If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/11/12

It’s all downhill from here, ladies and gentlemen. We’re mid-way through the week, but there’s still some great stuff on, so check out what we think you should be watching tonight.

My whole family is excited, because tonight is the second season premiere of Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy. We absolutely loved last season. Larry is so damn funny, and he always has a blast, wherever he goes. Some of my favorite episodes last season were Larry learning about Emily Post and all the manners that go along with that history, and the moonshine episode. Of course, I can’t forget about Larry dressing up as a mermaid (or…merman? I guess…) and performing in an underwater show. *snicker* Wherever Larry goes, hilarity is always sure to follow.

On tonight’s episode, “Alaska Road Trip,” when Larry travels to Alaska, he attempts to catch moose poachers in the act, discovers a local legend, and then decides to pay an unexpected visit to Wasilla’s most recognized citizen, along with her family.

Check it out tonight on the History Channel at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy @ Clicker.

Tonight is the season premiere of One Tree Hill, and this is the final time I’ll be writing that. This is the show’s 9th and final season, and it’s bittersweet, in my opinion. I have been watching the Tree Hill gang from the beginning. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve groaned at cheesy moments, and grown up along with this cast. It hasn’t been the same since Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) left, but good news is he’ll be coming back for at least one episode this season. I’m interested to see where we go with our favorites and how they are going to wrap up such a major part of mine and so many other’s TV viewing life.

On tonight’s season premiere, “Know This, We’ve Noticed,” Brooke is adapting to family life with Julian and their new brood; Clay and Quinn are facing a puzzling complication, and people from the past are emerging from the woodwork.

To start the journey to the end of One Tree Hill, tune in to The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of One Tree Hill @ Clicker.

In addition to the always-wonderful Wednesday ABC lineup, I’m looking forward to tonight’s second season premiere of Face Off. If you’ve seen any of the various clothing or home design reality competition shows, you’re already familiar with the format. The competition begins with fourteen makeup artists hoping to impress the judges with their prosthetic makeup skills. Each week, there is a themed challenge, and at least one competitor is sent home.

The judging panel includes accomplished makeup artists Ve Neill and Glenn Hetrick, and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos. It’s so amazing to see how these contestants transform their models into aliens, serial killers, monsters, or whatever each week! Of course, there’s also the fights, romances, and bromances we’ve all come to love and expect in our reality shows. 🙂

In tonight’s episode, “Return to Oz,” fourteen aspiring makeup artists face off in the Season 2 premiere, which has them re-imagining characters from “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

See the 75-minute season premiere tonight on Syfy at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Face Off @ Clicker.

Last week on Revenge, Tyler took things to the extreme. He crashed Daniel’s birthday party and held everyone at gunpoint. That’s of course after Nolan and Emily found out that he was off his antipsychotic medication. They also learned that Tyler had a brother and alerted him to Tyler’s cruel intentions. Conrad and Victoria began their sordid divorce and tried to see if they could come to an amicable agreement. Naturally, that would never happen. Victoria admitted to her lawyer that she lost the child she was carrying when she married Conrad, which means she wouldn’t get anything from her prenup. Victora’s lawyer then doctored up some documents in order to keep that from happening in order to ensure Victoria’s future. What secrets, lies, twists, and turns will go down tonight?

Tonight, on an all new episode, “Infamy,” Emily has set her sights on a new target when a famed author, who has very deep ties to both the Graysons and the Clarkes, returns to the Hamptons. Conrad proves just how dirty he is willing to get and play when Daniel is dragged into the divorce. Jack actually lets his guard down with Amanda, and a stunning revelation is unveiled and becomes quite the game changer for Emily and the Graysons.

Tune in for the delicious drama at 10/9c on ABC! Learn where to find episodes online of Revenge @ Clicker.

It’s Wednesday, which means more new episodes of Hot in Cleveland & The Exes. I still am amazed how much I enjoy the comedies on TV Land. For a little network that came out of nowhere, it’s really found some great casts to pair up with great writing. Last week on HiC, we saw how all the ladies met, even revisiting how the three of them met Elka in the series premiere. Then on The Exes, Holly had to finally come clean with her mother about her ex-fiance being a cheater and the engagement being off. Judith Light was great as Holly’s mother.

On tonight’s episode of Hot in Cleveland, “Two Girls and a Rhino,” when Joy and Elka learn that their combined scent is an aphrodisiac for the nearly extinct Black Rhino, they’re forced to live together at the Cleveland Zoo until the species is saved. Meanwhile, Victoria struggles with the fact that she’s dating a janitor, while Melanie dates a senator. Doug Savant (Desperate Housewives), Tim DeKay (White Collar), and Dan Roebuck (The Fugitive) guest star.

Then on tonight’s new episode of The Exes, “Lost in Translation,” Phil meets a foreign lingerie model who doesn’t speak English, and Stuart has to act as his interpreter. Eden helps Holly overcome a bad first impression with a handsome neighbor. Haskell buys a coffin as an investment. Robert Mailhouse guest stars.

Laugh along tonight on TV Land at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hot in Cleveland & The Exes @ Clicker.

    Sorry Jenny, but I can’t stand Larry The Cable Guy. Mater was the worst part of the Cars films–makes it look like all Americans are stupid hicks. The whole Cable Guy persona is totally fake–check out this clip on YouTube, before he magically “turned” redneck. 🙂

    haha I so don’t care. I still find him hysterical. Maybe cause I’m from Oklahoma originally and Kansas now… lol

  3. Megan Ward says:

    Must be Jenny, because I find him slightly irritating. Although I did like Mater so *shrug*
