New Summer TV: August 2015


There were a few new shows that debuted at the beginning of August, but they were mostly shows being burned off and will not be back so might as well not pay attention to them. Here, there is the companion show (don’t call it a spin-off) for The Walking Dead, a 1960s cop show and Bill Hader and Fred Armisen doing their own takes on documentaries.
