"True Detective" -- the HBO series starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as a pair of Louisiana detectives at work on very cold case -- has a date: Jan. 12 at 9 p.m.
And this: "Girls" returns that night, too, with a one-hour open, or to be more specific, two back-to-back half-hour episodes (and will return to a half-hour the following week).
Oh, and this: HBO also said the Jonathan Groff series, "Looking," will arrive that night as well. (Don't know a whole heck of a lot about this, but here's what HBO has to say: "The series revolves around three friends in San Francisco who explore the fun and sometimes overwhelming options available to a new generation of gay men." (App users, check out Newsday.com/tvzone for a glimpse of a shirtless McConaughey; imagine that!)
