2008 Winter TV Premiere Schedule

Between the winter hiatus and the writers strike, it’s kind of hard to get excited about the new winter line-up. Will there be anything left to watch next month? Actually – there will be and thankfully, not all of the new and returning shows are reality and game shows. Ok, a lot of them are but sprinkled in between returning shows like Supernanny, Biggest Loser and 1 vs. 100, you’ll find new series like Cashmere Mafia and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Thanks in part toE!’s Kristin Dos Santos’ recently revised premiere line-up, here’s the winter 2008 premiere schedule (Just keep in mind that there’s a chance some of these premiere dates could change and there’s a list of series at the bottom that are supposed to premier this winter/spring but no date has been set):
