June 2010 Premieres, Specials and Finales

'True Blood' / 'Hot in Cleveland' / 'Futurama'
There's no reason to go into TV withdrawal now that so many of your favorites have had their season finales. We've still got 'Glee' to go yet. But more than that, June offers such a plethora of new series and season premieres, you'd think it was premiere week in September. HBO is back in a big way with new seasons of 'True Blood,' 'Hung' and 'Entourage.'

'Burn Notice,' 'In Plain Sight' and 'Royal Pains' kick off their summer runs on USA. Perhaps a little higher on the anticipation ladder is the long-awaited return of 'Futurama' on Comedy Central. Also returning to television is Betty White, This time she's teaming up with three comic vets on TV Land's first-ever scripted comedy, 'Hot in Cleveland.'

There are series finales ('Saving Grace,' 'The Tudors') and sports finals (NBA, NHL) as you'd expect this time of year. More surprising, perhaps, is the networks debuting several new scripted series for the summer season, to join their reality staples. NBC premieres 'Persons Unknown,' while ABC brings 'Scoundrels,' 'The Gates,' 'Rookie Blue' and 'Boston Med.'

Thank you so much for this list. Maybe you can have a mailing list to your readers/fans that just consists of this, because I just stumbled upon the article.

Actually, In Plain Sight has been airing its third season on Wednesday nights at 10/9 C this spring. Season finale is scheduled for 6/30. This season has been excellent ... new showrunner, new composer, shot in HD ... and Mary McCormack and Fred Weller remain spectacular in their roles as US Marshals Mary Shannon and Marshall Mann. Just waiting on word about season 4! Keep those fingers crossed!
