As the first year without any books or movies to look forward to, 2012 is the year I finally stop talking about Harry Potter ad nauseum. Maybe. —Erin Strecker
After you click through our goals, tell us your 2012 pop culture resolutions!
I resolve to cry at LESS than 50 percent of Parenthood episodes. —Dave Karger
I want to play through both Mass Effect games — and journal about them for EW — before the arrival of Mass Effect 3. —Jeff Jensen
I will attempt to re-create a dish seen on Top Chef and not just watch in salivating awe. I will not play Words with Friends while stopped at red lights. —Laura Hertzfeld
I want to stop letting primetime TV dictate my moods in the morning. (Finale season leaves me positively depressed for most of May.) And I want to watch an entire episode of Glee without sending a ranty IM in all caps to my best friend, who I chat with through every episode. —Sandra Gonzalez
I resolve to lower the number of Bon Jovi songs in my Top 25 Most Played list from three to one (”This Ain’t a Love Song”). Sorry, ”It’s My Life” and ”Runaway.” I just can’t. —Mandi Bierly
My resolution is to watch less Food Network and more Cooking Channel, which is basically what the Food Network used to be seven or eight years ago, before it decided to play Cupcake Wars and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives ad nauseum. Cooking Channel is well-seasoned with quirky personalities like Chuck Hughes and Bitchin’ Kitchen‘s in-your-face Nadia G., who actually cook — and make delicious, but still accessible, food! —Grady Smith
I’m going to try to alternate nonfiction and fiction books this year. I do okay (not great) with fiction, but there are so many good nonfiction books that I miss. I need to make a concerted effort. —Mike Bruno
I resolve to wait until Friday to watch The Soup on my DVR. I don’t care if E! thinks it belongs on Wednesdays; The Soup simply tastes better on Fridays. Like a plate full of Chicken Tetrazzini. —Kate Ward
Sit through an entire episode of The Biggest Loser without eating. —Shaunna Murphy
Quit subjecting innocent people in movie theater lobbies to my painful photo ops under the justification, ”Maybe I’ll use this for work.” I won’t. Also, stop wearing purple sweats. —Annie Barrett
In general, I want to read more. There are too many good books out there, and it’s too easy to veg on the couch and complain about the character inconsistencies on Glee. In 2012, I’m going to spend a lot less time in front of the TV, and a lot more in the pages of a book, be it paper or electronic. —Anthony Breznican
If Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys’ 2012 tour lands at a fun, fun, fun L.A. venue (I’m thinking/hoping Hollywood Bowl), I resolve to take the cross-country flight to see it. —Steve Korn
