Summer TV season is upon us and so is the first crack at the summer TV premiere date schedule. Given experience in past years some of these dates will change (some may have already!) and our readers will crowd source several missing items onto the list. With over 160 shows already, hopefully it's a good start.

One night specials, movie premieres and whatnot are deliberately not on the list. I didn't include Hulu or Netflix premieres either, other than Arrested Development since it began its life as an actual TV show.

The list is sorted by date and time and hopefully alphabetically for shows premiering on the same date and time. If you hate browsing and are looking for something specific, use your browsers "search on page" feature. For most browsers that's CTRL or CMD + F.  Please note, some shows are on the list twice, once for the first appearance and again for the show's official time period premiere.
