Life UneXpected

Life Unexpected
9/8c CW
In the series premiere of this heartwarming new drama about a family reconnecting, foster teen Lux (Britt Robertson) tracks down the birth parents she never knew in order to get their signatures for emancipation papers. First she meets irresponsible Baze (Kristoffer Polaha), who lives on top of a bar he runs, and then she meets perfectionist Cate (Shiri Appleby), a radio talk-show host. The encounters are supposed to be brief, but the judge reviewing Lux's emancipation case has other ideas.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: "Week 2"

On this week of The Bachelor, Jake takes some of the lovely ladies on a group date and ABC reveals a contestant's "inappropriate relationship" with someone behind the scenes.

Chris Harrison starts off the episode by explaining the rules to the ladies, you know for whomever on earth hasn't seen the show before. The ladies selected to go on the group date include Gia, Ashleigh, Rozlyn, Christina and others, who get to go to a rooftop photo shoot with Jake in Santa Monica. (I'm sorry, did we stumble into America's Next Top Model?) Everyone seems to be having fun, except for Christina, who is feeling a little self-conscious in front of the camera.  Understandable, although a little ironic considering she's feeling self-conscious about the camera while she's on camera. However, the moment turns sweet when Jake embraces Christina to help her feel comfortable in front of the camera and the two share a cute pose.

Premise: True love (or a TV facsimile thereof) gets the reality treatment in this long-running dating game, in which a successful bachelor romances a number of beauties. The list of possible paramours is reduced each week until he gives a final red rose to one of them. The series spun off 'The Bachelorette', a spate of rip-offs and very few lasting pairings.
