If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/21/20

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 for tonight was pretty obvious when I saw TBS’s new show, Tournament of Laughs. Hosted by Jason Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live), the show features 32 comedians who will face off in a hilarious, single-elimination bracket-style tournament, with each episode featuring multiple match-ups. The comics will go head-to-head virtually to out-funny one another with Sudeikis acting as the master of ceremonies and providing color commentary. Roast Master Jeff Ross, Margaret Cho, Judah Friedlander, Michael Rapaport, Fortune Feimster, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Natasha Leggero, Godfrey, Mary Lynn Rajskub (24), Preacher Lawson, and Piff The Magic Dragon are just a few of the comics performing.

Each week the comics will create, produce, self-film, and star in their own videos — from stand-up sets to song parodies and everything in-between. After the episode has aired, the home audience will decide who moves forward, via phone and online voting, with the winning comics returning for the next round. The final episode will feature an expert comedy panel charged with crowning a winner in the championship match-up for the last laugh and bragging rights as tournament champion. In addition, a charitable donation will be made to the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and Black Lives Matter.

On tonight’s episode, “And a Round of 32 We Go Part 1,” the first round of the tournament kicks off with Jeff Ross, Margaret Cho, and Gilbert Gottfried shooting for big laughs.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on TBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Symon’s Dinners Cooking Out, Hollywood Game Night, John Legend and Family: A Bigger Love Father’s Day, Renovation Island, Worst Cooks in America, & Beat Bobby Flay.
