Law & Order: Criminal Intent
The snow's barely begun to melt, but NBC is looking ahead to warmer months already with the announcement of the network's summer TV schedule.
Along with the sunshine, June will bring with it a bevy of season finales, series premieres and other seasonal kick-offs to mark on your calendar. Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order will wrap up their seasons on June 2 and 3, respectively (both at 10 pm/ET). Law & Order: Criminal Intent's season premiere arrives soon after, on June 8 (9 pm/ET). Shows usually close seasons during May sweeps, but NBC is hoping the June wrap-up will boost Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show debut, premiering June 1.
New series will also bow, starting with The Listener June 4 (10 pm/ET), which stars Craig Olejnik (The Timekeeper) as a telepathic EMT, and Merlin — about the mythical magician — on June 21 (8 pm/ET). Ex-Party of Fiver Neve Campbell and Rome alum James Purefoy debut June 24 (10 pm/ET) in The Philanthropist, which depicts a playboy-turned-vigilante-do-gooder.
