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


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
