If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/18/12

Stay five feet from me. Don’t come any closer. I am so sick right now, it’s not even funny. Coughing, throat feels like I swallowed knives, etc etc. So I’m extra glad there’s good stuff on tonight. It gives me a chance to put my feet up and try to relax some. Keep reading to see what we think you should be watching.

Last week’s Law & Order: SVU was sad and kind of heartbreaking… Benson started to pressure a rape suspect into making a false confession, albeit not on purpose, but she was stopped before she was able to. Then that led to a previous suspect who claims his confession was coerced…and it turned out it had been. They eventually got the right guy (for the previous crimes AND the new one), but that led to Benson and her ADA boyfriend to call it quits when he was put in charge of a team that will be looking into old cases. I really enjoyed them together. She deserves to have someone special in her life, and I loved Harry Connick Jr. Ah well. heh

On tonight’s episode, “Valentine’s Day,” while video chatting with his wife (guest star Chloe Sevigny) on the way home from an international business trip, a Wall Street executive watches an intruder assault and abduct her. The kidnappers demand ransom, and Detectives Benson, Amaro, Rollins, and Tutuola are on the scene when the missing housewife arrives to pick up the money. She frantically tells the detectives about her ordeal, but Benson grows suspicious of her story. The SVU squad and Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak dig deeper to find out who the real victim is in this increasingly complicated case.

Check it out tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

In the pilot episode of Don’t Trust The B—- in Apt 23, we learned that Midwestern girl June had moved to Manhatten for her dream job and had found the perfect lush apartment. Unfortunately, her dreams faded away when the company she was set to work for had an embezzlement scandal, a la Bernie Madoff. June found herself deep in debt and out on the streets while scrambling to land a new job and find a place to live. She got hired at a coffee shop and found Chloe with the need for a roommate. Chloe swindled naive June out of her savings. However, Chloe and her snarky friend James Van Der Beek (playing himself) came to learn that naive definitely doesn’t mean stupid.

On tonight’s episode, “Daddy’s Girl,” dating is always awkward, but when you put Chloe into the mix, everything grows tenfold. June learns that the hard way when she allows Chloe to set her up. Meanwhile, James decides to teach an acting class, but he can’t seem to shake his famous Dawson’s Creek persona.

Week after week on American Idol, the contestants are stepping up the competition level. Last week, the judges used the save and saved Jessica Sanchez – which makes sense, but I couldn’t have cared less. I personally think that while the girl does have an amazing voice, she’s already too overexposed and she’s not that interesting. My favorites are Philip Philipps and Colton Dixon. Let’s face it… Those boys could sing me the phone book, and my heart would still swoon.

On tonight’s episode, the top 7 take to the stage again to prove that they have what it takes to win your votes.

To see who brings it and who should have left their singing elsewhere, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of American Idol @ Clicker.

Tonight I’ll also be watching Suburgatory, Law & Order: SVU, Survivor, and Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23.

On last week’s episode of Best Friends Forever, Jessica accidentally butt-dialed her ex-husband on what would have been their third anniversary and revealed how much she missed him. She had originally planned to call and pretend that she was over him, so this sent her into a bit of a depression. Lennon and Joe came up with a plan to cheer her up – have Rav pretend he needs her to replace his chef for the night at the bar. This worked out well, until Jessica’s ex showed up.

While Best Friends Forever certainly isn’t a laugh-out-loud kind of comedy, it has some very fun moments. I really like these characters, their relationships, and how they interact with one another. I’m looking forward to spending some more time with these characters – even if I think the series probably won’t still be on NBC next season, let alone forever.

In tonight’s episode, “Put a Pin in It,” Lennon goes out of her way to please Joe’s parents at his dad’s retirement party. Meanwhile, Jessica must face the reality of her divorce when her belongings show up at her doorstep.

See it tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Best Friends Forever @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23, Revenge, Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, and the season finale of Monster Man.

When we last left the Hamptons in February on Revenge, murder and scandal rocked the Fire & Ice engagement party for Daniel and Emily, and someone had to take the fall. After the devastating turn of events, the Graysons showed a united front while Emily grew more anxious. Ashley stepped up for the family, and Jack was not the only one who was wondering where Amanda had run off to. Daniel was taken into custody for Tyler’s murder, and the Grayson family was seemingly on the brink of distruction.

Tonight, on “Doubt,” Daniel’s imprisonment sends Victoria to depths that no one has even thought possible. The surprise of a past love (James Purefoy as Dominik Wright) provides a destructive but very welcome distraction from the Grayson family struggles. Jack’s search for Amanda grows more and more desperate, and he comes under suspicion for murder.

Watch all the drama unfold tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Revenge @ Clicker.

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