If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/25/14

Wow… Looking ahead to the schedule this week, it’s pretty darn empty compared to the last little while! I think we can all use a break from the heavy amount of shows. In fact, I think Kyle was going to pull his hair out when we realized how many screeners for some of the summer shows as well as the first go-round of pilots started showing up! Fortunately, even though it’s a fairly light week, there’s still some good stuff on, so check out what we’re recommending tonight. 🙂

americandreambuilderssmallI’ve really loved American Dream Builders this season. It’s not a completely new concept, but there’s enough different and enough interesting personalities to make it a lot of fun to watch. I was so glad last week when Elaine was sent home. Sure, she’s been a bit better in recent weeks than she was for the first half (at least) of the series, but she was still overconfident, pompous, and rather witchy. And while I didn’t hate the red room as much as the others, I did see that it didn’t match the rest of the house at all. Find another way to work in the bold pop of color, but do it in a way that fits in with the house and the rest of the rooms, ya know? But what do I know? I’m certainly no designer. Anyway, I’m thrilled to pieces that it’s Lukas and Jay in the final two. Jay is really beginning to grow as a designer, instead of being a builder who does some design on the side, and Lukas has a great way of taking his minimalist POV and making it fit with the design and flow of the house. It should be an excellent finale, and honestly, I’ll be happy with whoever wins.

On tonight’s episode, “Beach Home,” after nine weeks and 19 renovations, the final two designers meet their final challenge. In their biggest renovation to date, they must transform two dream beach homes in Ventura, Calif. Luckily, they won’t have to go at it alone. They are reunited with a few surprise guests to help them. One designer will win the grand prize of $250,000 and be crowned as the first American Dream Builder.

See how the final renovations go and who comes out the winner tonight on the 2-hour finale on NBC at 7/6c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Iron Chef America, Cutthroat Kitchen, Salem, & Kitchen Casino.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/16/14

Oh my gosh. I think Colin Mochrie may be the funniest man on TV. We watched the Colin & Brad: Two Man Group special on Saturday night while we were eating dinner. I took a drink at an unfortunate spot and literally did a spit take all over the table and beyond at a joke about asthmatic fish. It went up my nose and everything. Kind of awesome. LOL Anyway, nothing that funny on tonight, but we do have a few shows we’re recommending, so check them out. 🙂

choppedsmallRight now, Chopped is running their Tournament of Stars. Last week featured sports stars Greg Louganis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee (the actual JJK, not the character on The Neighbors 😉 ), Charles Oakley, & Brandi Chastain. Jackie went home first, then Charles, leaving Greg and Brandi in the dessert round. Greg made ginger ice cream, while Brandi made ice box cake, and she took home the win to send her into the next round of the tournament. This week’s chefs feature four great Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off contestants, and since I’ve watched every episode of that, I’m very excited!

On tonight’s episode, “Rachael vs. Guy,” Coolio, Lou Diamond Phillips, Penn Jillette, and Carnie Wilson have to deal with beef tongue and microwaveable chocolate cake in the appetizer round, leftover slices of pizza in the entree round, and chocolate bars and banana chips in the dessert round.

Find out who goes home the winner tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Buy This Restaurant, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Food Court Wars, Believe, Resurrection, Catch a Contractor, Crisis, Cutthroat Kitchen, & The Mentalist.
