Hey not sure what to watch this week on the small screen? No worries #SetTheVCR is here to help you make some of those decisions easier. Each week Sammy Younan and I will give you our picks for each day of the coming week.

Sure you have your old favourites on standby that never changes. But maybe you are looking to freshen it up this week. If that’s the case then let us help you. All times are Eastern Standard Time so please adjust for your time zone.

Ah, January! While the rest of us plan resolutions, sign up for gym memberships, repair relationships…our media doesn’t typically inspire the first month of every year…on television and at the movies. You’d think with all this winter we’d have many excellent television reasons to stay indoors but no!

Sunday, January 6

UFO Cover Ups: Secrets Revealed (9pm / History Channel) – It’s strange how the History Channel is running all these cool aliens specials and tv shows this week when July 2nd is World UFO Day. Maybe start watching now and raise your awareness so come July 2nd you know what to expect. (Sammy)

God Friended Me (8pm / CBS) – I still can’t believe this show is on my watch list. When I checked it out as part of my usual New Fall TV review I fully expected it to be a stinker, but it has grown into a fave this year. Sure it does have some hokum in it but I think it’s just the right amount. But I think we really need to start talking about Greg Berlanti’s move to take over all of TV over the last 5 years. He is longer satisfied with just the CW any longer he is branching out. (Mr. Green)

Monday, January 7

The Clemson Tigers vs The Crimson Tide of Alabama (5 pm / ESPN) – It’s the College Football Playoff National Championship from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. I ah…I don’t know anything about college football. But as I watch ESPN for NBA highlights I’ve often seen spectacular moments from Alabama’s quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. This kid is amazing (Alabama was outscoring opponents 588 to 165 this season…that’s crazy talk!) and to play on in National Championship game…yo I expect big things. (Sammy)

Ancient Aliens (9pm / History) – This long-running show that has sparked several memes over the years has a new episode tonight. They talk of course about the return to Mars. I can’t imagine this being anything less than entertaining for me and the most serious of broadcast TV for those who are deep into this idea. Regardless, Monday has pretty weak offerings tonight so this was the best I could find. (Mr. Green)

Tuesday, January 8

Project Blue Book (10 pm/ History Channel) – Let’s stick with aliens and the History Channel! Project Blue Book is a new drama series inspired by the U.S. Air Force’s secret investigation into the UFO phenomenon in the 1950s and ’60s. Executive Produced by Robert Zemeckis, shot in Vancouver…oh hopefully this is gonna be my new X-Files! (Sammy)

WWE Smackdown! (8pm / USA) – I was just talking about this a couple of days ago. For the first time in over a decade, I am interested in watching wrestling again. And, it is 100% because of THE MAN aka Becky Lynch. Over the holidays with nothing to do I started to see her popping up everywhere in my timelines. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING, I have seen from/about her so far makes me want to watch. Maybe it’s time for you also come back or start watching for the first time. (Mr. Green)

Wednesday, January 9

Solo: A Star Wars Story (3am / Netflix) – I never saw this Star Wars movie…or Rogue One. (You could say I’m on my own…all Solo!)  It’s on Netflix now so…I’ll check it out. Like many others, I’d prefer a Boba Fett movie but this is what the studio gave us so this is a eat my vegetables don’t leave the dinner table movie until I get some yummy dessert. (Sammy)

The Goldbergs (8pm / ABC) – Barry and Lainey’s wedding has Beverly all hopped up on her Yennta powers wreacking havoc. Sounds like the usual calamity of errors is going to unfurl for us this week. A great way to kick back into primetime TV for the New Year. I was a late-comer to this party but now I’m fully on board each week. (Mr. Green)

Thursday, January 10

Roswell: Mysteries Decoded (9pm / The CW) – Roswell, Jimmy Hoffa, D. B. Cooper…something clearly happened and yet these mysteries have become eternal and cling to our imaginations. I’m not expecting The CW to reveal the truth (which I’ve been assured is out there!) but at least let’s review what we know to be true and work from there. (Sammy)

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (9pm / NBC) – Take note of the NEW TIME / CHANNEL for B99 returning to our airwaves after FOX cancelled it at the end of last season. Jake and Amy get a major honeymoon upgrade, but their time in paradise is derailed by an unexpected guest… I’m really hoping it’s who I think it is. Because if it’s not Doug Judy I’m going to burn this mother down. (Mr. Green)

Friday, January 11

Future Man (Hulu) – So a) I didn’t know there was, a first season of Future Man! 2) After watching the trailer for Season 2 I ah…I don’t know if I’ll watch it anyways. As tempting as “mysterious visitors travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity” is. Can you maybe check it out and lemme know what’s the what? (Sammy)

The Last Laugh (3am / Netflix) – When retired talent manager Al Hart is reunited with his first client, Buddy Green, a comic who quit show business 50 years ago, he convinces Buddy to escape their retirement community and hit the road for a cross-country comedy tour. I’m torn on this one as I hate Chevy Chase but LOVE Richard Dreyfuss. Still looks like it could be good times to enjoy on a Friday night. (Mr. Green)

Saturday, January 12

Nothing! – It is Saturday night…maybe time to find The One? She’s out there…all lonely just waiting for your touch. Or join Mr. Green and watch an NFL game…I did start out by recommending a college football game. Hopefully he has chicken wings! (Sammy)

NFC Divisional Playoff Game RAMS Vs. TBD (8pm / FOX) – Now I’m going to have to go get chicken wings. I’m sorry, but there really wasn’t anything more interesting on tonight. Hell, even SNL is a rerun. Plus some of us like to watch the sports ball especially when it gets to playoff time. Maybe next week will prove to be better. Fingers crossed. (Mr. Green)

Well, there you go plenty of options for the week ahead. Enjoy yourself and watch responsibly.

If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
