If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/24/12

It’s the last day of the Remote posts for us this week, as none of us have anything we’re watching or recommending for tomorrow. Unfortunately, we still have work & other duties, but for tonight, we can relax to some great TV. See what we think you should watch and then let us know what’s on your schedule!

May 24 will always be one of my favorite days of 2012. Why? Because Rookie Blue returns tonight! Last season ended with Sam & Andy having been in a secret relationship which turned scary when the bad guy Sam was undercover with figured out he was a cop. They broke a bunch of rules having Andy come visit Sam, and they had to pay for that by both gaining a suspension. It left off with Sam asking Andy if she wanted to have some normal down time with him – despite being told to stay away from each other – and her accepting. How will that break have gone? Also, Noelle & Frank had begun a relationship and she announced that she was pregnant (which is ironic, since she’d been trying to have a baby via in vitro anyway). Lots of changes in store for the group!

I’ve seen the premiere, and it was fantastic. There’s a new member of the squad and he’s got a history with one of the “rookies.” Peter Mooney joins the cast as ex-soldier Nick Collins, who is trying to adapt to civilian policing after serving in Afghanistan. Also, William Shatner guest stars on tonight’s episode, and honestly, it was my favorite guest starring role I’ve ever seen him in. He is fantastic, and the story line he’s involved in is heartbreaking.

On tonight’s episode, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life,” Andy returns after her three-month suspension and is ready to face an official tribunal that will determine if she should be reinstated. A drunk driver causes a multi-car collison resulting in a mysterious young girl vanishing from the scene.

Don’t miss a moment starting at 10/9c on ABC. Learn where to find episodes online of Rookie Blue @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance & the series premieres of Duets & Men at Work.

It’s that time of year again when So You Think You Can Dance returns to our televisions, and tonight marks the premiere of the 9th season. Now, this season is going to be jam packed with changes – including TWO winners. That’s right, two winners – one male and one female – which will make it a very interesting season. Another change is that there will no longer be a results show. We’ll see the eliminations on the next show. The best news is more of Jesse Tyler Ferguson being a judge! That is epic and fabulous.

On tonight’s season premiere, “Auditions #1 and #2: Dallas and New York,” the pursuit of “America’s Favorite Dancer” begins. Watch what happens when the most talented dancers – skilled in everything from Ballroom and Ballet to Salsa, Jive, Hip Hop, and Krumping – all compete for a prized spot on the live shows. See who impresses the judges and who trips up.

To see the good, the bad, and the crazy auditions, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of So You Think You Can Dance @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Duets and Rookie Blue.

Tonight, TBS kicks off the brand new comedy series Men at Work with a double-header of episodes. The series follows four friends who work together at a magazine. There’s Milo (Danny Masterson) who’s getting over a recent break-up, photographer and ladies-man Gibbs (James Lesure), sophisticated writer Tyler (Michael Cassidy), and timid reporter Neal (Adam Busch). The series follows the guys in all aspects of their lives – from work to play to dating.

I haven’t seen any clips of the series, but I’m looking forward to it purely based on the cast. James Lesure was great on Las Vegas, Adam Busch will always be one of the Buffy nerds/villains to me, and I remember Michael Cassidy from Privileged. I never watched That ’70s Show, but if it lasted as long as it did, Danny Masterson must have been doing something funny! I was disappointed when TBS cancelled My Boys a few years back, and I hope this will be a good, similar replacement.

In tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” the gang helps Milo wade back into the dating pool following a breakup. Elsewhere, Neal and his girlfriend delve into “dirty talk”; Gibbs gets into trouble with Tyler’s maid. Then, in “Milo Full of Grace,” Neal employs cost-cutting measures at work to impress his boss. Elsewhere, Milo ends up behind bars when investigating drug trafficking for an article; and Tyler happens upon an ex-flame.

See the back-to-back episodes tonight on TBS at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Men at Work @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Awake, and Sweet Genius.
