Happy Hump Day! It’s a big day for me because I just watched the Bones season premiere (what can I say but fantastic and amazing?) and I get to talk to executive producers Hart Hanson & Stephen Nathan. Yay me! 😉 I’d like to welcome JJ to the Remote posts. He’s going to even up the group at two guys & two girls, which will be helpful once the new season starts. 🙂 So let’s get to it. Check out what we think you should be watching tonight. 😀

I’m sad because tonight is the season finale of the last two summer shows on TV Land: The Soul Man & The Exes. It’s been a great season for both. On The Soul Man, we were introduced this season to ex-R&B singer Boyce â€œThe Voiceâ€ Ballentine (played by Cedric the Entertainer), his wife Lolli (played by Niecy Nash), daughter Lyric, father Barton (played by Everwood’s John Beasley), and brother Stamps (played by What I Like About You’s Wesley Jonathan). The entire family is fantastic, and the chemistry is terrific. When Barton retired from preaching, Boyce retired from singing and took over as preacher at his father’s church. There’s been conflict between the two because Barton has been having a hard time letting go of the pulpit, but you can feel the love between not only them but the entire family. I’ve really enjoyed it and was thrilled when I learned it has been renewed for a second season.
In tonight’s episode, â€œMomma’s Home,â€ Barton’s ex-wife Della (played by the incomparable Loretta Devine) arrives in St. Louis while the town is experiencing a blackout; Boyce counsels Barton and Della, and things take an unexpected turn. Lolli begins to suspect that she is pregnant. Stamps realizes it is time for him to grow up.
