Most Anticipated TV Premieres and Returns of 2013
From 'The Following' to 'Justified' to the end of 'Breaking Bad,' 2013 has lots in story
"The Carrie Diaries" (The CW, January 14)
The last time viewers saw Carrie Bradshaw, she looked a lot like Sarah Jessica Parker and she was already a snarky, hyper-sexualized contemporary Manhattanite. When this Josh Schwartz-produced prequel picks up, though, it's the 1980s and Carrie is a surprisingly earnest and innocent high school student who looks a lot like AnnaSophia Robb. If you're expecting a "Sex and the City" level of raunchiness, you're clearly looking in the wrong place. "The Carrie Diaries" is CW to the core. Or, with its surprising John Hughes-style sweetness, it may even be WB to the core. There will still be plenty of fashion, romance, female bonding and a killer '80s soundtrack, so don't worry.
