Weekly roundup of science fiction and fantasy shows (as well as movies/specials of note) on the Prime Time TV schedule, also including programs that may be of interest to genre fans. Air dates and times subject to change without notice.
We get one late Fall premiere this week as Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back on Netflix for its twelfth season (subtitled “The Gauntlet”) on Thursday for a Turkey Day debut. You can see the rundown of the movies the show will be riffing in its new season over at Den of Geek at this link. Wrapping up this week is IFC’s supernatural comedy Stan Against Evil which has it double-episode season finale on Wednesday (and it is looking like that one could be back for a fourth year). Last week, I whiffed of the series premiere of YouTube’s sci fi series Origins. That one came available for streaming on Friday and the first and second episodes are currently streaming for free. The remaining first season episodes are available if you subscribe to YouTube Premium. There will be a fair number of preemptions and repeats this week because of the holiday. And there is not too much in the way of marathons that I have seen so far other than AMC running a mini-marathon of The Walking Dead starting Saturday going into the new episode on Sunday. Feel free to chime in below in the comments if you know of any other marathons of interest this week. You can get a preliminary look at the upcoming mid-season schedule at this link and you can see the full Fall schedule at this link.

Schedule Notes: If a show is listed as On Hiatus, that means that it is taking a break of more than two episodes in a row. If a streaming series is included in the listings after its premiere date, then it releases new episodes once per week on that day as opposed to releasing its entire season at one time.
