One thought on “June TV Premieres

  • June 5, 2006 at 9:53 pm

    I actually enjoy the MTV Movie Awards so I’ll be checking it out. I also want to see Gnarls Barkley. Hex might take itself too seriously, but I’m a sucker for witches/supernatural stuff so I’ll check it out.

    I fell for Hell’s Kitchen last summer so I’ll watch it again this time around. I’m just amazed that anyone gets any cooking done since it takes me 3 hours to do something simple.

    I’m very excited for The 4400, Deadwood and The Closer to all return. I’ll probably check out Saved too to see if it is any good.

    Treasure Hunters sounds like an Amazing Race rip-off, but I love stuff that goes around the world and puzzles so I’ll be watching.

    Hustle is entertaining enough so I’ll still have TiVo record episodes and I watch them here and there.
