2015 Summer TV Premiere Schedule: Dates For New And Returning Shows

Summer is a great time for family fun and outdoor activities, but the TV networks have started to put together plenty of programming meant to entice people to spend time inside, watching TV. And why not? You can only swim, hike, tan and play baseball for so long before you need to take an hour off and relax indoors with your favorite show. Fortunately, we have a handy schedule of premiere dates to make that process easier.

The schedule is a work in progress, and dates are subject to change as the weather heats up. In the meantime, if there's a new or returning show you don't see on here, feel free to leave a comment and we'll see if we can dig up the date for you! We’ve also listed shows that haven’t been given official return dates and stuff that is expected to premiere this summer, so if your favorite show doesn’t have a date, yet, take a look at the end of the list first! (Please note: listed times are in EST/PST.)

If you've been wondering what is coming up this fall, the networks have already released the new and returning programming that will be coming up. You can check it out, here.
