I can’t believe Comic-Con is only a week away and I feel so unprepared! The panel schedules were announced last weekend, and there are so many great shows that conflict—not unlike the primetime TV schedule! To help you resolve your own TV scheduling conflicts, we’ve got some suggestions on what you should check out tonight.
Tonight, USA premieres their own camp series, Summer Camp, an 8-week reality competition series (not to be confused with NBC’s new scripted series Camp, which premiered last night). In this series, 16 men and women are sent back to summer camp to relive their youth. The campers are split into two teams—men versus women—that will compete against one another in contests inspired by classic camp games. The team that loses each competition must send two of its members to the other camp, where the winning team will decide which of the pair will be sent packing. In the end, the winning team will split the $250K prize among its remaining members.
It looks like they have really tried to cover all the archetypes when building these teams. The girls camp consists of the Country Girl, the Geek, the Model, the Pageant Queen, the Bayou Bodybuilder, the Yogi, the Mean Girl, and the Flirt—while the guys camp is made up of the Smart Ass, the Hunter, the Class Clown, the Broadway Performer, the Sci-Fi Nerd, the Cowboy, the Soldier, and the Firefighter. This could be a fun twist on the usual reality competition series, and I’m looking forward to checking it out.
On tonight’s episode, “Welcome to Summer Camp,” the two camps clash as they come together for their first camp socail and compete in a canoeing Color War, in which the losing team has to banish two of its members to the opposing camp, which in turn has to decide which of the two leaves for good.
See which team rows their way to the winner’s circle tonight on USA Network at 8/7c.
