If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/26/12

Comic-Con is just about two weeks away, and I’m getting really excited. However, I’m also stressing out about what I’m going to be able to see! They seem to have really spread out the TV panels this year, so it’s going to be tough to do my usual pick a room and stick with it. Speaking of lots of to see, Tuesdays are one of the more packed nights of TV this summer. Read on to find out what we recommend you check out tonight.

Kyle’s Choice

The thing I like about The Glee Project is that it gives us a glimpse into the Glee casting process—as insane as it may be. This season, the show really hasn’t changed that much—I think even the episode names are the same as last year. However, they seem to have really tried to get a real diverse group of contestants this time, including a girl in a wheelchair, a blind guy, and a transgender male. Last week, it was all about Vulnerability, and the contestants needed to show theirs while performing “Everybody Hurts.” As usual, this led to lots of tears among the contestants. It was Mario, Charlie, and Lily who had to do last chance performances, and once again, my lack of musical taste was confirmed—I thought Charlie’s rendition of “Fix You” sounded terrible (it was very different from the original), but Ryan Murphy loved it. However, in the end, no one was sent home.

In tonight’s episode, “Sexuality,” the contestants must prove their sultry worth in a lusty rendering of the songs “Moves Like Jagger” and “Milkshake.” Naya Rivera is the guest mentor.

Check it out tonight on Oxygen at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Glee Project @ Clicker.

Jenny’s Choice

Tonight is the second season premiere of another of TV Land’s great comedies, Retired at 35. It’s not my favorite of their shows, but I really enjoyed the first season. The show is about a young man named David who gets tired of the rat race of NYC and retires, moving to live with his parents in their “active-adult community.” During the first season, his parents actually split up, but this season, it looks like they are going to be trying to work out their problems. I love the cast—especially David’s parents, played by George Segal and Jessica Walter. This season, Marissa Jaret Winokur joins the cast as David’s sister, Amy, who we have yet to meet. I’m not sure how I feel about that, cause from what I know of her, she is a very hyper, perky person, but hopefully the character won’t grate on my nerves. lol

On tonight’s premiere, “Up North,” Alan sets out to get Elaine back, only to find she might be seeing another man. He recruits David and Amy to help get to the bottom of things and win back his wife.

Catch the laughs tonight on TV Land at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Retired at 35 @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, HGTV Design Star, Rizzoli & Isles, Chopped, & Franklin & Bash.

Megan’s Choice

Love in the Wild made me very unhappy last week—very, very unhappy. Why on earth did Ben choose Michelle over Jen? Jen is smart, adorable, and funny. Michelle is a complete witch, with fake boobs, fake eyelashes—basically, all fake. Ben was my favorite until he shattered Jen’s heart like that. Also not winning any nice boy awards was Jesse, who dumped Tara for Ali after messing around with Tara under the covers. It’s been an eventful season already, and we’re only going into episode 4!

On tonight’s episode, the couples set out to barter a plethora of coconuts in order to advance through a horseback-riding, machete-wielding challenge in the jungle. Some couples remain strong, while others experience heightened fears and emotional breakdowns. In the dramatic Couple’s Choice Ceremony, ulterior motives are revealed, and an unexpected couple is sent home.

To see what craziness is to be found this week, tune in to NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Love in the Wild @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, Jane by Design, and The Glee Project.
