    The only one I even know about is Platinum Hit which I just saw a commercial for today. I am interested in this because I love song writing and think it will be good to see a show focus on more of that aspect. I also think Bravo does these types of shows very well.

    Oh and I have known who that guy is on Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition for a long while. I saw him on some special where the focus was on the guy but since he was his trainer he was shown a lot. I thought he was so darn cute. Good to see him get a show!

    Me too. The first season comes out on DVD a week before the season starts, so I'm going to buy it and rewatch in preparation.

    AGT: I saw the guy who won last year has a new CD out. I just like the variety entertainment factor of the show.
    Rizzolli and Isles on TBS (based on Tess Garritson's books)
    Rescue Me (final season)
    True Blood

    I'm sorry, it's TNT. I always forget. This is the 2nd season. It was pretty good last year except the actress playing Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) is blonde and way too perky to be Isles. Angie Harmon, OTOH, really captures Rizzoli. Loranne Bracco plays her mother. You can watch all of season 1 online at the TNT site.

    Right now not planning to watch any of the poll choices. Some I don't care about and some I never heard about until this poll. The "never heard of" group could grab me if I see or hear good things about them.

    Looking forward to the return of "True Blood" and "Big Brother"!!!

    Every year I say "I'm not getting the "BB" Live Feed". But I always do anyway.

    SYFY also has some good shows returning for the summer I believe. Eureka and Warehouse 13...plus others!!!

    STYTCD and occasionally AGT.

    Big Brother jumped the shark a few seasons ago so I doubt I'll watch it anymore.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    I always "try out" the summer season since some shows are picked up for more episodes later. Wasn't DWTS a "summer replacement"?
