Fall winter 2010-11: UPDATED calendar of new and returning series debut dates

In television on 09/03/2010 at 7:46 pm

Hello again! I’ve tidied up the list of start dates for new and returning series for this winter 2010/11 season.

And of course if you’re looking for a show and don’t find it here, leave a comment or email me here. I’ll see what I can do. (Here, for you completists, is a link to the shows that  have already started, in case you need to look back to keep your  home score card up to date.)

Please note: All times are Eastern so if you’re elsewhere, recalibrate.

Also (ok, this is the last bit of fussing): Shows on AMC and the U.S. mini-network CW are a bit of a grind for Montreal Videotron subscribers to find. Videotron still doesn’t offer AMC or A Channel. When shows on those networks pop up, (like the new zombie drama Walking Dead, which premieres on AMC on Sunday, Oct. 31), I’ll make a note that they are otherwise available in the Montreal. In general, AMC shows are only on AMC, available on Shaw and Bell TV services and, occasionally as with Mad Men, on iTunes. Individual CW shows (like Supernatural, Gossip Girl) are often also available, even on Videotron!, on premium cable channels WGN/WPIX/KTLA as well as Space or MuchMusic. Clear as mud?

cheers
