We’re back with some television news for you to fall into.

Only a handful of years since his last retirement from The Tonight Show, it appears that the curtain is closing on Jay Leno once again in 2014. As expected, he will be passing the torch to Saturday Night Live alum and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon. This time around it seems much more likely that Leno will not steal the show back as he did when Conan O’Brien took over the hosting duties in 2009. Speaking of Conan, his own late night show over on TBS has been renewed through November of 2015.

With Fallon moving to The Tonight Show, rumors have begun about who might replace him on Late Night with the frontrunner seemingly being fellow SNLer Seth Meyers. Personally I think Meyers would be a great fit.

USA Network has announced their summer slate premiere dates! Lets start with Burn Notice (pictured left), the spy action series will start its seventh season on Thursday, June 6 at 9pm. It will be followed by the new series Graceland, which stars Daniel Sunjata and Aaron Tveit. Like Burn, the series is an action drama (and I’m sure it will have its share of lighthearted fare).  A week later on Wednesday June 12th, Royal Pains and Necessary Roughness’ new seasons begin. Pains at 9pm and Roughness at 10pm. Then you’ll have to wait almost another week for the return at Covert Affairs and Suits on Tuesday June 16th (also 9pm and 10pm).

The only standout USA Network show missing from the lot is White Collar, which will return with a new season in the fall (hey, they have to save something for their fall schedule).

Spoilers! Turn away if you have not watched the season finale of The Walking Dead. The third season of the zombie survival drama was really strong up until the last couple episodes. It went out without the bang everyone was expecting and that AMC hyped so loudly. It did have its fair share of surprises, including the fact that the season’s villain, the Governor (David Morrissey), survived. Everyone that I know (and myself) included counted on him being killed and we were taking bets on who would/should do it (Maggie and Michonne topped the list of would-be killers). AMC has announced that Morrissey will indeed be back next season as a regular. I honestly have no idea where they could take this character. I guess he can go out and build a new army to attack the prison- but how can they do this and keep things fresh? We shall see when The Walking Dead returns in October.

The summer television season is in full swing and with that comes a crop of new shows! Here are three new shows that you can check out online (via 141tv’s Free Video Guide).


From USA Network comes Covert Affairs, starring Coyote Ugly‘s Piper Perabo as CIA trainee Annie Walker who is called up to be a full agent more than a month before her training is finished. Does Walker have special skills that the CIA needs? Or is there something (or someone) in her past who they are after?

The series co-stars Christopher Gorham, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Kari Matchett, and Anne Dudek.

The SyFy channel’s newest series is based on Stephen King’s novella The Colorado Kid, and stars Emily Rose as Audrey Parker, an FBI agent with a lost past who arrives in Haven, Maine on a case involving people with supernatural abilities.  As the breakout of people with uncanny abilities spreads, Parker must keep it in check while also finding links to her own mysterious past…

The series co-stars Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour.

From ABC Family comes this new series which is a “funny, heartbreaking and provocative” look at the lives of teenagers and the staff at a weight-loss camp.  Nikki Blonsky, from Hairspray, stars as Willamina, a young woman whose sardonic and rebellious nature causes problems for some, but helps other teenagers at the camp express and feel good about themselves.
