That's because this week marks the return of New Girl, Twenty Twelve and their ridiculously catchy theme songs, while Shooting Stars creation Angelos Epithemiou will be going solo with his new Channel 4 show. And as if that wasn't enough, there's also the UK debut of Aaron Sorkin's long-awaited epic The Newsroom. Read on for full details...
Adam Buxton's Bug: Monday (July 9) at 9.30pm on Sky Atlantic
For the past five years, comic Buxton has been hosting a series of live shows examining the most interesting, vivid and downright weird music videos on the internet. Examining both the videos themselves and the reactions to them online, Bug promises to be "fun, cheeky and even a little bit educational", while Buxton himself sums up the series thus: "I tell people it's like going round to a friend's house and having them open their laptop and show you interesting and amusing things they've found or made, except not as tedious and s**t as that sounds."

New Girl: Tuesday (July 10) at 9pm on E4/Twenty Twelve: Tuesday at 10pm on BBC Two
Get ready, this Tuesday marks the return of not one, but two fantastic comedies. First up - finally - is Zooey Deschanel's New Girl, which debuts on its new home of E4 with an adorkable (sorry) double bill. In episode one, Deschanel's Jess reaches out to her surly landlord and, naturally, ends up on the verge of a threesome, while the following Valentine's Day special (are we really that far behind the US?) sees her determined to have an one-night stand with True Blood's Ryan Kwanten. Then at 10pm, we're back alongside Hugh Bonneville's Ian Fletcher and the rest of the Olympic Deliverance Committee for the final part of Twenty Twelve's second series. And with less than two weeks to go until London 2012, we're sure everything's going swimmingly.

The Newsroom: Tuesday (July 10) at 10pm on Sky Atlantic
Critical reaction to Aaron Sorkin's new HBO drama has been mixed, to say the least - some love it, while others have called it "preachy", chauvinistic and dull. Personally, we're in Sorkin's corner. Is The Newsroom preachy? Yes, but so was The West Wing and that didn't stop either show from being terrific drama. Either way, we'd suggest you ignore the critics and judge Sorkin's latest effort yourself.

The Angelos Epithemiou Show: Friday (July 13) at 10.35pm on Channel 4
Get ready to chant "What's in your bag, Angelos?" because Dan Renton Skinner's genius comedy creation has only gone and landed his own show. Embarrassing Bodies hunk Dr Christian Jessen, Gabby Logan and Conor Maynard are the brave souls joining the Shooting Stars favourite and burger van mogul for his first show proper, which we're promised will also feature a ton of anarchic stunts and sketches. Who needs Vic & Bob, eh?

Wallander: Sunday (July 15) at 9pm on BBC One
Sir Kenneth Branagh's sour-faced detective is back again in series three's second instalment, based on Henning Mankell's 1992 novel The Dogs of Riga. It's typically grim but compelling stuff as two bodies are discovered on a life raft in Ystad harbour, shot through the head and mutilated with acid. The regular cast excel as always and watch out for a guest spot from starring Danish actor Soren Malling, aka The Killing's Jan Meyer.
