2013 Midseason TV Premiere Date Schedule

With 2013 right around the corner, it's time to start looking ahead at the winter TV season. We've begun gathering the return and season/series premiere dates for many of the network and cable TV shows, including Community, Smash, Touch and some of the new shows (The Following, Do No Harm and Banshee).

As usual, this list is a work in progress. Some of the networks haven't scheduled return or premiere dates yet. We'll keep updating as the dates are scheduled or changed. In the meantime, if there's a show you're looking for but don't see, let us know in the comments and we'll see if we can track down the date!
