Couple of Notes on Commenting…

If your asking about an air date show, please make sure it isn’t in the list already. Easiest way to do this is to use your browser’s ‘Find’ function (‘Ctrl & F’ on a PC, ‘cmd and F’ on a Mac).

Also, if you’re asking for a returning air date, it really helps me out if you know which channel it’s airing on currently to post that in the comment.

I know a lot of the TV shows, but the more info you can leave me, the easier it is for me to check. :)

  1. R Thomas says:


    Any news about Community being aired in the UK? I think Season 1 was on Viva – not sure if Season 2 has been aired yet. Season 2 seems to be already available on DVD in the States (but not on Region 2 yet).

    Brilliant website! :-)


  2. Danielle says:

  8. Victoria says:

  11. Sam says:

    • MisguidedSumo says:

  13. Katie says:

    Do you know if the US version of The Voice will be aired in the UK?

  14. Kat says:

    Do you know when Pan Am will be back on?

  15. Dan says:

    One Tree Hill starts in the US in a few days, any chance it might get shown here close to the US date considering in past years Glee would be shown mondays on E4 starting January and then One Tree Hill would take over Glees slot in June but since Glee has moved to Sky 1 so One Tree Hill can take that spot hopefully very soon.

    • Jamie says:

      It seems unlikely.

      Though Channel 4 didn’t really confirm this when I spoke to them.

      I believe since “One Tree Hill” started in 2003—they have an old contract where they have to wait until it’s finished in the U.S. to air it. I think things can only be broadcast a day after their American airing now because of illegal viewing online.

      I hope they can show it earlier, though.

  16. mark says:

    is series 7 of medium being shown again

  17. Carole Hayes says:

    Any ideas on fringe season 4 so far, being rerun in the uk again, before the start of the rest of the season? Thanks

    • Dan says:

      Season 4 continues in the US in a few days but Sky arent that great of keeping us caught up with Fringe so based on the last few years we could be waiting til around march or april time to get the rest of the season but hopefully sooner this year.

  18. Death By SnuSnu says:

    Please help me. Does anyone have any information on Season 3 of ADVENTURE TIME and when it might be playing in the UK.

  25. Louise says:

    Hi :-)

    Can you confirm when season 5 gossip girl will start and also the biggie- JERSEY SHORE! MTV says 10th Jan but not on my sky listing.


    • Dave Dave says:

      hi Louise,

      Gossip Girl i’d expect back in Feb on ITV2.

      Jersey Shore… Jan 10th listing is for season 4, episode 4, but I’m assuming your after season 5?
      They seem to run Jersey Shore a month behind the US (which started S5 on Jan 5th), so i’d guess MTV will run it in Feb… That’s purely a guess though!


  26. tv fan says:

    tim allens last man standing anyone know any uk air dates for that?

  27. Gemma says:

    The Vampire Diaries- ITV2 facebook page stated that it would definetly be back in February but date is to be determined

  28. Sarah says:

    Has a Town Called Eurika been cancelled? they left it a bit up in the air!!

  29. Sarah says:

    Does anyone know if/when Castle season 2 is going to be shown on 5?

  30. matt says:

    When will terra nova season 2 be airing on sky 1?

    • spiggle says:

      Its not even been decided if there be a season 2 of Terra Nova. The expected decision on that should be April. Rumours are that due to Terra Nova’s huge production that the makers would prefer a decision in February.

      If Season 2 does go ahead. Its likely to be September in the states and aired a few days later here.

      Nothing confirmed yet though :(

  31. Mark Wilson says:

    Dave and fellow Geekers. Apologies if I’ve missed this but…..has anyone picked up anything from the net etc about whether Sky will eventually allow Sky Atlantic onto the Virgin TiVo platform ?
    Cheers, Mark

    • Jamie says:

      It’s not about Sky letting them, and it wouldn’t just be for Tivo, it’s Virgin in general that it’s not on.

      Sky said in the beginning Virgin wanted the channel “on the cheap” and that was the last piece of info about it. Maybe they’ll keep it exclusive now.

      • Andrew says:

        Sky said Virgin wanted it on the cheap. Virgin said Sky were demanding an unreasonably large sum for it. Two versions of the same negotiations. It depends which one you believe. Personally I find the Virgin aspect more likely as it fits with Sky’s alleged monopolistic tendencies.

        • Jamie says:

          Not really–Virgin charges less for its Cable platform so in turn, have a smaller budget for channel acquisitions.

          It’s not even just Sky–Virgin has problems with, I always read about Channels not striking deals with them, and if they do, it’s ages before they come to Virgin.

  32. tv fan says:

    any air dates on tim allens new sitcom last man standing???

  33. Stephen says:

  35. Avalon says:

    FYI – Hustle’s been pushed back to the 13th of January, by the looks of Digiguide.

  36. Fozzie says:

    Any ideas on Burn Notice S5? I know the interim TV Movie was aired on Xmas Day so wondered whether FX would try and catch up a bit by showing it earlier in the year?

  37. mick says:

    hay any news on event comeing back

  38. grant says:

    can you tell me if any shows on Sky Atlantic will be shown on any other channels please.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Grant,

      I’d suspect this is unlikely for the HBO shows (for the next few years anyway!) The Sky/HBO deal runs till 2015, and gives exclusive UK rights to HBO’s archive, all new HBO-commissioned programmes and a right of first negotiation on all future HBO UK co-productions. I think it’s a similar deal with Mad Men and other show’s they’ve bought.


  39. Duncan says:

    Leverage – Season 3 is now due to start on 7 Feb – two weeks earlier than orginally planned.

  40. Lucylemonpip says:

    Does anyone know if there is going to be a Season 2 of Terra Nova?

  41. Lucylemonpip says:

    Thanks :)

  43. Lisa says:


    I’ve just gone to set my Sky + box for the Hustle on Friday 6th Jan and it’s not there!! I have a vague recollection that I’d seen it there before though! Any idea when it is on instead or where it’s gone. I was really looking forward to it….


    • Tommy says:

      Due to the Stephen Lawrence “Panorama” special that scheduled last-minute by the BBC, the 3-part drama “Public Enemies” which was scheduled to air Tuesday-Thursday got pushed back to Wednesday-Friday, causing “Hustle” to be pushed back a week. The new series will premiere next Friday (13th) at 9pm on BBC One. :)

  44. tv fan says:

    how about tim allens new sitcom last man standing? any uk air dates yet?

  45. Viv says:

    Any channels planning a repeat of the Battlestar Galactica series?

  46. Viv says:

  47. Chris says:

    Grimm to start at 9pm on Monday 13 Feb on Watch

  48. Terri marshall says:

    When will one tree hill season 9 b bk on e4

  49. Jess says:


    When is the 2nd part of Grey’s Anatomy be coming on??

  50. Natasha says:

    Hi there,

    Was just wondering whether Criminal Minds season 7 part 2 will be starting again soon as it just suddenly stopped and Sky Living said it was on a break but have not seen it advertised as coming back.


  51. Louise says:

    Any news on when The Big C Season 2 will air on more4? It finished in the US in September, I hope it’s not a summer one, that’s probably when Season 3 will be on in the US

  52. Kayla says:

    Do you know when The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl returns on ITV2 in January 2012?

  53. Dave says:

    thanks for the heads up on Seinfeld, was just complaining the other day that it’s never on!

  54. Victoria says:

    Do you know when gossip girl is returning?

  55. John says:

    Does anyone know when Homeland will be starting on Ch4? I’ve seen clips for show in the trails Ch4 are doing for upcoming shows/films for the New Year but i don’t see any times/dates.

    Does anyone know?

  56. Natasha says:

    Do you know when pan am will be returning to our screens ? Only the first 8 episodes have been screened over here.

    • spiggle says:

      Episode 9 was shown in the states on 4th December and episode 10 is due to be shown on 8th January. No word that i’ve seen from BBC on when its to continue. As with most US shows, this was on a mid-season break. It may start back sooner and BBC go to 1 episode per week. If BBC want to go to the 2 episodes a week again. Then it may be later in the year before they resume it.

  57. Kayla says:

    Any ideas on when Criminal minds (season 7) part two will be returning on sky living…

  58. Danny says:

    Is it wishful thinking that Sky Atlantic may do with Breaking Bad the same thing they have done with FNL, wait till its finished and then show it all.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Not totally, but i suspect if they go for Breaking Bad it won’t be until it’s finished airing in the US, as it’s due to end soon.

    • Ollie says:

      Saw an advert the other day on 5USA that featured Justified, Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad, no dates or anything but promising that Breaking Bad was on it!

      • Dave Dave says:

        Thanks Ollie, but i wouldn’t get your hopes up. I seem to remember FXUK using a similar trick, but the official word is still currently ‘Unfortunately, we have no current plans to acquire the broadcast rights to Breaking Bad season 3 or 4.’


        • Ollie says:

          Oh right, that’s not good! Going to have to buy series 3 on DVD then!

          Any idea if Sky will be playing series 2 of Romanzo Criminale?
          Any news on Justified series 3?


          • Dave Dave says:

            Justified S3 – Five haven’t got the rights (yet), but they are saying that could change.
            No idea on Romanzo Criminale.


          • digital artist says:

            totally, best thing on TV, is it possible for anyome to contact sky arts to see if they’re showing season 2?

    Hi, this site is great btw! Sorry if its already been asked but do you know about Season 3 Make It Or Break It, it’s usually on E4, and when it will air in the UK? Thanks :)

  60. Chelsea says:

    Anyone know when gossip girls back on?

  61. Nathan says:

    Sky Atlantic have just confirmed on their website and Twitter page that they’ll be airing all 5 seasons of Friday Night Lights. They’ve said February 2012 but an exact air date is yet to be announced.

    • david says:

      Sky are sayin only have seasons 1/2 of FNL showing to begin with, both of these have been on itv4 (season 2 was on in the middle of the night thou in 2010) and these have both been on virgin on demand last year

  62. mark says:

    does anyone know when time team is back

  63. Daniel says:

    Hi dave,

    Can you please contact sky living and ask them for the definite date for supernatural because I can wait any longer they got to have a February release for us UK fans because it’s the best and most watched television series ever!!!



  64. gemma says:

    Any idea when gossip girl season 5 will continue on ITV2? Also the vampire diaries season 3?

  65. naomi says:

    was wondering when bones will be back on sky living?

    • Natalie says:

      Bones wont be back for a while yet as its not back in the US till April

      • Dave Dave says:

        Hi Natalie,

        That’s actually incorrect. Bones is back in the US on the 12th of January. No sign of it on Sky Living yet though. I suspect it’ll come back in Feb, along with everything else.


        • Natalie says:

          Hi Dave, that Bones episode on 12th January is only a 1 off episode (which was supposed to have been shown before christmas) and then they are on a break till April. There was only ever going to be 6 episodes shown early & then then took a filming break for Emily Dechanel’s pregnancy.

  66. Jamie says:

    Just out of curiosity, I thought Sky Living stopped HOT IN CLEVELAND at episode 10 when COUGAR TOWN finished its season?

    For the last couple of weeks, Sky Living has repeated HIC in the early hours every day from the pilot. They aired up to 208 and then aired 213.

    Was that a mistake airing 213, or did I miss it first time round?

  67. jojo says:

    does anyone know when criminal minds is returning?

  68. Rebecca McGregor says:

    Do you know if the chase is coming back for a second season?

  69. Kate says:

    Hi, happy new year
    Is there going to another series of terra nova?

    • Andrew says:

      According to Jon Cassar, we won’t know until April.

      By the way Dave – green for part 2 returns – inspired thinking and very helpful.

  70. anne dalton says:

    Hi ya,
    Can you please tell me when Bones Season 7 is coming back on. They took it off at episode 5 ‘The Twist in the Twister’ but didn’t say when episode 6 was going to be shown :( It’s normally on Sky Living, wednseday’s at 9pm. Thanks :)

    Thanks for a great site :)

  71. tv fan says:

    still no word on last man standing???

  72. Ollie says:

    Hey, just wondering if you have any news on series 2 of Romanzo Criminale being shown?

    The site is excellent, really handy!

    Thanks :-)

  73. terry moore says:

    i have just finished watching the first season of starhyke and in the behind the scenes it mentioned a season 2 any ideas when or if this will be shown ??

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Terry,

      Just had an email from the Starhyke guys. They probably won’t know about season 2 till after April when all the international sales have played out. Starhyke is an independently made production, so there’s no network looking over their shoulders. It’s really a case of looking to see if the numbers are high enough for them as a company to justify making a 2nd series (which they are very keen to do!)

      Dave :)

  74. Jamie says:

    Judging by the description above only…

    Is “The Lying Game” just a teen version of “Ringer”?

  75. Daniel says:


    With it being January now tomorrow and a month until February the usual spot for supernatural so please can anyone give me good news on supernatural season 7 airing then or can someone ask sky living please.



  76. tv fan says:

    any word on tim allens new sitcom last man standing?

    also any word on the canadian primeval spin off?

    • spiggle says:

      On Primeval – New World

      – The series will be set in Vancouver, British Columbia, with 13 episodes commissioned. It will retain elements from the British series while introducing a new cast of Canadian characters.Corrie Coe (Bell Media) described it as “a parallel yet independent series”. In their press release, Bell Media said the “story and character development will move between the two series, uniting different plotlines.” Production is slated to begin in Vancouver in late 2011.

      The series will be broadcast on Space in Canada and on ITV in the United Kingdom

  77. Nicola says:

    Hi, is it true a spin-off series of Warehouse 13, but with HG Wells the main character ?


    • spiggle says:

      Rumour is that there is a Warehouse 13 spin off with HG Wells which is more Cyberpunk. Last rumour i saw was that it was in production with Jaime Harper starring as HG Wells.

      That rumour was about 2 months old

      • Dave Dave says:

        Hi Spiggle,

        Nearly! It’s Jaime Murray as H. G. Wells, possibly with Torchwood’s Gareth David-Lloyd as the sidekick. It’s still at the pitch stage at the moment. It’s not actually greenlit yet, but it’s ‘extremely likely’ it’ll happen. What we know so far is…

        It’ll be set in the 1890’s.
        It’s have a cyber-punk feel to it.
        It’ll will include artifacts, but it’s more of a Sherlock Holmes-esque detective story.


  78. Oya says:

    Do you know when law and order svu season 13 will return (showing sunday nights on universal channel before the christmas break). Many thanks

  79. Maggieg says:

    Can you please advise when greys anatomy series 8 is back on in 2012 on sky living

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Maggie,

      No sign of Greys S8 back on Sky Living yet. It’s back in the US on 5th of Jan, so it may turn up late Jan, but most returning shows seem to be coming back in Feb.


  80. Lisali says:

    Just wanted to say I love this site – thank you. Now for the questions!

    Do you know when the rest of season 4 of The Mentalust will be back in Channel 5? After last night’s episode they said the rest of the series won’t be on until ‘later in 2012’ – any idea when?

    Also do you know if any uk channel has picked up Season 5 of Chuck? I see above that Sky have said no, but no more news?


    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Lisali,

      Best guess at the moment for The Mentalist S4’s return is March, based on the fact they are rerunning S4 on 5* at the moment, and it’s be March before it’s up to ep 8 when it stopped. That’s pure guesswork on my part though.

      Still no news on Chuck…


  81. Peter says:

    Eternal Law starts on Thursday 9pm on ITV.

    It’s a new 6 part drama series about 2 angels who are sent down to Earth in the guise of lawyers.

  82. ryan says:

    heard anything about justified season 3 by any chance.


  83. Crim says:

    New Girl is available on 40D, WHAT?! It hasn’t even aired here yet

  84. Gman says:

    I would also like to know about Justified season 3. FX website says it airs Jan 17th but no mention of it on either FX UK or 5

  85. Sean Wabridge says:

    Can you tell me if Justified Season 3 is going to be shown by 5 USA?

  86. laura says:

    any ideas of when masterchef new zealand/ usa will be shown on Watch? Also, Really channel was showing repeats of greys anatomy which seems to have stopped at the end of series 2.Any idea when repeats of series 3 start?

  87. Mark says:

    Can you tell me when I could find a repeat of American horror story season one in the uk also what channel? Also when will shameless us season two be aired in the uk?? Thanks

  88. Graeme says:

    On Sky’s Nevermiss service it has Chuck as ‘Coming 2012’ for Season 5 aswell as Friday Night Lights which ties in with what you said about sky atlantic.
    Other shows are listed as UK Broadcast Status Unconfirmed so hopefully Chuck has a home.

  89. Chelsea says:

    When does season 2 of pretty little liars continue on mtv?

  90. Bethany says:

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I saw the advert for Lost Girl series 2 on SyFi and it says that it starts on 12th January rather the the 19th. Just thought I would let you know :)

  91. Gripper says:

    Happy Christmas all, and many thanks for keeping me updated on my favourite shows in 2011.

    The one I’m most looking forward to in 2012 is the new Aaron Sorkin drama for HBO. It was tentatively titled More As This Story Develops but that was always likely to be a bit clunky (if not a tongue-twister like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip).

    So just to let you know they have decided to call it The Newsroom – hopefully the only bland thing when it comes to this series. It’s supposed to start next summer so hopefully Sky Atlantic will show it then.

  92. tv fan says:

    also did i miss the first season of awkward?

    • Gripper says:

      You did but all 12 episodes of season 1 will be shown again on MTV from January 1st to 3rd. Episodes 1-6 from 9pm to midnight on New Year’s Day and episodes 7-12 from midnight the following evening.

  93. tv fan says:

    • Peter says:

      sorry andy, boardwalk empire season 2 is now finished.

      it has, however, been renewed for a 3rd season likely to be shown from Sept 2012.

  96. Emma592 says:

    Hi – new episodes of both Bones and Criminal Minds appeared to have stopped on Sky Living and they are now showing repeats of old episodes – do you have any idea when they will be continuing the new seasons? Thanks :-)

  97. BILL says:

    Does any one know when House and Law & Order SVU will be back in the new year? I hate it when they break for the holidays.

  98. BILL says:

    Just seen it advertised, Law and Order Criminal Intent season 10 (final season) Universal 15 Jan. and Harrys Law season 2 Universal 16 Jan

  101. Crim says:

    Hi, I just wanna know whether Gossip Girl will be repeated from the beginning of the season 5, I recorded episode 1 and 2, and forgot to series link them and have now missed all episodes since now apart from 1 and 2, thanks.

  102. efcmark777 says:

    Morning all, thought I’d jog back to one of the best sites on the net and ask if I imagined Harry’s Law season 2 starting mid Jan on Universal ? I watched the last episode last week and the trailer at the end seemed to be showing Harry in handcuffs….sure that’s not a first for Cathy Bates !

  103. steph says:

    Please can you tell me when CSI New York season 8 starts?

  104. Louise says:

    Digiguide has Sons of Anarchy Season 4 airing on January 18th at 10pm on 5USA

  105. Naomi says:

    I would like to know if they are thinking of carrying on person unknown? I know they only planned to do 13 episodes but they left it wide open and I believed it was a great hit. It was a great hit in my house and I would love to see more. Just wondered if they were considering it or if they are definitely sticking to the 13 episodes.

    • Jamie says:

      Hey Naomi,

      I don’t know if you know or not, but it aired the series finale over a year ago and it did really bad for NBC.
      It was intended as a mini-series for the summer and nothing more.

      The producers said they’d wrap everything up but I guess they didn’t.

  106. Naomi says:

    Could you please confirm to me that game of thrones season two starts in April/ spring. My sister told me that she got told that it had already started. I don’t really believe her as I keep an eye on sky programmes and I haven’t seen it and so I believe that it might be a repeat of season one as I have seen that they are reshowing it. I would mayst like a confirmation. Games of thrones it a big thing in my house. Thank you.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Game of Thrones Season 2 has not aired yet. It doesn’t air in the US till April, and Sky Atlantic will air it right behind the US. It is a repeat of Season 1 that is currently airing.

      Dave :)

  107. Arran says:


    I’m not sure if I already missed it but any idea when the Xmas eureka is airing on syfy?

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Arran… Hate to tell you this but it’s on right now on SyFy +1.

      • Peter says:

        but that was last xmas’s eureka wasnt it?

        then they are showing from season 4 episode 16 this week. friday’s is episode 19.

        does this mean ep 20 will be saturday and then this xmas’s show (ep 21) will be on new years day?

        • Dom says:

          Unfortunately, SyFy have confirmed that they do not have the rights to the Christmas episode as it is part of the next season package. Hopefully we will get it next year.

    Tuesday 10th January at 9 p.m.

  128. Tommy says:

    According to Digiguide, Body of Proof debuts on Channel 5 on Tuesday 10 January at 9pm…

    One could take from this that season 12 of CSI may premiere in a different timeslot or at a much later date than usual, such as March. Also, it appears that season 8 of CSI: NY will premiere a few weeks later this year due to CBB…

  129. Rebecca says:

    Any idea when the A Town Called Eureka Christmas special will air? Or have I missed? Thanks!

    • Duncan says:

      For reasons best known to Syfy, they don’t seem to be showing the Eureka Christmas special (4.21) – instead showing a repeat of last year’s specia (4.10)l instead.

      Especially odd as they are showing a three night run from the 19th consisting of that and this year’s Haven and Warehouse 13 Christmas eps.

      • Rebecca says:

        That sucks, it was seeing the listing for the Warehouse 13 special that made me think I missed it. Syfy is pretty rubbish.

  130. TOM says:

    could you find out when series 5 of burn notice airs in britain on FX

  135. Arnold J. Rimmer says:

    Hi, is there any news on the brilliant US sitcom Parks and Recreation being bought by one of the channels over here? I know it has been shown in Ireland, where they are finishing the first series on Friday 23rd. I am very surprised that no one has bought it yet, especially as they are on series four in America.

  146. Des says:

    White Collar Season 2 DVD is now scheduled for UK release on July 30, 2012, according to Amazon. Perhaps this indicates it will have finished its broadcast run by then?

  147. Jamie says:

    “Revenge” and “Good Christian Belles” both appear on Sky Never Miss.

    So glad they’ve been picked up. I wander by who?

    • tezza says:

      Sometimes Sky just put on popular US programmes on the chance some broadcaster in the UK picks it up, but by no means does it mean it is a definitive pick up unfortunately. They did it last year as well with plenty of the US shows and they are still there saying status unknown. However I for one, would be over the moon if they have been picked up for the UK!

      • Dave Dave says:

        Very true… As i’ve said before, it really should be called ‘Sky Blind Optimism’. It’s was designed for sending out the reminders a week before a show airs, and it works well as a ‘Never Miss’ service. But a show being on there in no way means it’s been picked up, so it’s useless for advanced air dates.


  148. Louise says:

    Any news on if Suburgatory has been picked up over here yet?

  149. Jamie says:

    Does anyone know if there will be season 2 of persons unknown

  150. Georgia says:


    Does anyone know if ‘The Fades’ got a second series?



    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Georgia,

      No news on The Fades, series 2 yet, but it performed well, and hit it’s target demographic squarely between the eyes, so it should have a fair chance. It’ll just depend on BBC budgets though. With all the restructuring and cuts going on their, it’s hard to predict what will get renewal on the Beeb.


  151. john says:

    is there any news about fringe series 5?

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi John,

      Fringe Season 4 (part 2) is back early in 2012 (it’s on mid-season hiatus (those US networks and their wacky scheduling!) Fringe is currently looking shaky for getting a season 5 renewal, but then it always looks shaky for getting a renewal, so that’s nothing new. Fringe suffers a bit from ‘Angel’ syndrome, in that it’s a pretty complex show at this point, so it’s hard for it to pull in new viewers.

      However, it’s popular amongst it’s key 18–49 demographic. So it really boils down to whether Fox want to risk replacing it with a totally untested show, and potentially alienating the dedicated viewership it has with Fringe for that time slot… It’s likely to be Spring 2012 before we know if it’s going to get a 5th season.


  152. Thornastor says:

    Body of Proof is coming to C5 in Jan 2012.

    NCIS S8 was starting in December but FAQ page has changed to too early to say when it be on:

  153. simon mordish says:

    do you know when terrestrial Channel 5 will be showing season 8 of NCIS and whether or not SyFy (UK) is picking up the final (?) season of Eureka and also if Channel 5 will be continuing Greys Anatomy. It has shoved season 5 n to a graveyard slot so I’m not that hopeful….

    thank you for your time and help

  154. Oli Miller says:

    Anyone know when The Border returns to FX?

  155. Janoleonard says:

    When is the next episode of ringer season 1 ep 11 on sky living

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Jan,

      Ringer is back in the US 31st of Jan, so it should be Feb 2012 for the rest of the season. Not officially confirmed yet though.


  156. Rob says:

    Sky Living have just announced that they’ve got the rights to Unforgettable. To air ‘early in 2012’

    • tezza says:

      Such an odd move, especially as it hasnt been rated that well in the States, why not just buy revenge instead or Once upon a Time.

      • Dave Dave says:

        To be honest, i’ve given up trying to guess exactly what motivates a channel to buy a show, as it seems fairly random and not based on ratings.

        I’m beginning to suspect it maybe someone sat in a room with a speadsheet, and some shows on DVD going ‘well I quite liked it, and I can fit it in this quarters budget, so i’ll buy it’. 😉

        • Jamie says:

          Sky Living likes to full their non-primetime schedule with procedural shows like “CSI” and “Bones” or reality series like “America’s Next Top Model”.

          It’s probably more valuable to pick up “Unforgettable” as it will repeat well. “Once” and “Revenge” are falling now and even if they make it to a second season, I don’t see Sky Living being able to use those to fill rerun hours like some of their other shows.

  157. Keith says:

    Any idea what is happening with NCIS in the UK on channel 5 season 7 was ages ago and there are no signs of season 8 let alone season 9. We seem to be falling way behind.

  158. naomi says:

    i was just wondering if anyone had heard about a seconds series to do with the fades. i got really hooked and they left it wide open for another series so i was just wondering if there has been any knows.

    i can believe Hawaii 5-O is back in january my whole family love it including my 8 years old brother. i am all ready wintering about a third series but thats me thinking way ahead of myself.

    Anyone know if Channel 5 USA still have the rights to the much underated show (IMO) “Justified” and if they will be showing it as near to it’s run in January 9in the US) as possible like earlier this year?


  166. Louise says:

    5* have the rights to the ABC Family drama The Lying Game and they will air it in the spring, according to The Hollywood Reporter

  167. Martin says:

    I couldnt help but notice but is Community not on the list? Amazingly they still havent started season 2 here and theyre halfway through Season 3 on NBC!!! Any longer and im going to be forced to download it online!

  172. Brian says:

    Sherlock’s mentioned in the ‘next issue’ section of the Christmas issue of the Radio Times. Guess it must be back in the first week of the New Year.

    • Brian says:

      I’ve just had a quick Google and it seems, at least according to Digiguide, that it’s New Year’s Day at 8.10pm.

  173. Liam Halls says:

    Is there any news when a UK network will pick up Once apon a time & Revenge?

    Surprised that knowone is interested in them. How comes networks over here like to pick up shows that get cancelled but the tv series that are still on the air don’t get picked up, its a bit stupid if you ask me.

    • Dan815 says:

      a BIT stupid????? LOL its the dumbest thing ever and we all pay the price for morons who dont know how to do their job!! they buy charlies angels even though before it even aired it had extremely negative reviews and low ratings and was eventually cancelled after 4 episodes!

      Oh and that terrible looking “comedy” Whitney that no one else likes and is getting cancelled after one season? well theyre saving that for SPRING this year!! and THAT my friend is the reason why we dont get potentially good shows like Revenge (which everyone is talking about and getting into!) and Once Upon a Time which is getting great ratings and will probably go more than one season. Good system geniuses keep up the…..whatever it is some morons paying you for XD

      • Andrew says:

        I suspect it is rather less stupid to the accountants.

        Much as we all dislike it, such situations almost certainly come from a desire to balance the books. Others may be able to confirm, but I would imagine a popular and successful new show such as Once Upon A Time is initially very expensive and may drop in price over time, whereas a show already cancelled, such as Charlie’s Angels is probabky very cheap by comparison.

        • Brian says:

          A view that would be accurate if it weren’t for the fact that E4 bought Charlie’s Angels well before it was cancelled.

  174. ChrisDuffy says:

    Any more news on when we will get Hell on Wheels?

  175. Anna says:

    Sky Atlantic also say they will be airing Luck, the new Dustin Hoffman drama in February

  176. Anna says:

    Sky Atlantic just tweeted that they have the rights to Smash

  177. andrew says:

    hi does anyone know when bedlam series 2 is on

  178. Kate says:

    Hi any idea when the 3rd series of the listener will be shown?

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Kate,

      Season 2 of The Listener are in March this year, so assuming the Canada & US air it around Feb/March again, it’s likely FXUK will air it around March 2012 too. It’s still a ‘best guess’ at the moment as the Canada & US haven’t even announced their air dates for it yet.

      Dave :)

  179. Bev says:

    Hi there is no Drop Dead Diva or The Vampire Diaries on your listings.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Bev, i’ve added those 2 shows in. Vampire Diaries should be back around February (no confirmed date from ITV yet) for the rest of the season. Drop Dead Diva has finished season 3, so won’t be till Sept next year.

      Dave :)

  180. Brian says:

    Weeds season 6 – 2nd January Sky Atlantic 10.15pm followed by season 2 of Funny or Die.

  181. Callum says:

    Hey, Dave! Great work on this list! I check back every week. Was wondering if you’ve got any news on Season 3 of Deadliest Warrior and Season 3 of The Life And Times Of Tim. Both were very prominent on Bravo and Channel One before they got shut down and I’m curious to see if anyone picked them up. Especially Tim. That show was ace.

    Also, the treatment that Breaking Bad and Chuck are getting here is ludicrous and pathetic. As a huge fan of both these shows (Chuck especially), it makes me feel rather betrayed with the way they’re treated (Chuck especially. It’s the last gorram season! You think Sky Living would at least be bothered to show that!).

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Callum,

      Can’t see Deadliest Warrior having resurfaced yet, so don’t know if it ever will. The Life And Times Of Tim is a HBO show, so Sky have it by default. It’s airing on Sky Atlantic right now, but they seem to be working their way through season 1 at the moment. Hopefully the newer seasons will follow.

      Cheers, Dave :)

  182. Louise says:

    Oh i do hope the FNL news is correct. It will make my year!!!

    Do you know when syfy will air Xmas episodes if haven and warehouse 13 and eureka they air sex 6 the in the us thanks

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Jason, just added – Warehouse 13, Series 3, episode 13 – SyFy UK – 19th December 2011 at 9pm (and pretty much repeated every day that week actually!) Not sure on Eureka. Looks like it could be New Year’s Day, but not 100% sure.

      Dave :)

  185. Fiona McCann says:

  188. Bryan says:

    wondering about Boss with kelsey grammar and uk air dates? Great site too, just found it today, big help.

  189. Danbot says:

    Any idea of its always sunny in Philly will be broadcast in the uk

    • Dave Dave says:

      Sorry, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of those shows that’s got lost somewhere over the Atlantic (along with Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights, (see updated list) and Chuck’s final season)… I believe you can get it on iTunes to season 6, and BT Vision have the first 3 seasons, but no UK broadcaster seems interested in picking it up.


  190. Anna says:

    Also saw an advert on FX that said True Blood is back in February :-(

  191. Anna says:

    NCIS Season 9 starts on 13th January at 9pm on FX

  192. Daniel says:


    Please can someone tell me when living will air supernatural season 7 I hope it’s February as I miss my favourite show too much to wait for June I don’t care about the break it will have if it starts in febuary because I need my fix of the best show ever created.



    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Daniel,

      Don’t know on Supernatural yet. It’s annoying as Sky could air it in Feb, and it would run without breaks as it’s far enough ahead by then… but they moved it this year to June, so there is every chance they’ll do that again… Just can’t predict it at the moment.


  193. paul davies says:

    When is season 2 part 2 of Walking Dead due to air in the UK Thanks Paul

  194. Travis says:

    Beavis and Butthead’s new episodes have been reviewed very well after starting in October 2011 in the US. Anyone have any news when (I assume) it will be shown on one of MTV’s collection of terrible channels?

  195. elliot says:

    i love leverage but i looked on fx and it is not on on the 6th of december please help when is it on

  196. Terry says:


    Any idea if “The Shield” last seen on channel 5 will be given a re run. I know the show is a few years iold now, just wondered if you knew if anyone had the rights to it?

    Love the site.


    • Travis says:

      Not the reply you were after, but Amazon’s price of less than 50 quid for all seven seasons of The Shield is amazing, and not an offer I’m going to resist for much longer.

  197. Anna says:

    Great article in the Guardian Dave. Thanks for all your continued hard work. It’s really appreciated


  198. allelmat says:

    can’t stand all these mid season breaks, by the time they start again i’ve lost interest. Plz say i’m not the only 1 who hates them

    • Andrew says:

      They are indeed dreadful, but as Dave has often said, it is a choice between that or waiting longer in the UK for the start so it can be shown uninterrupted. Hobson’s Choice really.

  199. Sue says:


    Any idea when Desperate Housewives Season 8 will be shown in the UK…we have already had season 7 which finished sometime around July 2011.

  200. Peter says:

    Walking Dead season 2 restarts after Xmas break on 17 Feb
