Tuesday, June 22, 9 and 10 p.m., TNT
Why we're watching:
Season 2 of "Hawthorne" will find Christina (Jada Pinkett Smith) transferred to a new hospital with a new set of issues -- including a head nurse (Vanessa Bell Calloway) who has a very set way of doing things. She'll also continue trying to build her relationship with Tom (Michael Vartan).
"Memphis Beat" had us at "Jason Lee plays a cop/Elvis impersonator." But while there are some very amusing elements to the new series, it's also a strong character study of a man who's utterly devoted to the city he protects. That and a strong supporting cast that includes Alfre Woodard, DJ Qualls and Celia Weston will have us setting the DVR.
