If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/18/16

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

royalpains518smallI’m so happy because tonight is the season premiere of Royal Pains. On the season finale last July, all our favorite characters had big story lines. Hank came face to face with his ex-fiance, Nikki. Throughout the course of the episode, we got to see Hank’s memory of their breakup and then watched as he realized he had been remembering it wrong all this time. Maybe he can really move forward now that he isn’t completely blaming Nikki. Poor Divya lost her grandmother, but she also made the decision that she was going to go to school to become a doctor AND she and Raj met up again, and once he said that his marriage was over, he and Divya both admitted they still loved each other, he proposed, and she accepted! And finally… Evan and Paige were all set to adopt a young girl’s baby, but once she went into labor and Paige reunited her with her mother, they realized that Elan was ready to become a mother, so they bowed out of the adoption.

So where do they all go from there? Will Hank find love? Will Divya still be able to work with Hank Med AND go to school to become a doctor, and will she and Raj make a go of it? And what about Paige and Evan? Will they find a baby to adopt or will they get a miracle and be able to have their own? Whatever is coming for them all, I can’t wait to watch and find out!

On tonight’s episode, “Stranger Danger,” Hank treats a politician while Jeremiah enlists Divya’s help. Hank and Evan react very differently when Eddie returns to the Hamptons, and Divya’s future plans hit a roadblock. Henry Winkler guest stars.

Catch the premiere tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rosewood, The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, black-ish, & Chicago PD.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/12/13

It’s been a bit insane around my house—kids injuring themselves, dogs eating foreign objects, and frankly, I’m tired! Tonight, I plan on sitting on the couch and doing absolutely nothing but watching excellent television. Care to join me?

Megan’s Choice

masterchef2012smallTwo doses of Gordon Ramsay a week is definitely a good thing, but MasterChef has become my favorite of the two cooking competition shows this season. What an eventful and exciting start this season is off to! Truth is, the contestants this season are all so talented, but there are also some incredibly difficult personalities. My favorites are Krissi because I love her approach to recipes and her strong attitude; I also love Jonny because he cooks seafood like I would—I love all things seafood. Plus, he’s freaking adorable! As for contestants that I cannot stand, there is one mean girl in the kitchen who makes me want to scream at my television, and that is none other than…NATASHA! Seriously? What is wrong with this girl? There is no denying she can cook, but does she need to be such a complete stuck-up snob while she’s at it? I suppose there has to be at least one on every show, but I really wish she would mess up enough to go home already, because if she ends up winning, it’ll leave a bad taste in my mouth.

On tonight’s episode, “Top 16, Part 1 and 2,” the cooks prepare a steak meal for firefighters; the challenge losers cook eggs benedict; four cooks prepare burger dishes at Gordon Ramsay BurGR in Las Vegas.

To see who can’t cook an egg to save their bacon, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The American Baking Competition, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, and Necessary Roughness.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/12/12

I love my non-job of running this site for many reasons. But being able to chat with the celebs & TV showrunners, being able to catch show premieres early (this week, it was NCIS, Hawaii Five-0, & the series premiere of Vegas on CBS—and all were great. I loved the new show a lot more than I’d anticipated. The cast is phenomenal!), and last but not least, bringing you the schedules each week & daily plus what we think you guys should be watching each day is my favorite reason. Now that I’ve said all that, go on… See what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉

I’m so excited about tonight’s premiere of the new series Guys with Kids. I always love shows like this, and it’s brought to us by Jimmy Fallon, so it’s worth giving a chance (or two) to before judging it. Here’s the premise: The show is about three 30-something dads who try to hold on to their youth as they face the responsibilities of having kids. Thankfully, Gary (Anthony Anderson, Law & Order), Chris (Jesse Bradford, The West Wing) and Nick (Zach Cregger, Friends with Benefits) have each other to help navigate the highs and lows of fatherhood—while still trying desperately to remain dudes. Balancing work or staying at home, happily married or happily divorced, taking care of the “littles” while maintaining a social life is a daily challenge. Whether it’s hosing down their babies in the kitchen sink or hitting the bar strapped with “babybjorns,” these guys are taking on fatherhood in ways no one has ever seen before. Nick’s and Gary’s wives—Emily (Jamie-Lynn Sigler, The Sopranos) and Marny (Tempestt Bledsoe, The Cosby Show) also offer their own parenting advice. Dads today are more involved in their kids’ lives than ever, and these guys are no exception. No tantrum is too loud, no diaper is too dirty—Nick, Chris, and Gary are up to the challenge.

Besides Jimmy Fallon, Charlie Grandy (from NBC’s The Office) is also an exec producer/creator, & Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz (from Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place & American Dad) are executive producers. And finally, Emmy-nominated director Scott Ellis (Modern Family & 30 Rock) is the director. Those are some big name comedy backgrounds, so I’m hoping that translates into something great. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when Chris is asked out to a Knicks game, he must find a babysitter without his ex-wife Shelia (Erinn Hayes) finding out. Elsewhere, Gary and Marny find an unusual spot for some alone time. Meanwhile, Nick is in the dog house when he forgets about an important event with his wife, Emily.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Guys with Kids @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Oh Sit!, The X Factor, America’s Got Talent, Top Chef Masters, Restaurant: Impossible, Restaurant Stakeout, & Cajun Pawn Stars.

Ramblings of a Shipper’s Heart: The Woe of Woo

The other day, I was looking at shows that are building up on my DVR, and Scott, my husband, just shook his head and sighed. I have six episodes of Burn Notice (which includes last season’s finale) and five episodes of Royal Pains on there. That’s every episode of the first and all but the first two episodes of the second so far this season. I can’t bring myself to watch them (although I have hopes about that changing soon with Burn Notice…). Why? Because I hate a story line so much on both shows that I can’t enjoy the shows themselves. And yes, the title of this post is about a Shipper (which, if you don’t know, means someone who roots for a certain relationship (ergo, “shipper”) from a TV show, movie, book, whatever. Not all of this rant is about relationship woes on TV, but I suppose there is an underlying theme for most of them. 😉
