If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/10/14

What a week. Temperatures here in Kansas got up high again yesterday—although 91 isn’t as high as it got a few weeks ago—but for the next few days, it’s supposed to be cooler—in fact, today’s supposed to be 75, then 70 on Thursday, and a whopping 59 on Friday. So I’m going to thoroughly enjoy the nice cool weather the rest of the week! As for tonight, there’s some great stuff on, so I’ll be camped out in front of the TV while I stay cool in the AC. Check out what Kyle & I are recommending.

Jenny’s Choice

rowhouseshowdownsmallIt’s been a fun season of Rowhouse Showdown. You probably know by now that I’m not a fan of Josh & Geoff—at all… Last week, Josh got it into his head that Katie & Dan had overspent their budget, so he tattled as quick as he could to Carter. I’m not saying he shouldn’t have brought it up if he truly thought they had—it’s a competition, and if someone cheats, you gotta call ’em on it—but the glee with which he did it showed once again how little character the guy has. If I were Katie or Dan, I’d have been thumbing my nose at him, singing nah-nah-nah-boo-boo, when Carter announced that he’d gone through their receipts and they were under budget, not over. Thankfully, they played it cool. But because of their poor decision to paint, rather than stain, their outside stairs and their missing $1K because Josh & Geoff had taken it from them the week before, their curb appeal was judged least impressive and they lost. It made me sad, because by far, they’re my favorite team.

Tonight is the season finale, and I can’t wait to find out who takes home the prize. I want Katie & Dan to win, especially because they really tried to make the house a home for a family, rather than just some (sometimes odd) sense of style. I’ll be very unhappy if Josh & Geoff win, and I highly doubt the Miami girls will win, so definitely crossing my fingers!

On tonight’s episode, “Finale!” an open house is held for all of the houses to celebrate the work that was put into rejuvenating the neighborhood; attendees are asked to vote on their favorite house, and one room ruins chances for one of the teams; that team is to fix the problem.

Find out which team’s room ruins their chances and which team comes out on top tonight on FYI at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, America’s Got Talent, Mystery Diners, Hot in Cleveland, Tiny House Nation, Top Chef Duels, & Wahlburgers.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/9/14

It’s been a very active summer so far, and I’m loving it. We’ve been doing lots of fishing and going swimming a lot, but at the end of the day, I look forward to some great new television. There’s been quite a few shows that are really hitting it out of the park this summer season, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2014smallLast week, So You Think You Can Dance absolutely blew me away with the level of talent the top 20 displayed. Ricky and Jessica were incredible. Their contemporary routine, choreographed by Sonya, was just mesmerizing. I also enjoyed Teddy and Emilio, but mostly because I really like Emilio and I’m rooting for him to go far. The people I think are in danger of being eliminated are Jackie or Jourdan, because their routine was forgettable. Whatever the results, I’m looking forward to seeing what else this season has to offer.

On tonight’s episode, the Top 20 perform again and then two are eliminated.

To see who makes it through to next week, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Big Brother, Extant, Taxi Brooklyn, and The Bridge.
