List Criteria: Television shows that premiered between January 1 and December 31, 2013

The best new TV shows of 2013 include several dramas, a few comedies and a slew of original programming. Some of the shows listed here are midseason programs. Either they're replacing shows that were canceled in the fall of 2012, or they're entirely new shows that a network is adding to spice up programming. Either way, they're listed here. Which of these new 2013 TV shows is the best? That's up to you to decide with your votes.

Some of the 2013 TV shows listed here have already premiered, including the CW's 'The Carrie Diaries' and NBC's comedy '1600 Penn.' Did you like the shows? Hate them? This is your chance to sound off about what you thought, via an up or down vote for each TV show.

Some of the most highly anticipated 2013 shows include FOX's new drama 'The Following,' starring Kevin Bacon as an FBI agent who tries to track down a serial killer. FX has another promising drama making a debut in 2013, 'The Americans,' starring Keri Russell as a suburban housewife who is actually a Russian sleeper spy. NBC debuts 'Hannibal' in 2013, starring Hugh Dancey as an FBI profiler who teams up with Hannibal Lecter to hunt a serial killer. Sound intriguing?

Also, if comedy TV is your thing, ABC has a couple of 2013 sitcoms debuting: 'How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)' and 'The Family Tools.' FOX also has a midseason show, 'The Goodwin Games,' on tap.

As these new 2013 TV shows make their respective debuts, be sure to vote for or against them, and of course, add any great shows that might be missing.
