If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/26/12

This has been a great week so far for television, which is good because I need something to watch and chill out to while I heal. I had slight accident and damaged my ankle, so I’m using this TV time to rest and recuperate. Let’s see what I, as well as the rest of the group, will be watching and relaxing to tonight.

Megan’s Choice

Criminal Minds has remained one of my favorite shows since it first premiered, and that hasn’t changed. I am so excited for tonight’s premiere, even with the loss of Paget Brewster. Yes, I know that there are people who are still bitter about that, but actresses and actors move on—doesn’t change the show I love. Besides, I love the rest of the team, too (especially Garcia and Derek—who totally need to hook up eventually). Last season had a lot of character growth for the whole team, and I’m interested to see where they go this season. Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love) is joining the cast to replace Paget Brewster’s Emily Prentiss.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Silencer,” the season begins with a search for an escaped serial killer in Texas, who sews the mouths of his victims shut. Meanwhile, the BAU members welcome a new linguistics expert.

To see what the new season has to offer, tune in to CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Law & Order: SVU, The X Factor, Animal Practice, CSI, and Guys with Kids.

Tonight, the hilarious ABC Wednesday comedy lineup returns, starting off with the hour-long fourth season premiere of The Middle. This is one of my favorite comedies, and I wish it got as much attention as its neighbor, Modern Family, both of which successfully mix humor with heart. The Heck family is always hilarious—especially the three kids. Underachiever Axl is always saying how much he hates his siblings, but when push comes to shove, he’d do anything for them. Then there’s the ever-optimistic Sue, who always has a smile and a great attitude no matter what is thrown at her. And finally, there’s Brick, who’d rather have his face buried in a book than deal with the outside world. No matter what the situation, the Hecks always seem to bond and realize that family is the most important thing in the end.

In tonight’s episode, “Last Whiff of Summer,” Frankie gets nostalgic about the summers of her youth. Meanwhile, Axl attends summer school; Frankie wants to know which parent her kids favor; Brick grows a tomato; and Sue attempts to bond with her dad.

NOTE: The new series The Neighbors also premieres in tonight’s ABC comedy lineup, but don’t let tonight’s episode scare you away—it gets a lot better next week! 🙂

Laugh along with me tonight on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Middle @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, Modern Family, The Neighbors, Animal Practice, Guys with Kids, The X Factor, Top Chef Masters, and Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out.

JJ’s Choice

Another huge win for Modern Family at the Emmy’s last Sunday. I personally don’t completely agree with the way the Emmy’s are awarded, but I do agree with the Academy that Modern Family is a very solid and very funny show. Tonight is the season premiere and continues with Gloria’s big revelation that she’s pregnant. This happened in the wake of Cam and Mitch failing to adopt a new baby.

On tonight’s episode, “Bringing Up Baby,” Jay’s birthday is coming up, and against his will to keep this as low-key as possible, Phil takes Jay on a very unconventional fishing trip. Meanwhile, Gloria struggles with breaking the news about her pregnancy, Dylan moves into the Dunphy household, and Cam and Mitch decide to adopt a cat.

See the hilarity unfold on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Modern Family @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The X Factor and the Revenge special.

Jenny’s Choice

Last season’s finale of Law & Order: SVU was crazy. High-priced call girls (escorts, whatever. *rolls eyes*), rich, arrogant playboys…and Captain Cragen, who woke up right at the end of the episode with a dead, bloody hooker (again, sorry, escort) in his bed. He didn’t kill her—he’s being set up—but it set the scene for what should be a great start to the new season. And these first two hours tonight should be fantastic because there are several exciting guest stars: Dean Winters returns as undercover cop Brian Cassidy, Peter Jacobson returns as the owner of the escort agency, Adam Baldwin comes on as the tough new captain (temporary…), & Paget Brewster is back on NBC this time as District Attorney Paula Foster.

In tonight’s first episode, “Lost Reputation,” the SVU squad is still dealing from the fallout of Captain Cragen waking up in his bed with a dead escort who was a potential witness in a case. Tensions run high at the precinct as the detectives deal with the district attorney’s investigation.

Then in the second episode, “Above Suspicion,” the SVU team deals with the arrival of a tough new captain. Brian Cassidy treads an increasingly narrow line as an undercover cop in Bart Ganzel’s escort organization. Detective Amaro struggles with his new case and his marriage.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 9/8c & 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Big Brother @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Survivor, Animal Practice, Oh Sit!, Guys with Kids, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, The Neighbors, Top Chef Masters, Restaurant: Impossible, Restaurant Stakeout, & Cajun Pawn Stars.
