It’s Hump Day! That means not only are we looking at some great shows, but also it’s midway through the week, so we’re that much closer to the weekend! Yay! 🙂 Kyle’s catching up on shows from earlier in the week, so Megan and I are here to give you our recommendations.
Jenny’s Choice #1
Last week on Hot in Cleveland, the ladies learned that Elka had written a play. They decided to go see it, and there, they learned it was about them and when they moved in. The characters were all basically caricatures. All their “worst” features were exaggerated. “Melanie” was way too perky and wanted people to like her. “Victoria” was self-centered and all about telling people she was famous. Last but certainly not lease, “Joy” was actually played by a man. The ladies were really offended and embarrassed, so they left early. In the end, they went back because they wanted to see how the play ended. They were shocked when Elka had ended the play by thanking them for shaking up her world. It was cute.
On tonight’s episode, “Auction Heroes,” Joy decides to finally tell Mitch how she feels, but a handsome yet scheming dating coach gets in the way. Meanwhile, Victoria is surprisingly taken with a very Cleveland-y screenwriter. Tim Daly, Coby Bell, & Dan Lauria guest star.
Find out if Joy is able to tell Mitch her feelings tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

Summer is always fun, but sometimes, we need some extra drama to keep us satisfied, and that is exactly what Taxi Brooklyn has been bringing. Edge of your seat, delicious drama. I have missed Chyler Leigh since her days on Grey’s Anatomy, so it was really refreshing to have her back on my television, especially with her adorable short hair. The story of Cat searching for her father’s murderer as she becomes a sponsor for the taxi driver Leo is so well done that I’m hooked. Last episode had me biting my nails as Leo’s friend was beaten to death and we were taken on a search deeper into the mob family that may be behind Cat’s dad’s death. I’m curious to see where the relationship with her ex-husband is headed and how he helps her with her investigation.
On tonight’s episode, “Precious Cargo,” Cat and Leo investigate the murder of a foster mom, and Cat develops a bond with one of the foster children involved in the case.
To see if they can help solve the case, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance, Extant, and Big Brother.
Jenny’s Choice #2
My second pick tonight is also on TV Land. Jennifer Falls is really funny, and I love Jaime Pressly in the lead role. Last week, Jennifer planned a “staycation” for herself and her daughter, who wasn’t overly enthused. Then Jennifer’s best friend Dina invited herself, and the teenager got a lot more excited. Unfortunately, Jennifer ended up missing most of it because she got involved with a Skype interview, which was going well until she “blew it” by worrying more about her daughter and their staycation than the interview. She was okay with that, when she basically realized she didn’t want to go back to the way things had been. Of course, while she was interviewing, Dina allowed her daughter to drink, and once off the call, she had to go pick her up from where she was hanging out with her friends.
On tonight’s episode, “School Trouble,” when Jennifer finds out that her daughter Gretchen is getting into trouble at school, she gets involved and ends up having to go up against her old nemesis: her high school vice principal. Meanwhile, Dina tries to relive her glory days by playing a one-on-one basketball game with a high school girl, and Wayne and Stephanie are not on the same page about what they want for their future. Dennis Haskins (Saved By The Bell) guest stars.
See if Jennifer can get to the bottom of her daughter’s school trouble tonight on TV Land at 10:30/9:30c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, Restaurant Stakeout, Rowhouse Showdown, Tiny House Nation, Motive, & Taxi Brooklyn.
