    Please do not use this thread for any discussion of the shows themselves.

    This thread is only for posting of starting dates of shows (plus their networks) for the next season.

    Please post updates to the thread as my PM box is full. I will then update the list.

    Any general messages to the group will always be here at the top so you need not scroll to the bottom to read them. If I list split dates it may be because of a day change during the season or a 'sneak preview' and I'd rather you have the earliest date so you don't miss any.

    7/17: at user request added "NEW" notification and shows not so marked are 'returning.' Please post corrections to the thread.

    In Plain Sight has been moved up from June 8th to June 1st! Looks like it is going to be a good one too! The commercials look pretty decent and USA generally has pretty good original programming!

    Tonight June 19 on the Soap Network with a premiere re-broadcast on ABC tomorrow night:

    MVP: He Shoots, She Scores

    I have no idea what the heck this show is and never heard of it until I saw an ad on a Netflix envelope earlier this week with some serious male eye candy.

    I've spent about 30 minutes trying to figure out if "Flashpoint" is in HD. I know you work hard to put your list together and if this is too much trouble I understand, but it sure would be nice to know if the show is available in HD.

    I can understand this may be very difficult for cable and satellite shows, but maybe at least for the regular network shows?

    And I still don't know if Flashpoint is in HD. I'd like to set up a wishlist.

    I would have no clue how to definitely tell if a show is HD or not and never thought to look that up. My main goal here is to ensure people know when shows start up again so we don't miss them and I've found the futon listings I link to be very accurate regarding show times and especially updated ones. If someone has a source where to find definitive and 'relatively easy to find' info on HD I'd be open to integration into the guide.

    And I guess it's because i have crt rptv that the HD aspect of any show is irrelevant for my recording purposes. I record every single show possible on the digital channel regardless of HD or not because the SD channels on directv look so terrible on my tv. I realize that may not be the case on every set though and available recording space would take priority.
