If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/13

The only thing I like about college basketball is that it makes my TV schedule a little more manageable at the end of March. It’s nice to get some reruns to give me time to catch up on my TiVo backlog (especially before the torrent of new stuff starting/ending this Saturday and Sunday night!). If you don’t watch basketball, there’s not a whole lot on tonight, but don’t worry, we didn’t let that stop us from finding some great suggestions.

1600penn328smallTonight, 1600 Penn finishes out its season with two new episodes. In last week’s pair of episodes, Skip finally graduated college, Becca revealed to D.B. that she had dated Marshall, and Dale and Emily tried to add a little spark back into their marriage. I was really happy that the show went the route of Becca realizing that she really did want D.B. and that her relationship with Marshall was a thing of the past. These two are really great together, and I hope it stays that way, because it’s highly likely that tonight’s two episodes will be the final two of the series. This is such a fun show, and I really wish more Neilsen families were watching!

On tonight’s first episode, “Bursting the Bubble,” a foreign princess visits the White House to attend an annual peace gala and asks Skip to be her escort. Meanwhile, Becca tests D.B.’s parenting skills; and Emily looks to reconnect with old friends.

And in the season finale, “Marry Me, Baby,” President Gilchrist accidentally calls the legality of his marriage into question during an interview with Larry King (playing himself), so Skip tries to resolve the situation. Meanwhile, Becca and D.B. receive surprising news.

Tune in to the see the final two episodes of the season (& possibly series) tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c & 9:31/8:31c. Learn where to find episodes online of 1600 Penn @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Raising Hope, Archer, Legit, and Nathan for You.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/7/13

I was away last weekend in New York City for the my college roommate’s wedding. The reception was at the same venue used for a wedding reception in the season one finale of Girls (or so I was told, several times—I never actually made it past the second episode). Since I got back, I’ve been madly trying to catch up on the stockpile of last week’s TV that I couldn’t catch up with over the weekend. At least this week has been fairly light! We’ve got some tips to help you decide between tonight’s slimmer-than-usual TV choices.

legit37smallLast week, I recommended Archer, so this week, I’m going to recommend its FX comedy partner, Legit. The series stars Jim Jefferies playing a version of himself—an Australian stand-up comic living in America, seeking more legitimacy in his life and career. Last week, Jim was turned down for the role of “hot guy” after he removed his shirt at the audition. He sought advice from Andy Dick, who gave him some acting tips and suggested he see a personal trainer to get in shape. However, Jim’s laziness quickly rubbed off on the trainer, who soon found himself completely out of shape.

Legit is a series that really surprised me. I had no idea what the show was going to be about when it first premiered, but I enjoyed the premise. While it started off a bit crass, it has developed into a really fun comedy with a lot of heart. I find myself really rooting for these characters!

On tonight’s episode, “Hoarders,” Jim arranges an intervention after discovering that Janice has become a hoarder.

To see if Jim can clean up Janice’s act, tune in to FX at 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Legit @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Community, 1600 Penn, Archer, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, King of the Nerds, and Nathan for You.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/18/12

I’m still trying to catch up on all of the TV shows I missed while at the Syfy Digital Press Tour this weekend, but it was so worth it. I had a great time hanging out with some fellow bloggers and the casts of Haven, Being Human, Defiance, and Warehouse 13. It was also fun to see the Warehouse 13 and Defiance sets. I will write up my adventures soon, but in the meantime, TV goes on, and there’s a lot of stuff we recommend you check out tonight.

It seems like the only things I watch on the Food Network these days are competition series, and tonight, one of my favorites, Sweet Genius, returns for its third season. This series is like Chopped, if it had three dessert rounds and Willy Wonka serving as both host and the judging panel. In the first season, the contestants competed in Chocolate, Frozen, and Cake rounds. In the second season, the Frozen round was replaced by Candy. I’m interested to see how the quirky Chef Ron Ben-Israel mixes things up this season!

In tonight’s episode, “Cuckoo Genius,” a cute canine inspires chocolate desserts that are concocted with a breakfast food and bland bread. Later, peanuts and a sweet drink are used; and in the final round the remaining chefs work with an aromatic grass.

See how crazy the competition gets tonight on Food Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Sweet Genius @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Last Resort, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, Up All Night, The Office, Parks and Recreation, The League, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

Thursday is the night where you want to settle in for some relaxation after a long work week. Thursday night TV is the cure for all that has been ailing you all week long. It packs the extra punch of laughs and energy you need in order to carry you into the weekend. If you’re looking for drama, you’ve got plenty to tune in to, like The Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, or Prime Suspect. If you’re looking for comedy, you’ve got Community, The Big Bang Theory, and The Office. Thursday night has the cure-all, so park yourself on the couch and get into weekend mode with a smile on your face!

It took a while for the show to hit its stride in season one, but Parks and Recreation has really hit all the right high notes thereafter. If you’re not watching this belly achingly funny show, you’re missing out on some of the best comedy and laughs. This show is so hilarious, you really can’t even pick out which character tickles your funnybone the most. The cast, the writing, the chemistry—it all delivers, and then some! You can’t miss a moment of the show, because if you do, you’re going to miss at least five pop culture references. Keep your eyes glued to the TV and your butt parked on the couch and don’t miss a moment of this guilty pleasure show.

Tonight, in retaliation to Ron’s “guys only” wilderness group, Leslie takes all of the women on an adventure weekend. Ben is forced into joining Donna and Tom for a day of relaxation, and Chris spends time with Jerry.

Tune in at 8:30/7:30c to NBC for an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

The designers are dwindling down, and fashion must come first! Unfortunately, some designers seem more concerned about being at each other’s throat than being concerned about making it work! You’re either fashion forward, or you’re fashion road kill. At this time, the designers can’t afford to have one slip up, or as Heidi says…they’ll be out! Actress Rose Byrne and designer Rachel Roy both serve as guest judges on tonight’s Project Runway!

Tonight, the designers plug into computer technology in order to help them create some signature fabric designs in a challenge that comes with quite a twist. Wielding video cameras, the designers will also venture out into the city in order to capture the stories behind their inspirations.

Tune in at 9/8c to Lifetime for an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of Project Runway @ Clicker.
