I didn’t get into Impractical Jokers until the last season or so. I thought it was a normal hidden camera show, which I find funny but get tired of really quickly. But my son really liked it and was watching it one day in the living room, and I saw it and laughed harder than I’d laughed in a while. These four friends (Sal, Joe, Murr, & Q) are an absolute riot to watch. This is must-see TV in our house, and if you give it a chance, it just might be in yours as well. Tonight’s a good night to check it out because it’s the season premiere. And don’t miss the “Inside Jokes” episode after, where you get to see behind-the-scenes shots and information during a previously aired episode. Those are always hysterical!

On tonight’s episode, “Swim Shady,” the guys are hit with some bad reception while working behind a desk; the guys head to the park where they ask strangers for advice on their questionable life choice; tonight’s big loser is tasked with taking photos of a water aerobics class.

Find out who loses big tonight on TruTV at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, Powerless, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, Top Chef, My Kitchen Rules, & Beat Bobby Flay.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/2/15

santasinthebarnsmallI was going to pick the season premiere of Top Chef for tonight because I love that show so much, but instead, my pick is the series premiere of another reality competition show, Santas in the Barn on TruTV, the search for the nation’s best Santa. Ten Santas from across the country come to live at the ultimate Christmas fantasy camp, where they’ll compete in over-the-top Christmas-themed challenges to see who most lives the “Santa Way.” They will vote on who most exemplifies the Christmas spirit, with the winner getting $100,000 and the title of America’s Best Santa.

I have no idea how good or bad this is going to be. It could be cheesy and simply awful, or it could be a lot of fun, something to help get viewers into the Christmas spirit. I’m hoping it’s the second, but even if it’s the first, it might be fun to watch regardless! Based on the photos I saw on the show’s site, most of the wannabe Santas are…different-looking than your normal Kris Kringle. I can’t wait to see how fun and silly the challenges are and which Santa is my favorite!

On tonight’s episode, “Welcome to the North Pole,” the Santas learn how to stack gifts, climb chimneys, and a whole lot more as they embark on a once in a lifetime journey to become America’s Best Santa.

Meet the Santas tonight on TruTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hellevator, Rosewood, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds, Cutthroat Kitchen, Modern Family, black-ish, Code Black, Mystery Diners, & Top Chef.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/5/13

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, but somehow, I still have most of my Christmas shopping still to go—it’s hard to believe it’s less than three weeks away! I’m enjoying the lighter volume of new TV we get around this time of year, as it gives me a chance to catch up on my TiVo backlog before January’s midseason onslaught. We’ve got some suggestions to help you choose what to watch tonight…

comedinewithmesmallCome Dine With Me was one of my favorite cooking shows a while back when it aired on BBC America. The Food Network also tried a similar show that didn’t last very long, but it wasn’t quite the same format. However, tonight, Lifetime brings back the original series. Each episode takes place over a week, where amateur cooks take turns holding dinner parties for one another. At the end of each night, the dinner guests speak frankly about the meal and give their rating. At the end of the week, the scores are totaled to see who gave the best dinner party. It’s always fun to see how petty some of these people are—saying how great everything is to the chef, but then in the car ride home, they start trash-talking so they can justify giving a low score (in order to improve their own chances of winning). However, there are also some of those who actually give credit where credit is due. I find the show a lot of fun to watch and am looking forward to it returning to my TV.

On tonight’s first episode, “Beets Backlash,” Angela prepares an Armenian allspice meal; Bill perfects his Italian-inspired menu; Cathy pushes boundaries with risky dishes; Sayeh makes a confession that may jeopardize her chances of winning. Then on the second episode, “Smokin’ Ribs,” Beth hopes her chances do not go up in smoke; Tania entertains with an Italian gangster style; Jackson serves an Asian sensation; Alex tries to win the hearts of his guests.

See if these amateur chefs can actually cook tonight on Lifetime at 10/9c & 11/10c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Grey’s Anatomy, The Sound of Music Live!, Glee, White Collar, and The Returned.
