If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/9/11

Sorry! I’m running late today, as yesterday, I was up for 24 hours. Once I fell asleep, I slept 15. LOL So… Anyway, since Megan, Lisa, and Jason are basically giving you what I might have, I’m going to skip out of telling you what I think you should watch. 😉 To see what they think, check it out below. – Jenny

While tonight’s Community repeat, “Basic Rocket Science,” is one of my favorite episodes from this past season, my pick tonight is Love Bites. I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed last week’s premiere episode. It’s fun and light and actually makes a really good summer series. Yet, it was good enough that I was surprised that NBC never tried it out somewhere during the regular TV season. The three-vignette style makes each episode feel like a compilation of sitcom shorts, and they did a much better job of tying each of them together through the small group of main characters than anticipated. At any rate, it’s worth checking out. Besides, other than the NBA Finals game, there isn’t anything else on tonight. It’s still two weeks until we get the return of Burn Notice, followed by the excellent new series Suits on USA Network, to spruce up our Thursday nights this summer.

Tonight’s three stories include a woman scaring off a guy by baking for him, a couple that is trying to accept their son’s gay relationship, and a guy that decides to take up knitting so he can spend more time with a woman. Michelle Trachtenberg (Gossip Girl, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) guest stars.

Love Bites plays tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Love Bites @ Clicker.

Last night’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance had me in tears a few times. This season is shaping up to be an amazing journey already. I have to admit how in awe I am of Natalia. She’s not your average size dancer, but wow, can she move. That girl is showing everyone that big girls are beautiful and sexy, too. I hope that her being diagnosed with diabetes during Vegas week won’t affect her chances.

On tonight’s episode, we are introduced to the Top 20, and I’m sure it’s going to be another episode where I need my Kleenex. What can I say? I’m a sap. 😉

Tune in to FOX at 8/7c to see the outcome for your favorite dancer. Learn where to find episodes online of So You Think You Can Dance @ Clicker.

On the heels of a hilarious pilot, Love Bites packs a punch of funny that you won’t want to miss. In the pilot, we got to know Annie (Becki Newton), a pregnant woman carrying a baby for her sister who still wants a social life. We also got to meet tattoo artist Judd Rouscher (Greg Grunberg) who is married to Colleen (Constance Zimmer), and the two have quite the unconventional marriage. They each have a list of celebrities that they can cheat on each other with, and Jennifer Love Hewitt is tops on Judd’s list. It just so happens that Judd was on a plane to Miami with JLH and got to try his hand at crossing her off his list. With an interesting look at love, sex, and relationships, Love Bites is something to sink your teeth into!

Tonight, Annie’s friend Jodie scares off a guy by baking for him, while a couple learns to embrace their gay son’s relationship. Also, a guy takes up knitting in order to spend time with a woman.

    Talk about winning by default–Love Bites is the only new scripted show that’s on tonight! My pick would be Childrens’ Hospital which I guess is technically on tomorrow since it airs at midnight.
