BuzzSugar's Guide to Winter TV

BuzzSugar's Guide to Winter TV

Need something new to watch now that the writers' strike is snatching your old favorite shows away? Fear not: The TV calendar is about to fill up with new shows and season premieres of some old favorites. Even more than usual this year, this list is subject to change as networks try to figure out their strike plans, so I'll do my best to update as schedules shift — most finales dates, for example, could change if shows go back in production. Did I skip your favorite? Leave a comment, and I'll try to track it down. If you're looking for a current list of how many episodes various shows have left, this is a good one.
