TV Calendar: Midseason Finales and Winter Return Dates

30 Rock, Glee, Grey's Anatomy, Vampire Diaries NBC: CW: ABC; FOX

Winter, you are truly cold. (Except here in Los Angeles. It's toasty warm.) When you come around, that means that our favorite television shows are going on hiatus, and sometimes we have no idea when new episodes return!

False. You will know when shows come back, because we've put together a calendar of midseason finale dates and winter return dates. Plus, a lot of series are premiering in 2012, so we've got those, too…

Unfortunately, we don't know the exact return dates for some shows (*cough* Community *cough*), so they got a "TBD." We'll constantly be updating this list as networks announce their midseason lineups, so you'd better bookmark this page.

And since we all know how much you guys love correcting us, please feel free to chime in if we've forgotten any shows!
