By now, summer is in full swing and is in fact almost over. That means the days are going to get cooler, the days are shorter and the fall premiere of your favorite television series is just around the corner. Excuse us for not being more happy about that. Sure we can’t wait for How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, and every single CSI to come back on but we’re rather enjoying the new summer shows like Graceland, Under the Dome, and Devious Maids. These are our picks for the best new shows of the summer.
06. Devious Maids: Lifetime
When Devious Maids premiered on June 23rd with less than stellar results due to controversy of the show showcasing Latinas in a negative light. As the summer went on, ratings for Devious Maids started to pick up reaching nearly 3 million viewers and counting. Starring Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Dania Ramirez (Heroes), Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes (Scrubs) about five maids who try to solve a murder while working for the rich and famous.
05. Graceland: USA
Graceland premiered on June 6th with high expectations, it was one of the “must watch” new shows of the summer. Based on true events, Graceland follows Undercover rookie FBI agent Mike Warren (played by Aaron Tveit) and his roommates who also happen to be uncover agents as he attempts to navigate through this new world. Graceland didn’t necessarily meet rating expectations, but the numbers have been solid and it has been getting good reviews from critics and fans alike. There’s no word yet if Graceland will be picked up for another season.
