If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/10/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Megan’s Choice

chicagofire1110smallI’m a sucker for emotional moments on a show while it still has moments of excitement. Chicago Fire has had all those moments lately, moving it to the top of my must-see list quickly. Last week, we watched as Casey and Dawson lost their baby after she was rushed into surgery for a miscarriage and internal bleeding. It was heartbreaking to watch, but I loved the end, where Casey assured Dawson that they were back together because he loved her and needed her, not because of the baby. On the arson case, the missing files were recovered, and it was discovered that it was Duff who had stolen the files because he needed money. His guilt caused him to try to commit suicide, but Severide saved his life. Through this all, we got to see the firehouse yet again band together to take care of each other, showing us all why this is the house to be in. As a side note, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD were both renewed for next season yesterday. Yay!

On tonight’s episode, “Regarding this Wedding,” after a fire ruins a neighborhood wedding, Boden steps up to host the ceremony at the firehouse. That’s much to the chagrin of his boss, Chief Riddle, whose political aspirations have caused friction from within the firehouse. Meanwhile, Dawson, who returns to the house, also butts heads with Riddle over her ability to perform and is forced to defend herself despite Boden’s support. Severide finds himself fighting for his way back to his old position, and Capt. Patterson is caught between loyalty toward leadership and loyalty to his colleagues.

To see if Boden can stand against the powers that be to maintain his house, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: NOLA, Chopped, The Voice, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Scream Queens, Limitless, and Wicked City.

ncis1110smallLast week’s NCIS was hysterical – if you ignore the murder, of course. When a retired Navy lieutenant commander was killed, Ducky was forced to reveal his participation in a secret society that solves old cases. The funny part was the other members of the group. Jessica Walters played Judith McKnight, who flirted with every man from NCIS she came across. Todd Louiso played Lyle Waznicki, an annoying member of the group. And Richard Riehle played Walt Osorio, who was the curmudgeon. Overall, they were hysterical. It wasn’t all fun and games, though. Abby was responsible for the evidence used to convict the murder victim’s son of murder 16 years before. It wasn’t really anything she did wrong, just that the hair analysis was deeply flawed. She was freaking out, especially that it could have meant that more than just that one case could have been wrong. In the end, she was the one to help prove the incarcerated man’s innocence and got him out of prison.

I’m so excited for tonight’s episode. One of my favorite characters/relationships in this show’s history was Jeanne Benoit and her relationship with Tony. It didn’t last long, but there was just something about it that was too sweet. She broke it off with him when she found out he was undercover to prove that her father was a major bad guy. But they both had big feelings for one another, and that was never truly resolved. She’s back tonight, and I can’t wait to see what happens when they see each other for the first time in a long time.

On tonight’s episode, “Saviors,” Tony is reunited with his ex-girlfriend, Jeanne Benoit, when insurgents in Sudan attack a group of volunteer doctors, including her husband. Tony and McGee travel to the crime scene for the joint murder and kidnapping case and join the search for the missing doctors. Jon Cryer and Scottie Thompson guest star.

See what happens in Sudan tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Grandfathered, MasterChef Canada, NCIS: NOLA, Chicago Fire, & Chrisley Knows Best.

donny1110smallTonight, USA Network’s Chrisley Knows Best returns for the second half of its third season and is joined by new scripted comedy Donny! (Well, Chrisley is probably scripted as well, but this one admits it). The series is written and produced by ad-man/TV personality Donny Deutsch, who stars as a fictionalized version of himself. The character Donny is a talk show host and single father, and this satirical comedy follows the insanity Donny deals with at work, with crazy guests and topics, as well as in his personal life as he maneuvers the dating world while also trying to take care of his children Coco (Fiona Robert) and Jagger (Jacob Thomas Anderson). And helping him navigate through his busy day is assistant Pam (Emily Tarver, Best Week Ever). The series also stars Meera Kumbhani (Weird Loners), Hailey Giles (2040), Jessica Renee Russell, and Shannon Patricia O’Neill, and it looks like there will also be some fun guest stars, like Christie Brinkley.

From the trailer, it looks like this show should be a lot of fun and will pair well with Chrisley Knows Best. I don’t really know anything about the real-life Donny Deutsch – I have never really watched CNBC – but I’m really looking forward to checking out the fictional version of him tonight to see if this series is as hilarious as it appears in the trailer!

On tonight’s episode, “A Sext Ruined My Life!” Donny is snared in a sexting scandal after preaching about the dangers of sexting on his talk show.

Check out the series premiere tonight on USA Network at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, The Muppets, Fresh Off the Boat, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Grandfathered, The Grinder, Scream Queens, The Flash, iZombie, and Chrisley Knows Best.
