Summer Show List and Dates

We are not including everything, because some stuff looks bad, but here are some important shows and dates that we will/might/could look forward too.

  • So You Think You Can Dance - Tonight. This reality competition has been running for a long time, and it’s a favorite of Leeard’s
  • Rookie Blue - Tonight. Leeard loves this cop drama, and its third season is just now starting. 
  • Workaholics - May 29. This show is in its third season, and you can check out episodes on Instant Netflix. Three guy friends got this show based off of shorts they made about their partying, sad lives. It’s actually pretty funny, if for a very narrow crowd.
  • Melissa & Joey - May 30. The second season of this show is (inexplicably) happening this summer. Leeard watches it (don't judge) for strictly nostalgic reasons.
  • Breaking Pointe - May 31. This is a documentary series following a real-life ballet company. We love ballet, so this should be good. Maybe there will be some drama to go with it.
  • Drop Dead Diva - June 3. Leeard watches this Lifetime body-swap show, which is starting its third season this year.
  • The Glades - June 3. Yes, this is still on. And Leeard is still watching.
  • Longmire - June 3. A new show that’s a modern take on Westerns and crime thrillers. It could be right up Ern’s alley (Deadwood, Justified, Breaking Bad), or it could be lame.
  • Teen Wolf - June 3. Season two of this underrated MTV show begins. Leeard likes it and Ern is still considering catching up. Maybe.
  • Pretty Little Liars - June 5. Season three starts and we wouldn’t miss it for the world. The previews look fantastic, and we expect nothing less from this wonderful show.
  • Jane By Design - June 5. Ern to Leeard: Do you still watch this show? Leeard: Duh
  • Rizzoli and Isles - June 5. This show is starting its third season. Leeard watches it, because she's a sucker for police procedurals. (Ern sidenote: Then watch Southland, dammit.)
  • Franklin and Bash - June 5. Season two premiere. The first season was amusing, so we'll stick around for another.
  • Necessary Roughness - June 6. We don't know how USA does it, but it's basically Leeard's beacon of hope during the summer months. This isn't the best show on the channel, but it's watchable and has Max Medina in it.
  • Saving Hope - June 7. This new Canadian show reminds us of A Gifted Man. Hopefully it’s better and more entertaining.
  • True Blood - June 10. Season five needs to be better than seasons three and four is all we are saying. This show has languished in the quagmire of suckitude for too long. Still, it’s probably the best show on during the summer until Breaking Bad starts, so we’ll watch it.
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager - June 11 (a week after its season 4 finale). This show is in its FIFTH season, if you can believe it.  One of us will hate this show forever.
  • Bunheads - June 11. Amy Sherman Palladino reunites with Emily Gilmore and grabs Sutton Foster along the way to create this new show about a small-town ballet instructor. This. looks. Awesome.
  • Suits - June 14. This show was a nice surprise for Leeard and we’re looking forward to its second season.
  • Falling Skies - June 17. We remember watching a little of the first season and not thinking it was terrible, but it wasn’t something we just had to watch either. Whether we catch up and then tune into season two is going to depend greatly on how bored we are.
  • Baby Daddy - June 20. Unless this gets rave reviews or you guys overwhelmingly recommend it, we will stick with Raising Hope rather than check out this new copy.
  • Inside Men - June 20. This new show sounds cool. It’s from BBC America and follows three men planning a heist.
  • The Newsroom - June 24. Aaron Sorkin and a decent cast on HBO? Sign us up for this new show.
  • Wipeout - June 25. We’ll catch a little of season five, because this show will never stop being hilarious.
  • Anger Management - June 28. Like a train wreck, we won’t be able to look away from Charlie Sheen’s new show…for a few episodes anyway.
  • Awkward. - June 28. We’re glad this show got a second season and one of us still needs to catch up in time! Leeard is glad Ern is going to catch up, because this show (along with Teen Wolf) is a shockingly good summer show with a really great finale.
  • Louie - June 28. We’ve heard so many wonderful things about this show that we may need to catch up in time for season two of this comedy as well.
  • Brand X with Russell Brand - June 28. Maybe you, like just about everyone else, are sick of Russell Brand. Ern isn't yet, so she will check his talk show out from time-to-time.
  • Weeds - July 1. We can’t believe this show is in its eighth season. It’s time to see Nancy’s chickens come home to roost. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We think Esteban is still alive and that he shot Nancy.
  • Episodes - July 1. Ern feels like she’s the only person enjoying this show, but screw all you guys. Season two is going to rock, because Matt is STILL on it.
  • The Glee Project - June 2. We love this show more than the actual Glee. If you haven’t tuned in to the most interesting, least cruel reality show on TV, check it out. The kids last year were real, talented, polarizing, and entertaining. Ryan Murphy knows how not to crush their little spirits, and we are eager to see a new group get the opportunity to make Glee a little less lame (or be transformed into lameness by being on Glee. Cough. Damian. Cough.)
  • Web Therapy - July 2. Lisa Kudrow is a genius and a second season of her celebrity-ridden, funny project is just what the summer needs.
  • Dance Moms - June 5. Stop laughing. This returning reality show is funny and those kids can really dance. If only they would stop them from doing the oversexualized dance routines in two-pieces. They are like nine, seriously.
  • Perception - July 9. This sounds terrible. It’s an FBI procedural with Rachel Leigh Cook, also starring Eric McCormack as a schizophrenic professor whose delusions help him solve crimes. Since it’s a new show, we may at least watch the pilot.
  • White Collar - July 10. Is Matt Bomer still on the show? Yes? Good, then Leeard will tune in for the fourth season to lust over him. She would watch anything featuring that gorgeous man.
  • Covert Affairs - July 10. Season three begins. Leeard enjoys it, mainly because this show fills a little of the Alias-sized hole in her heart.
  • Damages - July 11. This will be the fifth and final season.
  • Big Brother - July 12. Leeard loves this show and Ern has never seen it. Maybe this year….
  • Political Animals - July 15. What intrigues us about this new show is its cast. We don’t think Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, Ellen Burstyn, Adrian Pasdar and James Wolk would all have signed on for a lemon.
  • Breaking Bad - July 15. The first half of season five reportedly begins right where season four left off. Ern is dying with anticipation. This show is one of the best ever created.
  • Degrassi: The Next Generation - July 16. This is one of Leeard's favorite shows. It's definitely worth watching if you're a fan of teen drama and angst.
  • Warehouse 13 - July 23. This Syfy show is starting its fourth season, and apparently it’s a hit. We’ve never seen it, but after watching what Syfy did with Being Human, we might check this out.
  • Hell on Wheels - August 12. Season two starts, and Bohannon still hasn’t found those Union soldiers he hates. Ern will need something to distract her from waiting for bar exam results, so while this series isn’t as good as we hoped it would be, it’s still worth a look.
  • Boss - August 17. Based on word of mouth, it’s time for us to give this show another chance. Season two, we will see you in a couple of months.
  • Copper - August 19. This is BBC America’s first original series. It’s set in the 1860s and is about an Irish-American cop in the Five Points neighborhood. We sense awesomeness potential, believe it or not.
We will save this in the cloud link under "-dates" if you need to refer back throughout the summer.

    1. You have a very varied taste in TV. As do we :-)

  2. I'm planning on watching Teen Wolf, Pretty Little Liars, Suits, Episodes, White Collar, Warehouse 13, and Futurama. I'll probably check out Perception, and maybe Longmire.
    So far season 2 of Episodes is pretty good. Glad to know that someone else enjoys it.
    I like Warehouse 13, I feel that it has been pretty good these past couple of seasons, it has a good group dynamic. From memory I thought the first season took a while for me to be drawn in, and would only rate it as average. I don't know what it's like watching season 1 back to back, I watched it week to week, so it could be better/worse in a short run.

    1. The only time we think week-to-week is better is when it's a comedy, because those tend to run together, and sometimes the tone can grate on the nerves if it's too much at one time. Examples include 30 Rock and Happy Endings, two shows we like a little at a time. So Warehouse 13 will likely be better all at once.

    2. I found it easier to watch Mad Men week to week. lol Not an easy show to marathon compared to other cable shows such as Breaking Bad, The Wire, etc.

  3. Bunheads and Longmire look pretty good. Copper might be good. The trailer didn't show much, though.

    Falling Skies got better towards the last 3-5 episodes. It's not as good as some of the returning shows...but it did a better job at fixing some of the problems then Terra Nova and Alcatraz. The trailer of the new season look pretty awesome.

    Web Theraphy, Workaholics, and Teen Wolf - Are these two awesome, pretty awesome, unbelievably awesome, good, pretty good, very good?

    The Glee Project: Hopefully, Ryan Murphy and team learned a lesson. You should hire people who are able to act not people who are different or themselves on the reality show.

    Louie = Class: Community, Parks & Recreation, Cougar Town. Check it out :D

    Political Animals - Greg Berlanti is the creator of Everwood, Eli Stone, Green Lantern and the new Arrow show coming up. Also wrote episodes of Dawson's Creek...Are any of these shows/movies good?

    1. Nice to hear that about Falling Skies. Ability to fix problems is a shockingly rare trait in shows. Web Therapy- Pretty awesome, Workaholics- pretty good, Teen Wolf- good. Nice scale, haha.

      Your point about The Glee Project is well taken. Ryan shouldn't be casting characters; he should be casting actors.

      Everwood and Dawson's Creek are good if you like that sort of soft teen show, Eli Stone is ambitious but forgettable, and Green Lantern (the movie) sucks.

    2. Green Lantern (the animated show) had a decent pilot, but one episode isn't enough for me to form a solid opinion

    3. We have a cousin who is really into the comics and says they are deep, layered, and amazing. We may check those out before we watch the animated show.

  4. Bunheads Premier
    Code: PLLFans

  5. That's probably true, at least for some runs of the comic, but since I haven't read them I can't really comment. If it was Batman however...

    It can often be hard to know where to jump into a series if you have no idea where to start, or what is the 'required' knowledge, so hopefully your cousin can give you a few good enty titles.

    After watching Young Justice I've been wanting to read the associated comics, and people have said the Blue Beetle (2006) series is one of the better series that no one read, but lack of time/money may mean that It'll be a while before I pick up either. I'm a bit biased in favour of DC, though that's mostly due to access than any other consideration, with the only Marvel series of note that I've read is Runaways, which I picked up because Joss Whedon worked on some of it.

    1. Young Justice - awesome, pretty awesome, unbelievably awesome, good, pretty good, very good?

      I want to catch up on some cartoons. Only one I watch is Legend of Korra. (No new episodes tomorrow :()

    2. Young Justice is pretty awesome, it's in the same league as Legend of Korra (IMO). Those two are the only cartoons that I'm currently watching (not including anime) so I don't have much else current to compare it to, but I'd say it's probably one of the best superhero animated shows out there, largely due to its characters and the interactions between them. As a hardcore Batman fan I have a minor gripe about the Robin in season 1, but the creators explain away stuff like that with the setting being on an alternate earth, giving them free reign to use everyone's favourite characters in a consistent manner without needing to worry about continuity.

  6. Yall should implement a chat room to the site. I'm bored. (That means I'm boring? I guess) haha Small chat widget on the side could work.

    1. I should also be studying but I don't feel like it. :P

    2. I should be finishing an assignment, but procrastination may be why I've checked this site a few times today.

      If a chat room is something you'd be interested in, one method I've used in the past is outlined here:
      I'm not much of a blogger, so there are likely better options out there, but this does the job at least.

    3. I could finally say "There are no good TV shows on." Boo! Summer shows need to come sooner :D

    4. I know what you mean, it feels really strange going from watching 33 shows regularly down to 7 within the space of about a month. I have a bit of a backlog with some of the new shows that aired this recent season, but once they're gone there's not much to replace it with, TV wise.

    5. In the past, chat boxes and chats have been less than desirable for us, because lots of people like to go on those and offer to show us their peens. We have enough of those offers, thanks. Since we don't know 99.9999999% of people on this site, it's very likely that there could be pervs. We'll think about it though, and thanks Khazidhea for the tool in case we end up deciding to implement a chat box. We looked in the blogger gadget store, and there really wasn't anything like it.

      What we really want is a widget that can help is do photo galleries like this:,,20312226_20597404,00.html Where you can just click arrows and add text to the bottom and it will scroll along. If anyone runs into anything like this, we would be so, so happy.

    6. I haven't used any before, but I had a quick look for options. Was this for a widget to be used in the sidebar? I found one widget that seems to do what you want image wise, but any descriptions you add will display on top of the image when you move your cursor over it, so there won't be much room for text. Other considerations, images above the specified size will be cropped, you can set the gallery to autoscroll, backward/forward arrows, or both, and the images can contain links if you wish. Installation instructions can be found at

    7. Yeah, we want a widget that we can use in an actual post to do that. We don't think it exists, but if you ever stumble across it.

  7. Have you heard of a show called Continuum, came out yesterday? From what I've seen in the pilot I'm cautiously optimistic. The plot is kinda like the reverse of Alcatraz, a group of terrorists in the future flee execution to the present day. The main character, a police officer inadvertently travels with them, and joins the local police force in order to try and stop them.

    1. Canadian show? Yeah. We're checking it out later. We're going out of town later this week, so we'll have plenty of catching up to do on TV.
