It's always more fun to be inclusive when it comes to NBA midseason awards. So for every Kevin Durant (our most valuable player), we like to mix in a Larry Sanders (most exasperating) or a Kendall Marshall (most unlikely rise to a starter). Here, then, are the picks for the most fascinating teams, players and entities besides Jeff Hornacek (our coach of the year), Michael Carter-Williams (rookie of the year), Lance Stephenson (most improved player) and Jamal Crawford (sixth man of the year)

"About a Boy," based on the Nick Hornby novel, will air its first episode on Feb. 21 following the wrap-up of Olympics coverage for the day. But its regular time slot premiere will be Feb. 25, following "The Voice" at 9 p.m. The other new comedy, "Growing Up Fisher," about a family going through a divorce, starring J.K. Simmons and Jenna Elfman, will make its first appearance during the Olympics on Feb. 23 before its regular time slot debut on Feb. 25 following "About a Boy" at 9:30 p.m. "Believe," the new suspense drama from J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron, will premiere a few weeks after the Olympics, with the first episode getting a preview following "The Voice" on March 10 before settling into its regular time slot on March 16 at 9 p.m. WINTER TV PREVIEW: Full coverage of the season's shows NBC's other new drama, "Crisis," starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney as a Secret Service agent who stumbles into an international crisis during his first day on the job, will also premiere on March 16, following "Believe.

Well, it looks like “Revenge” isn't so sweet after all. ABC announced its upcoming midseason premiere dates for new and returning shows - and from the looks of it, its taste for “Revenge” has soured a bit. Beginning March 9, the sudsy drama will vacate its 9 p.m. slot on Sundays and head over to 10 p.m. The move comes as the third-season drama, once a solid performer for the network, has experienced dips in its ratings. The shift opens the plum 9 p.m. Sunday slot for freshman drama “Resurrection,” which had been slated for the 10 p.m. period.
