ABC Serves Up Primetime Game Shows On Sunday Nights

Summertime’s the time for lighter TV fare, and game shows hit the spot. This summer, ABC’s serving up primetime game shows you’ll love to play along with. The network kicks off a Sunday Fun & Games programming block tonight (June 26), premiering three 10-episode game shows which will air weekly through summer. First, on Celebrity Family Feud, the spoils all go to charities of the celebs’ choosing — so let’s hope host Steve Harvey awards the correct winners. OK, that joke’s getting old — but our beloved Feud never will! The series will feature celebrities and their immediate or TV […]

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend finale

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season Finale: Paula Needs to Get Over Josh!

Recap – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season Finale (season 1): “Paula Needs to Get Over Josh!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 4/18/16 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season finale has me a little bit shocked, though I guess I really don’t know how else things could have possibly turned out. I’m Team Greg (and, based on what I see on social media, I’m in the minority); I can be a bit snarky, and a bit jaded, just like him. Snarky and jaded as I may be, though, I still love this show (and am excited for […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 17: Why Is Josh in a Bad Mood?

Recap – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 17: “Why Is Josh in a Bad Mood?” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 4/11/16 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here. We pick up 3 days after Greg and Rebecca started “just ruining” each other, in a bedroom full of takeout boxes that, presumably, reeks of sex. Greg has to leave for work, but Rebecca doesn’t want to leave the sex cocoon — she wants to talk about the relationship evolving. But Greg’s not having it; he wants to keep things casual: “just light and polite … ‘cept in the bedroom.” Confused Rebecca acts […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 16: Josh’s Sister Is Getting Married!

Recap – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 16: “Josh’s Sister Is Getting Married!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 3/28/16 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here. At the end of last week’s episode, the Dream Ghost of Dr. Akopian got Rebecca thinking about what — and who — is in her life besides Josh. The episode ended with a very confused Josh, holding a stack of Rebecca’s photos of him with her, asking if she’s in love with him. Cliffhanger! Honestly, I thought Rebecca would spin some sort of yarn, but that dream did a number on her, and she takes […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 15: Josh Has No Idea Where I Am!

Recap – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 15: “Josh Has No Idea Where I Am!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 3/21/16 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here. Congratulations to Rachel Bloom and the entire Crazy Ex-Girlfriend cast and crew on being picked up for a second season! (More about that here.) 📝 The recap: When we left off last week, Rebecca was getting on a plane and the assumption was that she was going to Hawaii anyway — even though she had just overheard him tell Valencia he doesn’t love Rebecca. This episode starts off with Paula (and Mrs. Hernandez) […]

The Mother/Daughter Experiment Episode 2

Recap – The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition Episode 2 – “Headlines Don’t Lie …” (Lifetime, original airdate 3/8/16) Here are my three main takeaways from tonight’s episode of The Mother/Daughter Experiment: 1) Somehow Heidi and Natalie are BFFs now. I don’t know how/when/why, but whatever. 2) We might as well just call this show Other Celebrities Watch Courtney Sodden and Her Crazy Mom Be Crazy. 3) Krista has no idea what an actual medical emergency is. God help her if anything real ever happens. The episode picks up right after where Episode 1 left off: Courtney and Krista are in […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 14: Josh Is Going to Hawaii!

Recap – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 14: “Josh Is Going to Hawaii!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 3/7/16 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) In Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 14, we see the fallout from Rebecca and Josh’s kiss. Josh wrestles with telling Valencia the truth, and Paula wrestles Rebecca’s cell phone away (do.not.text.him!). Here’s a look at the episode. 💬 Best quotes from tonight: Paula (to Rebecca): God knows why you have a shrink in the first place when you have me — I give such great advice. Now let’s drink this old expired apple juice. Valencia (sure she’s […]

Recap – The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition Episode 1

The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition Episode 1 (Lifetime, original airdate 3/1/16) The first episode of The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition is titled “The Mother of All Drama.” Aptly. It could also be titled, “Heidi’s Drunk and Puking in the Hall,” or “Heidi Starts Some Sh*t Right Off the Bat.” Sweet mother of mercy, let’s see what happened on the first episode … In the first part of the show, everyone except Courtney’s mom Krista shows up, either in pairs or alone, and we’re introduced to them and what they’re all about. (In yesterday’s preview of the show, I did a […]

Recap: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 13: Josh and I Go to Los Angeles!

Recap – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 13: “Josh and I Go to Los Angeles!” – The CW, original airdate Mon. 2/29/16 (For all Crazy Ex recaps, click here.) Well, they did it. They unjumped the shark for me. I’m pretty impressed with how the writers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend handled the whole foiled fake boyfriend situation. In Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode 13, Rebecca handles the Trent situation (or, more accurately, Trent handles the Trent situation); Rebecca and a longtime rival battle it out, rap style; and the team heads to L.A. to try the hot water case. (BTW, speaking of hot water, I’ve […]

The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition — A Different Type of Mama Drama

When you throw 12 women into one house, you’re bound to get drama — that’s just a fact. When those 12 women are sets of mothers and daughters, things get more complicated. When those mother-daughter pairs are celebrities, you’d better get ready to hear a lot of bleeped-out words and watch some catfights. 😼 The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition is coming to Lifetime on March 1. This is not to be confused with the regular Mother/Daughter Experiment, which, uh, doesn’t exist. (The “Celebrity Edition” thing really threw me for a loop.) I couldn’t care less about regular mother-daughter problems. I […]
