If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/13/12

Yesterday, the new iPhone was announced, so that means I’ll probably be staying up late tonight to try to place my pre-order as soon as it’s possible! Fall TV really started to pick up this week, and I’m already way behind—things are piling up on my TiVo. I can’t believe there’s still a couple more weeks of these trickling premieres before everything is in full swing—I don’t know how I’m going to watch it all! To help you decide what to watch tonight, here’s our recommendations.

Kyle’s Choice

Last night’s Big Brother was a super-sized episode. We got the Veto, Eviction, and Head of Household competition all in one night. Ian and Shane were still clueless about Dan’s plotting to get them out of the house. During the Veto competition, Ian was eliminated for not pressing his button, so he assisted Shane in order to ensure that Jenn would remain on the block. Shane won the veto, and for doing so, he also won a special trip outside the house. He chose Danielle as his guest to meet the Fierce Five and watch their gymnastics performance at the Tour of Champions. It was like a first date for the showmance couple, and Danielle fell more in love with him, worrying that she would need to choose between her alliances with Dan and Shane.

Shane, of course, used the veto to pull himself off the block, and Ian put up Danielle in his place. Jenn was voted out unanimously by Dan and Shane, becoming the fifth member of the jury. Danielle won the Head of Household competition and guaranteed herself a spot in the final three. I’m sure she is probably going to nominate Ian and Shane. Dan is willing to do anything and to throw anyone under the bus to make sure he wins. So I hope Ian can win the power of veto and keep himself in the game!

See all the reality drama tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Big Brother @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The X Factor, Glee, Wilfred, Awkward., Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

Jenny’s Choice

For the third week in a row, my pick for tonight is Sullivan & Son. Like I’ve said, I love this show. Last week was kind of sad, though. Steve’s aunt, who was basically just a con man (woman?), came back, claiming to be a changed woman. But she ended up scamming the guys at the bar out of thousands of dollars. Luckily, Steve figured it out and scammed her right back to get their money back. But it was a hard lesson for him to learn. My favorite part of the episode was the stuff between Steve’s sister, Susan, and their mother, Ok Cha. Watching the back and forth between the two of them is always fun, and last week was pretty darn funny.

Tonight is the season finale, which is kind of sad, but it’s been renewed for a second season, so I can’t cry too hard. (Plus, it means that Cougar Town is coming back—even though that’s not until January. *sniff*)

On tonight’s episode, “Hank Speech,” Steve has to take on Hank as a client after one of Hank’s coworkers files an HR complaint against him for making ‘inappropriate comments,’ but the gang is hesitant to rally behind him. Meanwhile, Susan and her mother bond and spend time together after Susan provides her mother with a fake ID granting her senior citizen status. Will Sasso (Less Than Perfect, $#*! My Dad Says) guest stars.

Laugh along with me tonight when you watch TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Sullivan & Son @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, The X Factor, & Extreme Chef.

Megan’s Choice

I am SO excited for tonight’s season premiere of Glee! It doesn’t matter that the story lines aren’t always cohesive or that they broke up Rachel and Finn—all that matters is that I’m a happy camper when Glee is on. When we left our favorite McKinley students last season, some had graduated, some had broken up, and some had fallen deeper in love. Finn is off to find himself in the army, while Rachel is in New York at NYADA, and New Directions are coming off a big win. Let’s see what this season has to bring.

On tonight’s premiere, “The New Rachel,” season 4 begins with Rachel moving to New York City to attend NYADA, where she meets an attractive older student. Back at McKinley, the glee club seeks new recruits (including Puck’s half brother) at auditions.

To see if this season hits the right notes, tune in to FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Glee @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing The X Factor.

JJ’s Choice

I discovered Awkward just before the second season started, and I’ve been in love with it since then. The show follows a teenage girl, Jenna, with her ups and mostly downs in her family, with her boyfriends, and with the bitch in school who has it in for her. The title couldn’t have been picked better, although I love that the show never gets só in-your-face awkward that it becomes hard to watch. This season, Jenna really has had a hard time picking between Matty and Jake, and last episode, the whole school weighed in on Jenna’s choice. And Lacey is finally dealing with the repercussions of sending the letter at the beginning of the show.

On tonight’s episode, “Once Upon a Blog,” Jenna fictionalizes her blog, hoping to change her fate and figure out her future.

See what awkwardness arises tonight on MTV at 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Awkward @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The X Factor, Project Runway, & Wipeout.
