A bunch of summer series return with a handful of new ones thrown into this week’s mix. Also, The ESPYs! Happy viewing! (This week’s listings are a little late because I’m just back from vacation. Since there was nothing new on Sunday, I took a chance that this hopefully won’t be an inconvenience to you. My apologies.)
