Winter 2015 reality TV debut schedule

For me, this really is the most wonderful time of the year: the air is dry, the smells and sounds evoke instant nostalgia, and I get to watch repeats of Christmas Vacation and then spend 24 hours watching A Christmas Story. Also, it’s time for our updated list of reality TV show debut dates. There is a brief break between fall and spring shows, but reality TV isn’t taking a winter vacation: there are still 20+ shows debuting in December.

This reality TV show schedule is frequently updated, and includes the officially announced debut dates of new and returning series. Times are ET/PT; because TV networks change their schedules and repeat episodes, check your guide or other TV listings.

Is something missing? Has a day or timeslot changed? Am I missing a show? Please send any updates, additions, or corrections to me. For all the shows that premiered before Dec. 1, check out the fall 2014 schedule.
