Here's to a long hot summer of TV – in case you're tempted to venture outside in the sweltering heat, the airwaves are full of excellent reasons to stay inside and watch. Our summer TV preview has brilliant new shows and returning old favorites, from the Iron Throne to the Black Lodge. There are innovative dramas about stand-up comics, female wrestlers, drug dealers and Seventies stand-up comics. There are clones and cowgirls and dragons. There are erotic thrillers, wild comedies and ridiculous game shows. Praise the TV gods and pour the damn good coffee.
