With the new year come new shows and new seasons of returning ones.
Justified comes back to FX on Jan. 8 (10 ET/PT). In the fourth season, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) looks into a three-decade-old cold case that connects to his childhood and his criminal father. At the same time, Raylan's longtime antagonist, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), finds his own power threatened by a Pentecostal preacher skilled in theatrics and manipulation.
On Jan. 17, Charlie Sheen's Anger Management returns to FX with new, back-to-back episodes (9 and 9:30 ET/PT), part of a 90-episode order made after the comedy's initial run earlier this year. It will then move to its regular time slot, Thursdays at 9:30 ET/PT.
The animated Archer returns to FX for a fourth season on Jan. 17 (10 ET/PT), with Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell back with new episodes at 11. In between, FX will launch a new comedy, Legit (10:30 ET/PT). which stars Jim Jefferies as an edgy, foul-mouthed comedian from Australia struggling to make his life and career more "legit" in L.A.
AMC will launch a new unscripted programming night on Feb. 14, kicking the evening off with the final eight Season 2 episodes of Comic Book Men (9 ET/PT), followed by two new series, Freakshow (9:30 ET/PT) and Immortalized (10 ET/PT).
Freakshow is a family drama that focuses on former music producer Todd Ray's dream to own and operate a freak show on the Venice Beach boardwalk in California. Immortalized looks at the world of taxidermy; in each episode, one of four well-regarded "Immortalizers" faces off against a challenger in the taxidermist's art.
The second seasons of two other unscripted series, The Pitch and Small Town Security, will run later in 2013, as will a new series, Road Show.
In the second half of 2013, AMC will present another new unscripted show, Owner's Manual. In the eight-episode series, two men, Ed Sanders and Marcus Hunt, will take separate approaches to challenges involving the use of machinery and technology, one working strictly by the rule book and the other relying only his instincts.
