Fire up your remote. There are some very nice TV choices in store for the new year. Here's our rundown of some not-to-miss shows in 2011. JORDAN BARTEL, B
FIRST BATCH OF NEW SHOWS
"Lights Out" (Jan. 11, FX)
Holt McCallany ("CSI: Miami") stars as an aging former heavyweight boxer struggling in retirement. Looks equal parts "Sopranos" and "Raging Bull." (left)
"Mr. Sunshine" (Feb. 9, WMAR/ABC)
Matthew Perry's post-"Friends" gigs have been
suspect. But this comedy, in which Perry plays a San Diego sports arena manager, seems to be a wiser move.
"The Killing" (March, AMC)
Hopes are high for this drama about the murder of a Seattle girl. Crime-mystery sagas are risky, but if any one can pull it off, it's AMC.
"Body of Proof" (March 29, ABC)
OK, so it seems as though this is yet another procedural about a medical examiner. And it stars Dana Delany. But we'll watch anything with a "Wire" alum involved, especially if it's Baltimore resident Sonja Sohn.
