The television season ends this week, and we head into those months when network TV is a vast rerunland. Usually, by now, at least one of the network entertainment chiefs would have offered the empty assurance that this time they really will give us fresh summer programming. This year we didn't get even that specious blandishment—which means viewers may be in for a particularly long, dry season. I promise to be diligent in rooting around for decent shows in the coming weeks, but if it's as bad as I think it's going to be, then, basically, it's every man, woman and jack dog for themselves.
