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.
Two more Spring shows wrap up this week as Syfy’s 12 Monkeys has its season finales (it has been renewed for a third year) and The CW’s Containment has its series finale (it was cancelled early in its first season). Also this week, Conan O’Brien makes his annual trip to the San Diego Comic Con Where his show is filmed live from the event and he brings on a number of guests of interest to the sci fi / fantasy / geek audience. The show will air from Comic Con at its regular 11 PM EST time slot on Wednesday and Thursday as well as Saturday and Sunday. Here is the guest list from each night:
Wednesday 7/20 – The Cast of Silicon Valley
Thursday 7/21 – Nick Kroll, Weird Al Yankovic
Saturday 7/23 – The Cast of Suicide Squad
Sunday 7/22 – The Cast of Game of Thrones
Also, Syfy will be doing coverage of Comic Con which will air at 8 PM EST Thursday through Saturday. And lastly, CBS series Braindead will be moving to Sundays at 10 PM EST starting this week.
