The West Wing
With network TV season finales firmly in the rearview mirror and summer shows not yet back in full rotation, many regular TV viewers are likely facing the same dilemma: What to watch? Sure, it's great to finally have more than 5 percent storage space left on our DVRs, but it's difficult to suddenly go from carefully planning Sunday night series' schedules to watching — gasp! — repeats. But as that old, awful NBC marketing campaign goes "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you." So, which series should you dive into during this down time? Below, TVGuide.com editors share their binge-watching selections for the summer...
Matthew McConaughey, Bryan Cranston
Breaking Bad, True Detective, The Good Wife were among the shows that received nominations for the 30th Television Critics Association Awards.
The final season of Breaking Bad will have to defend its title as Program of the Year in an impossibly tight race against True Detective, Game of Thrones, The Good Wifeand Orange Is the New Black. Bryan Cranston, Matthew McConaughey and Julianna Margulies are nominated for Individual Achievement in Drama, alongside The Americans' Matthew Rhys and Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany.
Michael J. Fox, Matt Czuchry and Julianna Margulies
The gloves come off in a sensational finale to an incredible season of CBS's The Good Wife (Sunday, 9/8c), one of the best and hands down the most purely entertaining drama series anywhere on TV. The intrigue is riveting as rival law firms (Florrick/Agos, Lockhart/Gardner) go for broke, using any means necessary — including possibly illegal electronic eavesdropping — to get the advantage on the other in what now seems a fight to the death. Partners battle partners between and within both teams, and when Christine Baranski (the embattled Diane) faces off with Michael J. Fox (ruthless interloper Louis Canning) for control of the firm she built with the late Will Gardner, the fireworks are as awesome as the surprising fallout.

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's season finale of Once Upon a Time. Read at your own risk!]
The Once Upon a Time season finale, aptly titled "There's No Place Like Home," was all about finding home, and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) did just that, but she wasn't the only one!
Tatiana Maslany, Michiel Huisman
Everybody join the Clone Club!
It's Binge Saturday and this week's pick is Orphan Black. This exciting BBC America original stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, a woman who adopts the identity of someone she witnesses committing suicide only to later learn that they are actually clones of each other — and there are more out there.
The devil made them remake it. What other excuse can there be for NBC's glossy but laborious two-part revisiting of the Ira Levin supernatural classic Rosemary's Baby (Sunday, 9/8c, concludes next Thursday)? Perversely scheduled to begin on the evening of Mother's Day, this unnecessarily expanded miniseries version owes a huge debt to The Omen for many of its telegraphed shocks.
Tatiana Maslany and Jordan Gavaris
Orphan Black's Felix Dawkins is more than just a party boy with a toned set of buns. On the sci-fi drama Saturday (9/8c, BBC America), our favorite foster brother (Jordan Gavaris) is currently on the run with sis Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) and her daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler). We haven't seen Felix quite like this before
Ellen Pompeo, James Spader, Mary Lynn Rajskub

Will Amelia stick around next season on Grey's Anatomy? — Tara
There's no official word on what the cast will look like next year, but it's safe to say Amelia will find it more difficult to leave Seattle this time around. "She's really realizing the value of having her family around," Caterina Scorsone tells me. "She's definitely thinking about the pros and cons of living so far away in Los Angeles." One major pro? Having a new sister! Look for Amelia and Meredith to do some major bonding while Derek is out of town.
What's up with Chloe's look on 24: Live Another Day? — Jessica
Isn't that what all computer hackers look like? In all seriousness...
Porsha Stewart, Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore
Our top moments of the week:
13. Worst Melodrama: It's midway through Dancing with the Stars, and that means it's time for the annual Maks temper tantrum. Still burned by Julianne Hough's "phoning it in" comment and feeling the pressure to deliver for Meryl Davis, Maks comes thisclose to blowing a gasket, but is talked off the ledge by Meryl, who tells him to hold her hand. "It's really crazy. I must be the weakest freaking person in this ...

For a brand new series on a mysterious network, WGN America's Salem pulled in some pretty surprising numbers Sunday.
