10 Things I Hate About You

If you’ve got the network rerun summertime blues, just turn to ABC Family and you’ll find the cure for what what ails you.

Their newest series, 10 Things I Hate About You, debuts tonight at 8/7c. It’s based on the 1999 film that starred Julia Stiles and introduced us to Heath Ledger. That’s reason alone to tune in. Ethan Peck (Gregory Peck’s grandson) takes on the role of Patrick Verona in the TV version, while Lindsay Shaw plays Kat. My Tivo is set and I’m counting down the hours until tonight’s premiere.

I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t watch The Secret Life of the American Teenager last season, but I’m happy to report that I’m hooked on the new episodes. I love seeing ’80s teen queen Molly Ringwald as a parent surrounded by a new generation of young actors. This critically acclaimed series is definitely worth your attention.

But I’ve saved the best for last: I’m completely obsessed with Make It or Break It, the delicious new series set in the world of competitive gymnastics. Ayla Kell, Josie Loren and Cassie Scerbo play Payson, Kaylie and Lauren, respectively. They’re the top three gymnasts in their elite club in Boulder, Colorado, until Emily (Chelsea Hobbs) rocks their world. Trust me, it’s delicious.
