Why Jenny McCarthy is the real play on 'Love in the Wild'

When Michelle gets to paradise — actually, it’s her groom’s small hometown, named Paradise — we begin to see more characteristic ABC Family elements. Her disapproving mother-in-law runs a dance studio for girls, aka a shot at redemption for Michelle. You might think the adult-oriented scenes would mix uneasily with the tween-oriented scenes, but Bunheads pulls it off. Sutton, an idiosyncratic Broadway star, is a real find as Michelle. Her comic talent holds this unusual production together.

I just figured out the target audience for Bunheads: me.             MasterChef (8pm Mon, Fox)

Cooking shows don’t get much more enjoyable than MasterChef. British host Gordon Ramsay is less nasty here than on Hell’s Kitchen — appropriately so, since the contestants are mere amateurs. Sure, he still mimes vomiting whenever he encounters a bad dish, but he also shows a more gentle and generous side.

As usual, many of the contestants try to impress him and the two other judges with their cockeyed confidence. “I’m about to flavor-blast my way to the top!” says a typical guy who’s taken self-reliance a step too far. But luckily, there are other, less grating personality types, including a blind woman with touching courage.

I’m ready for MasterChef to flavor-blast me through the rest of the summer.
