Summer T.V. Premieres – June 3, 2012
For a Sunday night, there is a lot going on in the world of T.V. premieres! There are four premieres and a special event going on tonight, which means there is lots of variety, and even some that the SurlyGurls will be watching (or PVRing while we’re at the theatre seeing ‘Snow White and The Huntsman’)
First up, at 9 PM on A&E is the premiere of their comedic cop drama ‘The Glades’. We can’t be the only ones out there that think this is just a new version of ‘CSI: Miami’ with a better looking cast. Who keeps green lighting all these cop shows, seriously?!
Lifetime is also competing for your views at 9 PM with the premiere of the fourth season of ‘Drop Dead Diva’. The hilarious journey of Deb/Jane as she learns just how different life can be for a plus-size girl continues tonight. We’re not saying this is the height of intellectual television, but it is a cute little comedy, but it is one of Whitney’s guilty pleasures.
And, if neither of those options tickle your fancy, Russell Brand is on hand to host the 21st Annual ‘MTV Movie Awards’ at 9 PM as well. Not exactly the most coveted of the movie awards – these are the people who gave best picture to ‘There’s Something About Mary’ after all – but it always proves to be a good time. Plus, did we mention Russell Brand is hosting?!
At 10 PM A&E is following one cop drama with another for the series premiere of ‘Longmire’. We move from Florida’s Everglades to the Big Sky country of Wyoming for this tale of redemption for the eponymous main character. We have a feeling this show will get lots of viewers, at least for the premiere, as all those ‘Battlestar Galactica’ fan boys are probably frothing at the bit to see ‘Starbuck” (Katee Sackhoff) back on the small screen.
Finally, at 11 PM, back over on MTV, the season two premiere of ‘Teen Wolf’ will follow the movie awards. We can’t believe this show made it through one season let alone getting picked up for a second. What can you really say about it, it’s a show about a teenage werewolf, on MTV.
