If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/9/17

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

ABC’s new game show Big Fan gives superfans the chance to meet their idols. In each episode, host Andy Richter welcomes a celebrity and three of his or her biggest fans to the stage to compete to see who knows the star the best. In the first two rounds the fans answer questions about the celebrity, and the fan who has the least number of points at the end of each round is eliminated. In the final round, the last remaining fan competes head-to-head with the star to see if they know them better than they know themselves. If the fan answers more questions correctly than the celebrity, they take home the Little Fan award, plus an amazing collection of memorabilia provided by the star.

This show is a lot of fun, bordering on a bit creepy. 🙂 The celebrity definitely needs to have a good sense of humor about themselves. I hope all the episodes are as hilarious as tonight’s premiere with Matthew McConaughey. It looks like there are currently only four 30-minutes episodes on the schedule – two airing tonight and another two next week. Hopefully this show will do well for ABC and we’ll get more celebrity/superfan encounters in the future.

On tonight’s first episode, “Big Fan Matthew McConaughey,” actor Matthew McConaughey goes head-to-head with three of his fans. Then, in “Big Fan Aaron Rodgers,” fans meet professional football player Aaron Rodgers, and TV host Alex Trebek gives Andy some pointers.

Find out who knows Matthew and Aaron best tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The New Celebrity Apprentice and Beyond.
