What a week. Temperatures here in Kansas got up high again yesterday—although 91 isn’t as high as it got a few weeks ago—but for the next few days, it’s supposed to be cooler—in fact, today’s supposed to be 75, then 70 on Thursday, and a whopping 59 on Friday. So I’m going to thoroughly enjoy the nice cool weather the rest of the week! As for tonight, there’s some great stuff on, so I’ll be camped out in front of the TV while I stay cool in the AC. Check out what Kyle & I are recommending.
It’s been a fun season of Rowhouse Showdown. You probably know by now that I’m not a fan of Josh & Geoff—at all… Last week, Josh got it into his head that Katie & Dan had overspent their budget, so he tattled as quick as he could to Carter. I’m not saying he shouldn’t have brought it up if he truly thought they had—it’s a competition, and if someone cheats, you gotta call ’em on it—but the glee with which he did it showed once again how little character the guy has. If I were Katie or Dan, I’d have been thumbing my nose at him, singing nah-nah-nah-boo-boo, when Carter announced that he’d gone through their receipts and they were under budget, not over. Thankfully, they played it cool. But because of their poor decision to paint, rather than stain, their outside stairs and their missing $1K because Josh & Geoff had taken it from them the week before, their curb appeal was judged least impressive and they lost. It made me sad, because by far, they’re my favorite team.
Tonight is the season finale, and I can’t wait to find out who takes home the prize. I want Katie & Dan to win, especially because they really tried to make the house a home for a family, rather than just some (sometimes odd) sense of style. I’ll be very unhappy if Josh & Geoff win, and I highly doubt the Miami girls will win, so definitely crossing my fingers!
On tonight’s episode, “Finale!” an open house is held for all of the houses to celebrate the work that was put into rejuvenating the neighborhood; attendees are asked to vote on their favorite house, and one room ruins chances for one of the teams; that team is to fix the problem.
Find out which team’s room ruins their chances and which team comes out on top tonight on FYI at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, America’s Got Talent, Mystery Diners, Hot in Cleveland, Tiny House Nation, Top Chef Duels, & Wahlburgers.

Tonight, the first season of NBC’s summer series Taxi Brooklyn comes to a close. Two weeks ago, the series did a more intense episode that paid homage to the original Assault on Precinct 13 film—they even used similar music to set the mood. And last week, the show brought the humor, with Leo entering an amateur basketball tournament to win money to bring his son to the United States and Cat having to step in when his basketball partner couldn’t compete. There was also a fun ongoing story of Cat having a disastrous first day back with a vehicle. The series seems to have found a nice balance of action, drama, and humor. Last week, amongst the humor, Cat also discovered that her father was a dirty cop who had been working with the Capellas. And it was most likely Lou Capella who killed him.
Will Cat seek justice against the Capellas for her father’s murder? And if so, how will she keep from meeting the same fate as her father? Will Leo’s son move to the US, and if so, how will that change his arrangement working with Cat?
On tonight’s episode, “Revenge,” Leo’s son arrives with his wife, but the trip takes an unfortunate turn. Meanwhile, Cat is forced to prove her innocence while caught up in an investigation.
To see what happens on Leo’s family’s trip and if Cat can prove her innocence, tune in to NBC at 10:01/9:01c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Extant, The League, Top Chef Duels, Legends, and Franklin & Bash.
