Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of May 2nd: Person of Interest is Back for its Fifth and Final Season




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.

person-of-interest-S5After a long wait (and some rather disrespectful scheduling on the part of CBS), Person of Interest is back for its fifth and final season. It bows on Tuesday at 10 PM EST and starting next week it will run Mondays and Tuesdays in that 10 PM hour until it wraps up its final thirteen episodes.  Also premiering this week is FOX’s Houdini & Doyle which gives us a turn of the century X-Files of sorts.  That one comes as part of a partnership with the British ITV network.  Next week, season finales kick into high gear and we still have some more Spring premieres on the way.  You can see the full schedule at this link.

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.
