Totally Team Edith on "Downtown Abbey." Can't wait for Season 2 to start on Jan. 8.

My beloved AOL TV Squad has moved to HuffPo and I can’t find the easy monthly premiere and finale listings they used to post. Alas. So I went to CinemaBlend and found this nifty list of 2012 mid-season premiere dates. It will have to suffice.

*UPDATE*

As reader Bill noted, “Read your piece about AOL TV moving to Huffington Post. I miss their montly TV schedules too. I found a website  with a monthly schedule that I think is better than CinemaBlend’s. It lists three awards shows coming up this month — People’s Choice Awards, Golden Globe Awards and the SAG Awards. CinemaBlend’s list had none of these. Check it out:

So head there if you don’t get enough from what’s below. Thanks, Bill!
