It used to be that new TV shows premiered in September, ran through May and showed up as re-runs all summer. Much has changed. Shows now start all through the year. In fact, I'm looking forward to the start of Season 5 of "Portlandia",  tomorrow night (Thursday).

Thankfully, "The Hollywood Reporter" has put together a calender showing the premiere dates for TV shows, mini-series and documentaries this winter and spring. I stumbled on this while looking up the exact date for the premiere of the new show, "Better Call Saul" - the spinoff of "Breaking Bad". That will start on February 8th.

In fact, February 8th will be a HUGE night for the AMC channel.
