Are you ready for winter TV?
Let's be honest: the television calendar isn't what it used to be. Gone are the days when you could just wait until the fall for your favorite shows to return. But with old and just-launched streaming services and shortened seasons for shows, you need to keep a constant eye on premiere dates.
So what's coming up next? The major networks are bringing back favorites at the beginning of 2020 like "Manifest," "Undercover Boss" and "Homeland." New shows are also getting a boost from well-known TV stars including Edie Falco, Fran Drescher and Steven Weber.
