August: Television’s suckiest month. Despite a handful of essential series (Weeds and The Big C on Showtime, Rescue Me and Louie on FX, Mad Men on AMC, Burn Notice on USA, the Kids in the Hall’s Death Comes to Town (debuting Friday, Aug. 20 on IFC) and a couple of semi-guilty pleasures (The Bad Girls Club and Jersey Shore, of course), there just ain’t much happening right now. Which is why The Only TV Column That Matters™ is looking ahead to the new fall season with a helpful (and space-killing) list of premiere dates—tack this on your fridge:

* = New series; looks promising.
** = New series; looks annoying.
