If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/1/18

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

My pick is the first of tonight’s new CBS comedies, The Neighborhood. Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield, New Girl) is a friendly guy from the Midwest. When his wife Gemma (Beth Behrs, 2 Broke Girls) gets a job as a school principal in LA, they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover (Hank Greenspan). They quickly learn that their new neighborhood is…slightly different from their previous one, but it doesn’t faze them a bit. Unfortunately, their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer), is a little more than wary of the newcomers, while his gracious wife, Tina (Tichina Arnold, Everybody Hates Chris, Happily Divorced, Daytime Divas), rolls out the welcome wagon. Their younger son, Marty (Marcel Spears, The Mayor), thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community and finds his dad’s attitude about the Johnsons very funny, and their unemployed older son, Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney, Vice Principals), finds that Dave may finally be someone who understands him.

I haven’t seen the pilot, but the trailer looks pretty funny. I really like Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs, & Tichina Arnold, and Marcel Spears’s character Marty is amusing in the trailer. Cedric the Entertainer is hit or miss for me in terms of how much I like him, depending on how over the top the character is. But I think I’ll find the show and him funny this time, so I’m quite looking forward it.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a friendly Midwesterner moves his family to a Los Angeles neighborhood next door to Calvin, who’s concerned the newcomers will disrupt the culture on the block.

Meet the Johnsons and Butlers tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Happy Together, 9-1-1, Halloween Baking Championship, Magnum P.I., & Whose Line Is It Anyway?, .
