With the series premieres of TNT's Saving Grace and F/X's Damages, and SpikeTV's The Kill Point this week, we now have three more reasons why the major networks are bowing to the almighty dollar instead of seeking out quality scripted television to put on the air.
Given the choice between reality programming and scripted shows, I will choose a scripted drama almost every time. It's sad that the major networks prefer to cater to the lowest common denominator rather than use the summer season to try and find new shows that pack a punch, or in The Kill Point's case, air a miniseries that might actually be worth watching.
If you want something new this summer that won't rot your brain, try some of these shows out. You won't be disappointed.
