If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/21/12

It’s been an exhausting weekend – first, I helped my brother move. Then I drove back and forth between three different hardware stores, purchasing/assembling/disassembling/returning replacement gas grill burners until I found one that fit my grill. So I’m kind of happy that this week is relatively light on new TV… I still have a lot of finales to catch up on!

Tonight, after 8 seasons, House finally comes to an end. Last week, House tried to convince Wilson to resume his chemo treatments so they could have more time together. However, in the end, they both decided to just enjoy the final 6 months. But shortly afterwards, House was told that his most recent shenanigans at the hospital had violated his parole and that he would need to return to prison to serve the rest of his sentence. So where do we go from here? Will House somehow avoid prison? Or will Wilson change his mind about the chemo so that he will have time with House once he is released? How will it all come to an end? (I recently participated in a Q&A with creator David Shore to discuss the series and tonight’s finale. You can find the write-up here.)

Tonight, FOX is airing a special 2-hour House finale event, starting with a one-hour series retrospective, “Swan Song,” which includes highlights from the series and interviews with cast members and producers. And in the finale, “Everybody Dies,” House treats an ailing drug addict, which leads him to sift through his life, speculating on his future and exploring his personal demons.

Don’t miss the end to an amazing run on FOX starting at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of House @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Eureka. (Wow – only 2 shows!)

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/31/11

Zzzzzzz… Good gravy, this week is almost so boring, it’s putting me to sleep. Seriously! It’s almost like a huge culture shock going from 15+ shows a night to record/watch, down to … well, tonight, I have 3, but other nights this week? 0 or 1… It’s crazy. Luckily, the summer season gets in full swing starting next week (with an early nod tomorrow to the new Franklin & Bash on TNT), so the ho hum slow schedule won’t last long! As for tonight, check out what we think you should be watching. 🙂

One of my family’s favorite things to do together is sit down and watch TV as a family. My 13 year old spends more time outside with friends than he does with us (he left at 7:00 this morning for a 15 day trip with his best friend & his friend’s grandparents, for goodness sakes!). So when he decides he wants to spend time with us watching television and playing card or board games, we certainly don’t argue! One of our favorite shows to watch together during the summer premieres tonight.

America’s Got Talent is always fun to watch, because it’s not just your run of the mill singing or dancing competition. There are all sorts of fun, crazy, and interesting people willing to show off their talents (or lack thereof!), such as magicians, contortionists, ventriloquists, and jugglers, in addition to some amazing acrobats, singers, and dancers. Tonight kicks off the 6th season, hosted by Nick Cannon, and judged by Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan, and Howie Mandel.

Don’t miss the 2-hour premiere tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of America’s Got Talent @ Clicker.
