For Your Summer-Viewing Pleasure...

I don’t know about you, but I live for TV. (Oh, and my husband and kids, obviously.) The month of May always sucks for TV diehards. Sure, season finales during sweeps are great, but once June 1 rolls around it’s rerun city. While I can watch the same episode of The Office hundreds of times (and I have), I like having a handful of new shows in my PVR.
