A new year means a new TV schedule.
This week, we’ll see a number of familiar faces returning to primetime. On Monday, Brad Womack will play The Bachelor for a second time on ABC. The following day, Paula Abdul will come back to reality television with Live to Dance while Jane Badler will once again be featured in a series titled V.
As you will see from the schedule, Hellcats won’t be the only show airing on a new day. The Defenders will move to Fridays as will Fringe. Meanwhile, NBC has shuffled its Thursday night comedy lineup around.
We hope our detailed guide -- with information from the five major networks -- can assist you in the weeks to come. We’ve included the days, times and return/premiere dates for the midseason programs.
(NOTE: This schedule has been updated as of January 27. Don’t be surprised to see changes in the weeks to come.)

- 90210 (CW, 8 P.M.): "Dixon and Annie sign Debbie up for online dating, but she ends up with Ryan during a date." The dating pool in their zip code is surprisingly small.
- Giuliana & Bill (Style, 10 P.M.): "Giuliana encourages her niece to be a model and the encounter rekindle's Giuliana's desire to become a mom." She never quite understood the whole 'Stage Mom' thing until now.
- Hoarders (A&E, 10 P.M.): "A husband sleeps in his car because his wife's hoarding is so bad that he has no room in the house." The first husband in is the first husband squeezed out.
ABC had Vanessa Williams, FOX had an hour-long Family Guy and CBS had a must-see watermelon mishap – but those three networks were missing one important thing: football. The gridiron action in Miami was hot enough to win both the demos and viewers for NBC.
- Approximately 15.9 million (6.5/16 in 18-49) saw the New York Jets beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football.
- A late edition of 60 Minutes attracted nearly 13.9 million (3.8/10).
- Extreme Makeover: Home Edition nailed down 8.4 million (2.5/6).
- The Simpsons kicked off the evening with 7.8 million.
- The Cleveland Show (6.6 million, 3.1/8) slipped slightly from its lead-in.

- How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m.): “In the sixth season opener, Ted runs into Cindy (Rachel Bilson), whom he dated briefly—and who is also the roommate of his future wife.” He heard from a little bird (a.k.a. Twitter) that she wasn’t with Hayden Christensen anymore.
- Chuck (NBC, 8 p.m.): “Season 4 opens with Chuck engaging in a sweeping quest to find his mother (Linda Hamilton), all while keeping the rogue mission a secret from his sister.” The only clue he has to work with is the fading Polaroid picture John Conner gave him.

His judgeHe also thinks it would be smart to film a PSA.
Justin Timberlake will soon be “pairing up” with Jason Sudeikis for a project outside of Saturday Night Live.
Next February, the two actors will both voice gay characters in an episode of The Cleveland Show.
“Terry [voiced by Jason Sudeikis] falls in love with a guy voiced by Justin,” creator Rich Appel revealed. Of course, Timberlake - who has made people laugh with late-night sketches like “Motherlover” - should have no problem tackling this role. “Justin is just hysterical!” Appel added.
The singer also has a few big screen projects heading to theaters this year. Justin can be heard as the voice of Boo-Boo Bear in the movie version of Yogi Bear opening December 17. Meanwhile, The Social Network - co-starring Jessie Eisenberg - debuts on October 1.

This time, Kanye West is in on the joke. (I think.)
The rapper who failed to understand a “fish sticks” joke on South Park last year, will now be contributing his own voice to an upcoming episode of The Cleveland Show.
In the broadcast to air on May 2, Kanye (a.k.a Kenny West) gets into a rap battle with Cleveland Brown Jr. Of course, there is a girl (Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson) at the center of all of this.
