TV Premiere Dates & Schedule for January 2020

The Bachelor 2020 Cast

ABC Peter Weber is the 2020 star of The Bachelor.

As 2019 draws to an end, TV enthusiasts can say goodbye to the dozens of holiday specials, Christmas classics and winter reruns that filled the December schedule. 2020 is bursting with returning TV favorites, new series, reality dramas and family sitcoms to ring in the new year, so if you’re looking to spend January curled up inside under a blanket with the remote control, you’ve got plenty to choose from.

Shows like Supernatural, Doctor Who and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are all returning this month, while the highly-anticipated new season of The Bachelor premieres on January 6. Reality television favorites like Married at First Sight, Love After Lockup, Sister Wives and My Big Fat Fabulous Life all return as well, alongside several TV specials, the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards and the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
