    If you've cancelled Showtime or HBO because there are no new shows on for a while, I've started a handy list of premier dates for scripted shows, so you can see when to sign up again or what you're missing.

    I'll try and keep this up to date. Got any new info? Post a reply and I'll add/update the list.

    For launch dates on other shows, head on over to the calendar at The Futon Critic.

    Jan 2008
    The Wire (HBO, Jan 6th, season 5 (final))

    2008
    True Blood (HBO, Alan Ball vampire drama)

    Sources
    HBO, Showtime original series

    I think HBO has delayed Deadwood until June 2006.

    I thought I read that The L Word (Season 3) was supposed to be back on the air in Early January (Maybe January 8). Has anyone else heard this?

    mattc232: Deadwood and Big Love seemed to have swapped their March/June launch dates indeed.

    And The L Word does start up again January 8th according to AfterEllen.com.

    Thanks guys. Updated.

    Huff looks like it's back in the Spring or maybe even January.

    I've been keeping this thread focused on shows on premium cable, because of the unsubscribe/resubscribe angle. The Futon Critic has a great calendar that's a good starting point for premier dates for other shows.

    What's a multi-camera sitcom? Just what it sounds like? Then this implies that many sitcoms only use one camera?

    Err, not much longer. Apparently, I had to read it a 51st time until noticed the problem.

    It seems even the thread starter can't edit the title, so I'll PM an admin.
