If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/11/17

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!

Jenny’s Choice

It’s a new reality/game show block on ABC starting tonight, and I couldn’t be more excited. First up is the fourth season premiere of Celebrity Family Feud. My family and I love watching Family Feud. Our favorite hosts are Steve Harvey and, from way back when, Richard Dawson. Thankfully, Steve Harvey is the host of Celebrity Family Feud, because he makes this show fantastic. The celeb families are usually pretty fun too. Tonight’s first game features singer/American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson (along with her friends and family: sister Alyssa, friends Shane and Ashley, and personal assistant Tricia) and comedian Amy Schumer (along with friends and family: sister Kim, friend Kevin, brother Jason, and sister-in-law Cayce). The second game features DWTS winner Bindi Irwin (along with her family: mother Terri, brother Robert, and cousins Daniel and Sara) and actress Chrissy Metz from This Is Us (along with her family: mother Denise and sisters Monica, Morgana, and Abigail). The four of them will compete for their favorite charities.

Following that show is new series Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, which is a little like Shark Tank…but a lot more lively. In each episode, aspiring inventors will go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products, or companies. The audience will vote to determine the winner of each head-to-head battle. In the end, Steve will present the inventors with a major dilemma. One of the inventors is allowed to cash out and walk away for a lesser amount. If they cash out, they can’t win the whole cash prize for that round. If they lost the crowd vote, then they’re better off. If not… Oops? Some of this week’s inventions are an all-in-one picture-hanging tool, vegan soaps, and a holistic soap that helps keep a woman’s private parts fresh and clean. (Wtf? LOL) This show could be a lot of fun, given that Steve Harvey is hosting. The previews I’ve seen have him laughing and having a lot of fun with some of the products. I’m hoping it’ll be really enjoyable!

Finally, The $100,000 Pyramid is back with Michael Strahan hosting. Pyramid is always one of my favorite game shows to watch on reruns, and I loved the first season of this one. So I’m excited to have it back for season 2 tonight. First up it’s actress Leslie Jones vs actor/musician LL Cool J. The second episode features host Tom Bergeron vs singer Jennifer Nettles. Both episodes should be fun to watch, but I think Tom and Jennifer will play a better game. Guess I’ll see if I’m right!

Catch all the fun and excitement tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games & Food Network Star.
