August 2011 Calendar of Premieres, Specials and Finales

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 1st 2011 9:30AM
'Doctor Who' / Andy Samberg,

We may be a month or so away from the big fall premieres in September, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to keep us busy on our TV screens until then. Sure we say goodbye to 'The Bachelorette,' but who doesn't love its sleazier cousin, 'Bachelor Pad'? And, of course, 'Jersey Shore' returns to show us how the kids fared in Italy. Surely they were embraced with open arms, right?

A lot of summer scripted series bid us farewell as well, including 'Falling Skies, 'Franklin & Bash,' 'Single Ladies,' 'White Collar,' 'Covert Affairs,' 'In Plain Sight,' 'Memphis Beat,' 'The Nine Lives of Chloe King,' 'HawthoRNe,' 'Flashpoint,' 'Leverage,' and 'Royal Pains.' It's not all goodbyes, though.

They're being replaced by imports 'Doctor Who,' 'Law & Order UK,' 'The Hour,' and 'Rake.' MTV has their Video Music Awards, the NFL kicks off its pre-season, and perhaps most importantly ... It's "Shark Week" the first week of August, with Andy Samberg on board as Chief Shark Officer, to make sure you kick things off right!
