Ready the slow cooker, fluff up the throw blankets. Winter is upon us. But with this hibernation comes the modern joy of year-round programming: In addition to shows that started off in the fall, the next few weeks bring us returning favorites that have been gone for a good, long while. And then there are all the shows that are new for 2016. It's a lot of shows — enough that you might wonder just how much TV you're committing to these days. Wonder no more: Just as we brought you in the fall, Vulture's now providing a TV Commitment Calculator for the winter season.
