If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/23/11

Wow, you can definitely tell it’s at the tail end of the 2010/2011 television season, because there is almost nothing on network TV tonight. There are a few things on that I don’t watch, though, so check out below what we think the best of your choices tonight are.

Honestly, the only things on tonight that I watch are on the Food Network (gotta love Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives and Guy Fieri!), and I might watch the season premiere of The Bachelorette. I doubt I’ll watch all season, though, because I’m not a big fan of Ashley Hebert, who was one of the final three on the last season of The Bachelor. She’s nice, sweet, kinda cute, I guess, but something about her just…bugs me. I wasn’t planning to watch it at all, but the promos for the premiere look hysterical. (And ok, I may have to keep watching, because some of those guys? Whew!)

Tonight, Ashley meets 25 hot, single (supposedly, remember the men we’ve seen the last few seasons? *rolls eyes*) men and by the end of the night, will have narrowed it down to the top 15. Fun stuff.

Jump with us to check out the great promo that makes me laugh hysterically, and to see what Megan & Lisa think you should watch.

The Bachelorette premieres tonight for a 2-hour new episode on ABC, starting at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Bachelorette @ Clicker.

Megan’s Choice

I admit that I still find Make It or Break It addictive. How could anyone not? There’s teenage drama, gymnast drama, and then the degree to which all the adult drama has gone this season is great! The girls are all in fine form as well this season, and poor Emily is all out of sorts with her pregnancy issues.

On tonight’s 2-hour season finale, The World’s competition in Rio de Janeiro is fast approaching, yet the team is preoccupied by everything but gymnastics: Lauren fights for Max’s attention, while simultaneously trying to keep her involvement in Sasha’s resignation a secret; Payson finds the perfect solution to her family’s financial problems, with potentially costly consequences; and Kelly must choose between pleasing her mother and being a loyal teammate. Even Sasha is distracted by his feelings for Summer and news of her impending wedding. Through it all, team captain Kaylie tries to keep the peace among her teammates, while growing increasingly uncomfortable with lying to the public about her anorexia — not only is keeping such a huge secret hurting her recovery, but it’s also affecting her gymnastics.

When the team arrives in Rio, things go from bad to worse when the girls crumble under the seemingly insurmountable pressure. As the pettiness and in-fighting grow out-of-control, will Coach Belov be able to convince his team to believe in themselves and each other before it’s too late, or will the girls have to kiss their medal aspirations goodbye?

Tune in to ABC Family at 9/8c to see how the girls handle all the mounting pressure. Learn where to find episodes online of Make It or Break It @ Clicker.

Lisa’s Choice

This season of The Secret Life of the American Teenager hasn’t disappointed. It’s been boiling over with nothing but drama since the start, and it only continues to heat up further. Adrian is having a baby, and Amy and Ricky’s relationship has taken quite a few twists and turns. With the season powering through, no one knows where these couples’ future will take them. And with the future so uncertain, will Ben and Adrian really be able to make a lifelong commitment together and raise a baby at the same time?

Tonight, people all over town continue to fight and disagree, as Adrian’s imminent baby shower gets closer. Lauren, Madison, amy, and Grace all decide to attend the shower, and Ricky find out that Leo has problems with stress.

Don’t miss a moment of the drama at 8/7c on ABC Family! Learn where to find episodes online of The Secret Life of the American Teenager @ Clicker.
