Many of your favourite TV shows are coming back... but when?

The writers strike may be over, but its results are still being felt for television viewers everywhere. That's right, there's nothing on TV! Sure, there are a few good shows airing new episodes like Lost and Carpoolers (not to mention the world's greatest art form, reality TV!), but for the most part, we've all been without our favourites for too long already.

Not all shows are returning with new episodes this spring. Several series -- such as Heroes, Chuck, Life, and Pushing Daisies -- are all being held until the fall where we'll get a brand new season. But most shows are coming back with new episodes this season, and to help you figure out when the shows you've missed the most are returning, we've put together this alphabetized list (using the dates courtesy of E!Online's Kristin). There are also a few new shows premiering this spring that you may want to check out.
