If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/28/12

What a long week it’s been already! Anyone who says that unpacking is easier than packing hasn’t attempted to do with two young children running around. To help me take my mind off stress of unpacking, let’s see what’s on TV to unwind to.

Criminal Minds is one of those rare shows that keeps me happy from beginning to end but also makes my mind work constantly, as well. I hope we revisit the whole Reid being in love situation again soon because that’s one relationship road I’m interested in seeing unfold. The cases this season have been quick moving and interesting, so I’m happy the writing seems to be back to it’s early season brilliance.

On tonight’s episode, “Magnificent Light,” a popular motivational speaker becomes the prime suspect in a murder, when an attendee at one of his conferences is killed. Garcia is confused when Morgan doesn’t want to attend a dinner honoring a family friend.

To see what’s happening with Morgan, tune into CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching The X Factor, Suburgatory, CSI, and Arrow.

I’m so happy because tonight is the return of Hot in Cleveland & Happily Divorced. These are two hits for TV Land. The first is back tonight for the season premiere, and the second is airing its mid-season premiere. On the season finale of Hot in Cleveland, David Spade & Regis Philbin guest starred as fancy hairdressers who were over run when Joy & Victoria figured out that’s where Melanie had been going to get her hair done at their shop. At the end, they opened the door to find a baby that was left on the doorstep. On Happily Divorced, Fran had started seeing Frankie, a much younger guy who she met while he was bringing pizza from his shop to her parents. But then Elliot came back and said he was over his fear of commitment. Who will she choose?

On tonight’s episode of Hot in Cleveland, “That Changes Everything,” the ladies are surprised when a baby suddenly becomes a part of their lives. Meanwhile, Melanie gets a great job offer, and the only catch is, it’s from a crazy super-vixen, and Elka finally one-ups her boyfriend, Pierre. Heather Locklear & Jay Harrington guest star.

Then on tonight’s episode of Happily Divorced, “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place II,” Fran is torn between Elliot and Frankie and realizes she must decide one guy to focus on a relationship with, but even though she makes the choice she feels is right, Peter’s new boss makes her second guess her decision.

Don’t miss them starting at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hot in Cleveland & Happily Divorced @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Arrow, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Restaurant: Impossible, CSI, Restaurant Stakeout, Top Chef, & Cajun Pawn Stars.

Tonight, BBC America kicks off the second series of The Hour. Last season, it was June of 1956, and newsreel producer Freddie Lyon (Ben Whishaw) was passed over when selecting the producer a new current affairs program created by the BBC. Freddie’s friend Bel (Romola Garai) got the job, and she put him in charge of the domestic news and hired Hector Madden (Dominic West) as the anchor. Freddie first investigated the suicide or possible murder of a college professor, but soon found himself looking for bigger stories to cover, and with the crisis in the Suez escalating, he found just that. While the administration tried to pressure the team to sanitize their news reports for the public, Freddie refused to give in.

The Hour is like The Newsroom, but British and a half-century younger, with a dash of Mad Men. While I’m certainly not as familiar with the events of the 1950s as I am of those referenced in The Newsroom, I still enjoy this series, and I find the behind-the-scenes politics of these newsrooms very fascinating. I’m interested to see where they go in the second season. Will there be any fallout from the events of last season, or will the results of the newscast outweigh the disobeying of authority?

On tonight’s episode, there is a fear of nuclear war, but Bel thinks the real story may be the increase in crime. Meanwhile, Hector ignores his marital problems and is drawn deeper into the world of the El Paradis club.

See the drama of the 50s tonight on BBC America at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Hour @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, Modern Family, Suburgatory, Nashville, Arrow, Supernatural, American Horror Story, Life After Top Chef, and Top Chef.
