Did you have a good Monday? I slept most of the afternoon after having not slept Sunday night, so my Monday was weird. Hopefully my Tuesday will be different! I’ve got stuff I need to do! But there’s plenty for me to watch tonight, regardless, so check out our recommendations. 🙂
I love when Chopped does special episodes and tournaments. I loved the lunch ladies. There’s been episodes of moms and dads, members of the Armed Forces, and quite a few more, but honestly, one of the ones that’s always the most fun is the teens. It’s amazing to see what kids even as young as fourteen can do in the kitchen. They’re truly incredible to watch, and I love seeing how bright a future they have. Tonight is the start of the first ever teen tournament. For four weeks, four sets of four teens will compete to earn a spot in the grand finale. On tonight’s first round, there are three 16-year-olds (Alexandria, Ashley, & Jay) and one 14-year-old (Jason). I can’t wait to see how well they all handle the pressure of the Chopped kitchen.
On tonight’s episode, “Teen Tournament: Part One,” four young cooks must utilize lamb loin chops and kale chips in the Appetizer Round; french fries and cookies make an appearance in the Entree Round; in the Dessert Round, the teens must transform a frozen treat into a dessert.
See which of the four amazingly talented young cooks comes out on top tonight on Food Network at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Buddy’s Bakery Rescue, America’s Got Talent, Married at First Sight, Next Great Baker, Rizzoli & Isles, Royal Pains, Underground BBQ Challenge, Restaurant Startup, & Sullivan & Son.

Tonight, the El Rey Network kicks off its second original series, Matador. Undercover DEA Agent Tony Bravo (Gabriel Luna) is recruited by the CIA to infiltrate the L.A. Riot soccer team and report on the corrupt dealings of team owner Andrés Galan (Alfred Molina). In exchange for his assistance, his handler Annie (Nicky Whelan) agrees to help arrange the parole of his imprisoned brother.
While Comcast doesn’t offer the El Rey Network (looks like it may be limited to DirecTV & Time Warner Cable), tonight’s premiere was made available early via iTunes, Vudu, Amazon, etc., so I was able to watch the episode. The series has director Robert Rodriguez’s usual blend of action and comedy, and it was a lot of fun to watch—perfect summer television fare! So if you are one of the lucky folks who actually receive the El Rey Network, then you should definitely check this show out!
On tonight’s episode, “Quid Go Pro,” DEA Agent Tony Bravo is recruited to investigate the L.A. Riot soccer team by going undercover as one of the players.
To see if this new show’s for you, tune in to El Rey Network at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Celebrity Wife Swap, The Night Shift, Chasing Life, Tyrant, Royal Pains, Covert Affairs, Inside the Walking Dead: Walker University, and Nathan for You.
