2009 Midseason Television Premiere Schedule image
Call it “Bauer: The Motha Flippin’ Return!” Call it “Joss Whedon Is Here To Unleash New Female Ass Kickingness.” Call it whatever you want, the 2009 Midseason is on its way. After over a year without a new season 24 returns, the Oceanic Six make their way back to the island, and my wife plans to subject me to weekly ear bleeding hours of American Idol. Old shows are returning, and those who go on a brief hiatus make a comeback. And really, all anyone wants to know is when it’ll happen.

We know. We want you to know. And that which we don’t know we’ll find out. Ya know? So, here’s how to use this schedule. It’s quite easy, and formatted in convenient list form by premiere dates. The shows below have been given their official – at least as of now – returning/premiering timeslots. Lots of programs will continue along as usual, and for them we don’t have a listing. Unless the network lets us know of a change or returning date some shows may be “missing.” But fear not, I’m fairly certain Desperate Housewives will be back. And as always with our schedules here at Blend Television things are subject to change. We’ll update whenever we get new information on a show’s return.

I hope you have your calendar handy.
