Chopped Junior logoI love watching the “kid” version of cooking competition shows because the kids are always so damn talented. And Chopped Junior is no different. It’s crazy because they really don’t make it any easier for the kids than they do for the adults in terms of ingredients and challenges (like must fry or no oven, etc). So I got excited when I learned we were getting six episodes starting tonight, with the recurring Chopped judges joined by special guest stars such as Anthony Anderson, Nikki Bella, Kardea Brown, Clinton Kelly, and Bailee Madison.

On tonight’s episode, “Smoothie Operators,” four young cooking dynamos try to impress the judges, including guest judge Jessica Alba, with appetizers that include beef tongue; a sweet orange cream smoothie in the entree basket; and a giant lollipop and an odd sandwich in the dessert round.

Meet the first group of young chefs tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Blood & Treasure, Chopped, Sweet Home Sextuplets, & Songland.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/3/15

rookieblue93smallWhat a rollercoaster this season of Rookie Blue has been, and tonight it all comes to a head. Last week, we watched as Andy started her usual panic mode when things got rough between her and Sam, but this time, Sam was the mature one and told Andy they should try something different this time, staying together. Andy admits that she was never going anywhere at all and that she loved him. I was swooning when Sam said he loved the baby and wanted more babies with Andy — a long time coming, but I’m certainly glad we got here. Elsewhere, we watched as Gail was put in the difficult position of testifying with her father putting pressure on her to lie so that Steve had a good alibi. Steve stood up and did the right thing by confessing to the judge and taking a plea deal. I’m interested in seeing what happens with Gail and Sophie, because it’d be a shame to see her end up with someone else.

On tonight’s finale, “Epiphanies,” as the restructuring of 15 Division looms, Andy and Sam’s wedding comes just in time for everyone to celebrate one last time. But when Andy is taken off-course by a hitchhiker and then stranded on the side of the road with a dying man, she finds herself with no way to get help — or let Sam know her situation. Will she be able to save the man’s life? And will she make it to her wedding?

Tune in to ABC at 10/9c to see how it all ends up.

I’ll also be watching Food Fighters, Chopped, and Mistresses.

rookieblue813smallRookie Blue has had a good season so far. I was afraid that Marlo’s pregnancy would mean major trouble for Sam and Andy, but so far, they’ve been able to work through it. Hopefully that continues. Meanwhile, Oliver is still a suspect for being the dirty cop and planting the bomb, but I have no doubt whatsoever that they’ll clear his name. The question is: Is Steve Peck really dirty or is this some sort of misdirection?

On tonight’s episode, “Integrity Test,” with Oliver still the prime suspect in the bombing of 15 Division’s evidence room, Andy, Dov, Gail, and Nick come up with a risky and potentially career-ending plan to prove Oliver is being set up by Commissioner Alonso Santana. Meanwhile, Traci shadows Steve Peck, hoping to calm her fears about his involvement in the bombing.

See what Traci learns tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Boom!, Food Fighters, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Beat Bobby Flay, & Geeks Who Drink.

bigbrother2015smallBig Brother season 17 is off to a great start. On Thursday, Jace became the first player to be evicted, and I can’t say that I will miss him. We also learned that it is Liz who is playing the game with her sister as part of the Twin Twist. Kathy Griffin was introduced as this week’s BB Takeover host, and she hinted to the houseguests that one of them will receive a “Last Laugh” power for eviction night. This power will give its bearer the ability to prevent 3 people from voting at the next eviction ceremony — this could be very interesting! The episode ended with the Head of Household competitions, with Becky winning round one and Shelli winning round two.

I am getting really sick of Audrey — she reminds me of the guy last season who took it upon himself to keep inviting more and more people into his alliance without talking with the others. She is way too paranoid and a loose cannon. She needs to go. Also, Da’Vonne went a little crazy last week, picking a fight with Clay after he asked why she was creepily wandering around the house. Wouldn’t mind seeing her gone as well. One person I do want to stick around is Liz. I would love to see her successfully complete the 5 weeks of the Twin Twist. I would be so stressed out trying to pass myself off as my twin brother. I don’t know how they do it, especially with only 15 minutes to catch the other up with everything that has gone on since the last swap! (I’m so happy the Twin Twist is back. It was one of my favorites, and I have been anxiously awaiting its return.)

On tonight’s episode, Becky and Shelli make their nominations for eviction.

See who Becky & Shelli nominate tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Celebrity Family Feud, BattleBots, Food Network Star, The Last Ship, Falling Skies, Humans, Halt and Catch Fire, and The Brink.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/3/14

Comic-Con is less than three weeks away, and now I’m in full panic mode as panel and press room schedules are starting to go out. This will be the first year I’ll be officially attending as press, so I’m trying to schedule more press-y things than ever before. Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, which means there’s pretty much just fireworks on TV. So we’ve got some recommendations to help you get ready for the long (slow tv) weekend.

bigbrother2012smallLast night on Big Brother, Caleb and Devin got paranoid that greenskeeper Donny was actually a Navy Seal or some kind of super soldier. So they made him the target of “Bomb Squad” alliance. It was heartbreaking to see how trustful Donny was toward Devin and how much of a jerk he was in return. Fortunately, the not-so-simple-minded Donny won the spelling veto competition by leaps and bounds. So when Donny took himself off the block, Caleb put Joey up in his place because she tried to start an all-girl alliance.

Tonight, we get the first eviction of the new season of Big Brother, and either Paola or Joey will be sent packing. I don’t really care which one goes—I am just so happy that Donny was able to save himself last night, because I really want him to win!

Find out who gets sent home tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Undateable, Defiance, Dominion, and Rectify.
