Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Any idea when Americas got Talent starts?

  2. GraceM says:

    First summer in a long while that doesn’t have Rookie Blue. At least I still have The Amazing Race Canada.

    For anyone waiting for Endeavour season 3, I’ve seen it and it was really good!

  3. wrstlgirl says:

    My favorite time of year when you send these calendars out.

  4. Dan says:

    When does 12 Monkeys end?

  5. kristen torres says:

  12. mike says:

    any word on teenwolf season 6

  13. kmw says:

    At least we have it confirmed that Bones season ender is on July 21st. Their second to last episode is THREE weeks earlier from that. I know we have a long wait for it to return but really three weeks between those episodes. What kind of momentum even if they had any, would they get from this. Oh well thanks for the calendar.

  14. Larc says:

    Sounds like a lot of sub 1.0 ratings coming.

  15. Kevin K says:

    Can’t wait to see how POI is going to end come June 21st. The season finale of GoT on June 26th is going to be must see and I can’t wait for the new season of The Last Ship to begin and I really hope Dr. Rachel Scott will survive after getting shot in last season’s finale.

  16. Karen says:

    Any idea when Rectify will start its last season?

  17. Phroderic says:

    Any word on when Humans is returning? Sorry if I missed it on the calendar.

    • johnhelvete says:

      Season 2 production started April 21 of this year. Season 2 is scheduled to premiere late 2016 in the UK/sometime in 2017 in the US.

  18. Lala says:

    When is the season premiere of Mistresses?

  19. DuniaMartínez says:

    Anything on The Night Shift? Maybe is there… and i wasn’t able to find it. Thanks

  20. Lala says:

    Is finale season of Episodes this summer or early 2017.

  21. Jerry says:

    Thanks for the calendar!

  22. Prime time Game Shows! Hopefully without Steve Harvey.

  23. Dee says:

    Queen of the South is June 21st (not 23rd)

    • johnhelvete says:

      The calendar is correct, USA changed the date to June 23, the show is going to air on Thursdays instead of the previously announced Tuesdays.

  24. Richard says:

    When did “Vicious” premiere in order have a finale on June 19th?

    • Troy says:

      That’s what I was wondering! I checked PBS’ website and it looks like it is just one episode on June 19th and they’re calling it the Series Finale. I guess the show only ran for two seasons and then a one off finale episode…

  25. TV Gord says:

    I know how much work goes into this one “sheet” of “paper”, and I just want to say thank you for doing this! That’s why this is the best TV website there is!

  26. Alex Loria says:

    I thought Outlander was done on 7/2 (also the “7/9” is missing the ‘7’)

  29. N8frogg78 says:

    What about The Strain?

  30. K says:

    When is the final season of Switched at Birth going to air? Or did I miss something and the last season was the last?

  31. I will be reading a lot of books this summer! Wahoo!

  32. Dani says:

    So you think you can dance?

  33. I didn’t see the POWER premiere date on Showtime listed.

  34. What about Cold Justice on TNT?

  35. JMark (formerly JM) says:

    Thank you for mentioning Endeavour!! And might I add that Inspector Lewis, the final season, comes back in July, I believe.

  36. As always thank you for this time saving information.

  37. How about Impaster [TV Land] and You’re the Worst [FXX]? I thought they were supposed to return this summer. Also Playing House [USA].

  38. K says:

    You put “Fear the Beast” instead of “Feed the Beast.” Both titles work. Ha ha.
