It can be overwhelming trying to keep track of the depth and breadth that is summer TV, so KSiteTV is doing you a solid and compiling premiere dates. This is limited to scripted and unscripted originals on broadcast and cable, so no Netflix/Hulu/Amazon content will be found here, nor will you see any TV movies or one-off specials. It’s meant as something of a cheat sheet so that you can see what exactly is premiering when and whether there’s something coming out that you might not have heard about but might appeal to you.

Among the highlights of August TV are the returns of Ray Donovan, Greenleaf, and Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, as well as the series premieres of The Guest Book, The Sinner, and Mr. Mercedes.
