If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/14/12

I’m sorry this is up so late, but it couldn’t be avoided because I had to edit a last-minute manuscript for work yesterday, so I’m running behind on everything I usually do Saturday. Oops. 🙂 But here’s what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉

I LOVED last week’s season premiere of Halloween Wars on Food Network. It just amazes me the creations these teams can come up with. The clowns were every degree of scary and crazy you can imagine. The right team went home, so I was thrilled. Tonight should be another good episode. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

On tonight’s episode, “Battle of the Vampire Killer,” four remaining teams made up of a pumpkin carving expert, cake artist, and candy craftsman must capture an epic battle in which a vampire killer slays his prey. In the end, one team will be eliminated. Tonight’s guest judge is Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara on Tru Blood.

See the amazing work tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Halloween Wars @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Cupcake Wars, The Amazing Race, The Mentalist, Iron Chef America, & Copper.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/30/12

Yay! It’s a new week on the crazy train that is fall TV. We get a bit of a break mid-week because of the political debate, but not much of one. That’s ok, though… I’m loving all the great episodes so far! Tonight is a really busy night of premieres plus lots of other great new episodes, so check out what the four of us think you should be watching.

Last season’s finale of The Mentalist was suspenseful & shocking from beginning to end. It started six months after Patrick Jane was dismissed from the CBI and ended with Wainwright dead and Red John once again having escaped the grasp of Jane & the CBI, with the addition of the FBI this time around. Obviously, Jane has to stay with the CBI, but how has his time away changed him? Tonight’s season premiere should go a long way to answering that…I hope. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “The Crimson Ticket,” while Jane tries to decipher Lorelei’s connection to Red John, the CBI team is forced to partner with the FBI to solve the murder of a hotel employee. Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) returns as Lorelei Martins, Polly Walker (Rome) guest stars as Senior FBI Agent Alexa Schultz, and Ivan Sergei (Gravity) guest stars as FBI Agent Gabe Mancini.

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mentalist @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Cupcake Wars, The Great Food Truck Race, & Copper.

Wow… The last few days have been absolutely cray-cray for renewals! Maybe it’s just me, but a lot more shows seem to have been renewed this year than I can remember in previous years. A handful had already been canceled, and there were obviously already some (Chuck, House, Desperate Housewives etc) that were ending this season completely. We’re waiting to hear about a dozen shows, give or take a few, and aside from a couple of cancellations, there haven’t been huge disappointments. I know fans of GCB, The Secret Circle, & Missing especially were shocked and disappointed, but there was tons of great news, as well, such as a full 22-episode renewal order for Happy Endings and renewals (even with shortened seasons) of most of the NBC Thursday comedies. To keep updated easily on what has and hasn’t been renewed, check out TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard. Now… On to what we think you should be watching at the start of this BUSY week of finales! (Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and mom stand-ins out there!)

Like I mentioned the other day, I’m a fiend for cooking competition shows on Food Network especially, and one of the biggest and most fun is Food Network Star, which premieres tonight. Normally, the competitors are split into teams but there are no coaches. This year, the show is switching things up a LOT. Not only will the group be split into three teams, but each team will have a “coach.” In the past, Bobby Flay & Giada De Laurentiis have been judges on the show, but this season, they have been joined by Alton Brown, and the three of them will each be coaching a team to success on camera and in the kitchen. I think it will be a VERY interesting change-up to the show and should make for some fun times.

I’m not sure who I want to win – which competitor or which judge. lol I do recognize at least one of the contestants. Michele Ragussis was a competitor on Chopped and competed on 24 Hour Restaurant Battle, which she and her teammate won. I think she’ll be a fierce competitor for Bobby Flay. I guess we’ll see if her being somewhat known on Food Network already gives her an advantage or a disadvantage among the other competitors. You can tweet along with the show and show your support for your favorite judge & team with the hashtags: #Star (for the show), and for the judges, #TeamAlton, #TeamBobby, or #TeamGiada.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Impossible Beginnings,” mentors Alton Brown, Bobby Flay, and Giada De Laurentiis welcome 15 new hopefuls to join their teams. Chef Robert Irvine challenges the finalists to creat pop-up restaurants with a small budget and a limited amount of time.

Don’t miss the excitement tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Food Network Star @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching the Desperate Housewives finale, the series premiere of Invention Hunters, & the champions competition on Cupcake Wars.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/12/12

It’s the start of a new week, which is both good and bad. Good, because it means lots of great new TV, but bad, cause it means it’ll soon be time to go back to work. It’s not time yet, though. We still have the rest of today to relax, and there’s plenty on tonight to help us do just that, so check out what we think you should be watching tonight.

I’m so excited for tonight’s Worst Cooks in America. I loved both seasons before this, with Anne Burrell going up first against Bo MacMillan and then against Robert Irvine. I love Anne, and I was rooting for her in seasons 1 & 2, but I like Bobby Flay, too, so this season, I think I will just have to watch and see who I like best out of the contestants before I declare my favorite…although I have to say, I’m tempted to declare myself Team Bobby, just to mess with Kyle. 😉

If you haven’t seen this show before, it pits Anne against Bobby, each leading a team of eight “recruits” in a grueling eight-week boot camp designed to transform these culinary disaster-makers into competent cooks. A $25,000 grand prize will be awarded to the winning contestant who achieves the most progress and best performance, in addition to bragging rights and victory for their culinary mentor. It’s a lot of fun seeing almost all of the contestants go from horrendous to at least passable, with some even excelling in the kitchen!

On tonight’s episode, “Best of the Worst,” the 16 contestants display their signature dishes to Anne and Bobby in the hopes of making an impression. The Chefs instruct the new candidates on how to effectively prepare a delicious breakfast meal.

Figure out who you are rooting for tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Worst Cooks in America @ Clicker.

There’s not much else on for me tonight, but I will also be watching Cupcake Wars.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/29/12

Whoever said that weekends were for rest didn’t have kids! It’s been one thing after another; however, I did get a great trip to IKEA. I love that store. 🙂 It’s like a happy drug, I swear. Of course, the thing that makes me happiest is new television, so let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

I have noticed a few of my fellow TV journalists being on the fence lately about their love of Once Upon a Time. Well, that’s not me. This girl is over the fence and standing far on the side of LOVING this show. Every week, I find myself pulled deeper and deeper into their world. I was squealing like a school girl when Mary Margaret and David kissed last week. It was amazingly hot. Unfortunately, if the mayor (aka Evil Queen) has anything to say, there is going to be nothing but drama.

On tonight’s episode, “Fruit of the Poisonous Tree,” a dejected Sidney enlists the aid of Emma to help uncover evidence that could expose Mayor Regina as the corrupt person she really is to the townspeople of Storybrooke; and Mary Margaret and David continue their secret rendezvous while trying to figure out a way to unleash their unrequited love. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale land that was, King Leopold (Richard Schiff, The West Wing), who is the father of Snow White and married to the Evil Queen, stumbles upon a magic lamp and is granted three wishes by a Genie – who warns the king to be careful what he wishes for.

To allow your mind to frolic in fairytales tune into ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Once Upon a Time @ Clicker.
