The second part of this season of American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior has picked up with Junior’s shop showing signs of life, while Senior is still reluctant to attempt any reconciliation with his estranged sons.

Last week’s episode had the courts making a critical decision in Junior’s favor, leading Senior to make a controversial settlement offer in this week episode. When a sudden tragedy strikes a close companion of Senior, though, things take a turn for the unexpected.

A new episode of American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior airs on Discovery tonight at 9/8c. Let me know what you think of the episodes in the comments – especially on how the events of this episode may change the feud between the Teutuls.

My third pick tonight is the season finale (hopefully only season! it’s got a good shot at renewal!) of Mike & Molly on CBS. When I first started watching this show, I was worried it would be all about Mike and Molly being very overweight. And sure, there is a lot of that…a lot of fat jokes, a lot of talk about watching what they eat, etc. But really, the show grew on me so quickly, it was hard not to fall in love with it. Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy are so damn likeable as the title characters, but to me, the supporting cast is a HUGE part of why this show has become one of my favorites. Molly’s family, consisting of mother Joyce (Swoosie Kurtz), sister Victoria (Katy Mixon), and even Joyce’s boyfriend Vince (Louis Mustillo), are always entertaining. They are completely insane, but they love Molly and it shows. Mike’s mother Peggy (Rondi Reed) is… absolutely hysterical, and just someone you can be glad isn’t your mother-in-law. LOL Mike’s cop-partner Carl (Reno Wilson) and their friend/waiter at the diner they always go to, Samuel (Nyambi Nyambi), are fantastic editions, too. All in all, it’s just a damn cute show.

On tonight’s season (*crossing fingers*) finale, a question that Mike has been fearing finally comes up in conversation, when Peggy’s new boyfriend unexpectedly asks if he & Molly are planning on hearing wedding bells in their future, which leaves Mike tongue-tied in his answer.

House is always a suspenseful show, which means you are always sure to get plenty of drama and urgency. Tonight’s episode is going to be no different, especially now that Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) has returned. If you’ve not seen any House this season, you’re seriously missing out on one of their best seasons yet! Good thing the show has been renewed, because the episodes seem to be getting better and better!

Tonight, Thirteen is surprised when her ex-con friend Darrien (guest star Amy Landecker) shows up at her apartment without warning. Darrien is in need of a doctor and looks to her old lockup buddy for assistance. When Thirteen learns that her friend has returned to her old drug abusing ways, she promises not to take her to the hospital for care, in order to avoid running into cops or getting on House’s (Hugh Laurie) bad side. Instead, Thirteen leans on Chase (Jesse Spencer) in her time of desperation. Isn’t that an interesting person to turn to, when Foreman (Omar Epps) is her ex-boyfriend? Avoiding House seems to be a good thing, as he is busy dealing with some devastating information. Could this be the straw that breaks the good doctor’s back? In the meantime, Taub (Peter Jacobson) is working on coming to terms with some of his own surprising news.

Find out if Thirteen can keep her visitor unnoticed by tuning in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of House @ Clicker.

It’s almost always a nail-biter as to whether or not Chuck will be renewed for a new season. It usually comes down to the wire. This year, though, NBC gave us viewers kind of a … treat, I guess. lol They have already renewed the show for next season, with the caveat that next season will have 13 episodes, and it will be the show’s last. So it’s good news and bad news, although getting that news this early gives the show’s creative team time to plan out the end so we aren’t left with questions at the end. As for this season, when we left off last week, Vivian Volkoff had triggered the kill switch (via her DNA) on Sarah during Chuck & Sarah’s rehearsal dinner. Unlike the men at the meeting Morgan infiltrated, Sarah didn’t die right away, although she is hanging on by the hair on her chinny chin chin. Will Chuck and his friends & family be able to save her? I bet we’ll find out on tonight’s season finale!

Tonight, Chuck enlists the help of his wedding party in order to take down his foe and stop her from ruining the big day. When he turns to a criminal mastermind for help with the operation, the CIA sends in their toughest agent to put a stop to them.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Chuck @ Clicker.

It’s true that I’m on vacation, but some habits are hard to break, and one of those is my talking about Hawaii Five-0. I can’t believe it’s time for the season finale already. Whatever will I do without my boyfriend to entertain me on Monday nights? *sigh* Last week’s episode brought the team closer to catching Wo Fat, but at what cost?

On tonight’s episode, when Five-0 gets too close to the truth about Wo Fat and his associates, the criminal mastermind retaliates by trying to destroy the team. They’ve always played by their own rules, but when the Governor can no longer protect them, it’s time for Five-0 to pay the consequences of their actions.

Tune in to CBS at 10/9c to see what price the team has to pay in this season finale. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.
