You're about as likely to lose weight, stop drinking, sort out your finances and write the great American novel in 2019 as you are to marry Sasquatch on a moonlit beach ceremony and ride off on a unicorn, but it's okay. Most people don't keep the resolutions they make for the upcoming year but, no judgments. Just staying committed to finishing a whole season of a new show is hard; so, keeping the resolve to turn over a whole new leaf can be downright impossible. Still, the beginning of a new year is an opportune time to think about who you want to be and what you want to accomplish over the next 12 months, and a lot of times all you need to stick with it is a little help. Fortunately, your friends at TV Guide have figured out a way to make it a little easier and -- surprise! -- it involves watching more TV.
