If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/22/13

Earlier this week, TiVo released its newest DVR, a six-tuner masterpiece called the Roamio—presumably because it lets you watch your recorded shows remotely on your iPhone or iPad. With the upcoming fall season, having 6 tuners would be any TV addict’s dream—it would be wonderful to never have to worry about conflicting shows ever again! But enough drooling over something I have no plans to buy. Let’s talk about what we recommend you check out tonight (using your now-inferior DVRs).

wilfred822smallI have no idea how the writers of Wilfred come up with these wacky story ideas, but they always end up hilarious. Last week, it was a game of wits between Ryan and Wilfred—each trying to further escalate the mind games being played on the other. What started off with Wilfred trying to trick Ryan into buying him some meatballs from a restaurant from which he was banned escalated into Ryan trying to make Wilfred think he’d had him neutered, to Wilfred pretending to explore his feminine side, to Wilfred trying to neuter Ryan with a knife, and finally, Ryan getting Wilfred to eat some not-quite-meat balls. Once all the mind games were over, Ryan got back to investigating the revelation that it was his sister Kristen who drew the picture of Wilfred as a child. While exploring the drawing for clues, Ryan scratched away a portion to reveal a mysterious symbol.

This season, Wilfred has been introducing some great new unexpected twists and turns while also maintaining the fun. What does this whole turn of events with Ryan’s sister mean? Did she see Wilfred when she was younger, and how about now? Is this some crazy illness that runs in the family? What is this symbol on the drawing, and what does it mean?

On tonight’s episode, “Stagnation,” Wilfred’s obsession with a forbidden love jeopardizes Ryan’s living situation.

Find out who Wilfred’s forbidden love is tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Hollywood Game Night, Burn Notice, Graceland, Supermarket Superstar, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

sullivan2012smallThis season of Sullivan & Son has been just as funny as season one, although I admit to still being confused about Steve’s sister, Susan. In the first season, her mother made comments about her needing to dress better, etc, to attract men. But in the second season, she’s suddenly married with children. I guess the show decided they needed to make that change, but except for a couple of mentions and an episode where her husband was involved in the main story line, we haven’t heard much about her sudden family. So makes me wonder WHY they changed it up. Still, the show is funny, even though it’s racist and juvenile and slightly offensive. *laugh* Last week’s prank war was great, culminating in a fake fall from the roof, which caused a mild heart attack. Tonight is the season finale, which I’m not happy about, but the show’s been renewed for a third season, so I’ll deal. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “Reunited,” the bar’s chances of winning the yearly karaoke contest are threatened when Carol starts dating a handsome singer (guest star Charles Shaughnessy), which makes Owen jealous. Meanwhile, Roy, Susan and Ahmed meet a drunk Ok Cha.

See if too much alcohol gets Ok Cha to let loose tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

rookieblue822smallRookie Blue was so incredible last week. They definitely jumped into the Nick/Andy relationship with both feet. We watched Nick and Andy hang out at the park with Chris’s son Christian—and also watched as Christian got abducted from the park while in their care. That was a sad and stressful moment that in the end led to Chris finding out that Christian wasn’t his actual biological son. At the end of the episode, after the case was wrapped up, we watched Nick tell Andy she was worth waiting for, but then they slept together. Honestly, it was a really cute love scene, and I can’t wait to see them together in a relationship—that is, unless the writers mess it up.

On tonight’s episode, “You Are Here,” a routine drug bust turns into Traci’s first murder case; Swarek, Oliver, Chris, and Dov spend a weekend at Oliver’s cabin; Andy and Sam both have confessions to make.

To see what weighs heavy on their consciences, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

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

Jenny’s Choice #2

hollywoodgamenightsmallOne of my favorite shows each week is Hollywood Game Night. Last week, Aubrey Plaza was BRILLIANT in the bonus round, helping the contestant win the $25,000 and earned $10,000 for her charity. Surprisingly, the “Doo” game wasn’t nearly as good as I’d thought it would be. I’d expected Kristen Chenoweth to absolutely kill that one, but she was…only okay. None of them were great at it. It was still more than hysterically funny, just surprising!

On tonight’s episode, “The Office Party,” two contestants will lead their respective teams of three celebrities, which include Minnie Driver, Max Greenfield, Ellie Kemper, Angela Kinsey, Kal Penn, and Keenan Thompson, in a series of unique party games in hopes of winning the $25,000 grand prize.

Find out which celebrity rocks it tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Burn Notice, Motive, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, Graceland, Owner’s Manual, & Supermarket Superstar.
