Do you ever get this strange empty feeling -- seemingly for no reason -- only to realize later on it was to due the lack of Roseanne Barr in your life? No, neither do we. But just in case your answer was yes, tonight would be a good time to turn on the TV. Roseanne is finally returning to the limelight with her new docu-series, the thoughtfully titled Roseanne's Nuts. The show will document the comedienne's life after leaving Hollyweird behind -- her job managing her macadamia and livestock farm in Hawaii (not a joke), as well as her relationship with her long-time "hippie freak" boyfriend and her son Jake.
After eight seasons, it's still going strong and for good reason: Chopped is a solid, summer fun cooking show. It's got the best elements of older cooking shows like Iron Chef America (mystery ingredients and a short time limit) combined with an always-fresh formula of new contestants and new judges every episode. Also, host Ted Allen adds knowledge and (we're pretty sure unintentional) humor to the show.
I'm doing my happy dance because this show is back. It's one of my favorites as it's a cop show with a supernatural bent and it has the dashing Captain Jack Harkness at the center of it all. Sure maybe he did some awful things at the end of last season and most fans of the show are still reeling from all of the big deaths and jaw-dropping moments from the end of the last episode. But let's have a moment of silence in remembrance and move on. The flaws in the characters and the stunning surprises are what makes this show interesting.
And... there goes my summer. The all-consuming show begins again, airing on CBS three times a week and streaming online 24/7. So yeah, that's my life. A world where strangers do nothing and I sit transfixed, I begin to sit around doing sit-ups while they work out like they are somehow my gym buddies and where I religiously tune in to see what Julie Chen is wearing. I'm not saying that I'm proud of this fact, just that no matter how I try, Big Brother keeps sucking me back in.
Everyone's favorite OCD house-flipper is back! If you don't watch, let's just say you're missing out on a whole lot of crazy. Jeff Lewis is our beloved house-flipper, meaning he guts, re-decorates and then sells homes. Over the last few seasons, he's switched focus to his new design company, Jeff Lewis Designs, and that's where we pick up with tonight's Season Five premiere.
Fireworks are a Fourth of July tradition, but in case your community is foregoing bottle rockets and Catherine wheels for budgetary and/or safety reasons, it's good to know that TV has you covered.
Best known for his self-titled Fox sitcom, which ran from 2000 to 2002, comedian Christopher Titus returns to the airwaves for his fourth stand-up special. Filmed before a live audience in his native California, most of the jokes in Neverlution involve his frustration with the current state of the union and how America can take the steps necessary to improve itself for the next generation. Titus premiered the set at the Montreal Comedy Festival last year where it was apparently met with a rapturous reception. But what do those socialist Canucks know about comedy anyway? (We keed.)
