It’s been a great week for TV so far. I’m loving this summer season! There’s a lot on tonight, too, so Megan, Kyle, & I are here to give our recommendations!
Last week on Melissa & Joey, Mel’s childhood friend Austin moved back to town. Joe had a feeling that Austin liked Mel more than just a friend, and when Mel questioned him about it, he said it was true. Then Joe realized that Austin looked a lot like Mel’s dad and thought maybe Austin was her half brother. They figured out he was wrong, and much to Joe’s sadness, Mel and Austin are now dating. Meanwhile, Lennox found a new sponsor for her blog, but then she found out they participated in unfair labor practices, so she decided to get a new phone and not use the fancy new phone she’d bought with the money from the sponsorship. (Of course, Mel gave Lennox her phone and kept Lennox’s for herself. *laugh*)
On tonight’s episode, “The Truth Hurts,” Joe accidentally injures Mel’s boyfriend, Austin (guest star Trevor Donovan), during a competitive game of pool. Mel accuses Joe of doing it on purpose to ruin her romantic weekend getaway. Meanwhile, Joe invites a nerdy kid to join Ryder in his home school studies, and Lennox takes to psychoanalyzing everyone in the house.
See what Lennox has to say about the others tonight on ABC Family at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Baby Daddy, The American Baking Competition, Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, Royal Pains, Hot in Cleveland, Top Shot, The Exes, & The Soul Man.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.
MasterChef has become a must-watch show in my house—Brad and I love to watch it together. We especially like to discuss who we like and who we don’t. We both like Krissi and Jonny—although at times, Krissi’s personality is a little overbearing. Last episode, we said goodbye to Bime after he cooked a horrible version of a meringue pie that actually resembled soup with fluff on top. He never really had what it took to be the winner anyway.
On tonight’s episode, “Top 13 Compete/Top 12 Compete,” the remaining contestants must think on their feet when they cook a mystery box challenge with the most unexpected ingredient and a limited pantry. Later, in the elimination round, season three winner Christine Ha, the first ever blind contestant, returns to MasterChef with a big surprise for the contestants. Then, the home cooks prepare an unforgettable meal for a wedding party. The winning team is safe from elimination, while the losing team faces a pressure test involving macaroons. In the end, two more home cooks will be eliminated.
To see how the contestants measure up this week, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching The American Baking Competition and Big Brother.
Big Brother is back tonight for its 15th season! I haven’t read too much because I didn’t want to spoil any surprises. However, I do know that this year, there will be more contestants and the show will run longer (usually it doesn’t even start until after the 4th of July). Also, this year, they are promising no more floaters, thanks to some of the season’s twists—including having 3 nominees up for eviction.
I’m looking forward to meeting the new houseguests (who seem awfully young this year—the oldest person in the house is 38). I was disappointed to see that one of the contestants is Rachel’s sister—I couldn’t stand Rachel, so I hope either her sister is nothing like her, or she is eliminated quickly. I also hope this is the year that they finally air this show in HD. If The Amazing Race and Big Brother Canada can film in HD, so can this show!
A note to Big Brother After Dark fans—this year, the show moves to the TV Guide Network and only airs 2 hours per night, from midnight to 2am.
On tonight’s episode, the 15th season begins with the houseguests being introduced and entering the compound.
Get your first look of the new houseguests tonight on CBS at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The American Baking Competition, Family Tools, How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), MasterChef, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, Franklin & Bash, MythBusters, Royal Pains, Futurama, and The Newsroom: A Special Report.
