8. The Franchise, Showtime, Mondays at 10 p.m. ET, starting June 11
If ever a Major League Baseball manager seemed a perfect fit for reality TV, it would be Miami Marlins skipper Ozzie Guillen. No doubt the chatty Guillen, whose five-game suspension earlier this season for professing his "love" for Fidel Castro was just the latest of his public gaffes, will provide lots of Ozzie-being-Ozzie moments in this summer's installment of the Showtime series that follows a ballclub through the trials and tribulations of an entire season. The Marlins have Guillen, a shiny new ballpark, a revamped, pricey roster and even a new location, kind of — they officially changed from Florida to Miami this year. Expect lots of hardball drama inside and outside the lines.
