The Most Exciting TV Events Everyone Will Be Watching This Summer
People love watching TV together. While watching a great television show by yourself is wonderful, discussing the show’s most surprising moments with your friends or the approximately three billion other people who use social media takes that entertainment to the next level.
It’s also why people host “viewing parties” where they put out some bowls of snacks and sit down with their friends and family to enjoy a major TV premiere or event together. This summer, there will be many opportunities for you to do that, so get your phone out and start planning for the most exciting television events that everyone will be watching this summer.
Eurovision Song Contest
The Eurovision Song Contest is often referred by people in the Americas as the “strange TV talent show going on across the pond.” It is known for its peculiar outfits, nonsensical songs and the many rivalries between European countries. However, 186 million people watched Eurovision last year showing that for many people, it’s a major TV event.
More people are expected to watch the annual TV show this year as its list of contestants has been expanded and Australia now competes. Eurovision betting has also allowed people to put money on which European country they think is going to go home with the top award. While the betting odds show that there are some favorites to win (such as the Netherlands, Italy, and Russia), the competition and the ability to bet real money on the show makes this a massive TV event.
Big Little Lies
Big Little Lies is an HBO drama that stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Laura Dern. It covers themes such as friendship, marriage, and lies. With a cast like that, it was little surprise that the show was critically acclaimed and drew millions of viewers around the world.
The first season debuted in 2017 and with the second season of Big Little Lies set to release this summer, it looks as though it could be a major TV event that everyone will be talking about. The trailer has gotten fans of the series marking the premiere date (June 9) and the positive ratings from critics mean that those who skipped the show in season one may tune in for season two.
Reality television show The Bachelorette is airing its 15th season this summer. The competition sees one single woman choose from a cast of single men, as she tries to find a potential husband (or at least a long-term partner). The show is full of twists and turns as secrets about the contestants come out and as fans wonder who The Bachelorette is going to pick at the end of it.
The show is always fun to watch and the comments on social media add to that. These viewers react to everything about the show from the cast of new contestants, to the person that The Bachelorette has picked or the things that the contestants get up to during their dates.
Whether you’re in reality TV, great pop music or a drama by a cast of award-winning actors, there will likely be a big TV event to suit your interests. So start planning to stay in with your comfy pajamas because you’re going to spend a lot of time in front of the TV!
