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.
This week, AMC’s The Walking Dead resumes the post-Rick Grimes era as that series returns from its Winter hiatus on Sunday. Also returning is the discussion series The Talking Dead which airs immediately after this week’s new TWD episode. For those who can’t wait until next week, the episode will be available immediately after the Super Bowl if you are a subscriber to the AMC Premiere streaming service. Several shows will be in repeats or preempted this week as the broadcast networks try to pad out their regular season schedules. FOX’s The Gifted gets preempted for a second week in a row by the State of the Union address (assuming it will actually happens this time). Gotham and The Orville will be in repeats for that network on Thursday. CBS will preempt MacGyver and God Friended Me on Friday and Sunday respectively. And the schedule is currently showing The CW’s Supergirl and Charmed as being in a second straight week of repeats. Also, DC Universe’s Young Justice wrapped up the first half of its third season last week and returns with new episodes in June. Apart from that, it will be business as usual and you can see the full Mid-Season 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.
