Burn Notice has been renewed for a 4th Season.
Once we get through the rest of November sweeps, and the bleakness of the holiday-season TV landscape, it’s time for midseason replacements.
Networks are starting to announce the premiere dates for new and returning series.
Here’s what we know so far:
On USA Network, “Burn Notice” returns for the back half of its third season on Thursday, Jan. 28, at 9 p.m.
It will be followed by new series “White Collar,” which moves to a new night and timeslot at 10 p.m. The freshman series ends its current batch of fresh episodes on Friday, Dec. 4.
Also on USA, “Psych” returns on Friday, Jan. 29, at 10 p.m. with the back half of its fourth season.
Over at ABC Family, original dramas “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and “Make It or Break It” return on Monday, Jan. 4, at 8 and 9 p.m., respectively.
“American Teenager” will complete its second season with 12 new episodes, while “Make It” concludes its freshman season with 10 new episodes.
Both had been scheduled to return on Jan. 11, but ABC Family moved them up a week.
And as of Jan. 25, when “Greek” returns at 10 p.m., ABC Family will create its first three-hour block of original programming on Monday nights. “Greek” will have 10 fresh episodes to round out its third season.
Finally, WE tv’s “Little Miss Perfect” returns for its second season on Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 10 p.m. The hourlong reality series explores the ins and outs of the junior beauty pageant world, offering revealing behind-the-scenes footage of the families, contestants and professional experts who participate.

TALLAHASSEE — Better known as a spy who uses special ops training to help people, Jeffrey Donovan played a lobbyist for the TV news cameras Tuesday to highlight the economic impact his show brings to South Florida.
The star of USA Network’s top-rated Burn Notice, Donovan was at the Capitol to lobby for more state film incentives and to help announce the new film, entertainment and television legislative caucus.
Flanked by about a dozen lawmakers, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink and State Film Commissioner Lucia Fishburne on the Fourth Floor Rotunda, Donovan relayed one example of how his show pumps up South Florida’s economy.
While filming an episode in the second season, the film crew befriended a flower vendor near Hialeah. The next season, a writer for the show crafted an episode around a similar flower vendor and the show paid $10,000 to rent out his shop for a day.
“The impact locally was, for this gentleman, enormous,” Donovan said.
Fishburne said Burn Notice has paid more than $28.4 million in Florida wages and is responsible for booking more than 7,000 hotel room nights.
Of the $10.8 million incentive budget in the current fiscal year, the TV show will receive $5.2 million.
“It has truly become an incentives game,” Fishburne said.
State Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee, formed the new film industry caucus, which counts 20 lawmakers as members.
“The purpose of the caucus is to put a spotlight on the industry so we can regain our competitive edge,” she said.
Florida has slipped from third in the country behind California and New York to out of the top 10 in terms of the number of productions shot in the state.
