The Vegas showgirl lifestyle loses its luster for a classically trained ballerina (Sutton Foster), who impulsively marries an admirer (Alan Ruck) and moves to his sleepy seaside community of Paradise, Calif., where his mother (Kelly Bishop) runs a dance studio — and lives with him and his new bride. “Bunheads” is also a great choice for those in “Gilmore Girls” withdrawal — it comes from “GG” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and features her trademark machine-gun quips and pop-culture references.
Premieres Monday at 9 p.m. on ABC Family

The backstabbing of “Revenge”

Watch …


The Ewing clan is just as contemptuous as you remember from the hit prime-time soap of the ’80s — and now the next generation is involved in the family’s favorite pastime of screwing each other over. Returning principals include Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing, Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing and Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing; rekindling the family rivalry is J.R. and Sue Ellen’s son John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Bobby’s adopted son, Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), who take on the roles of their fathers. The oil fields of Texas remain a focal point, but because this is 2012, expect a few lessons on alternative energy in between all the fussin’ and feudin’. Premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. on TNT

“Anger Management”
FX says Charlie Sheen is re­formed (we’d say reformed-ish) since the melt­down that forced his exit from the No. 1 sitcom last year. Adapted from the film of the same name, this comedy finds Sheen as a guy whose anger issues lead him to be­come a therapist. He’s got a teen daughter to give him a sense of responsibility, but there’s also a string of ladies interested in the former bad boy. Must be the tiger blood. Pre­mieres June 28 at 9 p.m. on FX

The high-stakes workplace of “The Good Wife”

Watch …

“The Newsroom”
Delivering the news isn’t pretty; the business of delivering the news is even uglier in this behind-the-scenes look at the people who produce a cable-news program. Just as he did on “The West Wing,” writer Aaron Sorkin has created another community of flawed fast-talkers with noble intentions. Jeff Daniels stars as the news team’s anchor (literally and metaphorically) who tries to deliver “real” stories while his producers and network (Emily Mortimer, Olivia Munn, Sam Waterston, Jane Fonda) fret over ratings. Premieres June 24 at 10 p.m. on HBO
