Midseason 2009 Premiere Schedule

If you’re at all like me, you dread the holiday season for one reason, and one reason only…bad television. Nothing sucks more after a long day of shopping at the mall, and wresting for parking places, than coming home, curling up on your couch, and being forced to watch Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer. Granted, there are some classics I look forward to, but I’d take a Fringe or Lost holiday special over them all any day of the week (and holiday specials almost always suck!).

So, naturally I figured it was time to start talking about the quickly approaching midseason or winter premiere dates of our favoriate shows. A few of the shows just left us a day or two ago, while others have been missing for some time. So take a look at the list, block out some time on your blackberry or iphone, and don’t forget to set your DVRs. January is going to be FANTASTIC!
