What are you looking forward to returning?
New shows?
So far, Grimm is back in fine form, and holy shite, Downton Abbey is back and off to a roaring good start with Shirley MacLaine going head-to-head with Maggie Smith! I'll call the first round a draw, but we'll see who wins in the end.

It’s hard for me to get excited about what’s on the “big prime time” networks anymore. Most of the shows I really follow are already halfway through their seasons or start several months’ from now on basic cable (Covert Affairs, Burn Notice, & Justified) or on the premium movie channels (Boardwalk Empire & Strike Back).
I always look forward to South Park to see what person or fad that Matt & Trey will just take a piss on next. Just when I thought Matt & Trey were losing their touch this season, they came up with that hilarious "ButterBalls" ep where they take on the Bully documentary controversy. NCIS L.A. has grown on me & I wonder what consequences Callen is going to face after he disobeyed orders & killed Christopher Lambert’s terrorist leader in front of several TV news cameras in last season’s finale. Castle finally ended the will they or won’t they hook up with Beckett & Castle & I fear the show will only go downhill from there.
The only new shows on the big networks that I might give a shot are Vegas & Arrow. I’ll only watch Vegas due to Michael Chiklis, who I will forever worship for his incredible work on The Shield. As for Arrow, I like how the CW remade Smallville into a Superman-lite action show in its’ last few seasons, so I can hope for the same quality. However, if Arrow is only going to be about the 99% vs. the evil 1% rich people (except for Arrow/Oliver Queen who is the only good billionaire in the world, of course) then count me out.

Don't know what makes it to different parts of the world, but the BBC's production of Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End has been excellent. Those who love a bit of upper-class soap will be pleased to see a third series of Downtown Abbey back on the screen.

Any other countries do a home version of Only Connect (niche audience/cult quiz on BBC Four, well scheduled to follow University Challenge on BBC Two)?
