If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/8/12

Less than a week ’til my kid starts high school. It doesn’t seem possible, I swear. What also doesn’t seem possible is that fall TV is right around the corner, but it is. I’m glad because, even though my DVR is full of stuff I need to watch, I’ve been missing some of the regular season shows something fierce! As for tonight, there’s plenty on to choose from, so to narrow it down, we’re going to give you our recommendations on what you should be watching. 🙂

There are lots of comedies on Wednesday nights this summer that make me laugh. One of them is TV Land’s The Exes. I really enjoy everything about it. One of my favorite episodes to date, though, had to be last week, when Holly realized after spending so much time with her pregnant assistant (who is so tiny, she looks like she swallowed a beach ball. lol) that she was ready to be a mother before it was too late. At first, the guys tried to find a donor for her, but when none of them worked out the way the guys had hoped, they each secretly (from each other…) volunteered their services. Of course, Holly realized in the end that she wasn’t ready to give up on love, so she froze some eggs, just in case, but watching the guys try to win her “uterus” was hysterical.

On tonight’s episode, “Lovers and Strangers,” Holly’s office crush, Paul, returns after recovering from a heart attack. Meanwhile, Stuart hires a cleaning lady to keep the apartment together, but she quickly turns Haskell’s life upside down. Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show) & Paula Jai Parker (Let’s Stay Together) guest star.

Laugh along with the funny tonight on TV Land at 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Exes @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Soul Man, Top Chef Masters, Retired at 35, Go On, Restaurant Impossible, and the 2012 Olympics.

When I heard that Matthew Perry was going to be staring in the new comedy on NBC, Go On, I was hesitant to get on board—but I am so glad I did. This comedy follows Ryan King, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. His boss forces him into counseling before he can return to his job. He is forced into a support group that is full of really strange and wonderful characters, with lots of different stories about what brought them to the grief group to begin with.

Some of my favorite moments from the pilot include a Google car and some medieval costumes that were “borrowed” from another group—I was seriously giggling for a long time. If you weren’t planning on tuning in, you should definitely take my opinion, because if this site has taught you anything, it’s that I’m usually right. 😉

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” the support group surprises Ryan as he tries to keep his head in the game.

To see if this is a comedy you’ll be able to get behind, tune in to NBC at 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of Go On @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Big Brother, Baby Daddy, and Top Chef Masters.

Tonight is the first season (or maybe it’s the 15th) finale of Dallas. Last week, John Ross and Christopher finally realized that they didn’t need to propagate the family feud that had been going on for ages. They decided on a joint venture, Ewing Energies, where money from the oil could be used to fund Christopher’s research. J.R. finally agreed to sign the deed to the ranch over to Bobby, but then Bobby’s aneurysm blew, and he was rushed off the hospital. Meanwhile, Harris Rayland told Sue Ellen that she was going to launder his money or else he would go public with her attempt to bribe him. And Tommy discovered that Rebecca failed to go through with their plan and went after her with a gun. There was a struggle, and the gun went off.

So did Bobby survive (I’m guessing he did) and was it Rebecca’s or Tommy’s blood we saw after the gun went off (I’m guessing Tommy is the one who got shot)? And after that struggle, is Rebecca still pregnant? And who is the father? While we may get some answers, this is a soap, and I fully expect them to pile on the cliffhangers for the next season. Like any soap, I’m guessing, we’ll get some mix of deaths, pregnancy, or long lost child/relative announcements, and/or the return of some character from a previous season (or in this case, the previous series).

In tonight’s episode, “Revelations,” a health crisis brings the Ewing family together, long-buried secrets are exposed, and Christopher and Elena learn harsh truths about the people closest to them.

Check out all the drama tonight on TNT at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Dallas @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Go On, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, Top Chef Masters, Picked Off, and Futurama.
