I'll admit that after a day of chasing, disciplining and entertaining two boys, there isn't much I want to do that requires any thought after they go to bed. Instead of hitting the bottle (you can't do that EVERY night), I usually tune into mindless television. June usually marks the beginning of re-run summer, but I have found two shows I highly recommend if you're looking to be mildly to highly entertained. Both are on Tuesday nights.
Hell's Kitchen This show amazes me. One, because I love competition cooking shows, but two because I'm fascinated that chef Gordon Ramsay somehow manages to yell, scream, curse at the hopeful competitors and, amazingly, they never argue back and always acknowledge his requests with a polite,"Yes, chef". What's his secret? I, on occasion, have been known to scream, yell and not curse (yet!)at my minis, yet I rarely get an immediate "Yes, Mom" from either of them. And they always argue my requests! I will stay tuned to take careful notes from the great chef.
Tori and Dean- Home Sweet Hollywood Last night was the premiere of the new season of this Hollywood couple's reality show. They've left their Inn (B&B) and headed back to Hollywood. I probably shouldn't condone people leaving spouses to shack up, divorce, remarry and start a family. However, these two really seem happy. Who am I to question their pasts? It appears they made bad decisions and now have a second chance at happiness and it's evident. They have normal problems yet seem to truly enjoy each other and the lives they're creating for their family. She's funny. Likable, too. And, again, this show does not require me to exert any extra brain power to watch. I even sympathize with them...2 kids in 15 months. I guess it's yet to be determined if a 4th season will materialize. If so, I won't be surprised if it resembles the above mentioned show "Hell's Kitchen".
What mindless TV are you watching these days?
