If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/31/18

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!

Jenny’s Choice

I love shows on HGTV, especially the competition shows. NBC has a new competition show that starts tonight, and while Making It isn’t exactly like the shows on HGTV, it’s a lot of fun. Eight craftspeople from across the country come together to compete in one-of-a-kind challenges – a “Faster Craft” shorter challenge and a “Master Craft” longer one – in order to avoid elimination and eventually be crowned “Master Maker.” Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman are the hosts, while Etsy trend expert Dayna Isom-Johnson and Barney’s Creative Ambassador Simon Doonan serve as judges.

I didn’t watch Parks and Recreation, but Amy Poehler is always funny when I see her in other things and usually with Tina Fey. But she and Nick are really good friends in real life and Nick is a woodworker and craftsman himself – a really good one, apparently. I’ve seen a handful of episodes of Making It, and they are both funny, and their chemistry and friendship is undeniable. It makes for a very fun show!

On tonight’s episode, “Meet Your Makers,” the eight craftspeople participate in a “Secret Beast” faster craft and a “Modern Heirloom” master craft challenge.

Check out this fun new show tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent & Chopped.
