If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/18/12

We’re inching closer and closer to Christmas, and I’m beginning to make plans for what we’ll make for Christmas dinner. My in-laws are coming down, so I know we’re going to cook our turkey (thank you, Michael Symon! It’s delicious every time!), and I need to find a stuffing/dressing recipe. The one we tried for Thanksgiving (also courtesy of Michael Symon…) wasn’t my cup of tea, although my mom really loved it. LOL So I’m thinking maybe I’ll try my hand at my mom’s, even though she doesn’t have a recipe written down. It’ll be interesting to see what she sends me via email… Anyway, there’s still some great TV on tonight to distract us from worrying too much about the upcoming holiday, so check out our recommendations.

ncisla1218smallI debated doing NCIS tonight because Tony’s dad (played by Robert Wagner) is back, but in the end, I gotta go with NCIS: LA. Last week, Deeks was gone (supposedly in court testifying on a case), and I missed him. Granger filled in as Kensi’s partner for a bit, which made her so nervous. In the end, she found out he may be looking to her to fill more of a leadership role soon. Hmm. I hope not! I like how they have the teams now! This week is the Christmas episode, and from the previews, it looks like it’s going to be a cute one. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Free Ride,” Callen, Sam, Kensi, and Deeks spend Christmas aboard an aircraft carrier investigating the death of a fellow NCIS special agent. Meanwhile, Nell and Eric make the most of the holidays back at headquarters and Hetty takes a trip.

Catch the action (case & maybe romance-wise?) tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: LA @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Happy Endings, Rizzoli & Isles, Leverage, Chopped, & Flashpoint.

thevoice2012smallIt’s time for the final three on The Voice to find out who will be named the winner of the show. What a battle it has been! To be honest, this is the first time on one of these singing competition shows that I love all of the remaining competitors the same way. Nicholas is off the wall but so incredibly talented, Terry is the epitome of classic rock, and Cassadee has a voice that will sound awesome resounding in my car. If I have to choose, I’d go with Terry because he’s so genuine.

All of that aside, it’s been another amazing season for this show, and I’m sorry it’s time to say goodbye. The Voice has become my favorite singing show because the artists are truly artists. Well done, everyone!

On tonight’s finale, we watch Nicholas, Terry, and Cassadee sweat it out until they find out who wears the crown.

To see if your favorite wins, tune into NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Voice @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: LA, and Storage Wars. (Don’t judge me… it’s amusing. 🙂 )

apt231218smallLast week on Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, James was in Los Angeles filming his Dancing with the Stars debut. When June discovered that Chloe was renting out James’s apartment to strangers while he was away, she called her mother for advice. June soon discovered that her mother was actually in LA with James and had lied about not being able to travel to New York to visit her. James overheard the conversation about his apartment and got nervous, so June’s mother gave him some Chinese tea to calm his nerves. However, the tea had some kind of drugs in it and worked a little too well, and James’s performance was a complete failure. Meanwhile, Chloe showed off her skill of lying at bars to get free drinks, and June decided to try it out for herself.

I’m really enjoying this second season of the show. I like how they have paired up James and June’s mom as friends, as it adds a strange but fun new dynamic to the group—one that I don’t think I’ve ever seen on any other series. Krysten Ritter (whom I usually can’t stand) has actually been growing on me, as well. Where I originally was just annoyed by Chloe, I now actually find her funny. Apt 23 is a fun show, and I think it pairs nicely with Happy Endings for a nice 1-hour ABC comedy block on Tuesdays.

On tonight’s episode, “A Weekend in the Hamptons…,” Chloe drags June and James on a weekend getaway to the Hamptons, where she plans to crash an exclusive party.

See the fall finale tonight on ABC at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Happy Endings @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Happy Endings, Chopped, Rizzoli & Isles, and Leverage.

happyendings1218smallHappy Endings is so consistently funny, but somehow, the ratings are only so-so. I love the rapid pace of the jokes and how the writers somehow manage to embrace the flaws of the characters and turn it into comedy gold.

On tonight’s episode, “No-Ho-Ho,” the gang discovers that Jane is actually a Christmas baby (sidenote – how did her sister not know this?) and has been lying about her birthday because she hated being overshadowed by the holiday, so the group makes an extra special effort to throw her a Christmas-free birthday.

See if they succeed on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Happy Endings @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching The Voice and Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23.

    No judging on Storage Wars–I actually just watched 2 episodes this morning! It not a show I ever plan to watch (no idea what night it airs or what season they are on) but I have a season pass set on the DVR in the guest room that keeps up to 10 episodes around, in case I ever need something random to watch. 🙂 prefer the original over the Texas crew, but I have it record both.

    Yeah, no judging here, either. lol We don’t actively watch it, but when Scott is flipping through channels, he’ll usually stop if he sees it on. I find it amusing.
