This week, some entertaining TV shows hit big turning points, and one hilarious new show made its mark on the summer TV landscape.
On The Bachelorette, Desiree basically admitted that she’s in love with Brooks, which should make the final batch of episodes interesting as her decision seems made already, but we all know there’s at least one more dramatic turn coming up before the last rose is given out. So You Think You Can Dance said goodbye to one contestant due to injury and another due to an elimination featuring a strong (but not quite strong enough) group of female dancers. And everyone’s favorite dysfunctional family on The Real Housewives of New Jersey provided a great cliffhanger for this week in television, as a family retreat turned violent.
None of these TV moments could compare to my favorite from this week: the premiere of Hollywood Game Night on NBC. The premise is simple but fantastic: funny celebrities + alcohol + ridiculous games. The result was something that I will be glued to every Thursday night at 10 for the rest of the summer. Where else can you see Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry trying to guess the salty snack in a photograph or Martin Short trying to put photos of Johnny Depp in chronological order? This is the perfect summer entertainment—fun, easy to watch, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Watch this clip and tell me you don’t want to be a part of this kind of game night:
What was the best thing you saw on TV this week?
Hollywood Game Night was hilarious! I saw people talking about it on twitter when it was on, so I watched it the next day on Hulu. Agreed, it’s the perfect summer entertainment. And It was awesome to see Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry together on my screen again!
I’m so glad I’m not the only one who was so thoroughly entertained by this show! 😀
