What TV to Watch this Winter: 'Downton,' 'Girls,' 'Top of the Lake,' 'House of Cards' and More [VIDEO]

Thompson on Hollywood By Beth Hanna | Thompson on Hollywood January 2, 2013 at 12:26PM

Check out this photo gallery from the Daily Beast on the 18 TV shows to watch this winter. Included in the list are buzzy returning series like PBS' "Downton Abbey," HBO's "Girls," FX's "Justified" and IFC's "Portlandia," while intriguing newcomers like Netflix's David Fincher-Kevin Spacey collaboration "House of Cards" and Jane Campion's Elisabeth Moss-starrer "Top of the Lake" also make the cut. Left off presumably because it is already under way is BBC America's guilty pleasure second season of "The Hour," starring Romola Garai ("Atonement"), Ben Whishaw ("Skyfall") and Dominic West ("300").
