Summer TV Preview

Posted: June 23, 2011 by Keith Stone in summer, TV

It’s the first week of summer so it’s time for the 37th Annual Rainman Suite Summer TV Preview. Summer is the dumping ground for some of craziest and most unique shows on the air. And I love it. Here are some shows to be on the lookout for.

Mad Men: The best show on TV. Don Draper is coming off his spontaneous marriage proposal to his secretary and will look to……..wait, what’s that? AMC had a contract dispute with the show’s creator and pushed Mad Men to winter? Noooooooooooo!

Franklin and Bash: With the loss of Mad Men, if there’s a hole in your heart for a show with working professionals that drink and carouse with women, then look no further. Zack Morris and the skater guy from Clueless star as themselves. Wednesdays at 9, TNT

Entourage: After a resurgent season that saw Vince head to rehab, the star and his buddies are back for one last season. Will they ever move out? Andrew Dice Clay apparently plays a prominent role in Johnny Drama’s cartoon Johnny’s Bananas. Count me in. Sundays at 10:30 starting July 24, HBO

Suits: This show is about the law or something. I was an extra in the pilot episode so watch tonight as a star is born. Thursdays at 10, USA

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Larry David comes to New York…awkwardly, I’m sure. As long as he comes with Leon, I’m happy. Sundays at 10 starting July 10, HBO

Jersey Shore: Ronnie Loves Sammi takes its show on the road again, this time to Italy. Snooki gets into a car crash. JWoww’s boobs pop out. Looks like they’ve got themselves a Situation. Thursdays at 10, MTV

Bachelor Pad: Losers from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette compete for cash prizes and STD’s. Also, these two clowns are going to be on the show. Kevin Frazier is salivating. Mondays at 8, ABC

101 Ways To Leave A Game Show: Get a question wrong and get thrown off a cliff or beheaded or something like that. Tuesdays at 9, ABC

Ryan and Tatum: The O’Neals: The estranged father and daughter blame each other for why their life sucks. There will be a lot of crying. I loved Ryan O’Neal in Malibu’s Most Wanted. Sundays at 10, The Oprah Channel

Famous Foods: Ever want to eat at a restaurant being managed by Heidi Montag, Danielle Staub, and the Three 6 Mafia? Now you can. Sundays at 10 starting July 10, VH1

Same Name: Celebrities switch lives with normal folk who have the same name. Does this mean I get to star in Keystone Light commercials or can I change my name to George Clooney? Sundays at 9 starting July 24, CBS

Ice Loves Coco: Ice-T and the lovely Coco-T live just like a normal married couple! He cooks, she cleans…and has a fat ass. Sundays at 10:30, VH1

The Challenge: Rivals: The greatest reality show in TV history is back with a cool new concept. This is like Survivor with roided out dudes, sluts, and other generally unstable people, paired in teams with their greatest enemy. If the first episode was any indication, this is going to be even more explosive than Coco-T’s ass. It’s also an all-star season with the entire Johnny Bananas-Kenny-Evan alliance in the house plus studs/maniacs like Wes and CT. CT punched Adam in the face. Now they’re teammates competing for the grand prize of $500 and a pair of Dr. Dre headphones. MTV, you killed it with this show. Wednesdays at 10, MTV
