If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/19/19

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!

Jenny’s Choice

My pick this week (literally, my only one 😉 ) is Food Network’s latest, Family Restaurant Rivals. Valerie Bertinelli hosts as families (who all have their own family run restaurants…) compete in challenges requiring them to overcome real-life restaurant curve balls to win over the judges in order to win the $10,000 prize. The rotating panel of judges includes Kardea Brown, Alex Guarnaschelli, Robert Irvine, Clinton Kelly, Antonia Lofaso, Simon Majumdar, Christian Petroni, Aarti Sequeira, Jet Tila, & more.

This isn’t a new idea… In fact, it isn’t even new on Food Network. Back in March, they aired the 13-episode competition series Family Food Showdown. It’s basically the same exact show but this time the families all have their own restaurants. I enjoyed the other, so I’m hoping this will be the same.

On tonight’s episode, “The Family That Cooks Together,” Chinese-American, Jewish, and Italian-American families face off to see whose family restaurant fare is the best. In round one, Valerie asks the teams to adapt their restaurants’ best lunch combos for picky eaters. The two families who remain in round two have to make an impressive noodle dish with a twist that wows the judges, and the winning family takes home the $10,000 prize.

Don’t miss another fun show tonight on Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids Baking Championship, So You Think You Can Dance, & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
