Doux News: 2013 Premiere Dates

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the season of Santa, it was the season of hiatus, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had streaming TV before us, we had no new shows before us, we were all looking towards the winter television season…

So here’s a schedule of the upcoming show premieres and returns! We’ll update this as more shows become available, and there’s a link on the blog’s right sidebar to help you keep track. Let us know in the comments if there’s a show you want us to add to the list. (It’s perfectly appropriate to use this page as your personal TV calendar. That’s how much we love you.)

And now I’m off to watch a far, far better show than I have ever seen…


  1. That feb. 7th is BETTER to remain the same !!!

  2. Some additions from my personal calendar: Bunheads returns Monday, January 7 and Cougar Town returns on Tuesday, January 8 (now on TBS!).

  3. Is that Being Human premiere for the British or American version?

  4. It's for the American version. There is no official airdate yet for the British version but it will start sometime next month.

  5. Am I going to be the only person watching THE AMERICANS?

    I saw a promo for DO NO HARM this afternoon, which they should have titled "DO NO HYDE" or something like that. I'm going to give it a shot because the lead was on my beloved RESCUE ME.

    THE AMERICANS, since it's on FX, may run a few seasons.

    I think DO NO HARM will end up like AWAKE and THE RIVER – running one season.

  6. The Americans sounds good! I hadn't heard of it. I've added both it and Do No Harm (as well as Jess's suggestions) to the list.

  7. Are you (I hope!!!) going to review them, Josie?

  8. No plans as of yet, HBR. I bit off more than I could chew this fall, and I'm sorta looking forward to a relaxing winter season. Once Fringe ends, I'll just have Vampire Diaries until Game of Thrones starts up, and (unless some new show captivates me), that sounds like a nice break.

  9. One of my friends keeps trying to get me to watch VAMP DIARIES. Every week she hits me with texts about the show.

    On the other side, I have a new, but close, buddy who bombards me with texts and pics to get me to watch GAME OF THRONES.

    Then there's a cabal of acquaintances who blast me for dropping FRINGE after the third or fourth episode of season one.
