TV Premieres, Finales & Specials This Week 8/21/2011

This week we find another pile of finales and at best a few reality premiers.  I have the listings through the end of August which to me marks the end of the summer TV season.

That means the GeekTonic 2011 Fall TV Season premieres guide series is coming this week.  I’ll highlight all the new shows and provide a detailed listing of all TV premieres for the Fall and early-winter TV season.  For now read on for the GeekTonic weekly TV update highlighting all the new premieres, finales and specials coming up this week.
