This Summer, t.v looks like its going to be a lot of fun, who needs to go out, but if I do, which I most likely will, that’s what TiVo’s for, my most favorite invention in the whole wide world. What can I say, I loooooooovvvvvve American t.v.
So far, we had the premiere of Wipeout (ABC) and Meet the Browns (TBS); and the season finales (House of Payne’s was last night).
Wipeout is always a lot of fun to watch, no drama, just light and funny, which sets the atmosphere perfectly for summer. The perfect mate for Wipeout, which basically premiered hand-in-hand, last summer, “I Survived a Japanese Game Show,” will premiere July 8th, some drama, but still very funny. Other fun looking ABC shows are “Here comes the Newlyweds,” which have already premiered but I haven’t seen it yet, I’ll check it out, it looks cool. “Surviving Suburbia” is a funny sitcom, I don’t know why they canceled it so quickly, anyway they are showing the rest of the first and last season this summer, as well as the final episodes of season two/final seasons of “Pushing Daisies” and “Eli Stone,” great shows that never had a chance or were never given one. I wish there was a t.v station were great canceled shows could go for second chances.
Summer on ABC
NBC has some really interesting and unique shows, right up my ally scheduled this summer. Premiering tonight is “The Listener,” about a young paramedic who can hear other people’s thoughts (awesome gift to have, but probably a lot of responsibility too), premiering June 21st is Merlin (“an exciting fantasy series set in the mythic city of Camelot, but inspired by 21st Century storytelling.” nbc.com), “The Philanthropist” premieres June 24th about a “billionaire playboy-turned-vigilante philanthropist” (nbc.com) and another NBC summer show that caught my interest is “The Great American Road trip” premiering July 1st about “seven families of four from a variety of backgrounds have been selected to take the journey of a lifetime. Over eight episodes, the families travel classic Route 66 through cities large and small, all while competing in a medley of humorous games that will ultimately lead one family to victory.” (nbc.com).
Summer on NBC
This summer ABC Family looks awesome, lots of great stuff for the teenybopper and me demographic, starting with the premieres of Season Two of one of my favorites “The Secret Life of an American Teenager,” as well as, a show about the world of gymnastics, probably similar to the movie “Stick it,” called “Make it or Break it,” June 22nd, can’t wait. Then on July 7th, the premiere of the television series based on the movie with same title “10 Things I hate about you,” on July 21st, a sitcom featuring Alexa Vega (I love her) of Spy Kids fame “Ruby & the Rockits.” Check out sneak peeks on abcfamily.com.
I am also awaiting Leverage (TNT-July 15th), Monk, Psych and whatever else summer throws my way; t.v, cinema, theater or otherwise. I wish you great t.v viewing and outdoor fun (Tivo/DVR-what you miss when you’re out) this summer.
P.S- I might give Hawthorne (TNT- June 16th) a shot, I’m not really into doctor shows but I do love me some Jada, so we’ll see. Talk more t.v soon.
