Lists by IMDb Editors
We're in the middle of May, which means it's time for networks to make some tough decisions (and, frankly, a few that aren't so tough) about what shows will survive to see the 2013-2014 season. Here is our list of the series that have made the cut so far. (If you don't see your broadcast show on this list, a decision is yet to be made about its renewal.) Check back for updates; the official full schedules for NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and The CW will be set by May 16.

Halloween is definitely the ideal time to watch as many horror movies and shows as possible, but while contemplating all things slasher/zombie/vampire we realized that some of the creepiest things we've seen on TV and in movies weren't actually intended as horror. Here are a few non-horror movie moments that mentally scarred us and still send a permanent shiver down our spines.

It's hard to believe it's been seven years since I have gone to the Sundance Film Festival. I'm super excited to return to Park City to cover for IMDb. My favorite part of the festival is discovering new filmmakers and talent. It may be hit or miss on some films, but it's always interesting. Here's a list of films that I will definitely check out.
It’s easy to pick out the highest-grossing movies of the year. It’s more interesting, though, to highlight what the biggest success stories are. That list includes over-performing blockbusters like Iron Man 3 and Despicable Me 2, along with surprise hits like We're the Millers and Lee Daniels' The Butler. – Ray Subers, Box Office Mojo

After we shared our list of movies and TV shows that we watch on Halloween, many of you replied with titles that you find essential to make your Halloween spookily perfect.

We may have reached the traditional television season's halfway point, but lots of new series haven't premiered yet. Among these upcoming series debuts are a few destined to have a place on several "Best of 2014" lists at year's end. Others will become guilty pleasures, while some may go as quickly and quietly as they arrive.
The shows listed here fall into all of these categories, and while I can't guarantee all (or any) of them will earn huge ratings or critical acclaim, I am intrigued enough by what I've seen of them to put them on my Watchlist for at least a few episodes.

Undeniably the biggest success story of the 2013-2014 TV season's freshman class, NBC's "The Blacklist" started out ferociously fast-paced and strong, and consistently raised the stakes as the story moved along. Over the course of season one, it became one of the few shows that fans didn't want to fall behind on; conspiracies grew more tangled as the secrets surrounding Raymond Reddington's true agenda began to reveal themselves.
But that's not the only aspect of this show that inspired us to watch each new episode as soon as it premiered. Here are a few of the reasons we can't get enough of it.
Although one of the biggest stories to emerge from fall 2012 was an overall decline in ratings, we were still able to come up with a number of reasons that we loved watching TV in 2012. In fact, we decided that we couldn't limit our choices to just 10 shows -- and we still left a few great selections out. It's important to note that this is not our idea of a definitive Best of the Best list, although many of the series listed here also occupy slots on many Best of 2012 TV lists. Rather, this is a list of shows that we not only loved watching in 2012, but loved encouraging other people to watch. With that, here are a few reasons why we loved TV this year, in no particular order.
