winter premieres edt

Clockwise from top left: The Mindy Project, Homeland, Throwing Shade, Reign, Jeff and Some Aliens, The Young Pope

The cold weather ushers in some familiar TV favorites like Homeland, Girls, and The Path that debut new seasons after the holidays, while fall titles like How to Get Away With Murder and The Walking Dead will return from a quick holiday break. Many new shows like The Mick, Planet Earth II, and The Young Pope will debut. Throw in a few TV movies (Beaches, Christmas special Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio) and some events (Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour, Hairspray Live!), and we’ll call it “Winter TV.” Here’s the big list of upcoming premiere dates, starting in December through February. We’ll update this list as more dates are announced.

From the highly acclaimed to the aw-that’s-a-shame, these are the best and worst reviewed television series by network. Unsurprisingly, networks with just a few shows, like BBC America and TBS, fared much better overall than those with more. Even with 10 shows on the docket, though, HBO still managed to stay entirely Fresh; its lowest-rated series is Animals at 60 percent. See below for the full breakdown.

Networks

Series included are currently on the air and have not aired their final episode as of May 18th, 2016.
