Summer TV Show Preview
The warm weather isn’t the only things students have to rely on to keep them going until the end of the school year; popular TV shows are making their comebacks in addition to many promising new shows that are sure to pull in viewers. Here are some that are worth watching:
“Pretty Little Liars”: 6/5/12
Girls, get ready. (And boys too, although some of you refuse to admit it.) Pretty Little Liars makes its season premiere in almost a week, and it is sure to be just as thrilling as the previous season. In the endless web of twists and complications, which there are even more of now thanks to last season, viewers are sure to be more frustrated, more antsy, and more excited than ever to figure out all the secrets. Although it seems that just as plots will unfold and mysteries will be uncovered they just get even more confusing, face it—you love to hate the secrecy of it all. Chances that viewers find out anything substantial that will prove helpful in uncovering the true story behind Allison DeLaurentis’ death? Little to none. But chances this ABC Family show will be more captivating than ever? Absolutely.
“Royal Pains”: 6/6/12
While this show may not be quite as popular as “The Office,” or the recent hit “New Girl,” it is a show that is 100% worth watching. Although I’m sure that as soon as I mention it is a medical show, I will lose the attention of half the people reading this, bear with me. The humorous show about two brothers working together in the Hamptons for their business, HankMed, is filled with extremely likeable and relatable characters. There are the are the brotherly fights, the family issues, and of course, the near death experience of a client in almost every episode. So tune into the USA Network on June 6, for the promising season premiere.
“Snooki and Jwoww”: 6/21/12
For those who love Jersey Shore but are over the constant Ron & Sam drama, this show seems to be designed for you. Perhaps the most surprising plot twist of this shows season occurred before the premiere even happened—Snookie got pregnant. Now that this Jersey ‘meatball’ has a bun in the oven—which was seen coming by no one—Jwoww and Snooki’s last hurrah is an even bigger deal, it being their final chance to live the Jersey life so clearly demonstrated on MTV’s Jersey Shore.
Although this show has already made its series premiere, it is sure to be one of the many singing shows that continues into the summer and serves as a good pastime. The Voice, American Idol, America’s got Talent—Duets is joining a long list of classic shows that illustrate the talent of never before heard singers. Yet it is sure to bring something new to the table, where the superstar judges actually get on stage to sing with the competitors. Whether you’re watching to see someone famous mess up, or hoping to find a song to add to your summer play list, Duets is a new and original show starting just in time for summer.
