    10 Things On TV That Are Here To Save Your Summer Screentime

    Satisfy your TV jones when the temp goes up and viewership goes down. NBC Thursdays are over. Mad Men and Game of Thrones are about to wrap up for the year. But don't give up hope just yet!

    1. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report

    They stay current all summer long, AND you can watch them for free online. Legally. Sing me to sleep, oh satirical news sirens.

    All the time Mon-Thurs — Comedy Central

    2. Comedy Bang! Bang!

    Features certifiable comedic geniuses Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts. Check out some of their stuff here and here, and then join me in wishing you got IFC.

    Premieres June 8 — IFC

    3. Jersey Shore Shark Attack

    If you need convincing, here's 15 undeniable reasons to watch it.

    June 9 — SyFy

    4. True Blood

    Increased Cuteness Alert: Tina Majorino (The little girl in Waterworld!) and Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: SVU) are joining the cast!

    Premieres June 10 — HBO

    5. Louie

    Every single episode includes a "Me IRL" moment.

    Premieres June 23 — FX

    6. The Newsroom

    Aaron Sorkin is just the best at fishbowl environments (see: The West Wing, The Social Network, Moneyball)- this show will be ridiculously well written. Also, Jeff Bridges and Olivia Munn.

    Premieres June 24 — HBO

    7. Weeds

    Alright, let's be honest- at this point we're watching just to see where else they go, because we HAVE TO. From comedy to soap opera status in 8 seasons.

    Premieres July 1 — Showtime

    8. Breaking Bad

    Serisously, how do you wrap this up!? Half of my face exploded from wondering *wink*

    Premieres July 15 — AMC

    9. The Olympics

    Epic. Watch re-runs and reviews and re-coverage until summer is over and probably long after.

    Starts July 27 — NBC and like, ALL of their affiliates

    10. Anger Management

    Maybe this belongs in guilty pleasure land. Who cares, we'll all watch it at least once.

    Premieres June 28 — FX
