If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/2/11

Thank goodness we’re almost to the end of one of the slowest weeks for new TV in a while! My poor DVR is starving for new episodes, I swear! Last night was the great new show, Franklin and Bash, on TNT. Did you watch? Scott & I really enjoyed it, and I hope you did, too! Tonight is the start of another new show, as well as a new episode of one of Megan’s favorite competition shows, so check it out below!

TV fans first heard of Love Bites back in January of 2010, when NBC announced some of its early development slate for 2010-2011. From there, the show was pushed back what felt like a huge number of times, and just when we thought it was totally dead in the water, NBC announced just a few short weeks ago that the comedy would indeed premiere TONIGHT, finally! After all the hubbub, I don’t have a lot of high expectations for it, but I’m going to give it a shot regardless, because the cast is full of familiar, fun faces. The show premieres with three interwoven stories of love, sex, marriage, and dating.

Annie Matopoulos (Becki Newton, Ugly Betty) is a young, single woman who has taken on an incredible task – serving as a surrogate for her sister. Jealous of the attention that Annie receives while being pregnant, her friend Cassie (Krysten Ritter Breaking Bad) decides she must have a “story” as well, and decides to masquerade as a virgin to attract a man. Meanwhile, when Carter (Kyle Howard, My Boys) is fired from his accounting job and comes home early, he finds his fiancee Liz (Lindsay Price, Eastwick) in bed with a unique gift from her bachelorette party. Also, Judd Rouscher (Greg Grunberg, Heroes, Alias) and his friend Bowman (Craig Robinson, The Office) end up on a cross-country flight with Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer, Party of Five), who is on Judd’s “celebrity exemption list,” allowing him sleep with her without marital consequences. When Judd ends up actually sitting next to her, he must decide what to do with this opportunity.

With names like that, you can’t help but want to watch, right? Check it out tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Love Bites @ Clicker.

Predictable? Yep, that’s me. 😀 Again, I can’t help but love So You Think You Can Dance, and of course, I think you should be watching it again tonight. Not to mention there isn’t a whole lot on right now, unless you’re a basketball fan, which I am NOT. 😀 Why not watch people do amazing things with their bodies? Sometimes, that’s a good thing; others, not so much. 😉

Tonight, the auditions are almost done and are finishing up in Los Angeles.

Tune in to FOX at 8/7c and prepare to be amazed… or laugh. Either is possible. Learn where to find episodes online of So You Think You Can Dance @ Clicker.

A new comedy begins tonight! Greg Grunberg and Becki Newton return to TV for your weekly viewing pleasure in the brand new show Love Bites. The show is a romantic comedy that features three connected stories of love, sex, marriage, and dating. Each of the various vignettes will revolve around an array of very talented guest stars weekly and will also showcase the theme of love with a unique spin. Appearing regularly in the episodes is Becki Newton, whom you loved on the show Ugly Betty, as Annie Matopoulous, a single and sexy New York City girl who is looking only for “Mr. Right Now.” Constance Zimmer and Greg Grunberg also star in the show and play Colleen and Judd Rouscher, a married Venice Beach couple.

Tonight, Annie’s friend Cassie pretends to be a virgin in order to attract men, while a guy loses his job, only to arrive home to find his fiancee using a bachelorette party gift. Meanwhile, a man sits next to Jennifer Love Hewitt on a plane.

Delight in all of the fun on NBC at 10/9c! Learn where to find episodes online of Love Bites @ Clicker.
