'Major Crimes' and 'Falling Skies' return in June, plus more TNT premiere dates

major-crimes-s2-premiere-date.jpgTNT has set premiere dates for a big lineup of summer series that will have the cable channel airing original programming five nights a week.

Crime dramas "Major Crimes" and "Rizzoli & Isles" will anchor two-hour blocks on Monday and Tuesday nights starting in June, with new series "King & Maxwell" -- starring Rebecca Romijn and "The Closer" and "Major Crimes" alum Jon Tenney as private eyes -- joining the Monday lineup and Season 2 of "Perception" following "R&I" on Tuesdays.

"Falling Skies" also debuts in June and will remain in its Sunday night home, and "Franklin & Bash" opens its third season in late July. Thursday nights will feature an unscripted block with competition series "The Hero," hosted by Dwayne Johnson, and "72 Hours," in which contestants have three days to find a hidden stash of cash. Docudrama "Cold Justice" will air on Tuesdays after "Perception" wraps.
