This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Today (5/26) is the beginning of the broadcast television summer season, so it’s time to post our premiere date schedule for broadcast and cable summer TV shows.

I have no illusions about this being a complete and perfect list, but I will update it with additions and corrections that folks note in the comments.

Updated 6/2, 11am Pacific

The first list is sorted by date, the second sorted by network/show name.
