Aaron Sorkin has written television shows about television before, and both met fairly similar fates. Although “Sports Night” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” were met with a good deal of critical acclaim, the former lasted only two seasons before it was cancelled due to low ratings, while the latter only made it through one season for the same reason. Sorkin and HBO will be hoping that critical acclaim is coupled with returning audiences for his new show, “The Newsroom,” when it premieres on June 24th.

While HBO and AMC may be the places on cable to go on Sunday nights for higher brow fare, if you're looking for something a bit more surreal, irreverant and edgy, Adult Swim has you covered. Hip-hop collective Odd Future has joined the network's Sunday night line up with their show "Loiter Squad," and it has been doing extraordinarily well. Just how good? The show is the top-ranked program in its time slow for audiences in those key 18-24 and 18-34 demographics. Not too bad at all.

If cable has proven to be a boon to dramatic storytelling, that is no less true for comedies as well. Shows like "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" or the unjustly cancelled "Bored To Death" deliver the kind of irreverance and wit you're just not going to see on network broadcasting. HBO's newly unveiled "Girls" is a further example of funny material that moves away from standard sitcom tropes and as fans of Louis C.K. already know, he's been delivering the goods with "Louie" for two seasons already.
