If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/12/13

I finished editing a fantastic new book last night that I really loved. I wish more of my job involved books that were actually fun for me to edit… LOL Anyway, I know you aren’t here for my thoughts on my job. 😉 So read on to see what we think about tonight’s new television. 😀

thetastesmallIt’s been a fun road for new series The Taste. I have loved the idea behind the blind tasting, and I think it’s worked well. The only part I didn’t like was when the person who won immunity then really, truly DESERVED to go home later in the episode but they couldn’t because they had the immunity. Still, it’s been an enjoyable show, and watching Malarkey and Ludo go at each other like they have has been amusing. I’m pretty sure about who I want to win out of those who are left… Khristianne, from Team Malarkey, is the most qualified while being the least annoyoing. Sarah has spent too much time flirting and playing the pretty girl to Ludo’s lisciviousness. Diane is good, but she’s pretty cocky sometimes. And don’t even get me started on Gregg, who I’ve hated since the beginning for his cocky attitude and grew to dislike even more as the weeks went on.

On tonight’s episode, “The Taste Finale: Triple Threat,” after seven weeks of intense competition in the kitchen, the final four remaining participants face off to determine the ultimate winner. After a group challenge eliminates one chef, the final three prepare three dishes in less than two hours.

To see who becomes the ultimate victor tonight, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Taste @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, 19 Kids & Counting, Body of Proof, Cougar Town, Chopped, Justified, & Robot Combat League.

hellskitchen2013smallTonight is almost as exciting as Christmas for me because it’s the premiere of an all-new season of Hell’s Kitchen. That’s right, the fabulous Gordon Ramsay is back with the 11th season of this hit cooking competition. I love watching the drama, but also the excitement as the contestants battle it out week after week to see if cream really does rise to the top. This season is no different than any others, in the sense of there is still a hugely diverse group of contestants, extreme challenges, lots of services, and of course lots of yelling. I’ve seen the premiere, and let me tell you, there are some incredibly absurd chefs this year and you are not going to want to miss this for anything. Sit back and watch the rollercoaster through Hell begin.

On tonight’s premiere, “Twenty Chefs Compete,” twenty restaurateurs present their signature dishes to Chef Ramsay in front of an audience—in Las Vegas; the contestants arrive at the dorms; Ramsay sends contestants out of the kitchen in a rocky first dinner service.

To see the 11th season of this adventurous cooking competition begin, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hell’s Kitchen @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Golden Boy, Body of Proof, Smash, The Mindy Project, New Girl, and Preachers’ Daughters.

celebritywifeswapsmallCelebrity Wife Swap is one of those shows that I watch occasionally just as mindless entertainment. It’s interesting to see some of these “celebrities” homes and how they fill their days. Last week, it was Coolio’s girlfriend and Mark McGrath’s wife who swapped places. In the end, Coolio’s girlfriend learned how much of a lazy bum he was and that he had no interest in being a father to her kids, so the two parted ways.

Tonight’s episode features two 80s TV icons I grew up watching. First, there’s Canadian treasure Alan Thicke—who will always be Dr. Seaver of Growing Pains to me (well, that and the host of Animal Crack-Ups). And swapping spouses with him is the always-squinting comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who just recently appeared on the Rachel vs Guy Celebrity Cook-off, proving that he certainly doesn’t do the cooking at home. These guys are pretty old, so they can’t possibly still have children living at home, could they? Unless maybe they are on their second or third wives. 🙂 These guys certainly have different personalities, so it will be fun to see how they adapt to each other’s lifestyles.

On tonight’s episode, “Gilbert Gottfried/Alan Thicke,” Gilbert Gottfried’s wife, who’s grown accustomed to her husband’s frugal ways in their tiny New York City apartment, switches places with Alan Thicke’s spouse, who often throws extravagant dinner parties at their spacious California ranch.

See how the families adjust tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Celebrity Wife Swap @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Golden Boy, Body of Proof, Smash, Hell’s Kitchen, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Justified, Chopped, Face Off, and Robot Combat League.

cougartown312smallCougar Town is always best when it focuses on our group and the family they’ve created. So I’m not too sad that Wade is now gone… He was just an obstacle to get Laurie and Travis together, but we do need to have this happening sometime soon! And last week was very funny with “Grease in Space” and painkiller Ellie. More Cougar Town like this, please!

On tonight’s episode, “You Tell Me,” confused by her mixed feelings for Travis, Laurie resorts to destroying things. But when her anger gets out of control, newly appointed mayor Andy has to step in. Jules starts hanging out with her therapist (guest star Nicole Sullivan) after discovering that her friends have been keeping secrets. And Bobby has a fling with the girl of his dreams (guest star Gillian Vigman) while enjoying a vacation at Target.

To see what secrets the group is keeping and why Bobby is vacationing at Target, tune in to TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Cougar Town @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Smash.
