Just sports at the moment. Nothing on the summer docket show wise has caught my eye yet.

I need the break to get caught up on DVDs and video games anyway.

When's the prison show start on Fox? That looks kind of interesting.

Rome on HBO - when?

Other than those, I'll probably give Empire a try, and Entourage as of now is the only show I'll make it a point to watch each week. I'll watch some of the others (Big Brother, American Dad) when I'm not busy.

Hit Me Baby, One More Time
Average Joe
Beauty and the Geek

Perhaps out of boredom, perhaps out of masochism, I think I'm going to try to watch every new summer network reality offering at least once. Or at least the 'reality competition' shows. Maybe I'll keep a running tab in this thread or something. There's quite a few:

Hell's Kitchen (5/30)
Beauty & the Geek (6/1)
Dancing with the Stars (6/1) (yeccch)
Hit Me Baby One More Time (6/2)
The Scholar (6/6)
Fire Me. . .Please (6/7)
The Cut (6/9)
I Want to be a Hilton (6/21) (double yech)
Average Joe: The Joes Strike Back (6/21)
Big Brother 6 (7/7)
Welcome to the Neighborhood (7/10)
Rock Star: INXS (7/11)
So You Think You Can Dance (7/20)
The Law Firm (7/28)
Tommy Lee Goes to College (8/16)

Anyway wanna take this challenge with me?

Monk
The 4400
The Dead Zone
Rescue Me
The Shield
Entourage

As well as catching up on shows I haven't got around to watching. I just started watching the recordings of Veronica Mars, and I liked that show so much that I watched nine episodes yesterday.

I'll give Entourage a try and these new series look promising:
Prison Break
The Scholar
Hell's Kitchen (even though it was pretty harsh this week)

Since my wife is a fan of the shows, Monk, Entourage, and 6FU for sure, and maybe a couple of others.

The Shield
Nip/Tuck

I'm not sure either count as "summer" this year, though.

Other than that, I'll be giving The Inside as much of a chance as I gave The Jury last year because I'm as enthusiastic about Minear as I was those former Homicide guys. I will probably give Over There a shot, too.

On DVD, I'm running through Newsradio seasons 1 and 2, Chappelle's Show season 2, and will probably buy Moonlighting seasons 1 and 2. I'm in the middle of Felicity season 4 and the British version of The Office via rental. I hope to hit Oz seasons I haven't seen, Homicide seasons I haven't seen, and whatever the wife wants to grab (which will probably be along the lines of Dawson's Creek or something).

Anything that's not baseball has some chance. Well, except for Big Brother.
