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.

Enjoy!
