Summer is drawing near, and that means Summer TV Shows are coming too! I always like summer tv shows because  they’re not heavy on drama, most of them even reality shows (I know i’m a reality-junkie). Anyways, from the information that I can gather so far, here’s the list of Summer TV Shows:

NBC:

  • Kings, new episode returns in June date TBA
  • Merlin, series Premiere Sunday, June 21st 8/7c
  • I’m Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, series Premiere, Monday, June 1st 8/7c
  • America’s Got Talent, series Premier, Tuesday, June 23 8/7c
  • The Philanthropist, series Premiere Wednesday, June 24th 10/9c
  • The Great American Road Trip, series Premiere Tuesday, July 7th 8/7c

ABC:

  • Wipeout, Premieres Wednesday, May 27 8/7c
  • I Survived Japanese Game Show, Premieres Wednesday, July 8 9/8c
  • The Superstar, Premieres Tuesday, June 23 8/7c
  • Dating in the Dark, Premieres Monday, July 20 10/9c
  • The Superstars Premieres Tuesday, June 23 8/7c

FOX:

  • So You Think You Can Dance premiers Thursday, May 21 8/7c

CBS:

  • Big Brother premiers Thursday, July 9 8/7c

So far great line up, for NBC and ABC. Can’t wait for summer. I can’t find any info about new summer shows on CW, I guess they’ll just do reruns.

Old and New

Posted on: May 8, 2009

So there’s no new episode of Howie Do It tonight, so in the mean time, I’m compiling some info to make a post about Summer TV Shows. I’ll probably post it sometime next week. So check back soon, and if you have any information that you’d like me to add to my post, let me know 🙂

On tonight’s Howie Do It, the first prank was really funny. They hired a guy to be a pranker, just to get him pranked 😆 He was supposed to be the worst waiter ever, like Howie did on the first episode the one with the finger on the glass, but this time the table was turned, and Howie became the angry customer. The last prank on the first episode was kinda the “recycled” prank where they held an audition for soap opera where they guy had to kiss an old woman. It was a like an extended edition though, because this time there was Vic who became another guy who auditioned for the role.

The first prank on the 2nd episode was the Pizza Man, where a pizza delivery guy was hired for a role in a Pizza-superhero movie 😆 There was also another “recycled” prank where Howie became a fake fortune teller. He got someone to apologize for something that they would do in the future.

As usual, if you miss these episodes or just want to watch it again, watch it at NBC.com or Hulu.com

There are two new Howie Do It episodes tonight. The first episode was Law & Order style.The first prank was a guy was “framed” to be a murderer. He happened to wear a bunny suit, just like the killer. Poor guy was drilled by Vic Cohen to confess 😆 The other prank that I like on that episode was a guy was going to be on a new Judge show, where he had to decide who deserved to get a heart donation: a teacher who’s relative to the donor or a “pending” criminal who was a smoker, but was on the recipient list for 4 years.

Race in ??

I missed tonight’s Amazing Race 😦 I forgot to change the clock on my car so I didn’t realize that I was running late on my way home. Well, I’ll update this post with the recap of the episode once it’s available to watch online 🙂

That’s a long list of new episodes/new shows to watch. For more info on the new series, visit the network’s official website. So, which shows are you going to tune in?

Also, some Japanese games can be very harsh for some people. But for the Japanese, the games are fun and made to make people laugh, and that’s all they care about.

The famous “spank-for-laughing” game: the Batsu (Punishment) Games.
The best-known video is the english-lesson video part of the season 3 where the guys had to spend a day in high school:

The graduation day – more spanking!

Hillarious, even the spankers can’t help laughing.

There are 5 seasons of the No Laughing game:
No-Laughing Hot Spring Inn (2003)
No Laughing in Yugawara (2004)
No-Laughing High School (2005)
No-Laughing Police Station (2006)
No-Laughing Hospital (2007)

The group is called Gaki no Tsukai. To watch all videos with English sub, click here. He has all 13 video of Gaki No Tsukai Onsen Batsu 1.

There’s another recently well-known game played by Gaki no Tsukai, the Silent Library Game. So much for the name, the game isn’t silent at all even though they are trying so hard. It’s really funny!
Part 1:

Part 2:

No sub for these videos, but there aren’t much talking.
Part one:

Part two:

Part three:

Again, as always, there’s some other version, like this one by Binghamton University students:

The ones below are pretty extreme. Yes, they are funny, but I don’t quite get it, a little bit out of the line IMO.

This one is simply OUCH:
