If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/23/13

Summer is winding down, at least for my kiddo, who goes to band camp in a week and starts school in just a couple of weeks as well. Summer TV, on the other hand, is alive and well. Because of that, we’re here to recommend a few things we think are worth watching. Take our advice… I promise, it’s worth it. 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

covertaffairs723smallLast week’s premiere of Covert Affairs was sweet and romantic, tense and exciting, and surprising and even more shocking all at the same time. Annie and Auggie were too cute and sexy together. But SO MUCH happened. Joan’s pregnant, Arthur stepped down, Henry Wilcox is trying to get Annie to join him against Arthur, and Arthur and Auggie are keeping some secret from everyone. (Are they gay? Did they have a secret affair? No? Damn. 😉 ) Oh, and Arthur has a son who’s a cartel leader. So yeah, it really wasn’t a huge premiere or anything! *laugh*

On tonight’s episode, “Dig for Fire,” after a bombshell revelation rocks the CIA, Annie and Auggie combine forces with Arthur in an attempt to bring Henry’s hidden agenda to light. Joan finds a personal moment to confide in Annie.

Watch the good guys try to bring down the bad tonight on USA Network at 9/8c.

Megan’s Choice

sytycdlogosmallSo You Think You Can Dance has been moving along this season, with the animators quickly becoming my favorite. Unfortunately, due to a knee injury, Jade is out of the competition, I was really sad. The dancers have all been giving it their all, and I’m quite impressed with BluPrint overall.

On tonight’s episode, “Top 16 Perform,” the Top 16 finalists perform for America once again before discovering which female and which male dancers will be sent home packing. Carly Rae Jepsen is the guest judge.

To see how the music plays tonight, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Extreme Weight Loss, Twisted, Counting Cars, and America’s Got Talent.

JJ’s Choice

suits723smallLast week, Suits returned, and although I was quite excited beforehand, I will probably need some time to get used to the new season. With Michelle Fairley and Conleth Hill added to the cast at the same time, this might feel like Game of Thrones, where Harvey and Jessica are fighting for the office. Meanwhile, Rachel came off annoying last week when she tried to force Mike to quit (it’s the only right thing to do), but stayed with him when he didn’t. So I will need some more puzzle pieces to see where this season is heading and if it works for me as the first two season did. But as long as Donna keeps teasing Louis, the show will always be worth watching!

On tonight’s episode, “I Want You to Want Me,” Louis offers Mike a case that could change his future at the firm. Harvey and Jessica team up to bring down an old nemesis who complicates their case to keep Ava Hessington (guest star Michelle Fairley) out of jail.

Find out how Mike’s future could change tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance.

Jenny’s Choice #2

whoselinesmallLast week, we got a double episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and it was brilliantly funny. I loved Aisha Tyler as the new host. The cast was just as funny as they were back when the show first aired. The way they had not only a guest cast member AND a guest star was cool. Plus, they had some of the great set-ups that the original show had AND some new stuff—like the thing from the Drew Carrey special in Vegas, where they lie down on the floor and the camera is above them so it seems like they’re standing up. LOVE. It. Tonight, we only get one new episode (we’re back to double eps next week, I believe), but hey… One ep is better than none, right? 😉

On tonight’s episode, the cast tackles a series of improv games; guests include Keegan-Michael Key (MadTV) and Candice Accola (The Vampire Diaries).

Catch all the laughs tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, America’s Got Talent, Rizzoli & Isles, & Chopped.
