If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/10/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

significantmothersmallLast week, The CW kicked off its new scripted comedy Significant Mother. In the premiere, Nate (Josh Zuckerman, 90210) came home from a business trip to discover that his roommate/best friend Jimmy (Nathaniel Buzolic, The Vampire Diaries) is hooking up with his mother Lydia (Krista Allen, Days of Our Lives). The premiere mainly consisted of Jimmy freaking out, which was humorous but gave no indication as to what the weekly show is going to be like. (Though, if it’s just Jimmy freaking out all the time, I could live with that.)

I really liked that cast, and the premise seems like it could be a lot of fun — my only concern is that The CW doesn’t really have a great track record with these half-hour sitcoms. They seem to pull/cancel them rather quickly. I’m not sure why The CW keeps trying to get into the half-hour comedy business, but I hope this one actually sticks around.

On tonight’s episode, “Mixed Doubles,” Lydia and Jimmy plan a date in public to rebuff Nate’s contention that they’re not serious about their relationship. Nate, meanwhile, goes on a date with an older woman he meets at a restaurant; and Atticus prepares for a perfect evening with Sam.

To see how Lydia & Jimmy’s date goes, tune in to The CW at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Chasing Life, Becoming Us, Major Crimes, Murder in the First, Devious Maids, and Teen Wolf.

Jenny’s Choice

penntellerfoolussmallI was planning on recommending the summer finale of Major Crimes, but due to the unplanned hospital stay, I’m about three episodes behind on that. So my pick tonight is Penn & Teller: Fool Us. I’ve recommended it before, but that’s okay because it honestly is one of my favorite “easy watching” shows. Penn & Teller are amazing magicians, but I love watching any magic from any magicians, as long as they’re good, and the magicians on this show are always great. I can hardly ever figure out how the tricks are done, and even though Penn & Teller have seen or performed 99.99% of the tricks done on the show, it’s always entertaining.

On tonight’s episode, “Fool Me Once,” the magicians featured to perform in front of Penn & Teller for the chance to perform with them in Las Vegas include Jay Sankey, Greg Wilson, Trigg Watson, and Jen Kramer.

See if anyone can fool two of the world’s top magicians tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Cake Wars, So You Think You Can Dance, Major Crimes, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Murder in the First, & Great American Food Finds.
