On Tuesday, June 16 look for the debuts of "Wedding Day" at 8:00/7:00c and "HawthoRNe" at 9:00/8:00c. "Day" is a reality series in which "deserving couples from all over the United States will get a helping hand to ensure the most important day of their lives is also the most magical." The Jada Pinkett Smith-led "HawthoRNe" then is a billed as a "character-driven medical drama told from the nurses' point of view."

And finally on Wednesday, July 15, keep an eye out for the return of "Leverage" at 9:00/8:00c followed by the series premiere of "Dark Blue."
