In the year-round TV schedule, finding a few weeks when there's not much new on our screens is a perfect opportunity to catch up on shows you've been meaning to watch. For your summer viewing pleasure, I've come up with a list of shows old and new, which helped create our "Golden Age" of TV. Here's your ultimate TV binge-watching guide.

Jon Stewart reverted to his "Daily Show" form on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," to mock the Republican National Convention, candidate Donald Trump and the Fox News Channel. Other late-night comedy hosts also took aim, including Seth Meyers, Trevor Noah and Bill Maher.

Despite impressing the "America's Got Talent" judges in their first audition, Portland-raised Ilan Swartz-Brownstein and his beatboxing partner, Josh Leviton, didn't make it through the July 19 "Judge Cut" episode, and won't move on to the live shows.

The 2016 Democratic National Convention happens July 25-28, as attention turns to presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Will the Democrats' gathering be as unpredictable as the Republican National Convention? Here's how to watch.

"The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" kicked off two weeks of live (on the East Coast) shows dedicated to making fun of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Based on Monday's first show, which included "The Colbert Report" bits, and a Jon Stewart cameo, Colbert is going to be in his element.
