What's on your summer viewing plate?

I think the summer staple of TV for me will be:

Monk
The 4400
The Dead Zone
Rescue Me
The Shield (the last 3 episodes)
Nip/Tuck (is it coming back?)

And a smattering of Fox offerings if they look decent.

The show I am most looking forward to at this point is:

Battlestar Galactica!

I had started a similar thread (for summer shows and premiere dates) but I think it fell off the main page.

When is Monk coming back?

I'll be watching:

Rescue Me
Six Feet Under
Dead Zone
Queer As Folk
Entourage
Big Brother
Hit MeBaby, One More Time
30 Days

as well as the rest of The Shield.

Hmmm...No Dog Eat Dog and no North Shore so I have no place to get my Brooke Burns fix for the Summer.

I guess it's just going to be Monk.

Rescue Me

Will give the following at least a try:

Hit Me Baby, One More Time
Rock Star: INXS
Hell's Kitchen
Kept
The Inside

(Don't have pay cable, so will eventually catch up with many HBO, Showtime, etc. shows on DVD.)

Sorry about the dup thread (please merge if that's the way to go).

But it's a good thing I did, I am interested in the following as well:

Six Feet Under - hmm...inertial viewing for me, hope it piques my interest again.

Big Brother - will check it out, and hope the guests are interesting, or hot.

Hit Me, Baby, One More Time - check it out for a bit

30 Days - must record this show

Rock Star: INXS - Hmmm...could be good, could be bad....

Hell's Kitchen - probably too one-note-ish

Kept - no idea what this is about, yet.

The Inside - must check out any Tim Minear show.

Battlestar Galactica - oops, totally forgot, still have half a season recorded.

Entourage - hey now, let's hope it doesn't suffer the sophomore slump.

I'll watch Monk and Entourage definitely, and just see what else there is as I go along.

TV is dead to me for the summer. I only get the basic channels (13 channels), so nothing on network tv sounds remotely interesting to me.

TV on dvd for me for the next few months. Time to get caught up.

Scrubs
Seinfeld
Cheers
Quantum Leap
Farscape
Lone Gunmen
Millenium

and I am currently re-watching Lost with my wife.

Looking forward to:
Rescue Me (F/X) June 21
Entourage (HBO June 5th
Hit Me Baby One more Time (NBC) June 2
Over There (F/X) July
The Law Firm (7/28)
Beauty & the Geek (6/1)

Will check out, but not encouraged:
30 Days (F/X) June 15
The Inside (6/8)


I'm willing to give Spurlock a 2nd chance. I thought Super Size Me was a load of crap, but the premise of 30 Days does sound interesting, and it is F/X, they have earned some loyalty.

I am disappointed they changed the original premise of The Inside - an undercover LEO in a high school, which was based on a true story. Instead, they opted for to go another way - sounds like Profiler. Meh.

Six Feet Under !
Monk
Family Guy

*Nip/Tuck was pushed to September (as already stated), because Ryan Murphy was directing/working on Running With Scissors (my second most anticipated film of 2006) at the same time that Nip/Tuck was supposed to go into production - so filming for NT was pushed to this summer.

See I thought my TV viewing would decrease during the summer since I don't have the baseball package this year but sadly no:

The 4400
Six Feet Under
The Dead Zone
Battlestar Galactica
Stargate: Atlantis
The Closer
Stargate: SG1 (maybe - I haven't watched the show before so we'll see how difficult it is to jump in).
