If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/25/13

I’m back from Comic-Con! I had a great time—the highlight of which was getting to meet the cast of Breaking Bad, and getting their autographs, at a special fan appreciation party this past Sunday. I’m still trying to catch up on my huge backlog of TV from last week, but primetime TV waits for no one. So we’ve got some suggestions as to what you should check out on TV tonight.

childrenshospital2012smallChildrens Hospital returns to the Adult Swim lineup tonight for the start of its fifth season. When we last left the staff, Dr. Blake Downs had been murdered. Is he really dead? And if so, who will replace him? Perhaps an evil twin or maybe a clone? Anything is possible on this series, and I can’t wait to see how they get out of this one—and what character Rob Corddry will be playing this season! I’m really looking forward to an all-new season of total wackiness from this series that manages to pack more laughs into 15 minutes than most sitcoms do in a half hour!

On tonight’s episode, “A New Hope,” the staff moves to an Army base in Japan when the hospital is infested with termites.

Catch the laughs tonight on Adult Swim (Comedy Central) at 11:59/10:59c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Hollywood Game Night, Hell’s Kitchen, Wilfred, The Hero, Summer Camp, Burn Notice, Graceland, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

motive725smallI’m really enjoying Motive. My 15yo son is watching with me, and he’s enjoying it as well. Last week, Detective Flynn went off the reservation, so to speak, when she tracked the killer, a policeman, down and got him to basically confess…which in turn led to him shooting himself in the head there in the middle of his police station. I thought for sure she’d get in trouble back at her own precinct, but she didn’t. I did like how the birth mother brought the little boy to the widow of her son’s father. What we could take away from that was that they would both be in his life, which he needed after his father was killed—by his mother’s father, no less.

On tonight’s episode, “Out of the Past,” after investigating the execution-style slaying of a news shop proprietor with high-level military training, Detectives Flynn and Vega struggle to find the connection to a pediatrician.

Find out why the killer did it tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Burn Notice, Hollywood Game Night, Sullivan & Son, & Graceland.

Megan’s Choice

hellskitchen2013smallI can’t believe it’s time for the season finale of Hell’s Kitchen already. Last week, we watched Cyndi get eliminated, and I was quite sad. Cyndi was actually one of my favorites, but I understand that she just wasn’t up to the job at hand. On the other hand, I really hope it’s Jon that joins Mary in the finals over Ja’nel because I really still do not like Ja’nel. Out of Jon and Mary, I am rooting for Mary because she’s been the underdog from the beginning and she’s really been shining lately.

On tonight’s episode, “2 Chefs Compete; Winner Chosen,” Chef Ramsay announces the final two chefs who will compete for the Hell’s Kitchen title and a life-changing grand prize: a Head Chef position under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace. After Chef Ramsay surprises the chefs with a luxurious trip to Las Vegas, the adventures continue when the chefs compete head-to-head in a live cooking challenge judged by some of the most famous chefs in Los Angeles. With the help of former Hell’s Kitchen contestants, the top two chefs prepare their menus for the most important dinner service of their life. Later, pressure mounts on both teams to execute a flawless dinner service, but in the end, only one chef will be crowned Hell’s Kitchen winner.

To see who takes home the crown, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Rookie Blue, Hollywood Game Night, and Graceland.

hollywoodgamenightsmallOh. My. God. I couldn’t be more enthralled by a game show than I am with Hollywood Game Night. Jane Lynch is an amazing host, and the guests so far have been amazing. They play the game as enthusiastically as us “regular people” do, but they manage to stay themselves (oh my, Lisa Kudrow’s laugh, Matthew Perry’s humour, and Yvette Nicole Brown’s TV knowledge, for instance). This show can continue for a long time, as far as I’m concerned.

On tonight’s episode, “Saturday Night Reunion,” the celebrities include Sean Hayes, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, and Amy Poehler.

Watch who will reach the final round and if they take home the money on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Wipeout and Project Runway.
