After two weeks of Give Me My Remote readers nominating their television favorites from the past year, it’s time to vote for the 5th Annual GMMR TV Awards!

Most of the categories have five nominees, but due to ties, the number can vary per topic. (And, as a reminder, each category can only have two nominees per show, so only the top two vote-getters from any series moved forward to the voting round.)

Last up: “Show We Were Most Sorry to See Go.”

Take a look at your nominees and then vote for your choice below!

Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

Comments Off on Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

It was another great year for television, and to celebrate that, I made my list of the top shows in 2014.

As per usual, my annual disclaimer: I literally can’t watch every show, and so some shows that probably should be here (like TRANSPARENT) didn’t make the cut because I couldn’t catch up in time. (But on the bright side, I caught up on every show I name-checked last year as not being caught up on.)

So, these are my top shows of the year…

SELFIE won’t be continuing on at ABC: the network has opted to not order a back nine for the freshman comedy.

Personally, I’m really bummed by this, because the show was getting stronger by the week. (And the last two episodes that aired were fantastic.)

Comments Off on SELFIE: What You Need to Know About the New ABC Series

There are a ton, ton, ton of new shows launching this season, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, SELFIE…

Comments Off on ‘We Have Thoughts’ Vodcast: Danielle and Marisa on ABC’s BLACK-ISH and SELFIE

Fall TV is practically here, and there are a lot of new shows on tap. And, unfortunately, a lot of them aren’t great.

But there are some gems in the mix. And so to help you distinguish the gems from the duds, my friend/vodcast partner Danielle Turchiano and I took on each network’s lineup to pick our favorite pilots. (And we didn’t always agree with each other, either.)

First up? ABC…
