The Best Thing I Saw on TV This Week (7/14 – 7/21)

This was a very exciting week in the world of TV. The Bachelorette entered into its final stretch with the “hometown dates” episode, where it became even clearer that Brooks in the frontrunner. Suits returned for a new season with plenty of drama and the promise of much more to come. Hollywood Game Night was hilarious and thoroughly entertaining once again. And Late Night with Jimmy Fallon gave us the Jesse and the Rippers reunion we never knew we always wanted—plus a Jesse/Becky kiss!

My favorite moment of the week, though, came from ESPN’s annual ESPY Awards ceremony. Robin Roberts was given the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage, and no one has ever seemed more deserving. Her acceptance speech was articulate, gracious, and truly inspiring. My love for this strong, beautiful, positive woman grows more every day.

The Best Thing I Saw on TV This Week (6/30 – 7/7)

This week, the world of television gave us another dramatic episode of The Bachelorette (and the promise of more drama to come), an episode of So You Think You Can Dance that saw some couples (namely Aaron/Jasmine H. and Fik-Shun/Amy) start to really separate themselves from the pack, and plenty of great marathons for the holiday weekend (a great Castle marathon on TNT and a marathon of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies on ABC Family just to name a couple). The world of televised sports didn’t disappoint either, with Andy Murray finally taking home the Wimbledon title for his home country after so many years of waiting.

My favorite TV moment of the week also came from a sports network, but it didn’t have much to do with sports, actually. On the Fourth of July, ESPN played a feature on SportsCenter about members of the military returning home to their families, and it was such a beautiful segment. It made me truly stop and think about the sacrifices men, women, and families make every day to keep America safe—and it made me feel so grateful for these brave people who do their best to protect the freedom we as Americans celebrated this week.

If you haven’t seen this video yet, I highly recommend watching it. But make sure you have some tissues on hand—you’re going to need them.
