Looking Forward To... March Madness

No, I'm not talking about anything sports related. Please. I'm talking about the slew of mid-midseason premieres (or comebacks) that's about to come at us during the third month of the year. Here are a few I'm most looking forward to...

Awake (March 1st, NBC 10pm) - SERIES PREMIERE. The pilot has been widely available online and it's pretty glorious, definitely my favorite pilot in ages. A man, played by Jason Isaacs, lives in two worlds where either his wife or his son died after a crash. The concept is the selling point, but the emotions, the acting, and everything else makes me ache for a second episode. So everyone go watch it tomorrow!

GCB (March 4th, ABC 10pm) - SERIES PREMIERE. Looks to be a mash-up of Suburgatory, Hart of Dixie and Desperate Housewives. I'll check out the first couple of episodes because I love Kristin Chenoweth, but I'm actually not THAT excited for this.

Community (March 15th, NBC 8pm) - It was a dark day when this show went on its 3-month hiatus. Most of it was because its fan had NO IDEA when, if ever, it was going to come back. Ratings are low, but here's hoping NBC's still sad numbers and Jim Rash's recent Oscar prove advantageous for this.

Touch (March 22nd, FOX 9pm) - SERIES PREMIERE. Already reviewed its pilot episode when it had a special preview a couple months back. It's not great, but it has potential. Plus I do miss Kiefer Sutherland back on my TV.

Fringe (March 23rd, FOX 9pm) - Okay, its "hiatus" is only a month long, but the simple fact that this is one of my favorites shows and its ratings almost guarantees its cancellation, I'm looking forward to any time it comes back and everyone should know the date.

Mad Men (March 25th, AMC) - SEASON PREMIERE. 17 months. 17 months! That would be how long this show has been off the air with new episodes until it returns at the end of March. God knows if I even remember how last season ended, but I'm certainly glad to welcome back Don, Peggy, and the rest of the gang back to my TV.

Finally, even though these two shows return in March, I'd be remiss to not mention The Killing and Game of Thrones coming back April 1st for both of their sophomore seasons. TV|Line has a more complete list at March's various season/series premieres and finales.
