If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/2/14

Allergies were kicking my butt yesterday. My eyes itched and burned all day, making me feel tired, even though I wasn’t. I have a feeling today will be more of the same. On a good note, that means less time on the computer and more time watching TV, so it’s not all bad! 😉 Megan’s taking the day off, so check out Kyle’s and my recommendations for what to watch tonight.

hotincleveland72smallLast week on Hot in Cleveland, Joy met her new boss, played by cutie Tim Daly. She fell hard for him immediately, promptly calling her own house phone and leaving a message stating that she’d just met the man she was going to marry. Unfortunately for her, he met Melanie shortly after and fell hard for her, not Joy—so much so that Joy decided to step back and not tell Melanie or Mitch how she felt. Meanwhile, Elka hired a statistics expert to help her out with her campaign, and with his help, she took over as favorite for the city council. And to everyone’s surprise, Victoria was nominated for an Oscar!

On the first of tonight’s two episodes, “People Feeding People,” Melanie gets strong-armed into going on a date with Ross Barkley in order to help Elka get his endorsement for City Council, and while Mitch continues in his efforts to get over Melanie, Joy is forced to hide her feelings for him. Then in the second episode, “Murder House,” during a major storm, the ladies are stuck inside with Victoria’s island boyfriend, Melanie’s downer friend, and Joy’s mother; meanwhile, Elka believes that the ghost of a murdered woman has come back seeking her revenge. Chevy Chase, Tim Daly, & Rob Schneider guest star.

To see how Joy hides her feelings and what craziness ensues at the “murder house,” tune in to TV Land at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cousins Undercover, So You Think You Can Dance, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, Restaurant Stakeout, & Taxi Brooklyn.

taxibrooklyn72smallLast week, NBC premiered the new series Taxi Brooklyn. Detective Cat Sullivan managed to total yet another patrol vehicle while trying to stop some bank robbers, so her chief put her on foot patrol. However, the resourceful Cat made a deal with illegal French immigrant/cab driver Leo—Cat agreeed not to put Leo in a prison cell in exchange for his driving her around. The unlikely pair hit it off and worked well as a team, so well that Cat agreeed to talk to a friend who could possibly fast-track Leo’s immigration. Meanwhile, Cat’s jealous soon-to-be-ex-husband, who also works at the station, contemplated getting Leo deported.

I wasn’t blown away by last week’s Taxi Brooklyn premiere, and the added layer of Cat looking for the person who killed her father was a bit overboard, but I did really like the premise, characters, and main actress (I still miss her as Lexi Grey on Grey’s Anatomy!). And since I’m a big fan of buddy/cop action/comedies, I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of cases this duo take on next.

On tonight’s episode, “Brooklyn Heights,” a notable handbag designer hires Cat to find her missing son, a notorious socialite hell-raiser, in a case that exposes family secrets. Elsewhere, a betrayal leads to Leo’s arrest.

See if Cat can find the missing man and how Cat helps free Leo tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, and Wilfred.
