Summer Shows

I hear people say that they don't like summer because there is nothing to watch on television.  Now maybe I'm easy to please, but I completely disagree!  I find plenty of shows to watch in the summer.  Sure they aren't on your standard network television, but if you tune into cable, you'll find something that is sure to please.  Here are some of my summer go-to shows by category:

Trashy Television

What's not to love.  We have three Housewives going on Bravo bringing us into the OC, NYC and New Jersey, the Kardashian Hollywood hijinks, and the Eastwood clan and their new show set in dreamy Carmel, California. 

Coming to an End

Several of my Summer favorites are wrapping up this year.  The Closer started airing its last 6 episodes this week.  I'm going to miss Chief Brenda Johnson, and I'm all sorts of torn up about the upcoming discovery of who is the mole in Brenda's Major Crimes Division!

Also, Weeds on Showtime has just started it's final season.  I'm not very torn up about this.  I think it is time they wrap this up.  

New Shows

I've already expressed my love for the new Dallas.  I'm still loving the weekly dose of the Ewing clan and was happy to read that it has been picked up for a second season already.

Another new show, I tuned into this summer is Bunheads.  I'll be honest, the only thing that got me to tune in to this show is that it is the new show by the creator of my beloved Gilmore Girls.  While it is not GG, it is witty and I love that many of the GG characters are popping up in this show.

The Others

Some of the others I watch in the summer include Rizzoli and Isles on TNT and Royal Pains on USA.  I also watch Army Wives on Lifetime, even though I'm always less than enthused about it. 

My New Obsession

My new love is The Newsroom on HBO.  I was very much looking forward to this new show because of Aaron Sorkin.  My love for Aaron Sorkin runs deep.  Then The Newsroom got not so great reviews.  Many said that it was too speechified.  I thought the first episode was so so.  I thought the second episode was better.  By episode three I was in love.  

The best part about all of this is that summer school is over!  Now instead of depending on my DVR 4 nights a week, I get to actually watch television!

What about you?  Any shows you love in the summer that I'm missing?
