Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
Season 5 will not likely be many fansí favorite, as Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) took on the polarizing Crowe clan, whose Floridian upbringing imbued them with an unwavering sense of menace that Justified hasnít wholly embraced before, as it never really had to. When your mainstay bad guy, the magnificent Walton Gogginsí Boyd Crowder, is one of the most predictably dangerous men walking, thereís no need to up the ante elsewhere.
Justified, FXís highly acclaimed (seriously: everyone loves it) and beloved crime drama will bow out after its upcoming sixth season, the head of the network confirmed on Tuesday. Indeed, the Elmore Leonard-based television series will step down from its freewheeling, cowboy-esque ways following several years as the networkís top programs.
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Mack's list, which begins with an underrated procedural at #5.

Stop me when this hits too close to home. Itís winter. You donít particularly want to go outside because itís cold. Unfortunately, staying home isnít particularly exciting because an overwhelming majority of television is on hiatus. So, youíre stuck between Monopoly and freezing your damn toes off, right? Wrong.
FX and FXX have begun to lay out their midseason plans. For FX, that includes the returns of Justified and Archer, as well as the premiere of Chozen, an animated comedy originally slated for FXX, but has been moved to FX to join Archer on Monday night. Meanwhile, FXX will pair Ali G: Rezurection with the return of Jim Jefferies comedy Legit in February. Also set to return in February is The Americans, which will begin its second season on FX.
The criminals in FXís drama series have caused problems for reluctant Kentucky Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) over the years, but in Season 4, his tenuous relationships with the local criminals keep reaching breaking points, making for 13-episodes of television that should not be missed. Soon, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing Justified: The Complete Fourth Season onto Blu-ray and DVD.
FX is adding a new project and renewing a second. First, Justified will be getting a fifth season. With ratings increasing in the currently airing Season 4, this really should be no surprise for fans. Maybe itís the better access to Boyd and Ava that is bringing people in. Additionally, it seems the Coen brothersí Fargo project is actually happening and will air on FX.
If nothing else, Justified is about conflicts in personality. Itís about two men, or a man and a woman, testing each otherís wills and trying to exert their force on the other. Itís about Raylan trying to gain the edge on Kentuckyís greatest outlaws, businessmen, and thieves. So, without further ado, here are Raylanís greatest match-ups in the history of Justified.
Justified premieres Season 4 tonight on FX, introducing new mysteries and obstacles for U.S. Marshal Raylan Givins and the people of Harlan County. Mixing drama and suspense with a hint of humor and a few dashes of violence, Justified doesn't waste much time getting the ball rolling on Season 4's story. And as a bonus, the premiere includes an appearance by Patton Oswalt.
Justified started as a show about a misplaced Deputy U.S. Marshal, re-acquainting himself with his southern Kentucky roots. Over the past three seasons, Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) has fallen back into the rhythm of Harlan County, Kentucky, giving us a much closer look at some of the areaís most colorful residents.
FXís Justified is gearing up for Season 4, and some brand new bad guys, as well as many of the usual suspects are returning to the crime dramaís lineup. Now, Lostís Sam Anderson has signed on for the Season 4 cast of FXís awesome drama, and it looks like his character will be into some deep shit (although, if thatís a surprise for anyone, you clearly donít watch this program).
It wasn't that long ago that we last saw Timothy Olyphant on FX thanks to a great cameo on The League but it doesn't really compare to getting to see the actor grace the small screen in his ten gallon as U.S. Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens. The Season 3 finale of Justified was months ago and it feels like forever since we last saw Elmore Leonard's lawman touting his shotgun in an attempt to clean up his childhood home of Harlan Country. Well, The wait is almost over.
When FX decides to set premiere dates, the network doesnít mess around. For fans who have been looking forward to new seasons of Justified, Archer, and Anger Management, or who are wanting to check out the networkís brand new comedy, Legit, will be able to do so sooner than anyone may have expected.
