As the new year begins, so does a winter wonderland of TV premieres. Here is the most complete calendar of January 2017 TV premieres, movies and specials you are likely to find online or anywhere else. (Yes, my resolution is to better sell myself.)

I’ve long believed that January, the start of the winter/spring TV season, offers the very best programming of the year. Early 2017 looks promising, with new shows (“Taboo,” “Victoria,” “Sneaky Pete”), returning favorites (“Sherlock,” “The Expanse,” “Homeland”) and movies/miniseries (“The Perfect Stalker,” “Beaches,” “The New Edition Story”) ready to dazzle viewers. The nine titles I just mentioned are but a small, tiny, itsy-bitsy fraction of what’s coming this month. Strap in, viewers. To help you better decide what to try, I’m going to bold ital the shows I recommend.

(I admit it: I’m not perfect. Something is probably missing from this calendar, or I’ve made a mistake somewhere in it. If you see an omission, please send a kind note or leave a helpful not hateful comment. Thanks, and happy new year!)
