Save the Dates: A Better Mess, A New Laguna, More
Wednesday, July 25, 10:30 pm/ET BET debuts We Got to Do Better, which was formerly known as Hot Ghetto Mess but retitled "to highlight the show's real intent, which is to offer social commentary in a context that sparks dialogue, debate and, most importantly, change." August 8, 10 pm MTV launches Real World: Sydney: "Jealousy creates intense conflict, tension blossoms into romance, and unresolved issues from a cast member's past explodes, leaving tender relationships in tatters." All that and barbecued shrimp. August 13, 10 pm ABC Family introduces Slacker Cats, the cabler's first foray into animation. The "outrageous and decidedly grown-up" half-hour comedy tails two freeloading felines and features such voices as Alex Borstein, Kiersten Warren, Nicole Sullivan and Sinbad. August 15, 10:30 pm MTV premieres Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County, a Laguna Beach successor that promises "a new circle of friends as they discover first loves, face new rivalries and suffer new heartbreaks." But no barbecued shrimp.
