If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/13

The only thing I like about college basketball is that it makes my TV schedule a little more manageable at the end of March. It’s nice to get some reruns to give me time to catch up on my TiVo backlog (especially before the torrent of new stuff starting/ending this Saturday and Sunday night!). If you don’t watch basketball, there’s not a whole lot on tonight, but don’t worry, we didn’t let that stop us from finding some great suggestions.

1600penn328smallTonight, 1600 Penn finishes out its season with two new episodes. In last week’s pair of episodes, Skip finally graduated college, Becca revealed to D.B. that she had dated Marshall, and Dale and Emily tried to add a little spark back into their marriage. I was really happy that the show went the route of Becca realizing that she really did want D.B. and that her relationship with Marshall was a thing of the past. These two are really great together, and I hope it stays that way, because it’s highly likely that tonight’s two episodes will be the final two of the series. This is such a fun show, and I really wish more Neilsen families were watching!

On tonight’s first episode, “Bursting the Bubble,” a foreign princess visits the White House to attend an annual peace gala and asks Skip to be her escort. Meanwhile, Becca tests D.B.’s parenting skills; and Emily looks to reconnect with old friends.

And in the season finale, “Marry Me, Baby,” President Gilchrist accidentally calls the legality of his marriage into question during an interview with Larry King (playing himself), so Skip tries to resolve the situation. Meanwhile, Becca and D.B. receive surprising news.

Tune in to the see the final two episodes of the season (& possibly series) tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c & 9:31/8:31c. Learn where to find episodes online of 1600 Penn @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Raising Hope, Archer, Legit, and Nathan for You.

raisinghope328asmallIt’s hard to believe this season of Raising Hope is over already after tonight, but it is. Tonight is the one-hour season finale…episodes 3×21 & 3×22. The third season really seems to have flown by. It’s been a season of changes. It started out with Jimmy and Sabrina’s engagement after her grandmother died, then Mama was taken away (& returned), Jimmy & Sabrina’s wedding, and then on the last new episode (a month ago! Stupid FOX…), the Chances celebrated Hope’s birthday and Sabrina met a new friend—who turned out to be Jimmy’s old girlfriend (who was an ex because Burt & Virginia butted in and worked to break them up without either of them knowing).

raisinghope328bsmallI’m so glad the show’s been picked up for another season. The Chance family amuses me to no end, so I can’t wait to see how wrong the show gets next season!

On tonight’s 1-hour season finale, “Burt Mitzvah – The Musical/Mother’s Day,” Burt’s parents (guest stars Shirley Jones and Lee Majors) come to town with the surprising news that he actually is Jewish. So Burt takes a musical crash course in his newfound heritage to prepare for the Bar Mitzvah he never had. Then, it’s a Mother’s Day to remember as Burt and Barney take a road trip to Maw Maw’s childhood home and discover that her mother may still be alive. Multiple generations of crazy gather under one roof.

See how funny Jewish Burt is and whether or not Maw Maw isn’t the oldest lady in the family tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Raising Hope @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell.

greysanatomy329smallGrey’s Anatomy has been around the block a few times, so it needed something to shake it up—this story line involving the doctors owning the hospital is just what it’s been needing. At first, I was sceptical about whether or not this would come across as cheesy, but I’ve been impressed with the new avenues this has opened up for the show.

Last episode, we watched Alex and his patient conspire to make Jo’s boyfriend look like a fool. It worked for the most part until he clued in then proceeded to rub it in Alex’s face that he was the one who got to go home with Jo later. I find Jason to be annoying and can’t wait until Jo gives into her feelings for Alex. We also got to see Callie and Arizona finally rekindle their romance, which has been so long overdue. That massage that Callie gave Arizona was exactly what was needed to soften her up to some alone time. Finally, my favorite part was watching as Derek became the hero of the day when he helped a worried father come to terms with not stressing about things we don’t know the outcome of yet. Wise words indeed.

On tonight’s episode, “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” a gas tanker explodes on a highway, resulting in multiple injuries; Jo and Meredith try to help a frantic woman, whose child has a mysterious illness; Alex is forced to work with Jo’s boyfriend. Sarah Chalke guest stars.

To see if the doctors can handle these cases, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomy @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Scandal, The Vampire Diaries, and 1600 Penn.

projectrunwaysmallI’m still very much enjoying this season of Project Runway, and last week was especially great. With the Lord and Taylor challenge, it was interesting to see some very questionable designs going down the runway (so boring and blah for almost all the garments). So far, Michelle had been given the “bad girl” edit, and suddenly, she was the most together and smart in the whole work room. And Samantha was so gracious in her exit from the show.

On tonight’s episode, “The Art of Fashion,” after looking for inspiration at the Guggenheim in New York, the remaining designers imagine new print designs for their latest garments, which leaves one designer in tears and others fighting. Designer Tracy Reese and Rachel Roy guest judge.

See the 90-minute new episode tonight on Lifetime at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Project Runway @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching American Idol and The Vampire Diaries.
