If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/25/13

The weekend is almost upon us. While most of this week has been pretty light as far as new TV goes, May sweeps is almost here and things are ramping back up. Tonight, there’s loads to choose from, and to help you decide what to watch, we’ve got some suggestions.

Kyle’s Choice

givingyouthebusinesssmallTonight, Food Network is kicking off a new reality series called Giving You the Business. Each week, a CEO will pick four stand-out employees and put them to the ultimate test. While running the business, each employee will be given a series of outrageous challenges to overcome—all while the big boss watches on secretly via hidden cameras. At the end, the CEO will choose the strongest of these employees and award them the ultimate prize—the keys to their very own franchise worth up to half a million dollars!

The series kind of sounds like Undercover Boss meets Chef Wanted—I’m sure the candidates will all have some sort of emotional back-story and we’ll learn how the prize would change their lives forever. While I don’t really need yet another show added to my already-busy TV schedule, this one sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to checking it out tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “Pepperoni with a Side of Chaos,” four employees of Famous Famiglia are given a shot at running their own pizzeria franchise.

See the series premiere tonight on Food Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Giving You the Business @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Hannibal, Glee, Tabatha Takes Over, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, Men at Work, The Graham Norton Show, and Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice

thebigbangtheory425smallIt’s been way too long since the last new episode of The Big Bang Theory. Three weeks, people! Eesh! On the last episode, the guys learned there was an open tenure spot after one professor died. While they originall all said they weren’t going to go for it, once one of them decided to, the others decided they would, as well. In the end, all the guys got on the short list—although that’s a story line that will play out over the course of at least another season—if not the series—according to TPTB (the powers that be).

We’re coming up on the end of the season—four episodes, including tonight’s. Will Penny & Leonard stay together? What about Amy & Sheldon? Will they get any closer…physically? And will Raj and his new girl Lucy actually have a conversation? I can’t wait to find out!

On tonight’s episode, “The Closure Alternative,” Sheldon feels lost after one of his favorite TV shows gets canceled too soon and Amy tries to help him get over his compulsive need for closure. Meanwhile, Raj discovers a secret about his new love interest, Lucy.

To see if Amy can comfort Sheldon in his time of need, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Two and a Half Men, Person of Interest, Giving You the Business, Men at Work, & Elementary.

Megan’s Choice

elementary425smallIt’s been a couple weeks since a new episode of Elementary graced our screens, and I am beyond ready for it! This is one of those shows that I was hooked on from the moment I watched the pilot—it’s hard not to love the witty banter between Watson and Holmes.

Last episode, we watched Sherlock and Joan try to solve the murder of a security guard, which was actually done to distract from the theft of some blueprints—for the largest cash vault in New Jersey. In the end, they solved the crime, and Sherlock asked a transgender woman to move into his house until she got back on her feet. This should be interesting.

On this episode, “Dead Man’s Switch,” Sherlock and Joan hunt for the accomplice of a murdered blackmailer, who targeted families of rape victims. Meanwhile, Sherlock resists celebrating his first year of sobriety.

To see if Joan can help help Sherlock acknowledge his accomplishments, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Elementary @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Person of Interest, Scandal, and Giving You the Business.

JJ’s Choice

projectrunwaysmallTonight is the finale of Project Runway, and after last week, I am very curious to see the collections of the remaining designers. I was so glad that Daniel got the boot last week. He hasn’t been up to par with the rest of the designers for quite some challenges and he clearly was the least talented designer (so not fashion-forward). The biggest disappointment was Stanley, who seemed ill-prepared and had quite a boring mini-collection. I’m hoping that Michelle will win, but it will be interesting to see who takes it.

On tonight’s episode, “Finale, Part 2,” Stanley, Michelle, and Patricia show their collection at Fashion Week and we will find out who takes the crown for season 11.

Find out who wins tonight on Lifetime at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Project Runway @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, Community, Glee, and Parks and Recreation.

    Where is the list of all the shows???? The premiers??? The new episodes???? I hate how some days you put that up and others you dont. It use to be up every single day

    • Kyle says:

      Jenny posts those lists every day under the Today on TV category. The “If We Controlled Your Remote” posts are just some of our picks for the night.

      • Jenny says:

        Actually, Kyle, he’s right (although, he could’ve been nicer about it). Today’s post was scheduled… I’m not sure why it didn’t post. I’m putting it up now.

        As for other missed days, I can only say that I’m human and sometimes I forget. Sometimes, like today’s, WordPress doesn’t post it for some reason, and unless someone emails to let me know, I don’t find out it didn’t post until days later when I go back into the admin. I need to check every day, but sometimes I just don’t have time. This isn’t my main job or my only priority. I’m a wife, a mother to a teenager, an editor for an online publishing company, and I do a lot of side editing and some writing. So sometimes, things accidentally get missed.

        When you don’t see it up by noon, you should email me so I can find out what happened. Not ONCE has anyone emailed me to ask where the schedule was. So really, there’s not a lot of room for complaint, imo.
