If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/14/14

Welcome to a new week for TV. There are a ton of finales this week because we’re gearing up to the new fall season—which actually begins this week with a few shows. As for tonight, we’re here to give you our recommendations out of the myriad of choices, so check it out!

Jenny’s Choice

unforgettable914smallTonight is two new episodes of Unforgettable, which includes the season finale. I’m really very sad about that because I love this show. It hasn’t been renewed yet, but I have my fingers crossed that it’ll be back next summer! Last week, a woman who worked for a famous matchmaker was killed. But they kept uncovering secrets, which led to more suspects and motives. My favorite part was seeing Carrie use her memory to talk to the men at the matchmaker’s place, convincing them one by one that they knew her and getting them to leave to “meet her” somewhere, until the owner finally agreed to give them the info they were searching for.

I’d love to see Carrie & Al get together—or at least share a kiss!—before the end of the season, but we’re down to the last chance, and I’m not sure it’s going to happen. She’s been seeing the Secret Service guy, and while he isn’t a bad guy, I’m a huge Al & Carrie shipper, darnit! So I’ve got my fingers crossed, but I’m not holding my breath…

Finally, CBS is upping the start times for their Sunday night shows by 30 minutes, which means hopefully we won’t have to wait—or at least as long—because of football overruns, so pay attention to the time below!

On tonight’s first episode, “Moving On,” Carrie and Al delve into the disturbing – and dangerous – world of celebrity obsession when a television star is found murdered in his dressing room. Then on the season finale, “DOA,” Carrie is unable to utilize her perfect memory when an assassin doses her with a deadly poison that attacks her brain, leaving Al on a desperate hunt for the antidote.

See how the season ends and if we get some Carrie & Al coupledom tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rachael vs Guy: Kids Cook-Off, The Great Food Truck Race, Cutthroat Kitchen, Hungry Investors, & Pressure Cooker.

witchesofeeastend914smallSundays just wouldn’t be as fabulous without a little magic on our TV screens, and Witches of East End definitely delivers that, plus romance and drama. I loved this show from the beginning, and while there have been a few moments where the plot slowed, overall I find it intriguing and exciting. There are plenty of love triangles on the show, which are mostly created by forbidden love. One of my favorite pairings is Freya and Killian, because even if being together will end the same in every life, it’s hard not to be with the man you love. Unfortunately, Eva is married to Killian, and she has been using some potions to keep him tied to her. I hope the spell breaks finally and then Killian can be with Freya—hopefully with a different outcome this time.

On tonight’s episode, “Smells Like King Spirit,” Tarkoff takes revenge against Frederick. Freya confronts Killian, while Ingrid gives Dash an ultimatum. Wendy and Tommy’s relationship proves dangerous. Joanna takes action to protect her family.

To see what becomes of the ladies tonight, tune in to Lifetime at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Rachel vs Guy: Kids Cook-Off, Cutthroat Kitchen, and The Strain.

americandad914smallTonight, American Dad returns, as FOX burns off two of the three unaired episodes they had left over from last season. It’s great to see that FOX will at least be airing these episodes, and on the show’s original night as part of the Animation Domination lineup. This move by FOX is also a great reminder that the series will be moving to TBS in October for the premiere of its eleventh season! While Family Guy will probably always be my favorite, I have always had a great time whenever I watch this other Seth MacFarlane series as well, and I’m happy to see that it will continue on!

On tonight’s first episode, “Roger Passes the Bar,” a heart attack compels Roger to sell his bar to a restaurant chain and forces him to move in with Greg and Terry. And then in “A Boy Named Michael,” a comely new neighbor offers Steve and his friends a salacious offer in return for doing her housework.

Check out the 1-hour double episode tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Strain, Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, and The Great Food Truck Race.
