New Shows for 2011 (That Might Not Suck)

This is always a rough time of year for TV viewers -- most series are in holiday repeats, leaving you to fend for yourself with Netflix or actually having a conversation with someone -- but it's about to get better. In addition to the slew of returning shows we'll get over the next couple weeks, there are also some new series rolling out that might not be that bad, either. I say "might not be that bad" because it's impossible to know if a show will be any good when all you've got to go on is a trailer and some hype, but still, these look like they'll be worth checking out. (All times Central.)
