If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/6/11

There’s some fun stuff on tonight, but all the stuff I would be recommending, Megan, Lisa, and Jason are giving you, so I’m sticking to writing the intro and letting them flip your channels. 😉 Enjoy, and let us know what you’re going to be watching! – Jenny

Megan’s Choice

I’m excited for tonight’s season premiere of Masterchef, especially because last week was so slow. Gordon Ramsay is amazing with his balancing so many shows on the go. I love the fact that the contestants are usually just your every day man/woman, in some cases.

On tonight’s episode, after a nationwide search, 100 of the best amateur cooks in America, including a police officer, an oil rig engineer, a professional poker player, and a tattoo shop owner are sent to Los Angeles, where they hope to walk away with the grand prize.

Don’t miss it tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Masterchef @ Clicker.

Jason’s Choice

Mondays will be really good once July rolls around, but until then, it will be pretty sparse pickings. So, tonight, my pick is the series premiere of Switched at Birth on ABC Family. Two families, one rich and one not so much, come to find that their now teen daughters were accidentally switched at the hospital they were delivered in. This is a great premise to come at the family drama with, and they do a good job with it, even if just about everything gets set up just the way you’d expect. But once we get past that in the first two episode, we are left with a solid family drama that is 1000 times better than the show (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) it will be following on Monday nights.

Switched at Birth premieres tonight on ABC Family at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Switched at Birth @ Clicker.
 

Lisa’s Choice #1

It’s all been leading up to the birth of her baby, and Adrian has been really looking forward to that moment. She and Ben have been preparing for the imminent arrival of their daughter, and even had a baby shower–granted, one that was drama filled. So far, Adrian’s had an easy pregnancy, and as she and Ben prepare for their happy day, Amy and Ricky continue to get closer. So many relationships have grown so much this season on Secret Life. Where will they take them next?

Tonight on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, when Adrian experiences discomfort, the couple, who believes that she is going into labor, are instructed by their doctor to leave for the hospital. Ben and Adrian agree to not call anyone until they know more. Somehow, word spreads that they are at the hospital, and their friends and family show up in order to share in Ben and Adrian’s joyous occasion. Is it time to bring Adrian and Ben’s bundle of joy into the world?

Lisa’s Choice #2

Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit into your family, that you were out of place? Maybe you’ve wished that you had a whole other life? For Switched at Birth characters, Bay Kennish and Daphne Vasquez, it’s a reality. This one hour scripted drama tells the story of two teenage girls who discover that they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. Bay grew up in a wealthy family, with two parents and a brother, while Daphne, who has lost her hearing at an early age due to a case of meningitis, has grown up with a single mother in a working-class neighborhood. Everything comes to a hugely dramatic head when the two families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for both of the girls.

Daphne’s and Bay’s lives are changed forever when they find out they have been switched at birth.

Watch the Switched at Birth pilot tonight at 9/8c on ABC Family. Learn where to find episodes online of Switched at Birth @ Clicker.
