Don't worry, America. The networks didn't forget you over the holidays – they were just waiting for the new year to stuff their presents down the chimney.
This year, midseason starts with an extremely bustling January that brings back established hits, including American Idol and Justified, and introduces new series such as The Carrie Diaries.
Here's a quick rundown of which ones to watch – and which ones to skip. No re-gifting!

Timothy Olyphant seems to prefer pigskins to bowling balls. The Justified star was overheard talking about football at the FX Upfront party at Lucky Strike in N.Y.C. Thursday – when he was supposed to be joining his castmates at their lane. The event featured talent from seven series on the network (most of whom wore matching bowling shirts with their show names for a star-studded tournament).
One FX star who didn't don the uniform? Charlie Sheen, who talked about his show Anger Management with reporters and mingled amiably in a corner. Elsewhere, Archer's Judy Greer chatted with pals by her show's lane, and Louis CK made the social rounds as well.
Guests sipped cocktails from two open bars and nibbled on passed hors d'oeuvres like mac and cheese bites early, followed by warm chocolate chip cookies after 10 p.m. – right around the time that Russell Brand popped in to promote his new late night show, Strangely Uplifting. (No sign of the Brit in bowling shoes, however!) – Rennie Dyball
