Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of April 18th: Premieres of Game of Thrones Season 6, Deadbeat Season 3, and Time Traveling Bong

By | April 17, 2016




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.

game-of-thrones-s6The long wait for Game of Thrones Season 6 is almost over as that show returns on Sunday (and it will be interesting to see how it and Fear the Walking Dead battle it out in the ratings).  Also, this week brings us the debut of Comedy Central’s Time Traveling Bong.  Billed as a three-night “event” series which will air Wednesday through Friday, it’s unclear at this point if that is a tryout for an ongoing run.  Also bowing this week is the third season of Hulu’s supernatural comedy Deadbeat which stars Tyler Labine.  Wrapping up is CBS entry Supergirl (that one is still awaiting word on whether it will be back for a second season) with plenty more season finales for the 2015-16 shows coming over the next few weeks.  But there is plenty more sci fi / fantasy on the way as the Spring shows continue to have their bows (you can see the schedule at this link) and the Summer entries are not far off either.

Links below are to the shows’ pages on our partner site CancelledSciFi.com where I am posting season to date ratings results and status updates.
