If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/20/12

It’s halfway through the week and I am watching Hell’s Kitchen while I write this up. So fun to watch Chef Ramsay blow his top at these surprisingly inept chefs. On another topic, MightyText is cool. I can use my computer to send text messages to phones. Very handy when I need to text my kid. LOL Ok, enough about me. Read on to find out what we think you should be watching tonight. 😀

Jenny’s Choice #1

Tonight is the series premiere of The Soul Man, and I’m excited because it looks really fun. From the creators of Hot in Cleveland, The Soul Man revolves around Cedric’s character, Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine, an R&B superstar-turned-minister who takes over as preacher of his father’s church. Niecy Nash (Reno 911) stars as the reverend’s wife, Lolli. The pilot also features John Beasley (Everwood) as his father, Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You) as his younger brother, and Jazz Raycole (My Wife and Kids) as his daughter. The character of Reverend Boyce originated on a second season episode of Hot in Cleveland, in which Cedric guest-starred.

The cast looks fantastic, the previews have been funny, and it’s on TV Land, which has had some big hits for me in terms of original comedies. I’m really looking forward to this one.

On tonight’s episode, “Lost in the Move,” an R&B singer gets a calling to become a minister, so he gives up his superstar lifestyle and moves to St. Louis to become a preacher in his father’s church. The family soon notices that some of their possessions were lost in the move.

See the premiere tonight on TV Land at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Soul Man @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/30/11

Thursdays never looked so good! With the anticipation of the 4th of July coming up, it’s hard to sit still in front of the TV, but Thursday night is going to be a great starter for the weekend, when you tune in to a wonderful lineup of shows! After a long week, nothing can be better than taking it easy by relaxing and enjoying some serious TV down time. Gear up for all new episodes of Thursday night shows you won’t want to miss a moment of. – Lisa

If you’re looking for a brand new show to enter your TV watching lineup that’s going to make your Thursday night blues go away, then Suits is the right choice. Harvey Spector is the best closer in New York City, and he’s on top of his game when it comes to closing mergers, acquisitions, and even divorces. With all of his success, he is offered a promotion to senior partner at his firm, Pearson Harden. However, with the promotion, Harvey will need a large amount of help. His boss, Jessica Pearson, has enlisted him to help hunt down a new associate.

Mike Ross isn’t your average Harvard Law School student…he actually isn’t even enrolled there! That doesn’t stop him though from taking the bar exam for Harvard graduates in order to make a little money on the side. He’s quite the prodigy, as he is phenomenally brilliant. He’s got a photographic memory. If he reads something, he remembers it for life!

When Mike’s grandmother becomes ill, in order to help her, he has to raise a lot of money quickly. Here’s where his pot-dealing best bud comes into play. In a blotched drug deal, Mike has to escape some nasty drug-buying thugs. When he flees the scene, he ends up falling into a round of Harvey Spector’s associate interviews. Mike easily impresses Harvey, and with that, the two become the finest law duo in the toughest law town. Mike gets situated at his new job at Pearson Harden and becomes acquainted with those who will help him and those who may possibly stand in his way.

Tonight, on an all new episode, an open and shut case becomes anything but when Harvey ends up accused of an inappropriate liaison with a married woman. Louis forces Mike to make a very difficult decision, one that could possibly net the firm a very wealthy client, but at the same time cost him Harvey’s respect.

Tune in to USA Network at 10/9c and suit up! Learn where to find episodes online of Suits @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/23/11

It’s Thursday, which has got to be my FAVORITE day of the week this summer. As much as I love everything else airing right now, tonight includes two shows that I’ve been looking forward to for months. It’s a big day, so in addition to Lisa’s & Kyle’s single recommendations, Megan is doing two shows, and I’m doing three… Forgive me? 😉 Now, on to what our picks are!

Jenny’s Choice

I will admit that I have seen tonight’s premiere of Rookie Blue. Last summer, it became an instant hit with me, for a multitude of reasons (not the least of which was the instant chemistry between Missy Peregrym’s Andy and Ben Bass’ Sam!). The entire cast is fantastic. I’ve mentioned it before, but there are some procedurals that focus too much on the cases and give nothing to the personal relationships. There has to be a balance, and Rookie Blue is a great example of that. We see a lot of the new cops and their personal lives, but the cases are always interesting and aren’t generally overshadowed by the personal. Tonight’s premiere is a great example of that. There’s a lot of personal stuff, but the case is good, too. I have to say, though, as you can see from the photo with this part of the post, there is at least one squee-worthy moment for us Sandy fans. 😉

On tonight’s premiere, Andy’s world explodes when a fresh-faced university student is caught in the crossfire during a random concert shooting. Devastated by the seemingly senseless act of violence, she sets out to unravel the motive and track down the shooter — putting her in direct conflict with Division 15′s new detective, Jo Rosati. Meanwhile, as Rosati investigates her own angle on the concert mayhem, sparks fly between her and her former partner, Detective Luke Callaghan.

Don’t miss tonight’s season premiere on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rookie Blue @ Clicker.
