Since it's the summer, we're not expecting you to do math with actual numbers.
Welcome to TV Math 101 (Math - Numbers + TV shows= TV Math).
We've put together equations for many of this summer's anticipated TV premieres from celebrity dating show "The Choice" (premieres Thursday, June 7, 9 p.m. ET on Fox) to Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" (premieres Sunday, June 24, 10 p.m. ET on HBO).
From premise to setting and characters to cast, many of this season's TV debuts sound familiar in some way or another other shows that we've seen. We've added together which TV shows are similar to this summer's new programs and then subtracted the parts that don't apply to them.
Check out the formulas we came up with and share yours in the comments below:
