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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, after seven crazy seasons, the Comedy Central series Workaholics comes to an end. Over the years, co-workers/roommates Blake, Adam, and Anders have found just about every excuse to avoid actually doing their telemarketing jobs and just spend their time partying or getting up to wacky schemes. They often show up to work drunk or high or engage in totally inappropriate workplace behavior. It’s a wonder how they haven’t been fired. But as much as they claim to hate their jobs, their coworkers – including always-angry boss Alice – have become a dysfunctional family. Last week, motivational speaker Bianca threatened to disrupt the annual workplace Darwin Awards ceremony, and the guys made it their mission to get rid of her. As she was leaving, Bianca offered Alice a job at her company. Even though the job was probably a lot better, Alice ultimately couldn’t bring herself to abandon her work family. It’s like they’re all trapped there for life.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this series comes to an end. The creators have known about this end date for a long time, so I really hope there is some kind of definitive end to the show. Will the guys finally get a little maturity and act like adults? Will the guys go out in a blaze of glory, Thelma & Louise style? Or will it just be not-no-much-business as usual, with the guys up to yet another off-the-wall scheme? Pretty much anything could happen!

On tonight’s series finale, “Party Gawds,” the guys become party gods after an energy drink company starts paying them to throw ragers.

To see how the series ends, tune in to Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Jeff & Some Aliens, Legion, The Magicians, The Expanse, and Major Crimes.

What a great week it’s been for TV. The weather, not so much. But I’ll take what I can get and just curl up under a blanket and watch TV while I try to keep warm. See what we’re recommending for you tonight.

hotincleveland416smallLast week on Hot in Cleveland, Joy’s “baby daddy” Simon came into town to meet not only his son, but also his grandson for the first time when they tried to get Wilbur into a prestigious preschool. Victoria ended up bringing Wilbur to the meeting, and all the family skeletons came spilling out, about Simon abandoning his son, about them meeting for the first time IN the office there at the school, and more. Needless to say, Wilbur didn’t get in, but the family agreed that was a good thing, because the school was snooty and too uppity.

On tonight’s episode, “The Undead,” Elka throws a fake funeral for Victoria so she can join her husband in hiding. Her nemesis, Susan Lucci, attends. Simon and Joy face a dilemma in their relationship. Craig Ferguson, Susan Lucci, Matt Iseman, David Cheaney, & Laird MacIntosh guest star.

See if Victoria gets away with it and what dilemma Simon & Jay face tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Mixology & The Soul Man.

We’re halfway through the week, and it’s not getting any less busy for my television schedule. I love TV, which is a good thing, since my schedule is just getting flooded by so many new episodes and series premieres. Let’s take a look at what’s tying up my attention tonight and what we recommend.

Megan’s Choice

wahlburgerssmallIt’s no secret that I enjoy Donnie Wahlberg on Blue Bloods, so when I heard about Wahlburgers, I was excited! This show is a look at the personal and professional life of Boston chef Paul Wahlberg and his real-life entourage as he prepares to expand his hamburger restaurant business. His entourage includes his family, which just happens to be Mark and Donnie Wahlberg—that is a lot of handsome Boston boys on one show!

On tonight’s series premiere, “Five O’clock is Dinner Time,” Donnie brings girlfriend Jenny McCarthy home to meet his mother and instigates a “sauce-off” between Alma and Paul; Paul works on a special “Burger of the Month” for Jenny.

To see how it goes when Jenny meets Mama Wahlberg, tune in to A&E at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago PD, Super Fun Night, Modern Family, Law & Order: SVU, Duck Dynasty, Suburgatory, CSI, Top Chef, Klondike, and Opposite Worlds.

Mid-way through the week, and thank goodness, my kiddo is back at school. Antibiotics work wonders. Suffice it to say, I’m WAY behind on TV. But that’s okay. I’ll catch up. Of course, all the new episodes tonight won’t help lessen my load, but I can’t help but be happy because there’s some great stuff on. To see what we think you should be watching tonight, read on. 😉

I just got turned on to Top Chef with the last season of Top Chef Masters, and I’m angry with myself that I hadn’t watched it until that point. The show is everything I love in a cooking competition—especially since there is a little less pompous attitude & cattiness on this one than a lot of them. Chefs in general are kind of pompous. But at least on this show, it doesn’t take over for most of them. I’m pretty happy with the eliminations so far, and I can’t wait to see the challenges & who goes home tonight. Tonight should be fun because I haven’t seen the “Restaurant Wars” episode of the show, so I’m excited to see what it’s like.

On tonight’s episode, “Restaurant Wars,” it’s men versus women in this week’s episode, as the cheftestants go into Restaurant Wars with the hopes of impressing world-renowned restaurateur Danny Meyer. Relationships are tested as restaurants are built from scratch, and each team must try to overcome the destructive mistakes of one of their fellow chefs. Emeril Lagasse and Gail Simmons join head judge Tom Colicchio and host Padma Lakshmi.

Watch the 75-minute exciting new episode tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Top Chef @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Neighbors, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Bobby’s Dinner Battle, CSI, Hot in Cleveland, & Happily Divorced.

For those that had Monday off, today is the first day back at work. I hope your “Monday” goes better than Mondays have a tendency to do. 😉 There’s some good stuff on tonight, so let’s see what we think you should be watching!

Jenny’s Choice

All season, we’ve been leading up to a wedding on Cougar Town, and tonight’s 1-hour season finale is all about Jules and Grayson and their impending nuptials. I’ve seen the 2-part episode and it’s one of my favorites of the season. We also recently saw Travis wrestle with his feelings for Laurie, and that comes back into play again in a fun and interesting way. Believe me, if you’re a fan of this great show, don’t miss tonight’s finale. And remember…the show moves to TBS next season! 🙂

On tonight’s episodes, “My Life/Your World,” when Grayson complains that he’s living the movie “Groundhog Day” because the gang shows up at the same time every day at Jules’ house, Jules asks for a Groundhog Day-themed bachelorette party so that Ellie and Laurie can explain the movie to her. Then, fed up with the lack of privacy, Grayson convinces Jules to elope to Napa…but the cul de sac crew happily tags along. David Arquette (star Courtney Cox’s ex-husband) guest stars as a hotel concierge who’ll go to great (and possibly illegal) lengths to help the wine wedding go off without a hitch.

Laugh & cry tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Cougar Town @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Hatfields & McCoys, Chopped, No Kitchen Required, & the season premeire of HGTV Design Star.
