Finally, You're So Cupid premieres at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The movie follows fraternal twin sisters Emma (Danielle Chuchran) and Lily (Caitlin E.J. Meyer) who are as different as night and day. Inseparable since the day they were born, Emma and Lily have an insatiable desire to play matchmaker, even though they've never fallen in love themselves. As they enter their senior year in high school, Emma and Lily finally each find themselves falling for a guy; however, life gets complicated when they discover they're both in love with the same boy.
