If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/7/11

I *think* the site problems are behind us! Thank you all for being so patient. 🙂 To make it up to you, over the next week, we’ll have a bunch of giveaways to celebrate the beginning of the Fall season. Some great stuff, including more from USA Network, plus Glee and Modern Family, so keep on the lookout for them! Now, there’s eom great stuff on tonight, so check out what we think you should be watching!

Last week on Melissa & Joey, Joey Lawrence’s real life brothers Andy & Matthew guest starred. I don’t know about you, but I loved both of the episodes from last week. I loved how we got to see Joe’s feelings for Mel come into play again, as his jealousy unfolded. And then we saw Mel taking Lennox to buy her first (or so she thinks!) fake ID and her first concert. Seeing Ryder with Holly and her parents, too… Just all of it was fantastic. I love this show and am so happy we’re getting two more episodes tonight!

On tonight’s first episode, “Play Ball,” after her star player suffers an injury, Mel must find a replacement for the office softball team. She has Joe pretend to be the “office manager” so he can help lead their team to victory. However, Joe’s management skills are more than the office can handle. Meanwhile, Ryder butts heads with Lennox when he asks her to publish his girlfriend Holly’s story in the school blog.

Then on the second episode, “A House Divided,” Joe pays a visit to Mel’s neighbor, Arnie (John Ratzenberger, Cheers), and asks him to do something about his noisy parrot, but ends up finding Mel’s house has been built on part of the neighbor’s property. Joe and Mel must remain civil with the neighbor to gain the land back, however Mel finds being nice to her neighbor to be a little difficult. Meanwhile, Lennox stars in a PSA Ryder films for a school project.

Check out both new episodes tonight at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c on ABC Family. Learn where to find episodes online of Melissa & Joey @ Clicker.

Rescue Me has been an incredible staple on TV, and its honesty and look at the events of 9/11 have made it a trailblazer. Denis Leary and cast have made this show so monumental and so poignant. With all of the crazy and insane things that this fire station and the Gavins have shown viewers, this roller coaster ride comes to a touching end, and it will leave viewers with their jaws to the ground. Never shying away from the crass, the obscene, the vulgar, or the gripping, Rescue Me will be loved and cherished for years to come. An appropriate end comes to this show with the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Tune in for one last drink with Tommy and the crew!

Tonight, after the raging inferno that blasted the 62 truck last episode, the members of the station struggle to pick up the pieces. New probies show up and receive the familiar speech and stand before a brand new leader.

Watch the 80-minute series finale of Rescue Me tonight at 10/9 on FX! Learn where to find episodes online of Rescue Me @ Clicker.

Tonight is another new episode of Top Chef: Just Desserts. While I haven’t yet picked which chef I’d like to see win, I’m kind of rooting for extreme underdog Craig. This guy is in way over his head. He doesn’t have the experience, and he’s even competing against one of his culinary school teachers. But he has such a positive attitude, and I feel like he represents us home cooks on the show. I know he won’t win, but I’m hoping Craig can last a few more weeks. This season has been just as entertaining as the first, and I’m so glad to watch new episodes of some version of Top Chef.

In tonight’s episode, “Villa Rosa,” there’s a challenge to develop a complex flavor within a tiny space, and the chefs try to create the ultimate “Dessert Delight” flavors.

Check it out tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Top Chef: Just Desserts @ Clicker.

Can I just say how much I’m enjoying Buried Treasure on FOX? It’s the twin brothers from Antique Roadshow, going around to houses across the country and finding those “buried treasures.” We’ve seen some tragic stories (last week’s horse farm, which was struck by lightning and lost not only the indoor arena and stuff, but also several important, expensive horses comes to mind), some heartwarming stories, and just some great stuff going on with different families. It really could have been a boring show, but between the intensely likeable Keno brothers and the interesting families and situations, it’s incredibly fun to watch.

On tonight’s episode, modern-day treasure hunters Leigh and Leslie Keno visit the Cline family, headed by an ex-New York cop who inherited a crumbling Ashland, New York, estate from his art dealer brother, which could be filled with untold riches or a houseful of fakes. Later, the brothers visit the Lowe family from Cleveland, Ohio, whose house has been picked over by past treasure-hunters and are hoping that something was missed and left behind in order to get enough money to pay for college tuition. Leigh and Leslie will investigate items of interest using cutting-edge technology to determine authenticity, condition and—ultimately—worth.

See the new episode tonight at 8/7c on FOX. Learn where to find episodes online of Buried Treasure @ Clicker.
