As Seth mentioned, these days, fall television isn't much to get excited over--especially when it comes to new shows. From what rumblings are out there, pilot season is going to be yet another disaster. But between now and then, we still have summer and while most people think of it as a television wasteland, there are a few gems that should at least land on your DVR:

"So You Think You Can Dance," May 26th, Fox

Of all the dancing and singing competitions, "SYTYCD" is the best there is. Hosted by the stylish and sweet Cat Deeley, follow along with the best of the b-boys as they blow away expectations and check out the phenomenal ballroom dancers working through a Nappytabs routine. Then try to make sense of Lil "C's judging comments or Mary Murphy's screeching and make fun of Adam Shankman when he cries at every other routine. "SYTYCD" is my favorite guilty pleasure.

"Expedition Impossible," June 21st, ABC

The only new show on the list, "Expedition Impossible" is the latest Mark Burnett adventure competition that will hopefully bear resemblance to his previous "Eco-Challenge" series. Follow thirteen teams of three as they race around the world, stopping to solve problems along a ten leg journey. Burnett says it will bring "an epic Indiana Jones-style experience to the viewers."

"True Blood," June 26th, HBO

Vampires and faeries and witches, oh my! Season 4 of "True Blood" has been dubbed the Season of the Witch (loosely following Charlaine Harris' Dead to the World) and will feature Harry Potter's Fiona Shaw as Marnie. As long as we get to see more of Eric and Pam and Lafayette and Pretty Jesus and Jessica and Hoyt, who cares what they're doing...bloodsugarsexmagic me up.

"Torchwood: Miracle Day," July 8th, Starz

I know, I know. Like the first time you heard about peanut butter and bananas, your gut tells you it will be a disaster, but there is also the possibility that something good may come of it all. And who are you kidding, you know you're going to at least try it. Captain Hotty McHottyPants, Jack Harkness! (Maybe he'll see sweet Ianto in his dreams?)

"Breaking Bad," July 17th, AMC

I don't know how Walt and Jessie are going to climb out of that deep, deep pile of shit they are in, but I do know I'll be watching THE BEST SHOW ON TELEVISION. (Go ahead, try to argue.)


Honorable Mention:

"Curb Your Enthusiasm," July 10th, HBO

Larry David is the biggest and funniest asshole there is. I can't help myself, I have to watch.
