Buzz In: What Summer TV Shows Have You Gotten Into?

End-of-Summer TV has recently gotten pretty bountiful, what with the return of Mad Men, Project Runway, and Top Chef, but earlier this Summer, the offerings were a bit more slim pickins — unless you gave a new show a chance, that is.

Summer is always a good time to get into a new show, since the break before Fall TV affords me some extra tube time. I rent DVDs for series I've been meaning to see and give summertime shows a chance as well, since there's space on my TiVo and since this Summer brought a slew of new series to check out.

Just like last year, I've been faithfully watching Army Wives, and this Summer I went from casual fan to bloodthirsty fanatic on True Blood. I even gave the TV remake of 10 Things I Hate About You a chance (a surprise charmer, that one), and, admittedly fell in deep like with Make It or Break It.


It's also been a great Summer for reality TV — I indulged in my usual faves So You Think You Can Dance and The Bachelorette and tried to lure in as many friends and coworkers as I could.

Have you gotten into any Summer TV shows?

I've watched True Blood since the very first episode, and with this season's finale only 2 weeks away...I'm really starting to sweat thinking about how I'm going to last without it for two whole seasons!

Since I'm not the only one I can freely admit to picking up 10 Things I Hate About You and Make It or Break It. In addition I added Drop Dead Diva and Dark Blue to last years list of True Blood (I have to agree fangorya I could watch Alexander Skarsgard read a dictionary), Leverage, and a few things on the History Channel. I also picked up a few fall shows by watching their reruns most notably Sons of Anarchy.

TRUE BLOOD! I will be so upset if we have to wait a whole year for True Blood to return! I have a lot of shows I am looking forward to this season but I have to admit that I have been able to get a lot more done around the house and even enjoy a book without there being a ton of new shows to watch!

Completely LOVE True Blood...will be so sad in a few weeks when the season is over. Also am into Royal Pains, glad to see Mark Feuerstein finally getting a show that is doing well.

LOVE LOVE LOVE true blood. I actually started watching the first season online once the second season had already started just because of all the raving I was hearing, and I didn't really like the first few episodes. But I stuck with it, and the second season has been SO great. And to all of the Eric / Alexander Skarsgard comments above, YES I love him too. I also watched SYTYCD, and I agree that as much as the judges went on about the level of technique, the performance just wasn't there from most contestants like it has been in past seasons. I'm also kind of annoyed that there's a new season so soon. I like it as a summer show, and I also think it takes away from the winner (Jeanine) -- she'll only have the "title" for a few months.

LOVE true blood (i'm an ever Bigger fan of the books) I also watched nurse jackie even thought the finale kind of annoyed me. Affairs just bother me I guess.

True Blood, I remember watching it last season but I kinda stopped but this year I have been catching up on all the episodes on the internet and I love this show!! cant wait to see the final two episodes. Another new favourite is 10 things I hate about you, the show is adorable and I really love it.

I loved True Blood last season and I was in love with it this season. I also love Eric Northman and even freaked when I saw him on a t-shirt.

Oh man, I love Make It or Break It so much. I've been watching 10 Things off and on, but my new summer indulgence is America's Best Dance Crew. I wish I'd given Hung a chance, but maybe I'll catch up OnDemand eventually.

SYTYCD, and True Blood. Must admit I was not as impressed with this Season of SYTYCD as previous seasons, but still watched. And True Blood is my new tv obsession - I too love me some Eric!

True Blood, So You Think You Can Dance, Drop Dead Diva, and (I admit) 10 Things I Hate About You. I wanted to get into Make It or Break It, but I never did...

I have not watched 1 new show this summer. Just finally watched Rachel Zoe this past week. It was actually awesome to not have the tv on and be outside or reading books.
