Speaking of new TV Shows...

You may not remember this, but not counting PBS, there used to be only three main networks -- ABC, NBC, and CBS.  Those networks had kind of a set schedule season for TV shows.  New series premiered in the fall (always with a splashy fall preview show) and then the summer was filled with re-runs and other stuff.  TV was pretty lame back in the day.

Then came MTV and other cable networks.  TV got better!

And then, FOX came on the free TV scene and things totally changed.  There were more choices.  And then, FOX and other new networks, cable and free, started to premiere their own series when they wanted. 

Now, many years later, we get to see new shows almost year-round...

Bravo always seems to be cooking up great new reality shows (and franchises of successful shows) and of course AMC has MadMen and other great shows coming and going. 

But here's what I'm really excited about -- MTV is going to have a werewolf show!

Teen Wolf premieres this Sunday, June 5th.  It looks like a pretty serious werewolf drama -- nothing like the Michael J. Fox comedy from the 1980s.

Tyler Posey is the star.... he's super cute, even with his moonlight eyes.

Are you guys going to watch it, too? 
If not, what other new shows are you going crazy for?



Sometimes by Moonlight: A Novella - Just Released!
Never Cry Werewolf - HarperTeen

It sounds good! I love The Vampire Diaries. :)
I'm really excited for fall because of Zooey Deschanel's "The New Girl." Don't know much about it but I adore Zooey.

I am planning to watch Teen Wolf also. Heather, I actually thought of you the first time I saw the ad for it. Sometimes I wish there weren't so many channels because there is just SOOOOOO much to choose from to distract me from the things I actually should be doing! ;)
Wendy, I adore Zooey also. I can't wait for her show.
