Summer used to mean no new TV shows. But clearly (and thankfully!) those days are over. While many shows we love like Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee are currently on hiatus, there are plenty of shows to tune into when you’re vegging out after a lo-oong day at your internship.
Check out what the collegiettes at Her Campus are recommending you check out this summer! And let us know your favorite shows by leaving a comment below!
My absolute favorite show is “Jane By Design” on ABC Family and I am so excited that it is finally back in time for summer! I am the most cliché person I know and this is the most cliché show on air. It shows the main character, Jane, living her dream. Currently, I feel like I'm living my dream and the show brings the biggest smile to my face! I get to see her live her dreams, and then I think out loud how I wish I could live mine, and then I realize that I am and become grounded after each episode. I'm not going to lie, I may have gotten ready to the show's theme song every morning before my internship last semester, but let's just keep that between Her Campus and me!

I am counting down the days until “True Blood”! My friends and I make an event out of it. We find someone who has HBO, everyone brings snacks, and we hunker down for the hour episode. I hope this vampire trend in TV and movies never ends because I love it!

I'm hooked on “Pretty Little Liars”! It's definitely my guilty pleasure TV show. To be honest, the acting is pretty bad, but the scandal, secrets, and murder mystery keep it exciting.

Summer is wedding season, so channels like TLC and WETV pump up their schedules with shows like “Say Yes to the Dress”, “My Fair Wedding”, and “Bridezillas.” I'm obsessed. Also, on a less girly note, my boyfriend and I are addicted to “Futurama.” I can't wait until the new season. It's such a well-written comedy.

This summer I'm really excited about watching "Bunheads" on ABC Family! I'm a massive Sutton Foster fan and I'm really looking forward to how she tackles this role on the small screen. Plus I love ballet! The pilot had a bombshell-cliffhanger ending and I can't wait to find out what's going to happen the rest of the season as well as watch the evolving relationships between the characters.

I'm finally joining the cult and watching “Twin Peaks.” David Lynch is a genius and all of my Film Theory friends are fairly horrified I've never seen an episode. Plus, it's on Netflix — woo!
