Summer TV 2012: New Shows To Watch

With show finales almost done, I'm sitting here with no new show to watch.

I should really be watching old episodes of, maybe, Top Chef, or the final season of One Tree Hill. Or finally get down to checking this British series, Misfits before the US version airs.

But I'm actually choosing to watch Friends on DVD because I think I need to reboot or something.

Summer TV is a couple of weeks away and I need to set the pace for that. Old favorites will be back, and there are some new summer shows I'd want to follow, too.

Listed below are these new programs, both on network TV and cable TV:

Common Law
May 11
Stars: Michael Ealy and Warren Kole

Men At Work

Stars: Danny Masterson, Michael Cassidy

Anger Management

Perception

Stars: Eric McCormack
Details here.

Major Crimes
August 13
Stars: Mary McDonnell
Details here.

Of these shows, The Newsroom is what I'm really so psyched to watch because I'm such an Aaron Sorkin fan and the teasers I've already seen have been nothing but outstanding.

I was already able to catch the pilot of Common Law and it's not worth a follow through. I'm not on board that show.

I love singing contests and Duets is definitely going to be on my Summer TV list.

And Charlie Sheen's Anger Management has been generating so much buzz even before they got to film this. I'm curious about it.

I'm checking out Dallas, because....it's Dallas! It's an institution.

Which ones do you plan on watching?

  1. From what I have seen, I guess I will be watching nothing but Netflix. What is wrong with television these days? Answer? No Creativity! Nothing Original. Also, The Networks are on drugs...when a good show comes out, they cancel it! I am, however, waiting for the return of my favs, such at Rookie Blues, Cover Affairs, Burn Notice...but as for anything new...? If "America has Talent", I'd like to see it in writing, not singing or dancing!

  2. The Newsroom looks amazing. I know Veep premiered in the spring, but holy crap...what a great show! Breaking Pointe looks interesting, and I'm also excited for Angry Boys (HBO)!
