Young & Hungry is back with a whole new season on ABC Family tonight at 8p and it takes place the morning after. Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) is discovered in bed with a blonde woman by Yolanda (Kym Whitley) and Elliott (Rex Lee), but is it his cook Gabi (Emily Osment)? Did Gabi spend the night with Josh, the man she secretly loves, or her boyfriend Cooper (Jesse McCartney) who decided to surprise her? You will just have to tune in for another sweet and funny episode to find out.
Chasing Life is airing its season finale at 9p on ABC Family tonight and you don’t want to miss this gut-wrenching episode.
April (Italia Ricci) learns that her cancer is back. Before she can even comprehend what the doctor (Merrin Dungey) just told her, she finds out that she has to begin chemo is less than 24 hours. If she doesn’t, she only has 2-6 weeks to live.
That means she has just one day to get everything done. Live her last moments outside of the hospital, maybe for a month or maybe forever.
If that is all she had to deal with it would be one thing, but there is so much more going on. Her mom (Mary Page Keller) decided to fly out of state to see Uncle George (Steven Weber) and she doesn’t know if she is going to make it back in time. Any woman can tell you, she needs her mom whenever she is sick, and April is really really sick.
There’s more, the newspaper where she works at is having major layoffs and she might be losing her job. So along with maybe losing her life; if she survives, she won’t have a job when she gets out.
There’s even more, April got into a fight with Natalie (Jessica Meraz) and she doesn’t know if she will still give her bone marrow, If April doesn’t get it, her chances of survival are not good to say the least. April decides to have a chat with her half-sister, and their talk will have you balling.
The whole episode will have you crying hysterically. I saw the episode two weeks ago, and I am crying as I write this review. If I was writing this on paper, I would be using it as a tissue. Seriously, I can’t even rewatch the episode because it is that tear inducing.
But the episode is all gloom and doom, there is a very sweet scene between Leo (Scott Michael Foster ) and April that you don’t want to miss.
It isn’t only the writing that makes Chasing Life so believable, it is also the excellent acting that everyone in the cast partakes in. They bring so much heart to the writers’ words that it is hard not to get emotionally invested. Why else would I still be crying two weeks after watching an episode? What other show has that power?
Seriously, if those snobs over at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences don’t nominate this show and some of the cast (especially Ricci) for an Emmy then there is something seriously wrong with the voting procedures. Watch tonight’s episode with a lot of tissues and don’t tell me you aren’t completely gutted after the closing credits role.
I know who wants to watch a show that makes you cry, I certainly don’t. But Chasing Life is so much more than that. It is heart, family, love and all of that coming together to help someone during the worst time in their life. It is a show worth watching even if it a brings a tear or thousands of them to your eyes.
Chasing Life will be back later this year with its second season.
Italia Ricci plays April Carver, a 20-something going through cancer, on on ABC Family’s Chasing Life. Part of the role calls for her to wear a bald cap, but at the end of the day the extraordinary actress has to take it off. Looks like from these photos, she can’t wait for that happen. Does anyone blame her?
When it comes to the Chasing Life if you are not watching it, then you are missing out on a very special drama. The show tackles cancer, remission and being a patient or a survivor like no other show has ever done. It shows you that can live life as you do everyday, but then one day it can all change with a phone call. Unlike most other shows that have tackled cancer, the drama shows you all aspects of life with it, going through it and what happens when you beat it. Then if you do beat it, what happens if you think it is back. That is where the show stands as of now, and tonight at 9p April will find out if her worse fears are confirmed that her cancer is back or like some people in remission the anxiety is getting the best of her. All of this leads into next week’s season finale.
So if you have never seen the show, you can watch a few of the later episodes on the ABC Family app or OnDemand. I also highly suggest that when it becomes available on home video that you buy it. It can help you if, Gd forbid, you have someone in your life who is going through cancer. I know it helped me to get over a friend, who I lost to the same type of cancer, just a few months before the show debuted.
Italia Ricci and The Duff’s Robbie Amell are getting married, and like most women she has to pick out the dreamy dress for their wedding. Yesterday, the star of Chasing Life went shopping for that perfect white gown, and her face says it all. Even if you are part of the most inspirational show to ever air on ABC Family, that doesn’t mean you won’t stress about the day you’ve been waiting your whole life to happen.
Just when I thought I couldn’t love the incredible actress any more, she shares a real life moment that makes me adore her even more.
When it comes to Chasing Life, I saw the season finale that airs on March 23rd and I am in complete of awe of the excellence that the show portrays in just an hour.
Just when it looked like Melissa & Joey was going to have a great year, turns out they are not. In early January, the sitcom won the People’s Choice Award for best comedy on cable and today ABC Family cancelled it. According to Deadline Hollywood, now that Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence’s character are married and the kids are all grown up, the network felt it was a good time to end the show. Personally, I thought the show should’ve ended after the second season, but that’s me. Are you going to miss it?
Now that this show is on its last legs, I really hope that ABC Family pairs Young & Hungry and Baby Daddy together. They are the two best comedies that they have ever offered. Both are really strong shows that make you laugh every week.
Baby Daddy is back on ABC Family tonight at 8:30p and Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) is wondering if there is something going on between his brother and his girlfriend.
Ben is so convinced that there is something up between Riley (Chelsea Kane) and Danny (Derek Theler), that he will do everything in his power to find out. But his curiosity might kill his relationship with the first woman he has ever loved. Will he go too far? Does Riley have feelings for Danny? Will Danny get on that plane and go to France? And what trouble will Bonnie (Melissa Peterman) get into now? All I will tell you is a lot for the last question, but what else is new?
Then at 10p, switch over to FXX for the return of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The gang attempt to break Wade Boggs record of drinking over 60 beers on a cross country flight and then hit a home run at Dodgers stadium the next day. Just try to picture Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), Charlie (Charlie Day) and Frank (Danny DeVito) on a plane, drinking beer after beer after beer as Mac (Rob McElhenney) is the referees. If you are a fan of the show, then you think you know how it goes and your wrong. It is even worse than you can imagine because when two of them get eliminated, they try to join the Mile High Club. That is why we love them. No matter how many seasons this show goes on for, it is still as bad as ever. Which means it still brilliant beyond words can describe.
Christmas is coming a little earlier this year, thanks to ABC Family airing a special holiday episode of Baby Daddy tonight at 8:30p.
Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) is having the worst Christmas ever, so he wishes the holiday never existed. Just like It’s a Wonderful Life, his wish is granted. At first he thinks its great, until he finds out that his daughter Emma never happened. You see, he met her mother at a Christmas Eve party. Without Christmas, there was no party, thus no Emma.
Now all he wants is to have his beautiful daughter back and teach all of his loved ones about Christmas. Which will be hard because they all don’t know who Chris Moss is.
Did I mention that his mom Bonnie (Melissa Peterman), his brother Danny (Derek Theler), his roommate Tucker (Tahj Mowry) and his girlfriend Riley (Chelsea Kane)are also a lot different than the way we normally know them. Their lives are in all in shambles; and to see how bad it is for them, you will just have to tune in. That and to see if he can get everyone’s old lives back. And most importantly to watch the best and funniest Christmas episode of the year.
Chasing Life is back on ABC Family tonight at 9p for a special Christmas episode. The episode picks up where the midseason finale left off, and we find out if Leo (Scott Michael Foster) got the surgery to save his life. We also get to see how April (Italia Ricci) is doing now that she is getting the Chemotherapy. The treatment is causing her to lose her hair and she decides to shave it all off before it falls out on his own.
Which is a good thing because now that her father’s parents (Marion Ross and Ed Asner) have come to visit, she and the rest of the family are ready to pull their hair out.
Will they be able to survive her grandparents visit? Will April survive her chemotherapy? Will Leo survive his surgery? You just have to tune in for another incredible episode of Chasing Life to find out.
Then at 10p on ABC the Forever, the fall finale picks up where last week’s episode left off. Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) has gotten into the cab driving by his stalker, so will he finally find out who he is? Not at first because the mystery man has other plans for him. One of those plans is framing the Medical Examiner for murder. Will his stalker succeed? Will Henry die tonight?
You don’t want to miss this thrilling episode full of many twists and a surprise ending you will never see coming.
We’ve seen Joey Lawrence with a beautiful mop top and we’ve seen him with no hair at all. Now we are seeing him with a hairstyle that makes me want him to go back to being bald. What in the Sun-In hell is going on up there? Who told him that looked good? Why didn’t someone on the set of Melissa & Joey tell him how bad that looks and insist that he dyes it back to brown or shave it off.
Seriously, that hair color is scarier than anything that can happen on the special episode of the ABC Family sitcom that airs tomorrow at 8p? Don’t you agree?
Ashley Tisdale is so excited that her show Young & Hungry was picked up for a second season that she is kissing Emily Osment’s butt. Although, you wouldn’t know exactly how happy she is by looking at her in this photo because she is covered in blue from her head to Emily’s toe. Doesn’t she know that blue hair is so last year? Pink is the color this season.
And talking about pink, I am tickled that color that Young & Hungry is serving up more episodes. Smart move on ABC Family’s part. Now all they have to do is renew Chasing Life too and I will be all the colors of the rainbow! Whatever that means.
