If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/12

Welcome to the first day of a crazy week of TV premieres. It’s a relatively slow night comparatively, but Kyle & I both still have things we think you should be watching, so read on to find out what they are. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s episode of The Great Food Truck Race had me on the edge of my seat for kind of the first time this season. My vote from the beginning has been for Seoul Sausage, and they’ve been doing well enough all season that I haven’t had to worry whether or not they’ll be sent home. But they slacked off last week and kind of didn’t give it their all, especially when it was just the one chef in there alone, and it caused them to be in the bottom three. They vowed at the end that it wouldn’t happen again…and I hope it doesn’t, but if they play again like they did last week, then they deserve whatever happens. Just sayin’. Much to my happiness, Momma’s Grizzly Grub was sent packing. I didn’t really like them, so I was happy that they were gone. *shrug*

On tonight’s episode, “Mistake by the Lake?” the final three teams head to Cleveland, where they have to take an everyday vegetable and create a winning appetizer. This week’s speed bump includes a hot dog cart for each team.

Don’t miss it tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Great Food Truck Race @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars, $24 in 24 on Food Network, All American Handyman & Copper.

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight is the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The Emmys, Oscars, and Golden Globes are the three awards shows I definitely watch every year, with the Emmy’s being the one I look forward to the most since I am much more of a TV person than a movie person. I’m not sure why I get drawn into these award shows, but I do, and I usually end up upset at the end when some show I don’t watch takes home all the awards. 🙂

This year, my big hope is that Breaking Bad sweeps its nominated categories, but I have a feeling that Homeland might steal away a lot of its awards. And Modern Family seems to be nominated in like every comedy category, so I suspect they will also be a big winner tonight. This year’s host is Jimmy Kimmel—while not my first pick, I guess they could have done worse. If you haven’t already, check out Jenny’s, Megan’s, and my reactions to the nominations and who we’d like to see win each category. Let us know what shows you are rooting for tonight! Our Picks!

Follow the Red Carpet on into the awards show tonight on ABC at 7/6c & 8/7c.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Great Food Truck Race, $24 in 24, and Breaking Amish.
