So You Think You Can Dance is the only one I'm waiting for. I'll give Common Law a shot as the commercials made me laugh. I don't watch any of the returning shows other than SYTYCD, and none of the new shows look interesting to me at all. It's gonna be a lloonngg summer til my shows come back. :lol:

I'm looking forward to this one, only because I love Sutton Foster. Knowing that it was developed by the creator of Gilmore Girls however, makes me a little bit ill.
