7 Returning Shows to Watch

'True Blood' and 'The Closer' remain old reliables on your summer must-watch list

AARP recommends seven summer television shows for the 50+ audience- Louie on FX

Louie C.K. is the man behind FX's Louie.


FX, Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. EST, returns June 28

Comedian Louis C.K. is outrageous, profane and brilliant — and so is his show, which revolves around a fictionalized version of himself and kicks off Season 3 this summer. For years, Louis C.K. has been revered within the insular world of comedians, but this hilarious series, which he writes, edits and directs, has helped a broader audience discover his talents. This year, Time magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World — not a bad gig for a standup comic. Be warned: The show may be about a single dad raising two daughters, but it's a decidedly adult comedy, with coarse language and frank sex talk. There's a reason it airs at 10:30 on a cable network. It's also hilarious.

AARP recommends seven summer television shows for the 50+ audience- Episodes on Showtime

Showtime, Sundays at 10:30 p.m. EST, returns July 1

Be honest: You always thought Matt LeBlanc was the Friends cast member who was least likely to find more success after the long-running NBC hit went off the air in 2004. Don't feel bad. We all did. But LeBlanc has revitalized his career with this Showtime series, in which he plays himself — or a version of himself: a fading Hollywood star working with British writers and producers on a new TV series based on a British hit. Fellow Friends alum Lisa Kudrow pulled a similar trick on HBO's undeservedly short-lived The Comeback, and Larry David and Jason Alexander had fun with the concept on a Curb Your Enthusiasm storyline, but LeBlanc makes the notion feel fresh and funny. Take that, Chandler.

Other notable returns: Royal Pains (USA, Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST, returned June 6); Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST, returned June 5); Falling Skies (TNT, Sundays at 9 p.m. EST, returned June 17); Weeds (Showtime, Sundays at 10 p.m., returns July 1); White Collar (USA, Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST, returns July 10); Breaking Bad (AMC, Sundays at 10 p.m. EST, returns July 15.)
