I just got all excited for my Sunday night dose of Revenge on ABC. Then I remembered the season finale was last week and I was sad (poor Nolan). Then I realized I had watched the last episode of Scandal on ABC too (go Olivia’s dad). And Vampire Diaries (CW) is over (and no Originals until the fall).
I am without all my wildly hot evil bitches and assholes on TV. If anyone like me was worried, all shows have been renewed.
BUT as I write this, I am feeling the Matcha latte kick in. And HOW did I forget about cable TV lineups for summer!
While there are like tons of “real scandals” in the news IRS, AP-DOJ, Syria WMD, they lack sexy. Like made up TV scandals. However I will say the spies getting kicked out of Russia with the 80s retro wigs, I think the wigs are real because the Russians wear the SAME wigs in the Americans on FX. Drat, another beloved TV show about evil on hiatus.
Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family and total oxymoron name for that network) will be returning with new red coats to sport and them the newly minted Ravenswood spin-off for us to love or hate. Still perfect for with “spite TV” fix.
The Lying Game (ABC Family), I believe, is returning as well. And really — if you watched Buffy and VMars, how can you NOT stay addicted to all the Botox and body shaving Charisma Carpenter treats herself to every other day. Seriously…
TRUE BLOOD (HB0) will be back and more twisted than ever with a truly evil Bill Compton.
As for the corporate evil, I hear House of Lies (SHOWTIME) will do a summer season. YES PLEASE.
Next post…Does Arrested Development fit into “spite TV”. See what the new season (Netflix) holds on May 26th.
