12 Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2013

With so many networks on the air, it can be a bit difficult to get excited about an entire year of television at once. To help keep your hopes high throughout 2013, here's a list of our 12 most anticipated shows. Ranging from the beginning of the year to the end, this list contains 12 shows you should be excited about seeing in 2013.

The Real Husbands of Hollywood (BET)

Real Husband of Hollywood Premieres: Tuesday, January 15 The Real Husbands of Hollywood, created by comedian Kevin Hart, is a parody series about the "lives" of Hart, Nick Cannon, J.B. Smoove, Duane Martin, Robin Thicke and Boris Kodjoe. Originally premiering as a segment during the 2011 BET Awards with Samuel L. Jackson, this semi-scripted comedy series (like Curb Your Enthusiasm) may very well be television's sleeper hit of the year. If your interest in the show has yet to be piqued, you should check out a preview HERE.

The Following (Fox)

The Following - Fox Premieres: Monday, January 21 Kevin Bacon is taking on network television with The Following, a psychological drama about a former FBI agent, Ryan Hardy (Bacon), who must return to the agency to help bring down a network of serial killers created by Joe Carroll, an imprisoned serial killer - and Hardy's nemesis. The Following marks Fox's attempt at bringing a dark, gritty cable-esque series to network television. The story itself unfolds like a miniseries, where final scenes of the previous episode kick off the next. And unlike CBS's attempt at airing a network-friendly version of Dexter in 2008, The Following doesn't shy away from the gore.

The Walking Dead Season 3, Part 2, & 4 (AMC)

The Walking Dead Season 3 Premieres: Sunday, February 17 (Season 4: October 2013) The Walking Dead season 3 helped breathe new life into AMC's hit series by moving the survivors into the prison setting and introducing the Governor and Michonne, two fan-favorites from the comics, who helped amp the suspence during the show's third year. As of recent, showrunner Glen Mazzara has left the series, following in the footsteps of original showrunner Frank Darabont. With AMC playing it fast and loose with its creative minds, everyone is waiting to see how Mazzara's departure will impact the series in season 4 - as well as who gets tapped to fill one of television's most unreliable jobs. Until then, we have the second half of season 3 to enjoy.

Game of Thrones Season 3 (HBO)

Game of Thrones Season 3 Premieres: Sunday, March 31 When Game of Thrones returns for season 3, the tale of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is getting supersized for its third year on the air. Thanks to the epic length (and arc) of the third source novel, "A Storm of Swords", this season of Game of Thrones will be delivering something special. And bigger dragons.

Arrested Development Season 4

Arrested Development Season 4 Premieres: Spring 2013 After over 7 years off the air, the Bluth family is finally making their return in Arrested Development season 4. Although the show had difficulty finding an audience during its original run on Fox, Arrested Development quickly gained popularity when the entire series was made available on Netflix. It became so popular that Netflix was able to accomplish what many thought was impossible: they ordered a new season of Arrested Development and will make the entire season available at once exclusively on their service. This could change the entire way we view TV.

Breaking Bad Season 5, Part 2 (AMC)

Breaking Bad Season 5 Premieres: Sunday, July 15 After five years of following Walter White's transformation from chemistry teacher to drug kingpin, the tale of one of television's most beloved characters will finally be coming to an end. And the world will be watching with bated breath as it happens! What will happen to Walter White? Will Heisenberg be captured? Will Jesse turn on Walter? How will it end? All of those questions - and more - will finally be answered this year.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC)

SHIELD Premieres: September 2013 Now that Marvel has its Phase II movies underway, it's time to spread some of that superhero success to the small screen with S.H.I.E.L.D., a series based on the organization created to monitor and protect the world from otherworldly dangers, whether it be a missing alien weapon or Thor's brother, Loki. While it's unlikely that any of the Avengers (or their enemies) will be stopping by network television this fall, Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) will be returning to headline the (likely) procedural series. How is it that Coulson is returning? You'll just have to wait and see.

Dexter Season 8 (Showtime)

Dexter Season 8

Premieres: September 2013 If all goes according to the plan of the producers, this year will feature the final tale of television's favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan. But what, exactly, will happen in the series' final moments? Will Dexter get away with his murders or end up behind bars? Although producers have already revealed a bit about what fans can expect to see next season, the shocking Dexter season 7 finale had already set things up for next season, where the repercussions of certain events could either help or hurt Dexter's attempt at staying in the shadows. Of course, if Showtime has its way, Dexter season 9 could still happen.

Girl Meets World (Disney)

Boy Meets World Sequel - Cory & Topanga Premieres: Summer/Fall 2013 When Disney first announced that they would be developing a sequel to the hit ABC series Boy Meets World, titled Girl Meets World, nostalgia took over the Internet and, for the first time, most everyone agreed with each other: bring back Cory and Topanga! Now that the pilot is completed (by Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs) and Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have signed on, it's time to sit back and wait for the return of one of television's most iconic couples, now with children. More importantly, it's time wait and see whom from the original series will be making their return, even if it is brief.

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary (BBC America)

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Premieres: TBA (Anniversary: November 23) Doctor Who, one of television's most beloved series, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and everyone is waiting to see what executive producer Steven Moffat has in store for the fans. Although not much has been about announced about Doctor Who's 50th anniversary, hopes are high that a few of the 6 remaining actors who played the Doctor previously will return, along with a few former companions. No matter what the plan is, expect the BBC to go all-out to celebrate this television milestone.

Hit Somebody (TBA)

  Hit Somebody Premieres: TBA Hit Somebody, originally planned as Kevin Smith's final feature film, is now receiving the miniseries treatment, making Clerks 3 his final film. Even though Smith still plans to retire from film after everything is said and done, his first real attempt at a scripted series may very well spark the next chapter of his career - taking the cult director's tales from the theater into your living room.

Derren Brown in the US (TBA)

Derren Brown in the US Premieres: TBA Since most American's will be unfamiliar with Derren Brown, here are a few things you should know: Derren is one of the greatest magicians in the world Derren is one of the greatest performers in the world From getting someone to admit to a murder they didn't commit (HERE) to bringing about the Apocalypse for one "lucky" individual (HERE), Derren Brown has replaced the typical magician TV show with a series of extremely compelling social experiments that only he could pull off. (Listen to Editor-in-Chief Kofi Outlaw's awakening to the greatness of Derren Brown - HERE.) Last fall, Derren Brown finally filmed a pilot for a US show. Other than that, nothing else is currently known: network, timeframe – if we'll even see it on television. However, with Derren Brown's popularly continuing to grow, it's only a matter of time before he breaks big in America. Fingers crossed that it'll be this year!

Conclusion

  1. Once again the liberal media denies reality because of political correctness. Here in realville, the number one anticipated program is Duck Dynasty, but because this show promotes two things that the networks hate, God and Guns, it is poo-pooed by the elites of Hollywood.

    The first knife in the series was The King Tut Dagger, a
    historically accurate reproduction of the same weapon found buried with Tutankhamen.

    The strength of Damascus blades have inspired tall tales about
    them being strong enough to cut through a rifle barrel, yet sharp enough to split
    a hair that fell upon them.

    that ultimately matters, but what results your team takes home
    with them.
