If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/1/13

I can’t believe it’s already August—next month, the fall TV lineup will be back! I’m still struggling to keep up with the summer line-up, so I don’t know how I’m going to tackle all those new and returning shows! I think it’s time I start thinking about paring down my TV season passes! But since that’s still a couple of months away, let’s talk about what we recommend checking out tonight.

Kyle’s Choice

hollywoodgamenightsmallWhy host your own game night when, every Thursday, you can just join the fun at Jane Lynch’s Hollywood Game Night?! Each week, Jane invites some amazing celebrities—and I like that these are actual celebrities and not six “celebrities” made up of athletes, “real housewives,” and other reality TV “stars.” Each episode is always filled with fun and hilarity, and features a nice variety of games that are just challenging enough, but not overly difficult. My favorite game is probably “Doo Doo,” where the contestants must get their teammates to identify a song while only singing the word “Doo.”

On tonight’s episode, “Purr-ty People,” the celebrity players are Tom Arnold, Stacy Keibler, Patricia Heaton, Rose Byrne, Anthony Anderson, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler. Included: Contestants must identify cat-theme movie moments.

Watch the hilarity tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Wilfred, The Hero, Burn Notice, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice

sullivanandson81smallI love Sullivan & Son, no matter how absolutely wrong some of the humor is. Politically incorrect, socially awkward, but so dang funny. Last week, Hank was hallucinating that Pat Sajak, host of Wheel of Fortune, was there in the bar and able to speak to him. He was the only one that could see or hear him. It was all because he was feeling guilty that he was on the outs with his son and his son’s family—all because at his son’s wedding to a Mexican (I think? lol) woman, he made racial slurs, etc. Basically, he was Hank. In the end, it worked out, and Hank’s son and his family, including his 15yo granddaughter, came to the bar to see him and make peace.

On tonight’s episode, “Running Mates,” the untimely death of Councilman Ryan inspires Jack to run for the open seat – but a fight with Ok Cha explodes into a rivalry for the position. Owen and Ahmed vie for the affections of an attractive hippy chick until she suggests a free-love encounter with all three of them.

Find out if this crazy comedy’s for you tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Burn Notice, Motive, Renovation Raiders, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, & Hollywood Game Night.

Megan’s Choice

rookieblue81smallRookie Blue has won me over in so many ways this season—just when I thought they were completely ruining my favorite characters, they started to heat up the story lines again. I know that Sam and Andy are awesome together, but frankly, I think that Andy and Nick are a much better couple (Sorry, Jenny. 😉 ). They just fit better, and it doesn’t seem like they have to work at their feelings as much. All the relationship stuff aside, there was a really great story arc last week, surrounding Gail and her facing Perik (the man who abducted her), as well as everyone dealing with the memories of Jerry’s death. They all did an amazing job of portraying their grief and at the same time putting their minds to the task to solve the case of the copy cat killer. In the end, although it cost Gail her relationship with Nick, she saved a victim. Evens out, if you ask me.

On this episode, “Friday the 13th,” when a missing persons case is reopened, Swarek teams with his training officer to solve it; Chloe and Dov deal with a witch and her client.

To see what kind of bad luck these officers run into, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching 2013 Young Hollywood Awards, Hollywood Game Night, and Wipeout.
