Weeds fans, mark your calendars! On Monday, August 16, Nancy Botwin and her family return for the sixth season of Weeds, picking up after last season's shocking cliffhanger. Though Weeds is considered the "centerpiece" of Showtime's summer slate, viewers can look forward to other returning and new shows, including Penn and Teller: Bullshit!, The Big C, The Real L Word and The Green Room with Paul Provenza.

Penn and Teller: Bullshit! kicks off the network's summer program when it returns for its eighth season on Thursday, June 10 at 10/9c. America's favorite muckrakers will then serve as a lead-in to The Green Room with Paul Provenza at 10:30/9:30c which features Roseanne Barr, Sandra Bernhard, Eddie Izzard, Paul Mooney, Bob Saget and Jonathan Winters in a roundtable setting performing for a studio audience.

After a dose of comedy, Showtime launches The Real L Word, a reality series inspired by the network's long-running series The L Word, on Sunday, June 20 at 10pm. Just like the original series, The Real L Word will follow the lives of lesbians living in Los Angeles.

Last but not the least, three-time Emmy winner Laura Linney takes on the role of a wife, mother and teacher whose life changes after learning she has cancer on The Big C, which premieres on August 16 at 10:30/9:30c after Weeds.
