Special Edition Most Wanted: The Oprah Finale

Image

This is the most important Most Wanted List to date, and you know why. This week, something historic will happen. So historic, it will change television and media overall forever. Daytime will never be the same again without her, and this week, she takes the top spot by a mile. More details below, but we also will see a plethora of finales and premieres this week. So large, in fact, that I decided to double the amount of things that are Most Wanted this week to 10. How’s that for a special edition?! The list is down below:

1. The Oprah Winfrey Show – Series Finale

It’s the end of an era. After almost 5,000 shows and millions of lives changed, Oprah is saying goodbye to her daily talk show on Wednesday and with it comes sadness for her dedicated fans (me included.) For the past 4 years, which have been the most important for me growing up (from 12 to now 16,) I have watched Oprah and if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t even be remotely interested in the television world. She set an example of how the medium of television is so powerful and how far you can go in this world. In this judgmental world, Oprah was my only escaping alternate dimension where I learned to be an open-minded person, and I owe any humility I have to her. My absolute favorite moment on the Oprah show was when she reunited Clemantine and Claire Wamariya with their family after they were torn apart from the Rwandan genocide. It gives me chills every time I watch that episode, and I well definitely never forget it. Make sure you watch these final three shows! Check your local listings if you don’t already know when Oprah airs in your area. Especially watch the final Oprah Winfrey Show this Wednesday.

2. American Idol

For American Idol, a completely revamped judge panel and format worked for the better, and everyone is calling it a comeback. This season has started with hundreds of thousands of contestants, and it all comes down to the final two: Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina. The youngest final two ever are sure to bring a large audience this Wednesday, and a record number of votes. In recent seasons, the winners haven’t made it big. But this year the winner is sure to make a splash on the charts, if America gets it right, which I think will happen this year.

3. The Hangover Part II

Two years after the record-breaking comedy made it’s way to theaters, the guys are doing it again. This time it’s Stu, and you know it’s going to be crazy when you see a facial tattoo freshly imprinted around Stu’s eye. Problem is, that could stop the movie from coming out. Hopefully it won’t, but who knows what might happen at today’s hearing in Missouri. If the plaintiffs request for an injunction is denied, everything should be fine for The Hangover’s release this Friday.

4. Modern Family Season Finale

Another hilarious season ends with the family trying to surprise Jay with a birthday party, Phil meets an enemy from college, and Cam gets in some trouble at a bakery. You know, the typical craziness? The producers must have something special in store for this Wednesday’s finale, and you should definitely tune in.

5. Glee Season Finale

The most expensive Glee episode to-date airs tonight, and it happens to be the finale episode. New Directions makes it’s way to the New York City to make a splash at the nationals which are being held in the city. Will they win? And how is all the drama from this past season going to end? Tune in to find out!

6. The Middle Season Finale

The stellar second season ends with uncertainty that that Brick may be held back. Frankie does all she can to help Brick and keep the family from going over the edge as usual. Expect the ever-present craziness from Sue and Axl to also be a main point in this sweet and quirky comedy starring Patricia Heaton.

7. The Event Series Finale

A bumpy freshman run was all The Event got, and the disappointing show is ending tonight with an uncertain future. Will ‘The Event’ happen? If it does, when will it happen? And most of all: WHAT THE HELL IS THE EVENT?!

8. Kung Fu Panda 2

This hilarious animated comedy is back and will hopefully be better than the already great original. Word is that DreamWorks wants to make this a 6-Picture adventure. They’ll have to keep it fresh if they want to stretch it out that long. Either way, early reviews are overwhelmingly positive, and this movie’s sure to earn big bucks this Thursday.

9. Dancing With the Stars Finale

I truly thought that Kirstie Alley was going to get kicked-off in the opening week, and now she’s in the final two. Boy was I wrong! Alley and Chelsea Kane will dance all the way to the mirror ball trophy this Tuesday, which is probably very dusty right about now.

10. Chelsea Lately

Even with all these shows and movies, this hilarious late-night show has crept it’s way back into the list with a great week of guests. Tonight, American Idol Judge Randy Jackson makes his way on the show for what I believe will be the first time. You think that’s big? Wait later in the week for even more big TV and movie stars from shows like Glee and movies like The Hangover!

Wow! Isn’t it packed?! This is going o be one hell of a week! Here’s another reminder to make sure you watch the Oprah Finale this Wednesday Come back next week for an all-new Most Wanted List!

ABC Fall Schedule

Image

It was ABC’s turn to reveal its schedule ahead of its upfront this afternoon in New York City. With it, they unveiled over 13 news that will premiere in the Fall and midseason. Among them, the high-profile action series ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and the new comedy from Tim Allen, now titled ‘Last Man Standing,’ and will air on Thursday and Tuesday nights, respectively. Right after the Tim Allen comedy will premiere another laffer, ‘Man Up,’ confirming what many have predicted to happen: A second ABC Comedy block. Two new shows will premiere on Wednesday nights, one right before ‘Modern Family,’ (Suburgatory) and a drama right after Happy Endings(Revenge.) But wait, what happened to Cougar Town? ABC has actually held the Courtney Cox comedy until the midseason, premiering after ‘Dancing With the Stars’ ends next year. Usually, midseason shows don’t get full season pickups, but ‘Town’ was picked up for a full 22-episode season, so CT fans rejoice! Only one change has come to Fridays, with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition being moved from Sunday nights to Friday nights, and Saturday nights are filled with College football. Finally, a big change to Sundays, with 2 new dramas being added to save the troubled night, with veteran drama ‘Desperate Housewives’ aging with every passing season. Fantasy drama ‘Once Upon A Time’ airs at 8 on Sundays, and drama/thriller ‘Pan Am’ will air right after ‘Housewives’ at 10 PM.

Just as I’ve done on my other schedule posts, here’s how the Fall schedule will look like on your TV listings, from Entertainment Weekly.

(Once again, thanks EW.com!)

Holiday-Themed Shows Airing This Week

P108

With many shows starting their Midseason hiatus either this week or next week, primetime shows are airing their Christmas-themed episodes. I know for a fact that Glee is doing a Christmas-themed episode tonight, which will probably have many songs from their newest album respectfully named, The Christmas Album, that was released back in November. ABC aired their Merry Christmas Charlie Brown special last night, and will do so again on Christmas Day. Tonight, ABC is airing Christmas episodes of The Middle and Better With You. Modern Family is oddly not having a Christmas episode this year, but had an amazing one last year. Cougar Town is also doing the same. Nickelodeon will be airing their early instant classic, Merry Christmas Drake & Josh, which was a huge hit when it aired back in 2007, with over 10 million viewers watching on Christmas Eve that year. NBC is aired a christmas themed episode of Minute To Win It. Today NBC isn’t airing any holiday themed programming as a new episode of The Sing-Off and a repeat of Law & Order: SVU will fill-in the night. Fox, CBS, and the CW are following suit with no christmas programming tonight. I’ll be updating you guys daily on which shows will have holiday themed episodes, including small decals of Christmas shows that are airing tonight on tomorrow’s post, so stay tuned!
