TV Tonight: White Collar & Covert Affairs

Posted By on June 7, 2011, 12:52 PM

The True TV big-ass guide to Summer TV arrives this week! You won’t have to leave the house for three months! You’re welcome. ---

What’s new tonight:
White Collar, Covert Affairs (USA) Season Premieres: As USA “Characters Welcome” dramas go, both White Collar and Covert Affairs are fairly complex and layered—we’re not talking Mad Men here; more like a good stack of nachos. White Collar is about a master con man (Matt Bomer) who works as an FBI consultant in order to stay out of prison; Covert Affairs follows a CIA trainee (Piper Perabo) who’s suddenly called up to work in the field; both series have conspiratorial subplot threads that are consistently more interesting than their quickly resolved Cases of the Week. Together, it’s June’s best two hours on cable (so far). Fun factoid: All 13 episodes of Covert Affairs’ first season were named after Led Zeppelin songs; Season 2, R.E.M. tunes.

Also new tonight:
NBA Finals (ABC); America’s Got Talent, The Voice (NBC); MasterChef (Fox); Tosh.0, Sports Show With Norm Macdonald (Comedy Central); 19 Kids & Counting, The Little Couple (TLC); 16 & Pregnant (MTV); Hook Line & Dinner (Cooking Channel); The Deadliest Catch (Discovery)

Preview: White Collar and Covert Affairs, kickin’ ass and lookin’ pretty:
