Midseason Premiere and Return Dates: Network and Cable Shows

calendar

January isn’t only a time for New Year’s resolutions, it’s also the start of the midseason television schedule. From now until the summer, the broadcast and cable channels will be debuting new shows (such as The Following on Fox, which is a must-see) and will air the season premieres for returning shows (such as Game of Thrones on HBO).  To help you keep track of the new and returning shows, we’ve put together this list of premiere dates.  At the bottom is a list of shows that we know are returning or premiering in the spring or summer of 2013, but don’t yet have exact dates.  If we missed your favorite returning or most anticipated new show, let us know in the comments!
