Everybody knows we're currently experiencing a golden age of television; this is no longer in dispute or interesting to talk about. Just ask all of the celebrities, who over the past few years have been flipping the double-bird to movies and applying for jobs in TV. Never has this been more true than in the current Summer TV lineup, which is so filthy with very famous actors we have to wear BluBlockers to protect our eyes from all the star power coming out of our TVs and bleaching out our living rooms. That is because Summer TV stars are more famous than ever!

And here is what they look like with ponytails:

Kiefer Sutherland, 24

Justin Theroux, The Leftovers

Anthony Stewart Head, Dominion

John Malkovich, Crossbones

Terry O'Quinn, Gang Related

Ben Savage, Girl Meets World

Cam Gigandet, Reckless

Clive Owen, The Knick

Eric Dane, The Last Ship

Halle Berry, Extant

This guy, The Strain
