Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of December 26th: Holiday Marathons and DVR Catch-Up




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.

the-librarians-season-3We are in the thick of the Winter hiatus now and only two sci fi & fantasy shows that I know of have new episodes airing this week: Syfy’s Incorporated on Wednesday and TNT’s The Librarians on Sunday. Also on Sunday, Freeform is offering up special preview of its upcoming supernatural series Beyond which will have its first season debut the next week on Monday. Apart from that, we have the typical holiday time marathons on several of the cable channels.  BBC America will start running Star Trek – TOS just after 12 AM on Thursday and that will continue until until 10 AM Saturday. Then they will usher in the New Year with Star Trek Voyager starting at 4 AM on January 1st and going into next week.  Starting at 10 AM on Friday, AMC will run the first season of Humans (eight episodes), followed by the first season of Into the Badlands (six episodes), then launch straight into The Walking Dead which will go into next week. HBO will air all six seasons of Game of Thrones starting on Monday and running through Saturday. And of course Syfy will have its annual New Year’s Twilight Zone marathon which kicks off with TZ: The Movie at 6 AM on Saturday December 31st. And for those looking for a bit of levity over the holidays, IFC will start off a Three Stooges marathon at 6 PM New Years eve (sure, it’s not sci fi, but we love those knuckleheads anyway!).  If you know of any other notable marathons that I have missed, but sure to call them out in the comments section below.

Apart from that, now is the time to get caught up on your DVR queue, because Mid-Season kicks off in a week and will be bringing over 60 new and returning shows.  You can see the full schedule at this link.
