TVLine Shares Its 2013 Wish List for Walking Dead, Once, Community, Idol, Revenge and More!

Emmy love for an overlooked duo, a satisfying finish for a cult favorite and a Mad Men exit — those are just some of TVLine’s small-screen wishes for 2013.

PREVIEW | Hot for Winter: Your January Premieres and Finales Calendar

Last year, some of our dreams even came true: Dexter got good again, Fringe got early word of its fate and The Vampire Diaries’ Elijah got unstaked (but disappeared again, boo!). And two wishes that didn’t become reality are so dear to our hearts, we’ve included them again! Since we’ve been extra good this year — have you seen all the scoop we brought you? — we think it’s only fair that the TV gods deliver on those and all our hopes for Revenge, The Good Wife, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory and many more shows.

So here is what TVLine Founder and Editor-in-Chief Michael Ausiello, Editor-at-Large Matt Webb Mitovich, Senior Editors Michael Slezak and Kimberly Roots, West Coast Editor Meg Masters, West Coast Reporter Vlada Gelman and Contributing Editor Andy Patrick have singled out as dream TV scenarios in the New Year. (Coming Tuesday: TVLine readers share their picks.)
