The premise of Salvation revolves around trying to stop an asteroid heading to destroy Earth. NASA, a handsome billionaire, and a genius (also handsome) grad student are trying to come up with solutions to save humanity. It’s a fast paced sci-fi intelligent drama with some really good actors. If you loved Scorpion or any other fast paced sci-fi/investigative drama you’ll love it.

Daytime Divas (VH1)

Daytime Divas is a TV show based on a novel “Satan’s Sisters” by Star Jones. I’m not sure which name’s funnier but, it’s a really and entertaining well produced show full of comedy that’ll make you laugh out loud. It stars Vanessa Williams who brings her Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty style acting.


Marvel’s The Defenders (Netflix)


Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist make up The Defenders of Hell’s Kitchen. It’s been a much anticipated Netflix show and it’s out now.  Iron fist was a let down but I was definitely glad to see Charlie Cox as Daredevil back in action again. Feel free to binge watch it on one sitting. Everyone is.

 Game Of Thrones (HBO)

Ok I’m not really sure how to summarize such an awesome show in two lines so all I have to say is: if you aren’t already a fan of Game of Thrones, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! And if you already watch GOT then I thought seeing it on this list will make you smile.

Dynasty (CBS)


Dynasty is a remake. It’s about two wealth family feuding with lots of infighting within the families as well. It’s lots of drama, affluent display of wealth, scheming, betrayal, expensive toys and expensive shoes. It has it all. It’s starts in October so it’s technically not summer but you can watch the first look trailer below!

Marlon (NBC)
