Did we miss your favorite show? What shows are you looking most forward to and which are you hoping will receive a last minute cancellation? Discuss below!

I am a ridiculous, mess of a person, who spends far too much time thinking and writing about fictional characters and their relationships. I watch massive amounts of television as a substitute for human interaction, because let's face it, it's a lot more fun to pretend that Nate Archibald and Rory Williams are your bffs than to go outdoors and deal with real people.

    Thanks for the list, but it would be great to mark new shows somehow… maybe with a bold font or a different color. 🙂
