From Mad Men and The Wire to Seinfeld and Sex and the City to The Real World, Survivor and American Idol, TV’s gems often debut during the dog days of summer. But what is the best summer series ever? Kristen Baldwin and I discuss and debate that very topic on the latest installment of the InsideTV Podcast. We also share our picks for which show we are most looking forward to this summer. (Hint: Both our selections start with the letter B.)
Speaking of shows that start with the letter B, it’s time to talk some Bachelorette, and to do that we welcome back EW’s favorite grandma, Nanny! The grandmother of Entertainment Weekly’s Breia Brissey, Nanny shares her pick for favorite suitor, her thoughts on “luxury brand consultant” Kalon, and thoughts on which eliminated contestant was cut loose way too soon. You’ll also need to listen in to see whose rock hard abs inspired the following Nannyism: “With an upper body like that, you’ve got to bet that he’s got butt cheeks that are firm enough to crack walnuts.” (Sure! Why not?!?) It’s a conversation that is more entertaining than the tallest roller coaster in all of Dollywood! (If you want to skip right to Nanny and The Bachelorette chat, it begins at 14:00.)
