    New TV shows never used to start in the summer. It used to work the way the school yr works w/ new shows premiering in the fall, ending in May/June w/ reruns all summer. Well, I'm finally glad new shows are starting while we're finally off! What (new) shows do you plan to watch?

    The Gates - Looks a little strange, but I'll give it a whirl

    Pretty Little Liars

    Persons Unknown

    Huge

    Melissa & Joey

    Faves that I'm glad are returning:

    HawthoRNe
    Wipeout
    True Beauty
    Sec Life of the American Teenager
    Mk It or Break It
    Hell's Kitchen
    Monsters Inside Me
    Man vs. Food
    SYTYCD
    Community
    Bachelorette

    I will probably replace Biggest Loser with Jillian's show Losing It. Oh, and True Blood. Other than that, I rarely watch tv in the summer - I usually turn into a voracious reader instead

    Psych and the Bachelorette are the returning shows that I'll watch. I like to use the summer to watch the shows I missed during the regular season so this summer I'll watch last season's NCIS.

    It is bitter sweet to see American Idol go...I don't get to watch it tonight....I have to work, but I have not liked this yr at all....I have been a fan since the start anyway! I don't really get to watch tv much but I am looking forward to Cakeboss returning, The new Kate plus 8, and the little couple returning and I may actually watch the new show with Jillian Michael's. Loosing it! I don't really know of any shows I wanna watch...I may try and get into the new season of Americas got talent starting next tue!!

    I'm looking forward to America's Got Talent and Hell's Kitchen returning. Haven't decided if I'm going to watch Kate + 8 yet... I love the kids but she drives me bonkers. I'm glad Little Couple is returning, and Wipeout is always good for some laughs (guilty pleasure??)

    Mandagpap... I forgot the little couple... we do like that one. Luckily those are all on when it's time to wind down for the nite!!!

    American Idol has been pretty boring this year. I could really care less which one wins.

    Really! :) Well, 8 of the titles I listed are on some cable channel & the rest are w/i ch 2-13.

    Well, they made such a great pair in a recent TV movie they were in together called My Fake Fiance, that they're in this comedy together. Here's the synopsis:

    The new show finds Hart portraying Mel, the grown-up former wild child of a political family who is now a local politician herself. When her sister ends up in prison and brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, Mel must take responsibility for her teenaged niece Lennox and pre-adolescent nephew Ryder. Spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family’s “manny.”

    A new show called The Gates starts this coming week. Anyone going to watch?

    Also, the 2nd season return of HawthoRNe starts this week. This is a really great show! (The RN is purposely capitalized because the main character is a nurse). :)

    I'm currently watching the Disney Channel-I like my summer tv light... ;)

    That Mellisa and Joey show sounds good-I'm a sucker for cheese. And I loved both of them when I was young. What channel?

    I'm sorry... but after seeing Secret life of an American Teenager once (and I will never be able to get that hour back)... I am POSITIVE it is the worst show on TV.

    The writing, the acting? HORRID!!!

    And this is ABC Family? Really???

    THIS was the network that was going to be a Safe Haven for family viewing??? It was C**P!

    Glad my kids are grown and I don't have to monitor this trash.

    I'm watching True Blood, and Lie to Me. I love Lie to Me. I think it is the most exciting show on in the summer! Other than that, I stick to HGTV, DIY network and the Food Network. Our cable is lousy-wanted to watch Hot in Cleveland, but we don't get TV land!

    I'm not sure if the TV land website has the shows online. I've never checked it. I watch the shows on www.tvshack.net or Hulu and some other sites.

    I just looked up The Gates on the ABC website and I will be watching at least the first few episodes.

    I enjoy So you think you can dance so I'll be watching that this summer. I thought Beekman Boys (2 city guys buy a farm - modern day Green Acres) would be good but I didn't really enjoy the first 2 episodes.
    I did like Hot in cleveland though. I loved the idea that women who don't get a second look in LA were considered gorgeous by the regular people in Cleveland. Of course, Betty White was great!
