If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/15/14

Last Wednesday, I got my new laptop. (Which is great, btw!) Now, 6 days later, my now-16yo got his first laptop. He got money for birthday & Christmas, and between that and money he’s saved, he had enough to pay the majority of it. We kicked in a little as part of his birthday present. So that’s been our night…setting it all up. But enough about my life… Here’s what we’re recommending on a great night of television!

Jenny’s Choice #1

meljoey115smallTonight is the winter premiere for ABC Family’s Melissa & Joey. I’m SO excited for the 2nd half of this season. On the last episode (not counting the Christmas ep!), Mel, Joe, & the kids were in New Jersey, visiting Joe’s family. Mel & Joe ended up spending a…romantic night together, and then Mel kind of ran scared, leaving Joe and the kids to get home together on their own. Lennox and Ryder convinced him to go after her, so he packed them up and they left. When they arrived home, Austin was there with Mel, wanting to give their relationship another try. For Mel and Joe shippers (like myself—surprise! 😉 ), it was killer. But I have faith (& I won’t spoil and say why! LOL).

On tonight’s episode, “A Decent Proposal,” in picking up where the summer cliff-hanger left off, Joe rushes home to tell Mel that he has feelings for her after their romantic night together in New Jersey. When he arrives, he’s shocked to find Austin (guest star Trevor Donovan) has shown up and wants to give his relationship with Mel another try. Deciding he can’t stay and watch them fall in love all over again, Joe quits. Meanwhile, Lennox plots to get Joe and Mel together, and Ryder gets sick from his own cooking.

Find out if Mel makes a decision regarding her love life tonight on ABC Family at 8/7c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/11/13

Holy icicles Batman, it’s really cold here today! I believe it’s about -23 Celsius here with the windchill, which is about -9 Fahrenheit; so yes, it’s freezing! While I cuddle under my blankets and sip a warm cup of tea, let’s see what we all should be watching tonight.

kellyclarksonchristmassmallWhat better way to fight the blustery cold outside than to watch Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale? I have adored Kelly since her season on American Idol, (you know, back when American Idol was still worth watching? 🙂 ), and I have followed her career along the way. Last year, I had the chance to see this beautiful girl in concert, and let me tell you, it was FANTASTIC!

Tonight, she’s joined by Blake Shelton, Reba, & Trisha Yearwood to sing some holiday songs straight from her new Christmas album, “Wrapped in Red.” There will also be some appearances by other celebrities, including Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, and Ken Jeong. Kelly and her guests will celebrate the season with a comedic take on a traditional Christmas morality tale. I for one am super excited!

To get your holiday dose of this fabulous girl, tune in to NBC following The Sing-Off at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Sing-Off, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, The X Factor, CSI, Super Fun Night, and Top Chef.

I can’t believe that we are in August already, because that means school is just around the corner—it really is the most magical time of the year. 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids, but holy cow, it’s been it’s been a long summer. While I daydream about a kid-free coffee break, let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

masterchef2012smallMasterChef has been taking us on an emotional rollercoaster this season, especially last week. I was sobbing in my living room last week because there was no one there for Krissi. Everyone else’s family member walked out from under the mystery box, and then they showed her a video of her son instead. Poor Krissi looked so heartbroken. On a different note, Krissi and Natasha kicked ass in the sushi challenge—putting Luca in his place. I like Krissi and hope she wins.

On tonight’s episode, “Top 6 Compete,” previously eliminated contestants get the chance to get back in the competition by perfectly frying an egg and preparing a salmon dish.

To see which previous contestant gets to come back, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Top Chef Masters and The Bridge.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/31/13

Welcome to Hump Day! I had a great Tuesday night. It’s one of my favorite nights for TV because I have stuff left over from Monday plus all the great TV. I laughed my way through Whose Line, worried through Rizzoli & Isles, and just generally had a good night. There’s a lot of great TV on tonight, too, on this last day of July, which makes me VERY happy. So check out our recommendations for what you should be watching tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

meljoey731smallI’m a big fan of comedies, and one of my favorite summer comedies is Melissa & Joey. They’re finding a way to make the “Ryder being home schooled” thing work, although I’m not sure WHY they did it. Meanwhile, last week, Mel and Joe learned that Zander and Lennox had already had sex, and when Lennox wrote on her blog about it only being okay, Zander broke up with her. Joe got angry, but it turned out that Zander was mad because she wrote about it. He didn’t break up with her because he’d finally gotten sex from her. That was a really adult story line—and more than a little awkward to watch with my 15yo son, although I guess somewhat appropriate, since we’ve had to deal with what to share and what not to share on Facebook. heh Ryder’s story line about him and his naïve girlfriend was funny, as was meeting her two moms. Watching Ryder trying to play the bad boy was pretty humerous.

I love this show, but I’m hoping we’ll see some movement on the Mel/Joe relationship front soon. Driving me nuts! 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Good Morning Toledo,” Mel and Joe are invited to co-host a week of “Good Morning Toledo,” which Mel thinks will help her earn voters. Their constant bickering on air garners rave reviews with the audience, and they’re an instant hit. But when the secret to their popularity turns out to be talking a little too personally about Lennox and Ryder, they have to decide if fame or family is more important.

See if they make the right decision tonight on ABC Family at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, MasterChef, Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, Hot in Cleveland, Top Chef Masters, Top Shot, The Exes, & The Soul Man.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/10/13

There has been some incredibly insane weather around here, with some parts of Ontario getting a month’s worth of rain in just an hour! This is on top of the flooding in Alberta that recently took place. Our thoughts go out to all who are affected. On a lighter note, let’s see what’s on television tonight.

Megan’s Choice

masterchef2012smallMasterChef has been having a really good season, and I missed it last week. Last episode, we watched the contestants battle it out while cooking for a wedding, and it was an up-and-down situation. In the end, it left Lynn and Jonny competing during the elimination challenge of making macaroons. They are such delicate cookies, and Jonny couldn’t handle being gentle under pressure and he was eliminated. I was sad because I really liked him!

On tonight’s episode, “11 Chefs Compete/10 Chefs Compete,” actress and restaurateur Eva Longoria surprises the contestants and selects Mexican-inspired ingredients for the mystery box challenge. The contestant who creates the most impressive restaurant-quality dish will determine which food basket each of the remaining contestants will receive in the elimination round. Later, in the team challenge, the home cooks hit the beach and cook fish tacos for more than 100 hungry surfers. The surfers will determine the winning team, who will earn a huge surprise: tickets to the 2013 MLB All-Star Game in New York City, airing Tuesday, July 16, on FOX. Meanwhile, the losing team faces a pressure test and must cook a perfect chicken breast three ways. In the end, two more contestants will go home.

To see how your favorite does, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The American Baking Competition, Camp, The Bridge, and America’s Got Talent.
