A IS FOR AMC, which just announced that BREAKING BAD will finally return for its much-anticipated fourth season this July 17th at 10PM.
B IS FOR THE BOYS [AND GIRLS] OF ROOKIE BLUE, Canada’s biggest small screen success story from last summer returns for a second action-packed season this June 23rd on ABC (Global TV in Canada)
C IS FOR CABLE, once the home to movies you already saw in theaters four years ago has now officially been crowned the savior of summer. ABC Family, BBC America, FX, Lifetime, TNT, TV LAND and USA, we salute you.
D IS FOR DEPRESSED, not just as a result of the hiatus many of our favorite shows are on this summer, but also for our inability to subscribe to DirecTV which will unspool DAMAGES fourth season starting this July 13th at 9PM on their “Channel 101.”
F IS FOR FALLING SKIES, TNT’s enthralling and surprisingly addictive — at least based on the first six episode we’ve had the chance to screen — new science fiction offering from Steven Spielberg that chronicles the aftermath of a War of the Worlds-style alien invasion. Simply put, it’s what V should have been.
G IS FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS, which, we sure as heck hope will live up to their billing this summer. Seriously, have you see the CW’s schedule?

Hailing from the ABC Family series about the real life implications of sex and pregnancy for teenagers today, though portrayed through a warm and loving lens, THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER holds up a mirror for high school kids today. Co-stars Ken Baumann portrays Ben Boykewich, the gentle teen that found out one night of passion has far reaching implications; and Francia Raisa portrays Adrian Lee, a n outgoing young woman determined to get back at her ex-boyfriend by sleeping with his rival. But that one night changed their lives forever after it ended in an unexpected pregnancy. At the ABC Family/Disney press junket held at ABC Studios on May 14th, Ken and Francia shared their insight on what is next and how they feel about the show’s depiction of teen life today.
Do you think SECRET LIFE realistically portrays teenagers?
Francia: It’s pretty realistic. I have a sister who is still in high school and she says a lot of what is going on has been going on in her experience in high school. Everyone is talking about sex. Everyone is talking about who’s hooking up with who. And nowadays they’re more dealing with drugs. They’re dealing with alcohol. They’re dealing with peer pressure. Pregnancies happen. When I was in high school I knew so many girls who had abortions. Some left because they had babies. It’s pretty realistic. So, yeah, we deal with it in realistic ways.

Another inspiring series to watch for this summer is EXTREME MAKEOVER: WEIGHT LOSS EDITION, which focuses on the inspiring journey of eight people who undertook the challenge to regain their physical form and self-esteem over the course of a one-year journey with personal fitness trainer, Chris Powell.
While noting that a house may be made-over in one week, to makeover a human being, it takes a full year. As Chris good-humoredly said, “I need a full year — a full year to change these people. They’re looking for extreme transformation and, in order to do that, we need time.”
