If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/12

You know how slow last night was because of football, baseball, and the presidential debate? Tonight more than makes up for it. It’s a crazy-busy night of television, but we’re determined to let you know what we think you should be watching. So take a look and see if we can help you narrow it down. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

I waffled back and forth on what to pick tonight because there’s so much on. Did I want to go comedy, with Raising Hope or Ben and Kate, both of which I adore? Or did I want to go drama, with one of the NCIS shows? In the end, I’m choosing Flashpoint again this week. Last week’s season premiere was absolutely heartbreaking. The entire team took it so hard when Ed had to shoot the young woman who was threatening & trying to shoot her abusive, psycho father. Ed was strong in front of the team, but once he was home, he let it all hit him and showed how much it had affected him. Everyone was upset, but Raf seemed to be taking it the hardest back at the office. I thought he quit because they said they couldn’t do it differently next time, that when they shoot like Ed did, they can’t shoot to wound or maim. But from pictures of next week’s ep, he’s in there…so maybe he didn’t quit? I dunno. I hope not. I like him…although not as much as I like Sam. (What is it about Canadian cop shows & sexy characters named Sam?! Megan, any ideas? LOL)

On tonight’s episode, “No Kind of Life,” a gunpoint abduction at a doctor’s office puts Team One on a collision course with a desperate felon as his bleeding son’s life rests in Sam’s hands.

Don’t miss the pulse-pounding action tonight on ION at 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Raising Hope, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Vegas, Happy Endings, The New Normal, Dancing with the Stars, Ben and Kate, 19 Kids & Counting, Chopped, Covert Affairs, Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S., & Sons of Anarchy.

Megan’s Choice

The X Factor is wrapping up the judge’s house section and heading into the live shows, but unfortunately, last week, we got bulldozed by some baseball issues that messed up us all getting to see who the judges chose. We were able to see Britney Spears’s, L.A. Reid’s, and two of Demi Lovato’s choices, but that was only some of the country. Thankfully, FOX is fixing this incredibly annoying error, and we’ll all get to see the results this week. I don’t want to leak any spoilers for anyone who didn’t get to see, but I agree fully with Britney’s and L.A.’s choices—I’m very content with those choices.

On tonight’s episode, we are finally shown which 4 acts each judge chooses to continue on to the live shows.

To see if your favorites get through, tune in to FOX at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The X Factor @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, NCIS: LA, Go On, The New Normal, The Voice, Hart of Dixie, Emily Owens M.D., New Girl, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, and Ben and Kate.

Kyle’s Choice

One of my favorite comedies, Happy Endings, returns tonight for the start of its third season! At the end of last season, the gang all attended the same wedding. Penny was seated at the Skype table, where she met remote attendee Chris (Brian Austin Green), and the two hit it off. Meanwhile, Max performed at the wedding as part of an all-male Madonna cover band called “Mandonna”; Brad finally confessed to Jane that he had been fired from his job; and Alex and Dave seemed to have gotten back together.

What I love about this show is the humor—it always has me laughing out loud. But more than that, it has characters that I care about, and I really enjoy the friendships between them. Although there was a moment in the season finale where it appeared as though they were going to try to pair up Dave & Penny, and I’m really glad that didn’t happen. It looks like Chris is back in tonight’s episode, so I hope that we are done with that whole Penny/Dave nonsense!

In tonight’s episode, “Cazsh Dummy Spillionaires,” the on-again, off-again relationship between Alex and Dave is on-again, while an accident puts Penny in a full body cast and turns Max into her angel of mercy, until he gets a eyeful of her hunky physical therapist. Later, out-of-work Brad tries to keep a secret from Jane.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Vegas, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, Go On, The New Normal, Parenthood, Raising Hope, Ben and Kate, New Girl, The X Factor, Hart of Dixie, Emily Owens, M.D., Sons of Anarchy, Flipping Out, Chopped, Covert Affairs, Face Off, Hot Set, Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S., and Underemployed. (Yikes!)

JJ’s Choice

Last season, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23 premiered, and I was very curious about it. I tend to love it when actors don’t take themselves too seriously, and James Van Der Beek doesn’t shy away from some pretty funny jokes. Sometimes, I wonder about the longevity of the show. Without growth, there is only so much you can do, and without a B, you kind of lose the premise. Ah well. For now, it’s still a very funny comedy.

On tonight’s episode, “The Reunion,” James goes for a Dawson’s Creek reunion against Chloe’s advice. Busy Phillips, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, and Frankie Muniz make cameo appearances.

See if James succeeds on ABC at 9:31/8:31c. Learn where to find episodes online of Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23 @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, New Girl, Go On, Happy Endings, and The X Factor (after the FOX debacle last week).
