June 28, 2013

June 28--You can look for a handful of Minnesotans when you watch TV this summer:

-- Minnesota native Melissa Peterman is featured in two ABC Family shows. In the sitcom "Baby Daddy" (7:30 p.m. Wednesday), Peterman plays a mom who is helping raise her grandson. She is also hosting a new game show on the network called "Dancing Fools" (6 p.m. Friday), where the sillier folks look while busting a move, the better. You might remember Peterman from her turn as Hooker No. 2 in the movie "Fargo" or as Reba McEntire's sidekick on the TV show "Reba."

-- Model-turned-actress Kylie Bunbury from Prior Lake has a starring role on ABC Family's new Wednesday night drama "Twisted" (8 p.m. Tuesday). Bunbury has also been in the movies "Sitter" and "Prom."

-- And on CBS' "Big Brother" (7 p.m. Sunday, 8 p.m. Tuesday and 7 p.m. Wednesday) there are two Minnesotans competing on the reality show -- pizza delivery guy McCrae Olson, 23, from Oak Grove and bartender Kaitlin Barnaby, 23, Vadnais Heights.
