The Gong Show - June 21 - ABC - 8:00 p.m.
The Gong Show earned enough viewers to warrant a second season this summer! Performers, such as contortionists, singers, magicians, dancers, jugglers and dancing dogs, are just some of the dozens and dozens of acts that are set to impress our panel of three celebrity judges. If any of the judges deem an act to be less than worthy of a score, they can pick up a mallet and hit the giant gong that is hanging behind them and end the underwhelming performance. But if the judges are happy with the act, they will let it play out until the end and present their scores numerically from 0 through 10. It’s not uncommon for fights to break out amongst the judges when one of them wants to gong an act, while the others want to let them play on. At the end of each show, the winning performer or act with the highest judges’ scores will receive a fabulous The Gong Show trophy and a check. America's Got Talent, this is not.

The Last Defense - June 19 - ABC - 10:00 p.m.
This seven-episode docu-series explores and exposes flaws in the American justice system through emotional, in-depth examinations of the death row cases of Darlie Routier and Julius Jones. The series will seek to trace the path that led both Routier and Jones to their places on death row, while taking a deep look into their personal stories.




Salvation - June 25 - CBS - 9:00 p.m.
Season 2 of Salvation, a suspense thriller, begins on June 25 on CBS. Salvation centers on Liam Cole, an MIT grad student, and Darius Tanz, a tech superstar, who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows a staggering discovery – that an asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth. In season 2, the secret is out – the world learns the truth about the impending threat of an asteroid on a collision course with earth. The question is: will the truth bring out the best...or the worst in us? The answer, of course, is both.


The Proposal
Each one-hour episode of The Proposal, ABC’s new reality matchmaking show, features 10 eligible daters competing in four pageant-style rounds to win the heart of a mystery suitor whose identity is concealed from them. Within an hour, one will be asked for their hand in marriage. “This is not a game,” says Jesse Palmer, the show’s host during the beginning of tonight’s premiere episode. Palmer explains that the contestants for the show have been hand-picked by a panel of “blue ribbon matchmakers.” Uh-huh. The former NFL quarterback, contributor to Good Morning America and official “Bachelor” of 2004 (whose own proposal/engagement to Jessica Bowlin was short-lived and appears to still be single) makes for the perfect host of this mockery of true love.
