ABC announced their summer lineup today and Celebrity Family Feud is on the schedule. Steve Harvey is bringing his popular game show over to the alphabet network for 6 episodes. Each episode 2 celebrities and their families will compete against each other for charity.
If that doesn’t get you excited? Celebrity Wife Swap will be back for a fourth season. As of now, we don’t know who the celebrities will be for either show, but you know they will be worth watching.
Besides those two shows, fan favorites Extreme Weight Loss, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise are also returning. Mistresses and Rookie Blue are back to heat up our TVs in two different ways. The Whispers will put us to sleep and BattleBots will wake us up!
Who says there’s nothing to watch on TV in the summer? Not ABC!

The other day The Middle’s Atticus Shaffer posted a photo of himself wearing a fake mustache and I knew I saw it somewhere else. That somewhere else was on Fresh Off the Boat‘s Hudson Yang‘s face during an episode of the very funny sitcom. Both young stars look good with it, but who do you think looks better with it. Who cares, let’s just say it is a tie because they are both just so cute?
For the first time in 11 seasons, there will be not one, but two Bachelorettes for the bachelors to chose from this upcoming season in May. According to ABC, they are “Britt, who captivated Chris Soules and the rest of Bachelor Nation with a memorable hug on that first night at the Bachelor mansion, and Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun-loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker who let down her guard only to have her heart crushed.”
The men will have to choose which Bachelorette they want to date for a few weeks; and once they decide, the handing out of the roses begins.
How will this all happen? We will just have to tune in on May 18th to find out.
Who do you think the bachelors will pick to be their suitor? And how do you think they decide?
UPDATE: Britt and Kaitlyn were both on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and I think both of them made a good case to be your next Bachelorette. I just think that Britt made a better one. What about you?
You know the expression, In An Instant your life can change? Well that is the premise for ABC’s new 2 hour specials. Tonight, tomorrow and next Saturday at 9p, the docuseries will tell the stories of people who survived situations that they shouldn’t have.
On tonight’s season premiere an Alaskan family of 4 is flying home in a small plane when a sudden weather system leaves their pilot blind during the white out. When their visibility is regained, they see a huge mountain in front of them. The pilot does all he can, but the plane crashes killing the pilot and his personal passenger. The family of four survives, but they are all badly injured. Not only are they injured, the kids were thrown from the plane and their dad with 2 broken legs and a broken back has to try to find them. To make matters worse, the mother is pregnant with their third child and she’s convinced she lost the baby.
How will they be found in this remote area with weather conditions that are not favorable for a search and rescue? How will they be able to get through the waiting period to be rescued as all of them are in severe pain with no food and not being appropriately dressed for the plunging temperatures? You will just have to tune in to find out as they tell story with reenactments.
Coming up tomorrow we hear from several of the survivors of the 2007 Minneapolis Bridge Collapse and next week a father and daughter tell their take of surviving a grizzly bear attack. If they are as good as the first one, then you will be captivated from the beginning until the end.
Fresh Off the Boat debuts on ABC tonight at 8:30p and 9:30p and you don’t want to miss this funny sitcom with a lot of heart!
Eddie and his parents, first generation Americans from China, are moving from Washington DC to Orlando, Fla in the 1990s. They are making the move because his dad has just opened up a Country themed restaurant in the Sunshine State. Eddie and his mom don’t want to make the move, but his two younger brothers are happy with whatever decision their parents make.
Eddie’s dad is trying to live the American Dream, and is a much more relaxed guy than his mom. His mom is tough and counts every dollar his restaurant makes. She also wants her sons to keep their Chinese traditions and that includes doing really well in school.
Eddie is Americanized and wants to be a normal kid. Which isn’t easy with him mom. Plus, he listens to hardcore rap and not that many kids in Orlando are as hip as him. That means he is having a hard time fitting in and making friends.
Just when everything seems like it is at the worst for this family after they move, they pull together and support each other.
Hudson Yang who plays Eddie is perfect in the role. You can’t help but fall in love with him and sympathize with his character as he goes through it all. Randall Park as his dad brings the right amount of innocence, business smarts and loving husband and father to the role. Constance Wu is likeable as his mom even when she is being her toughest and wait until you hear sing Karaoke.
Fresh Off the Boat is a great sitcom for you to watch with your family every Tuesday night at 8p for an hour. It’s the perfect mix of laughs and touching moments. We can all see ourselves in the Huangs and isn’t that what a family show is supposed to be like? So see for yourself how much they are like you tonight at 8:30p and 9:30p!
Tonight at 10p on Forever, the murder that Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) is assigned to will hit close to home for his son, Abe (Judd Hirsch) and himself.
A man was murdered by a blunt force trauma to his head and his apartment is full of some of the best copycat art that Henry has ever seen. As Henry is admiring his pieces, Jo (Alana de la Garza) and Detective Hanson (Donnie Keshawarz) notice a swastika where the fatal injury is located. It is then that Henry realizes the art is not copies, but the real thing. They were stolen by the Nazis during the war and this man was trying to return the items to their rightful owners.
As they investigate his murder, they learn more about the stolen art and the great effort this man went through to get it back to the surviving family members. So who would want him dead?
Meanwhile, we learn even more about Abe’s past. While getting checked over by a nurse for insurance reasons, we find out that he doesn’t know anything about his parents that were killed in Auschwitz. When I say anything, I mean he doesn’t even know their names or what they look like. Even though it has been 70 years, it is still a hard subject for him and there is nothing that Henry can do to help him find those answers.
Adam (Burn Gorman) is back and he might have something for Abraham. During their not so chance meeting, Adam leaves a present for Henry with him at the antiques store, so that his father will contact him. When Henry and Adam meet, Adam reveals something very traumatic that happened to him and might explain why he is the way is.

His wife is sick of it, but she will be shocked when she finds out what he has really been up to. He has been studying online to get his Private Investigator’s license.

You don’t want to miss this thrilling episode full of many twists and a surprise ending you will never see coming.
ABC announced today that they asked Cristela for the back 9 episodes. The sitcom has been doing OK on Friday nights, and actually is a good fit with Last Man Standing.
The show’s comedy felt a little forced when it first started, but it has really found its voice. I can’t wait to see what else they bring us by the end of the season.
Steve Harvey asked Anthony, “You never want to shake hands with someone right after they do what?” The 16 year old excitingly told the Family Feud host, “Masturbate!” His proud family gave him high fives, hugs and told him good answer as the audience stood up to show how thrilled they were with the answer.
So was his good answer on the board? Shockingly, no. What’s up or should I say down with that? I know I wouldn’t want to shake hands with someone who just finished shaking himself. Would you?
