The holidays are now over, and 2014 is upon us, and with it comes a television premiere/return schedule even more complicated than in the fall. As old and new favorites return from break, even more old and new shows will begin to premiere, and it will be up to you to decide what to and, more importantly, what not to watch.

Fortunately we have organized all the premiere dates here for you, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out which shows will receive your time. If you need a bit of help in deciding what to watch, make sure to check out a trimmed-down selection in our premiere picks.
