Here are our summer ratings:

Summing it up. Repeats of Mike & Molly-Mon, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls-9P were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of Modern Family, The Middle) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and The Mindy Project).



Feeling the repeat blues? Look for original sitcoms on TV this summer. Some highlights include: Nick at Nite has the Scott Baio sitcom See Dad Run every Sunday at 8pm and the season two premiere is tonight at 8|7c, while Wendell & Vinnie is all-new tonight at 8:30pm. New episodes of Sam & Cat and The Haunted Hathaways air every Saturday beginning at 8pm on Nick! FX's Charlie Sheen sitcom Anger Management airs Thursdays at 9:30pm and is brand new this week. New sitcom airings are the perfect way to beat the summer blues!
