Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of January 25th: Premieres of Lucifer, The Magicians, and More, Return of Grimm, The Originals, and More

By | January 24, 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.

More premieres and returns this week as mid-season continues to rev up to full speed.  For premieres, we have Lucifer (Monday on FOX), The Magicians (Monday on Syfy), and You, Me, and the Apocalypse (Thursday on NBC).  Also, on Monday The X-Files bows in its regular timeslot after having its post-NFL playoff premiere on Sunday.  Mid-season returns include Vampire Diaries and The Originals (both on The CW and moving to Fridays ), and Grimm (Friday on NBC).  Note that last week FOX announced that new series Second Chance was getting moved to Fridays (the first step toward cancellation, more at this link), and it is now showing up on the schedule for this week whereas previously it was not.  There’s plenty to watch this week with over thirty sci fi / fantasy shows on the schedule and still more coming over the next few weeks, so get your DVRs set because there is not possible way to watch all of these during their live broadcast!
