Couch Madness: ‘Bombshell’

Couch Madness Bombshell

In honor of the NCAA tournament season, Give Me My Remote is bringing back our TV-centric bracket, pitting similarly titled episodes against each other: Couch Madness! (Credit for the excellent name goes to fellow reporter Chris Hayner.)

The seeding is simple: rather than quality of the hour, we’re going by air date (with the oldest episode getting the #1 slot and the newest getting #8). With Peak TV, this will not include every single show that has used this title; rather, we picked a selection from what was available.

The first round will run from Monday, March 11 through Friday, March 15. Round two will kick off on Monday, March 18, with the final face-off starting on Monday, March 25.

Last up? “Bombshell.” Keep reading for the bracket, episode descriptions (from IMDB), and the poll. (For the other episodes competing, check out all the brackets here!)

SISTERS (1): “Teddy and Falconer shop for a home; therapy unearths Georgie’s memories of being molested as a child by her dad.”


THE IRRATIONAL (8): “Alex’s team confronts the convicted church bomber from 20 years prior. Marisa and Kylie collaborate to rescue Alec, Phobe, and Rizwan. Jace makes a pivotal discovery in the investigation.”

NASH BRIDGES (2): “Nash’s former love is involved in the theft of plutonium. He has to fight the Fed’s, Pakistani gunmen and his own feelings to stop her.”


DESIGNATED SURVIVOR (7): “President Kirkman’s first international summit is derailed when journalist Abe Leonard publishes an explosive article. Meanwhile, Hannah Wells uncovers the conspiracy’s next target.”

LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT (3): “The death of a stripper-turned-celebrity’s son appears to be an accidental overdose, but when the woman dies later, days after giving birth, the case becomes a homicide investigation that seems to involve the paternity of the newborn.”


SMASH (6): “Now that Rebecca has decided not to return to “Bombshell”, the creative team, beyond the need for Tom and Julia to rewrite the ending which will include one more song, has a major decision: whether to cast Ivy or Karen in the lead role for tonight’s preview, the decision which could affect the show’s future. Karen is the official understudy, but the understudy, as is generally the case, does not rehearse the role until after the previews have been completed. And Ivy knows the role more comprehensively at this stage having been in the lead earlier in the project’s history. This issue causes major dissension among the team. A decision is made, which only increases the tension within the creative team. It also causes a four sided issue between Derek, Karen, Dev and Ivy. Meanwhile, Ellis makes an admission to Eileen, which he did for what he believed the good of the show, but which Eileen may see differently. And Frank comes to a possible impasse in his relationship with Julia, regardless of Michael’s presence or not and regardless of if she remains faithful.”

CSI: MIAMI (4): “As the team investigates a bomb explosion that killed a 17-year-old girl in a clothing store dressing room, Horatio discovers that Julia Winston and Kyle are facing new troubles.”


LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT (5): “After the CEO of a weapons company is stabbed in the groin in a parking garage, Benson and Stabler are forced to go undercover in a modern-day swingers club to get information about the possible suspects.”
