If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/15/13

It seems like these summer weeks have been flying by. While it’s been nice having a little less TV on during the summer, why can’t these networks schedule anything I want to watch at 8pm?! The 9 and 10pm time slots are so overloaded that I often find myself still trying to catch up on the previous night’s programs during primetime the following night! I’m jealous of those Central time zone folks who get that extra hour after primetime! But enough of my griping. Here’s what we recommend you check out tonight—note that none of them are earlier than 9pm!

rookieblue815smallLast week on Rookie Blue, it was Frank and Noelle’s wedding day, and everyone at the precinct was preparing to head to the ceremony, when a bus full of senior citizens was robbed at gunpoint. But that wasn’t the only issue—Noelle had pulled a runaway bride after finding a lump. So while Traci and Steve looked for Noelle, the others interviewed the seniors. Meanwhile, Oliver asked Celery to be his last-minute date for the wedding, where they ran into his ex; Holly kissed Gail, who didn’t know how to react; and once again, Sam stared longingly at Andy and Nick being a couple.

This season of Rookie Blue has been really good—and I think that’s primarily due to the introduction of Chloe and the dissolution of Sam/Andy! I wish Sam would just move on and leave Andy alone and get on with his life. I really like Andy and Nick together and don’t want to see him mess up another relationship of hers—yes, I’m still bitter about Luke! 🙂 This thing with Gail all of a sudden, possibly being a lesbian seems to have come out of nowhere, but it will be interesting to see where it goes. And I’m also interested to see how the relationship between Oliver and Celery develops.

On tonight’s episode, “What I Lost,” Chris’s son is kidnapped while in Andy and Nick’s care.

To see how Andy and Nick manage to get Chris’s son back, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Hollywood Game Night, Wilfred, Burn Notice, Graceland, Supermarket Superstar, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

Jenny’s Choice

supermarketsuperstarsmallI’ve been watching Supermarket Superstar on Lifetime since the first episode, and it’s kind of surprisingly enjoyable. Three contestants compete with a food dish of their choice in the theme of the episode. The judges, including Debbi Fields of Mrs. Fields baked goods, taste the creations and give their opinions on how the contestants can make their products better. The contestants then tweak their recipes and prepare them for a a focus group, and then once the focus group gives their opinions on each of the dishes, the judges send one contestant home. From there, the remaining two go tweak their logos and packaging, as well as finish tweaking their recipes if needed, and then they present it all to a major supermarket mogul, who ultimately picks a winner. Last week was so funny. It was all about natural foods—and one of the guys made a protein bar primarily composed of crickets. Chirp!

On tonight’s episode, “Baked Goods,” a mother, a competitive “It Girl,” and an injured stunt man compete to get their baked goods on to supermarket shelves.

Find out what they’re baking and who rises to the top tonight on Lifetime at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Burn Notice, Motive, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, Hollywood Game Night, Owner’s Manual, & Sullivan & Son.

Megan’s Choice

hollywoodgamenightsmallWho doesn’t love a good night of games? The best part of Hollywood Game Night is that it is pure, simple fun. I love watching the celebrities try so hard to think of ways to win the game, especially when they have to figure out how to explain something with only one or two words—some of those are hard! Overall, it’s a fantastic night of television that is fun for the whole family.

On tonight’s episode, “The Celebrity Game Show,” contestants play unique party games with celebrities Kristin Chenoweth, Felicity Huffman, Dominic Monaghan, Aubrey Plaza, Molly Shannon, and Wilmer Valderrama.

To play a good game of charades, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Rookie Blue and Wipeout.

JJ’s Choice

projectrunwaysmallLast week’s episode of Project Runway was spectacular, mostly because of Sandro’s breakdown. He was already getting on my nerves, and both Helen and Ken where right to call him out on it. But the bottom 3 (including Helen) were very lucky with Sandro’s withdrawal, because some of the garments were very bad. Hopefully, tonight will be better as far as the designs go.

On tonight’s episode, “You Choose Your Materials!,” the designers split into small teams so they can create minicollections inspired by items from four varied retailers.

Find out which designer has sewn their last stitch tonight on Lifetime at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Hollywood Game Night.
