Did I see some new shows (maybe without dates yet) for AMC/FX in commercials and promos?

I am so excited by this I'm almost afraid to believe an actual intelligent SF/religion series could be in the works.

AMC - Halt and Catch Fire starts on 6/1. Dunno about Hell on Wheels 4 yet... three longer than previous seasons (13 instead of 10) and I don't know if they're going to continue the original-programming-on-Saturdays-it's-our-Westerns-night thing. But that'll start before Walking Dead returns in the fall... Breaking Bad prequel in November...

FX has Tyrant this summer, but I'm not sure when (guessing August...?). Think it had been June-slated at first, but The Strain (July) started being more specific, citing the month, where the first Tyrant spot (just last night, during Fargo) said 'Summer'.

Do you know about White Collar yet? Didn't see any USA shows on your list.

No date yet... (and I'm thinking we might not get White Collar 'til fall... and it looks to be a final run of six episodes...)

Haven't seen any USA summer premiere dates yet... (I'll probably continue with Graceland...)

Funny timing, since you just asked last night...

My Mom loves Suits. I haven't seen it.

I watched the first season of Covert Affairs. It was okay, but I didn't need to continue...

I liked Graceland more than I thought I would (and it's fun that I know the actor playing Oberyn on GoT from here...)

Might sample Satisfaction. Not interested in Rush.

I love Suits too. It's B soapy stuff, and the plots are like convoluted soapy versions of Good Wife plots, but the characters are fun and it does have a unique style and sense of its own 'place' as a big-time NYC law firm. Gina Torres is just awesome and the goofy love-to-hate-him sorta weirdo bad guy (but he's OUR bad guy) Louis is just hilarious in his nerdy uncoolness to the point it rises to supercool. :P And those are secondary characters. ha.

Dax you'd like it. Think of it as White Collar for Law Firms...but better than White Collar.

I don't like WC, Burn Notice, Graceland or Covert Affairs. The dialog seems forced and too cutesy, sometimes I can just "hear" the acting. I had hope for all of them but after a few epi's just dropped them.

I have caught up on Resurrection. I actually like it but hsb doesn't so it is one of those I half watch while cleaning etc.

USA Today really panned Black Box (which looked awful) as well as Mean Teacher.
