This weeks list of premiering summer TV shows includes the NBA Finals, Royal Pains, Tosh.0, Whale Wars and more. Read on for all of the details.
Tosh.0 Premieres on the Comedy Channel Thursday Night
NOTE: All Times are Listed for EST
MTV Movie Awards (9pm on MTV) - Andy Samberg hosts the MTV Movie awards.
Jesse James is a Dead Man (10pm on SpikeTV) - Series Premiere on Spike. What we have here is the husband of Sandra Bullock, Jesse James (also host of "Monster Garage") taking on new challenges and racing the "pseudo-clock countdown". This one is actually sort of interesting to me although I'm not sure I'll invest in another realityTV concept show.
I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! (8pm on NBC) - Series Premiere of another reality TV show. This one hosted by Damien Fahey and Myleene Klass puts celebrities (that could be a stretch I know) in challenges that test their survival skills.
The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (10pm on NBC- Available in HD) - Conan O'Brien takes over for Jay as the host of the Tonight Show. I'm guessing Conan will make a splash this first week.
ABC News Special: Earth 2100 (9pm on ABC - Available in HD) - Scientists predict that without action, population growth, climate change and resource depletion over the next 100 years could result in catastrophe
Is Your House Killing You? (9:30pm on Sundance) - a Health/Medical series on Sundance Channel
Man vs. Wild: Will Ferrell Special (10pm on Discovery- Available in HD) - I never expected to see Will Ferrell in an Adventure/Travel series but sure enough he is. Here we have Will Ferrell dropped into the Arctic Circle with Bear. The two must brave the elements for 48 hours.
Paris Hilton's My New BFF (10pm on MTV) - If this sort of reality TV show is for you I guess this one needs no description...
Man Land (11pm on HGTV- Available in HD) - Series Premiere of a male-focused home/room design show.
ABC Sports Special: Jimmy Kimmel Live (8pm on ABC- Available in HD)
ABC Sports Special: NBA Countdown (8:30pm on ABC- Available in HD)
ABC Sports Special: NBA Finals, Game 1 (9pm on ABC- Available in HD) -
Burn Notice (9pm on USA- Available in HD) - One of the more popular - and very watchable I might add - summer TV series returns to USA
The Listener (10pm on NBC- Available in HD) - A paramedic with paranormal powers. Think "The Pretender" meets "True Blood".
Royal Pains (10pm on USA- Available in HD) - a 75 minute premiere where a fired NYC doctor ends up in the Hamptons doing house calls to the uber-rich. I'm going to be recording these just out of curiousity - could be watchable like Burn Notice is.
Tosh.0 (10pm on Comedy) - Series Premiere
NBC Sports Special: Stanley Cup Finals (8pm on NBC- Available in HD)
Ghost Adventures (9pm on Travel- Available in HD) - a "travel" show searching for ghosts.
In the Motherhood (9:30pm on ABC- Available in HD) - Returns from a long break

Mr. Prince (10pm on Ovation) - Hal Prince, producer of "The Phantom of the Opera", "Cabaret," and "West Side Story" is profiled with a tribute to him as well.
