Tuning In Tonight (09/16/14)

Want to know what our team here at TYLL is watching tonight? (Of course you do.) Here it is!

Nels: I’m going to take a gander at FOX’s comedy block, with season premieres of both New Girl at 9pm and The Mindy Project at 9:30pm sure to create a lot of water cooler fodder. I admit I wasn’t totally thrilled with either of their seasons last year, but their first few episodes are so jam-packed with exciting guest stars that I’m definitely going to give them another shot tonight. (That being said, I just got the Bones season 9 DVDs and I might have to check out the special features tonight, just for fun.)

 Cassidy: I hadn’t realized how busy tonight is for me until I had to think about it. I’m watching what promises to be a packed episode of Big Brother 16 at 8, followed by the FOX comedies: a guest star-filled New Girl and The Mindy Project. Both shows had interesting seasons last year and I can’t wait to see how they start their seasons. Finally, I’m definitely tuning in to watch Finding Carter over at MTV – one of this summer’s surprises. I’m excited for tonight!

Lucie: It’s another night of reality TV with the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race Canada on CTV at 9/8c. The previews allude to a difficult roadblock in New Brunswick and since the remaining four teams are pretty evenly matched, it’s anyone’s game as to who makes it into the finale (which will be airing at a special day and time – this Sunday, 8/7c).

Tuning In Tonight: 9/15/14

As fall draws closer, so does the fall TV season! From now on, TYLL will share what we’re watching every night with you! Be sure to tell us down in the comments what you’re tuning into, too.

Nels: Honestly? It’s probably going to be a Netflix kind of night for me. I am woefully behind on Scandal, as in, still on season 1, so I may try to catch up on it before the new season premieres! (I’ve also got a DVR full of Late Late Show episodes I’ve missed in the last few weeks — Craig is just on too late for me to catch live these days!

Cassidy: It’s a reality kind of night for me: the two-hour finale of Masterchef on FOX, starting at 8/7c and then I will probably tune in to the American Ninja Warrior finale’s last hour on NBC. Masterchef promises to be a close race and I can’t wait to see what it happens, and ANW is just so exciting.

Lucie: Count me in for Masterchef too! I will never admit that I’m addicted to cooking competitions but once I watch one episode, I’m hooked until the end. I have a love/hate relationship with Masterchef and while I claim I don’t care who’ll win, deep down, I know that if Courtney wins, I will be raging. Social media, beware!

… is a young graduate student that has been way too passionate about television ever since she was little. While she insists she doesn’t have a specific type of show, they all usually have strong but flawed lady characters, some derivation of the stubborn friends-in-love/friends-to-lovers trope, and they all make her yell at her tv a lot. She just wishes she had more hours in the day so she could actually write about this.

Bonus Meet Market Monday, late night edition: James Corden

I don’t know if you know this about me, but The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson is one of my favorite shows on TV right now, and I’ve been watching Craig’s run for nearly the entire decade he’s been on the air. I watched him on The Drew Carey Show before that as Mr. Wick, I’ve seen several of his movies, I’ve read his books multiple times, I’ve seen him live even more — to say I’m a fan is an understatement. So, when he announced he was stepping down from the Late, Late Show this year, I was bummed. And more than a little curious about who would be filling his horse-sized shoes.

Today, CBS confirmed that British comedian James Corden would be Ferguson’s successor, and I thought this was the perfect time to get to know our new late night bon vivant. Much like his predecessor, he’s a foreign multi-hyphenate who made tracks across the pond before heading over stateside to grace our television screens. It looks like CBS is going to be keeping the quirk in the Late Late Show time slot, and I couldn’t be happier!

Name: James Kimberley Corden
Occupation: Talk show host. Also: actor, writer, host, comedian and singer-songwriter. Remind you of anyone?

Meet James Corden!

Nels

Nels knew how to operate a TV remote control before she knew how to talk. As a result, she has spent an inordinate amount of time pretending she actually lives on a soundstage. When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.

Meet Market Monday: Robin Scherbatsky

Today’s edition of Meet Market Monday is a bit of a cheat, because our subject happens to be in the news a lot recently thanks to a certain video clip making the rounds and creating quite the stir on the intertubes.

She loves guns and scotch. She’s a pro at laser tag, and can duke it out in a hockey fight with the best of them. She’s a globetrotter and a transplanted New Yorker.

She’s also a former teenage pop star in Canada. (What does that look like, you ask?)

Name: Robin Scherbatsky
Occupation: Reporter
Show: How I Met Your Mother (CBS)

On the surface, Robin (Cobie Smulders) might seem like a bit of a Mary Sue. She’s a beautiful woman in a glamorous job with a great wardrobe, but she loves hanging with the guys and indulging in stereotypically male pastimes. But she is so much more than her origins, even if her dad did always want her to be a boy.

Meet Robin Scherbatsky!
