Now that you’ve voted on your favorite summer reality show, let’s talk about scripted TV. Yes, that does exist in the summer, but you’ll have to venture into cable to find it. There’s the Jeffrey Donovan-led Burn Notice on USA (returning June 4); Kyra Sedgwick in TNT’s The Closer (June 8); HBO’s vampire saga True Blood (June 14); Showtime’s venerable comic-drama Weeds (June 8) and, finally, AMC’s Mad Men, a.k.a. pretty much the best show on television. But AMC is making us wait until August this time around. Boo. Anyhow, that’s a not-too-shabby list. Which of these is your favorite in the summery months, PopWatchers? Hit up the poll to let us know, and feel free to explain yourself in the comments.
