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

Stars: Michael Ealy and Warren Kole

Major Crimes
August 13

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?
