When’s It Coming Back? Television Winter Return Schedule 2012

The holidays were great, weren’t they? Good food, good friends, lots of time with the family – all the good stuff that the holidays bring. Noaw that they’ve over though, I’m turning my attention back to the television to get lost in some of my favorite shows. Some are returning from their winter hiatus while others are starting whole new seasons (long overdue new seasons in the case of NBC’s 30 Rock) and of course there is a whole new crop of fresh shows to check out. As much as I love this time of year, I hate having to try to track down what is returning and when. Because I’m a giving person always hoping to help out a fellow television addict in need, I’ve put together a handy list to help you sort everything out. Below, you’ll find mid-season return dates, networks, show titles and time slots organized for easy reference. Looking for a specific show? Hit “ctrl” and your “f” key, type in the name of the show in the little box that appears and you’ll be taken straight to the show. I’ll update this list as things change. Brand new shows are underlined.
