2012 Winter TV Preview: Midseason So Far

With ''Work It'' already canceled, how are the other early-January premieres faring? We survey the field

Alcatraz
Mondays, 9 p.m., Fox
Prisoners who vanished decades ago, and Lost's Jorge Garcia, reappear in the present to wreak havoc and pique our curiosity.

Are You There, Chelsea?
Wednesdays, 8:30 p.m., NBC
We wanted to like this sitcom based on Chelsea Handler's memoir (with Laura Prepon as a crass bartender). But then we watched it.

Caged
Mondays, 10 p.m., MTV
This reality show about small-town MMA fighters struggling to establish themselves is packed with both action and emotion.

The Finder
Thursdays, 9 p.m., Fox
The Bones sorta spin-off stars Geoff Stults as a war vet with a unique ability to find things...except, it seems, an exciting love interest.

Jane by Design
Tuesdays, 9 p.m., ABC Family
A high school student accidentally lands a gig as an assistant to a fashion designer; the jury's still out on whether this lighthearted teen drama deserves to make the cut.

Rob
Thursdays, 8:30 p.m.., CBS
Rob Schneider as a longtime bachelor who marries into a Mexican-American family is a hit with viewers (if not critics).
