Five Must-See Television Shows in the Next Month

Looking for some new television shows to watch this month while the temperatures climb? Good, because there’s plenty to choose from. Check these out:

Miz & Mrs: It was only a matter of time before Miz TV became something kind of real. The Miz, a WWE superstar was born under the name Michael Gregory Mizanin before becoming one of the hottest names in wrestling. Today, he is married to fellow WWE superstar Maryse and the couple just had their first baby. Now their lives are going to play out in front of the camera starting July 24th at 10 p.m. on USA. The Miz has been on television before, starting out on MTV’s The Real World, back in 2001.

“It’s pretty insane,” Maryse told EW of their lives and the series.

“We made a 30-minute comedy and it’s things that people can relate to and I think that’s what’s gonna set us apart from everybody else,” said The Miz to 411Mania.

Ted Williams: The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived: This documentary features never-before-seen footage of Williams’ final game and includes new interviews with Bob Costas, Wade Boggs, Ben Bradlee Jr. and Joey Votto. “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived” premieres Monday, July 23 at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings) in honor of Williams’ centennial (August 30, 1918 – July 5, 2002).
