Meta Critic posted a nice list of the shows coming out the summer and I felt it would be a good thing to share. Both the list and my opinion.
-Tyler Perry's House Of Payne- Wed 6/6 - TBS - Wednesday, 9:00p - Comedy
This "comedian" isn't funny and doesn't deserve his own show. This should be cancelled before it airs but people are stupid so it might survive longer.
-Fast Cars & Superstars - Thu 6/7 - ABC - Thursday, 8:00p - Reality
Another "has been celebrities doing stuff" show. Just what the world needs.
-John From Cincinnati - Sun 6/10 - HBO - Sunday, 9:00p - Drama
Surfing and angst...don't waste your time unless your miss The OC
-Lil' Bush - Wed 6/13 - Comedy Central - Wednesday, 10:30p - Comedy
Has a great premise, but will probably fail to gain an audience like "That's My Bush"
-Meadowlands - Sun 6/17 - Showtime - Sunday, 10:00p - Drama
-Flight Of The Conchords - Sun 6/17 - HBO - Sunday, 10:30p - Comedy
-Age Of Love - Mon 6/18 - NBC - Monday, 10:00p - Reality
A man dating women too old and too young for him... it's nice to see they are sharing life lessons with the youth of America there.
-Heartland - Mon 6/18 - TNT - Monday, 10:00p - Drama
-Shaq's Big Fat Challenge - Tue 6/26 - ABC - Tuesday, 9:00p - Reality
It's something involving Shaq, don't watch. Enough said.
-Burn Notice - Thu 6/28 - USA - Thursday, 10:00p - Drama
I like Jeffrey Donovan, he's a good actor that hasn't found the right role. I hope this one makes it because it sounds like it will fit in with the other "detective" shows on USA.
-American Body Shop - Sun 7/8 - Comedy Central - Sunday, 10:30p - Comedy
A spoof on all those body shop shows... it could be funny. It could be... but I doubt it.
-Side Order Of Life - Sun 7/15 - Lifetime - Sunday, 8:00p - Drama
It's Lifetime, ignoring...
-State Of Mind - Sun 7/15 - Lifetime - Sunday, 9:00p - Drama
-The Bill Engvall Show - Tue 7/17 - TBS - Tuesday, 9:00p - Comedy
Another unfunny comedian with a tv show. Don't waste your life.
-Saving Grace - Wed 7/18 - TNT - Wednesday, 10:00p - Drama
-Mad Men - Thu 7/19 - AMC - Thursday, 10:00p - Drama
-Damages - Tue 7/24 - FX - Tuesday, 10:00p - Drama
Same thing as all the other shows on FX so watch only if you love this channel.
-Flash Gordon - Fri 8/10 - Sci-Fi - Friday - Sci-Fi
Hmm.... not sure. Let's watch the first episode and find out.
-Californication - Mon 8/13 - Showtime - Monday, 10:30p - Comedy
Anything named after a Red Hot Chili Pepper song can't be bad.. can it? I think you know the answer.
And mark your calendars for these returning favourites
-Footballers Wive$ - Wed 6/6 - BBC America - Wednesday, 8:00p
-American Inventor - Wed 6/6 - ABC - Wednesday, 9:00p
Watch the first episodes with the idiot "auditions", the best part of these type of shows.
-Ghost Hunters - Wed 6/6 - Sci-Fi - Wednesday, 9:00p
Watching people run around with cameras in the dark screaming at random times. Unless you really loved The Blair Witch Project this is not a show to watch. This is so sad... I miss Unsolved Mysteries.
-Standoff - Fri 6/8 - Fox - Fridays, 9:00p
-Big Love - Mon 6/11 - HBO - Monday, 9:00p
Avoid unless you want to lose a lot of brain cells.
-Last Comic Standing - Wed 6/13 - NBC - Wednesday, 9:00p
This show has gone down hill since the first season. I'll watch it to see if it's improved but it's doubtful.
-Rescue Me - Wed 6/13 - FX - Wednesday, 10:00p
Remember when Dennis Leary was entertaining?
-Top Chef - Wed 6/13 - Bravo - Wednesday, 10:00p
I never got into this show but I know some who swears by this show so give it a chance.
-The 4400 - Sun 6/17 - USA - Sunday, 9:00p
Don't watch unless you've been watching from the beginning or are willing to go out and by the dvd's of the seasons you've missed.
-Entourage - Sun 6/17 - HBO - Sunday, 10:00p
Another over hyped show on HBO, watch at your own risk.
-The Closer - Mon 6/18 - TNT - Monday, 9:00p
One of the many Law and Order type shows out there for those who enjoy them.
-Doctor Who - Fri 7/6 - Sci-Fi - Friday, 9:00p
-World Series Of Pop Culture - Mon 7/9 - VH1 - Various
VH1, the channel you watch when you have no life.
-Eureka - Tue 7/10 - Sci-Fi - Tuesday
-Monk - Fri 7/13 - USA - Friday, 9:00p
-Psych - Fri 7/13 - USA - Friday, 10:00p
-Who Wants To Be A Superhero? - Wed 7/25 - Sci-Fi - Wednesday, 9:00p
I loved this show last season. You need to watch this show. Trust me.
-My Boys - Mon 7/30 - TBS - Monday, 10:00p
-Weeds - Mon 8/13 - Showtime - Monday, 10:00p
-The Biggest Loser - Tue 8/21 - NBC - Tuesday, 8:00p
Watch to feel better about yourself unless you are actually as out of shape as these people. Then get inspired.
