3 TV shows you should be watching

'I am so bored and there's nothing to watch!'

The lament of every teenager becomes the cry of many adults.

Less so today when we're starting to see a return of summer programming.  (Something Ava and C.I. have spent years championing here.)  There are a lot of programs coming next month with huge expectations.

But right now, there are three great programs offering up weekly episodes.  You've got a comedy, a show about witches and a good old fashioned prime time soap opera.

1)  Spooked.  Geek & Sundry's latest program serves up a new episode every Wednesday.  You can stream it there or at YouTube or at Hulu.  Geeks & Sundry describes their new sitcom as follows:

Spooked is about a ragtag group of ghost hunters, comprised of their leader Connor (Julian Curtis), occult specialist Morgan (Ashley Johnson), tech aficionado Lindsey (Neil Grayston), fanboy Elliot (Derek Mio) and their secret weapon Piper (Shyloh Oostwald) who can actually talk to ghosts.

2) Salem.  WGN's Sunday night program takes you back to Puritan times with witches secretly ruling Salem led by Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) and Tituba (Ashley Madekwe).   John Alden (Shane West) returns to Salem after years of being at war.  He and Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel) have more or less teamed up to discover what is going on in Salem.  Rebecca blogs about the show.

3)  Mistresses.  ABC delivers melodrama Monday nights with the summer series now in its second seaon.  Ruth and Stan cover the show each week noting the latest dramas and crises plaguing Savi (Alyssa Milano), Karen (Yunjin Kim), April (Rochelle Aytes) and Joss (Jes Macallan).  Last season saw a murder, a car crash, the dissolution of a marriage, lots of sex and so much more.  You just know this season is going to top it and over-the-top it.
