If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/6/13

Welcome back, everyone! We hope everyone had a great couple of weeks and enjoyed the holidays. Did you get caught up on all the shows crowding your DVR? We did. Something like eight episodes of Person of Interest and six of Elementary in addition to odds and ends…we cut it down to only 35 recordings. Woohoo. *laugh* Of course, this week starts back with a lot of new TV, which means it’ll fill again pretty quickly. But that’s okay…it just means we’ll have plenty to watch! So check out what we all think you should be watching or recording to fill up your time tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

Two of my favorite people to watch on the Food Network (& in her case, on her show on ABC) are Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri. I know RR annoys some people, but I love her. 😀 Last season, Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off was incredibly fun to watch. I couldn’t decide who to root for most of the time, but I loved that Lou Diamond Phillips won, and Coolio shocked the heck out of me with how good he was. This season will hopefully be just as much fun, and there are definitely some characters this time around! Chilli (from the group TLC), Cornelia Guest, Dean McDermott, and figure skater Johnny Weir are Team Guy, and Carnie Wilson, Hines Ward, Kathy Najimy, and Gilbert Gottfried are Team Rachael.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Show Must Go On,” the teams must cook a prix fixe menu for a dinner theater and perform a skit for the patrons. (A prix fixe menu is simply a collection of pre-determined items presented as a multi course meal at a set price.)

Don’t miss the competition tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/5/12

It’s the start of another great week in television, and tonight we’re getting off to a slow start. There isn’t a whole lot of new television on tonight because of something called Super Bowl XLVI, so it’s only Kyle and me bringing you suggestions. You can be honest, though… W’re all that really matters. 🙂 On that note, let’s see what brilliance we’re bringing to you.

The Voice returns for its second season right after Super Bowl XLVI, and I’m really excited. I know there are a lot of talent shows on the air and we are being bombarded with singers, but I love the format of The Voice. The coaches have a great chemistry, and the only one of the four that I don’t enjoy is Christina. She just drives me crazy. That said, I’m looking forward to watching Adam and Christina bicker back and forth, because it’s amusing. 🙂

On tonight’s premiere, the “blind auditions” are held in front of the celebrity panel of coaches, including Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, and Blake Shelton, who each hand pick 12 vocalists for their individual teams. The strongest vocalists from across the country compete to be selected by one of the coaches and fight for a chance to win the title of being named “The Voice.” Learn where to find episodes online of The Voice @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/8/12

It’s the start of a new week…and I am starting it with a broken laptop. My down arrow key popped off last night, and we can’t get it back on. My husband is going to take another look tomorrow when he’s more awake, but…I’m going to be REALLY pissed off if I have to send it in and get it replaced, cause we just don’t have the money for that. BAH! Still, some great stuff on tonight, so at least there’s that!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I’m a huge fan of John Grisham’s books, and one of my favorite movies is The Firm. So when I heard it was coming to television, I was thrilled. It’s not a remake of the book/movie, which is kind of what makes it even more interesting. The show continues the story of attorney Mitchell McDeere and his family 10 years after the events of the film and novel. As a young associate, McDeere brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert, & Locke, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob – and his life was never the same. After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection program, Mitch (Josh Lucas, J. Edgar), his wife Abby (Molly Parker, Deadwood), and daughter Claire (Natasha Calis, The Possession) now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future – only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere. The show also stars Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing), Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), & Shaun Majumder (Detroit 1-8-7).

Check out the 2-hour series premiere tonight on NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Firm @ Clicker.
