Summer TV preview: What to watch as the weather warms up

Now that spring TV season is coming to an end -- with all its finales, renewals and introductions of new series at the upfronts -- it's time to look ahead to summer.

The warm months will bring beaches and barbecues, but also some new offerings and returning shows back again like your BFFs from sleepaway camp.

We've compiled a list of premiere dates to look out for, including the second season of "Orange is the New Black" on Netflix, the premiere of "The Leftovers" on HBO and the return of CBS' "Under the Dome." And would it even be summer without reality show staples like "Big Brother," "America's Got Talent" and "So You Think You Can Dance"? We didn't think so.
