If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/22/12

This week has been so incredibly busy already, and I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday. Let’s get over this hump and onto the rest of the week, but before we do, here’s what you should be watching tonight.

Megan’s Choice #1

Suburgatory has been hitting it out of the park lately, with some funny yet poignant story lines. Last week’s episode, we saw Lisa feel inadequate to her brother ‘The Body’ (aka Ryan), but after he damaged his ACL wrestling, she got a taste of being the favorite. Meanwhile, Tessa was flunking physical education and made the mistake of believing all jocks are dumb. In the end, she decided to try to fix her grades and learned that some of the athletes are actually really smart.

On tonight’s episode, “Fire with Fire,” when Jill turns to newly single Dallas for inspiration and support, her marriage to Noah goes on the rocks. Meanwhile, Dallas begins spending a lot of time with her hot, younger boyfriend, Yoni (Wilmer Valderrama), which causes tension with George, and Dalia befriends Lisa to get back at Tessa for dating Scott Strauss – so Tessa decides to take action and recruits Kimantha to make Dalia jealous.

To see if George is jealous of Dallas’ new boyfriend, tune in to ABC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Suburgatory @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching American Idol, Criminal Minds, One Tree Hill, Survivor, and CSI.

I had an idea going into last week’s episode that Jack wasn’t going to make it. But as the episode went on, it seemed like maybe I was wrong. Maybe they were able to get to him in time and were able to save his life…and then the final fifteen seconds of the show totally blew that theory out of the water. Hank’s expression when he told them that Jack was dead was simply heartbreaking. That was one of my favorite scenes with Mark Feuerstein throughout the entire series. How great was Tom Cavanagh as the ill fated Jack O’Malley, anyway? He needs a pilot, ASAP!

On tonight’s episode, “This One’s for Jack,” while struggling to come to terms with Jack’s death, Hank must deal with three youths who continually risk their health making dangerous home videos. Evan and Boris’ cousin look into an experimental treatment.

Don’t miss the season finale tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Royal Pains @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching American Idol, Suburgatory, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, Happy Endings, & Law & Order: SVU.

Kyle’s Choice

The Middle is consistently one of my favorite comedies of the week. Last time, Sue and Frankie camped out for Justin Bieber tickets. However, Frankie didn’t realize that Sue had already promised the second ticket to her friend. Meanwhile, Axl and his friends tried everything in order to run faster than the speed limit. And Mike helped prepare Brick for the Spelling Bee—and consoled him after his embarrassing performance.

One thing I really like about this show is that there are a lot of small details that reward the regular viewers. In past episodes, we learned of Sue’s affinity for Justin Bieber, so I couldn’t wait to see that enthusiasm dialed up to 11 in this episode when a concert was on the line. Last year, Brick lost the Spelling Bee due to his whispering, and it was great to see a callback to that in this episode. It was also nice to see Axl and Frankie getting a sweet mother/son moment together and Frankie’s inner monologue about not pushing it.

In tonight’s episode, “The Sit Down,” Axl, Sue, and Brick ask their parents to ease up and stop hassling them, so Frankie and Mike oblige and enjoy the break from exercising constant parental authority.

See it tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Middle @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching: Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, Modern Family, Happy Endings, Suburgatory, Top Chef, Face Off, Royal Pains, and yes, Whitney and Are You There, Chelsea?.

Lisa’s Choice

On last week’s Happy Endings, the entire gang fell in love with Max’s new man, Grant (James Wolk) who they all, except Dave, found utterly perfect. This lead Max to wonder if he wasn’t good enough to actually date the perfect guy, and it sent him on a mission to break up with Grant. Grant broke down and finally admitted he is not perfect and that he was doing everything the gang wanted in order to please them and make them like him, prompting Max to reevaluate the breakup. Dave set out to prove that he was way cooler than Grant, not impressing anyone at all.

On a brand new episode, “The Butterfly Effect Effect,” some people wait for the groundhog to signal the end of winter, but instead, this tight knit group of friends wait for Brad and Jane’s annual “spring smackdown,” their yearly blowout of a domestic squabble. This lets them know when Max will come out of hibernation and winter will end.

Tune in for all the laughs at 9:30/8:30c to ABC! Learn where to find episodes online of Happy Endings @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching The Middle, Suburgatory, and Modern Family!
