A Little Television... Shows back on in 2010

by Erin

I took the very last of my Christmas decorations down today. I know. SAD. I guess it really is time to let go of the holidays and settle fully into January. Wa-hoo. (You could cut my enthusiasm with a knife couldn't you?)

One nice thing about settling back into reality is that actually decent television returns. (I don't know about you, but I can only watch Rudolph so many times before I start wondering what Yukon Cornelius would look like without his head...)

And just so you don't miss the return of all your favorite shows, I've provided you with a list! (Thank you Michael Ausiello @ for doing the research!) Those with a star next to them are shows I really enjoy, and think you should enjoy too! (Some of these dates have already passed, but that way you will know that your show is already back and you better get caught up!)

And now it's your turn to comment back! Let me know which shows you love, and I'll do my best to keep you posted on all the latest news. My post will only be as interesting as you make them, so the ball is in your court people! Otherwise you're going to be hearing a whole lot about Bones, and Chuck, just sayin'!

Friday Night Lights comes back to NBC sometime this spring. It's Season Four but you have time to catch up! I honestly don't know a single person who I have pitched the show to who doesn't love it. It is the very best thing on television-and it's just about regular old life. You don't have to be a football fan AT ALL to love the show.

Also seconded-30 Rock and Glee! Not just a little great!
