If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/14

We’re halfway through the week, and it’s not getting any less busy for my television schedule. I love TV, which is a good thing, since my schedule is just getting flooded by so many new episodes and series premieres. Let’s take a look at what’s tying up my attention tonight and what we recommend.

Megan’s Choice

wahlburgerssmallIt’s no secret that I enjoy Donnie Wahlberg on Blue Bloods, so when I heard about Wahlburgers, I was excited! This show is a look at the personal and professional life of Boston chef Paul Wahlberg and his real-life entourage as he prepares to expand his hamburger restaurant business. His entourage includes his family, which just happens to be Mark and Donnie Wahlberg—that is a lot of handsome Boston boys on one show!

On tonight’s series premiere, “Five O’clock is Dinner Time,” Donnie brings girlfriend Jenny McCarthy home to meet his mother and instigates a “sauce-off” between Alma and Paul; Paul works on a special “Burger of the Month” for Jenny.

To see how it goes when Jenny meets Mama Wahlberg, tune in to A&E at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago PD, Super Fun Night, Modern Family, Law & Order: SVU, Duck Dynasty, Suburgatory, CSI, Top Chef, Klondike, and Opposite Worlds.

Jenny’s Choice

chicagopd122smallI wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy Chicago PD, because I hate watching shows about dirty cops, and there was no cop dirtier than Voight when he guest starred on Chicago Fire. But I love Sophia Bush, and I loved Jay & Antonio when they guest starred on Fire, as well, so I wanted to give it a shot. So far, I’m glad I did. Sure, Voight isn’t completely straight and narrow, but so far, he’s done more good than bad. And last week, Antonio’s son was kidnapped. It was heartbreaking watching him and his wife, but the rescue in the end was brilliant. I’m quite enjoying this show and am glad to see Sophia Bush back on my TV.

On tonight’s episode, “Chin Check,” after discovery of large amounts of cop killer ammo, the Intelligence Unit is on a quest to find the source. Voight and team head to a house that’s been associated with a number of top gangs. Events at the search result in Ruzek being encouraged to seek some counseling, which may have lasting repercussions professionally and personally. Meanwhile, Jay’s temper rises when he comes in contact with some unwelcomed people from his past.

Find out if the team can get the bad guys tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Psych, CSI, The Exes, Men at Work, Top Chef, & Wahlburgers.

Kyle’s Choice

workaholicssmallTonight, Workaholics returns to Comedy Central for its fourth season, and the network has paired the series with new show Broad City. While Workaholics follows the misadventures of a trio of twentysomething slacker guys, this new series centers around a pair of twentysomething girls. Broad City comes from executive producer Amy Poehler and stars Upright Citizens Brigade alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as best friends living in New York City. I really enjoy the zaniness of Workaholics, and it sounds like the women of Broad City will be getting up to some equally-crazy antics as well. I’m looking forward to checking out this new series and seeing how this male/female comedy hour works as a whole.

broadcitysmallOn tonight’s Workaholics season premiere, “Orgazmo Birth,” the guys plan a baby shower for Montez’s wife.

And then in the Broad City series premiere, “What a Wonderful World,” Abbi and Ilana resort to desperate and unusual measures to scrape together enough cash for a Lil Wayne concert.

Check out the premieres tonight on Comedy Central at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Super Fun Night, Revolution, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, American Horror Story, Top Chef, Men at Work, Klondike, Psych, and Opposite Worlds.
