  1. Hi. Great post thanks. I can bookmark this page instead of going to each Network’s web site to figure it all out. YEAH! I noticed Stargate Universe and Sanctuary weren’t on the SyFy list. Is it possible to add these also? Thanks.

  2. I love Burn Notice. Hope Bruce Campbell is back.

  3. This was very helpful, but it would be even more useful if you could include fall finale info as well. And, NBC’s Community isn’t listed…

  4. What about Ugly Betty? Or is not starting back up:( if possible can you add! Thnx!xoxo

  5. Go team “24”!

    Love the Screen Rant header photo that looks real cool you guys should incorporate it permanently and maybe make up another one that includes the logos of the film studios for weekend wrapups etc!?.
    Cool layout!

  6. @790

    That IS a nice header, to bad we’re not doing more regular TV wrap ups these days.


  7. HEY VIC you have Sreenrant Gamerant how about a hat trick TVRANT

  8. when is V and Flash Forward coming back for ABC and when is Mercy & Trauma coming back for NBC?

  9. 24 is the best show in the history of history, no one is cooler or tougher than Jack Bauer!

    Plus cannot wait for Supernatural and Smallville to be back, missing those shows already, and SGU is back this week I believe.

    Only 2 eps of Dexter and Californication left. No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Damages (FX), Season 3 – 25 January 2009

    For those who haven’t seen it, the plot/script/direction is clever and full of twist… highly recommended!

    (not to mention that Rose B is Aussie Aussie Aussie HOT HOT HOT ;o) )

  11. What about Castle on ABC?


  12. @ DrSamBeckett

    Ha! I laugh in your general direction. How short must your memory be to have forgotten the Holy Fonz? He was cool before Jack Bauer was soiling diapers!

    as for how tough is Jack Bauer? he couldn’t hold Walker, Texas Ranger’s horse, much less his jock. How dare you profane these boards with such an unworthy opinion!

    pshaw, my good man, pshaw… and here’s a harumph for you as well! (with all due thanks to Mel Brooks)

    Now do yourself a favor and go and rewatch season one starring your character namesake and may Ziggy have pity on your immortal soul!!!!!!!

    and yeah, I’m looking forward to Sons of Tucson, sounds just off kilter enough to be appealing.

  13. What about House and Community?

  14. FlashForward and V are back in March.

  15. I can’t wait to see Supernatural, Bones, Burn Notice and Southland.
