Midseason TV Timeslot Wars: Which Shows Will You Watch, DVR or Skip?

It's 2013, and with the new year comes a new outlook, new resolutions and yes, even new TV viewing habits.

Midseason TV: Check out the day-by-day schedule

Not that there's anything wrong with the shows you already love, but some scheduling changes have necessitated a rejiggering of priorities. While some series aren't continuing past the midseason mark — XOXO, Gossip Girl! Adios, Partners! — new shows are stepping in to fill the void. And since most of us didn't get a second DVR for the holidays, we still need to pick and choose how these new offerings will figure into our limited viewing time (if at all). Below are four of the busiest midseason timeslots and our take on what to watch, DVR, skip or just watch online.

Question: I appreciate how you are one of the few critics who recognizes how good a family sitcom The Middle is. I'm not American, but I can so relate to the Heck family, and they really hit it right out of the park with the family dynamics. Frankie and Mike's 20th anniversary was another terrific episode, and I want to give kudos to Atticus Shaffer's performance when Brick told Axl why books are so important. Strong words that captured a lot from the joys of reading to getting to know the struggles of a kid who's socially inept. I'm happy this show lasted this long and will reach 100 episodes by next season. Now that the show has enough episodes for syndication, do you think The Middle has a chance to grow even more in the ratings? The current ratings are fine and actually lives to up its title, as it's right smack in the middle of the ratings race, not a blockbuster but a self-starter that does solid numbers. But the show is just so good, so I really hope more people will discover it eventually. — Jecoup

Top Moments: Kim Zolciak's Housewives Adieu and Homeland's Lame Death

Our top moments of the week:

14. Best (Worst) Performance: After Jess rebuffs Sam's attempt to win her back on New Girl, she changes her mind and decides to take him back. But to tell him so, she must sneak into the children's hospital where he works. When she and the gang run into a security guard, they follow Jess' lead and pretend to be carol singers. Although Jess is the only one of the bunch who can carry a tune and no one seems to know the words to "Come All Ye Faithful," she still belts an impressive "I don't know the words" to the tune of the classic Christmas carol. Sam magically appears, even more smitten with her than he was before. Dear Sam, we have a great idea for what to get Jess for Christmas: a.... read more
